Real Madrid hottie Cristiano Ronaldo has announced via Facebook that he is proud papa to a newborn baby boy and will raise his son on his own.
The soccer, Armani model, and new dad is reportedly dating Russian model Irina Shayk -- but she's not the baby's mama.
So, who is?
Her identity is confidential for now -- all we know about her is that she's supposedly American.
Renaldo wrote on his Facebook wall:
It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby's mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship. No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.
The baby, who has dark hair and eyes -- like father, like son! -- was born June 17. Renaldo rushed to be with him after his team (Portugal) got knocked out of the World Cup after losing to Spain on June 29. The name of the baby is unknown.
Congrats to Cristiano!
