Cristiano's statement continued, "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." Well, sure. But that won't stop us from speculating. Cristiano spent some time in L.A. last year, which could be when his mini-me was conceived. And though he's been linked with Paris and Kim, among a number of other ladies, in between breaking up with Nereida Gallardo via text message and hooking up with Irina this year, we probably would have noticed if either of them had popped out a sprog last week.
Some sources are speculating that he used a surrogate, rather than this being an unplanned pregnancy, but that's kind of weird, because why would he plan for a baby to be born during the biggest tournament of his professional life? And come on. He's Cristiano Ronaldo. For every woman who's turned off by his love of baby oil, waxing, and tighty-whities, there are a dozen who'd happily incubate his spawn. Whatever the real story is, we know that at least when Cristiano Jr. falls on the ground crying, it's because he's a baby and not because he wants the ref to give him a penalty kick because that mean man from Germany breathed on him.
