Cristiano Ronaldo has celebrated the birth of his first child with girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez in Madrid.
The Real Madrid forward confirmed the news, via Instagram, on Sunday evening, posting a family photo from the Hospital Quiron Universal.
"Alana Martina is just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy!" he wrote alongside the picture.
Alana is Ronaldo's fourth child, and joins a family that recently welcomed twins Eva Maria and Mateo from a surrogate mother in the United States.
The 32-year-old's oldest son was born in 2010, but the mother has never been publicly identified.
Rodriguez was due to give birth around November 21, but was admitted to hospital earlier than expected.
Reports in Spain claimed that the date was brought forward because Ronaldo had time off from Portugal's international break fixtures.
“Being a father is a unique and personal journey, something that has changed me completely," he told Hello magazine last week, quoted by the Mirror.
“It’s taught me things about love that I never knew existed. It has softened me and given me a different perspective on what is really important in my life.
“I can’t wait to be a dad again. Being a father and seeing my family grow is without doubt the greatest privilege I’ve had.
“Spending time with them, being by their side, smiling and laughing with them. They’ve brought a lot of happiness and joy to my life.”
