According to reports in the Portuguese media, the children, a boy and girl called Eva and Mateo, were born on Thursday.
SIC, the Portuguese TV channel, reported: “Mateo and Eva, those are the names of Cristiano Ronaldo’s twins. The boy and girl were born to a surrogate mum. It’s a secret that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t yet revealed to the rest of the world.”
In March, The Sun claimed that Ronaldo was to become the father of two twin boys, born to a surrogate mother on the west coast of the United States.
Ronaldo is already a father to one son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, who is now six years old. The announcement of the child’s birth in July 2010 was made via Ronaldo’s official social media channels and took the world by surprise.
The 32-year-old, who inspired Madrid to Champions League glory in Cardiff last weekend, is currently dating Georgina Rodriguez, a Spanish model.
Ronaldo’s representatives have been approached for comment.
