Cristiano Ronaldo takes break from soccer to enjoy time with his new baby girl

Cristiano Ronaldo is officially a dad-of-four! The Real Madrid player and Georgina Rodriguez welcomed their first child together on Sunday, November 12. The Spanish model gave birth to a baby girl, whom they’ve named Alana Martina. The proud dad took to Instagram to announce the arrival of his fourth child. 

Cristiano shared a photo from a hospital room inside of Madrid's Hospital Universitario Quironsalud of himself, his seven-year-old son Cristiano Jr., Georgina and their newborn daughter. Alongside the picture, the 32-year-old penned in Portuguese, “Alana Martina has just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy! ❤️.”

The pair’s little girl was born via a C-section. Cristiano's coach, Fernando Santos, has given Cristiano time off to enjoy his first few days with his newborn. Ahead of the planned birth, the soccer player did not play against Saudi Arabia on November 10. Cristiano will also not play against the USA on November 14.

Cristiano’s absence was confirmed earlier this month, with Coach Santos coyly saying: "There are absences for different reasons. Some are my choice, others are because of injuries. We will take this opportunity to analyze players during practice and the games. I'm responsible for evaluating these players so I can make the best possible choice for the 23 who will make it to the World Cup." However Georgina’s partner is due to represent Real Madrid on Saturday, November 18, and will still take part in training sessions this week, balancing his day job with his semi-paternity leave.

The soccer star confirmed in July that he was expecting his fourth child. Cristiano is also a father to Cristiano Jr. and twins Mateo and Eva, who were born earlier this year via a surrogate. Georgina, who met the athlete in 2016 at a Dolce & Gabbana party, debuted her baby bump in HOLA! magazine. The then-expectant model opened up about her love for family. "I love children, nature and animals,” she shared. "I have a cat, who's now three, who is my best friend. I love surrounding myself with people who inspire me to be a better person every day, and who bring good energy."

Cristiano has previously confessed that he wants more children. The doting father admitted to a Chinese TV outlet that his son Cristiano Jr. would like six siblings,  which would fit perfectly with the star's number seven soccer jersey and his CR7 fashion brand. The Portuguese paper Correio da Manha quoted Cristiano as saying: "Cristianinho is very happy. He's doing well and says he wants more brothers and sisters. He wants seven, the magic number, and I think that's good."
