Table of Contents
Just days after his native Portugal were eliminated from the 2010 World Cup, soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo has announced that he recently became the father of a baby boy.

The 25-year-old revealed the news on his official site, and on his Twitter and Facebook page on Saturday.

He wrote: "It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy.

"As agreed with the baby's mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.

"No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are."

It was unclear whether the statement was genuine or the work of a hoaxer.

The Real Madrid ace, who has never been married, has never been in a relationship that has lasted longer than a few months.

Ronaldo, who has a well-earned reputation as a womanizer, has been known to date many beauties, including British actress Gemma Atkinson, aspiring Spanish model Nereida Gallardo, as well as socialites Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

And he has recently been linked to 24-year-old Russian swimwear model Irina Shayk.
