Expanding their family! Cristiano RonaldoAnd Georgina Rodríguez have gushed over their newest family member after their daughter Bella’s birth in April 2022.
The couple, who have been together since 2016, welcomed their daughter Alana in 2017. The athlete is also a father of Cristiano Jr. (born 2010) and twins Eva (born 2017).
Ronaldo has previously spoken out about the lessons he’d learned from expanding his family. “Fatherhood has taught me things of love that I never knew existed,” he told Hola! magazine in November 2017. “It has given me a new perspective on what really matters in life. My greatest privilege is seeing my family grow. I enjoy every second.”
In October 2021, Ronaldo and Rodríguez confirmed that they were growing their brood, writing via Instagram, “Delighted to announce we are expecting twins. Our hearts are full of love — we can’t wait to meet you. #blessed.”
The model and the soccer player announced that one of their twins was killed during labor. “It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away,” they wrote in a joint Instagram statement in April 2022. “It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel. Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.”
The note concluded: “We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all deeply saddened by this loss and ask for your privacy during this difficult time. You are our angel, baby boy. We will always love you.”
That same month, the pair documented their daughter’s arrival home from the hospital. “Home sweet home. Gio and our baby girl are finally together with us,” the Portugal native wrote via Instagram. “We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and gestures. We are grateful for your support and appreciate the love and respect you show our family. Now it’s time to be grateful for the life that we’ve just welcomed into this world.”
Rodríguez also revealed her baby’s name alongside adorable photos. “Bella Esmeralda 💚,” she wrote in May 2022. The Instagram post included several glimpses at their daughter’s first few days. The I Am Georgina star added Bella’s birthday April 18, 2022, to the message.
