Cristiano Ronaldo announces that he has become a father of twins for the second time.
The twins join Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr, 7, who was born during a previous relationship.
Ronaldo revealed the news in a Facebook post following Portugal’s defeat to Chile in the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup.
“I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two children were born,” Ronaldo wrote on Facebook.
“Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese people. I’m very happy to finally be with my children for the first time.”
“The President of the FPF and the National Team were informed before the Confederations Cup by the National Team captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, that he had been a father,” read a statement from the Portugal national team.
