The Real Madrid footballer and his 22-year-old girlfriend have welcomed their first baby, after Georgina Rodriguez gave birth near his home.

The Real Madrid superstar has welcomed a baby girl into the world, named Alana Martina.

Cristiano announced the happy news on his Instagram page, sharing a photo of himself with Georgina in hospital.

The baby is Ronaldo's fourth child.

Alana now joins Cristiano Ronaldo jr. and twins Mateo and Eva as part of Ronaldo's family. The star's fans rushed to congratulate the star, with one writing: "Congratulations king!"

"I still love football a lot and try to play it sometimes too but above all, I most enjoy watching on TV", the McLaren-Honda driver said.

Ronaldo made his relationship with Rodriguez public a year ago, and she announced her pregnancy weeks after the twins were born.

"It has softened me and given me a different perspective on what is really important in my life". Being a father and seeing my family grow is without doubt the greatest privilege I've had.

As with his first-born, Ronaldo is happy to show off his twin children and they regularly feature on both his Instagram and that of his girlfriend Georgina.
