Soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo has found the perfect name for his mystery baby by calling him Cristiano Ronaldo.

His mum Dolores and sister Katia have been looking after Cristiano jnr at a rented £2.5 million villa on the Algarve, near Ronaldo's CR7 fashion boutique in upmarket Vilamoura.

"The baby is doing very well," Katia said. "We are looking after him while Cristiano is away.

"He's called Cristiano just like his dad. Cristiano chose the name but we like it.

"He looks like his father and like me. He has the same eyes.

"We don’t know the mother, we never met her."

Ronaldo, who is believed to be on holiday in the United States with his girlfriend Irina Shayk, announced on his official site, Twitter and Facebook page last week that he had become a father, but has refused to reveal the identity of the child's mother.

His sister added: "Some people may think it's strange, but we don't. We're very happy about what Cristiano has done."

Ronaldo's mother Dolores confirmed her grandson had been born in the US, but the family refused to say if the boy was born from a one-night stand or is a surrogate baby as Portuguese papers have claimed.

Reports in Portugal say the Real Madrid star picked a surrogate mother after twice visiting fertility specialists in Florida last summer.

The baby was born on June 17 weighing 9lbs 8oz, according to the claims.
