Amidst World Cup fever, legendary football player Cristiano Ronaldo announces on Facebook that he's just become a father to a new baby boy.
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.
As of 11:58 AM, 19,793 peeps on Facebook have liked the announcement while 7,470 comments have been posted -- here are some:
Fatherhood announcements? Really, that's what Facebook's for. :)
Congratulations, Ronaldo! TP's a big fan! :)
