Portugal’s exit from the 2017 Confederations Cup turned out a good news for star player Cristiano Ronaldo, who just welcomed his adorable newborn twins in the US. He boarded the next flight to celebrate.
The Real Madrid player is now a proud father-of-three.
He shared a picture of himself holding the bundles of joy in his arms, and it’s amazingly cute.

“So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday after leaving the tournament.
Reports confirm he left Russia immediately after the game to see his children who were born through a surrogate mom.
FPF president Fernando Gomes and Portugal’s head coach Fernando Santos admitted they granted Ronaldo permission to leave “so that he can finally get to know his children.”
Portugal lost 3-0 in their semi-final match against Chile through penalty shootouts.
The famous player will not feature for his country’s third-place match, having been given permission to miss Sunday’s play-off in Moscow.
Portuguese press confirmed his twins are named Mateo and Eva.
Their mother who lives on the west coast of the United States, was paid a whooping $228,610 for the job.
“The President of the Portuguese Football Federation and the national coach have an attitude that has touched me and I will not forget,” Ronaldo wrote on his official Facebook page.
“I’m very happy to finally be with my children for the first time.”
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner had a good time in Russia but fought hard to break even with Chilean defenders in the match.
He won Man-of-the-Match awards in each of their three Confed Cup games played in the group stage.
Georgina Rodriguez, the 22-year-old Spanish girl who’s dating CR7, is also rumored to be pregnant.
It’s an amazing year ahead for the Madrid star who made history with the Spanish giants in their La Liga and UEFA Champions League double.
