Christiano Ronaldo\’s new child

This little bit of celebrity gossip intrigues:

Cristiano Ronaldo just announced that he’s the proud father of a son!

The 25-year-old Portuguese soccer star shared via Facebook and Twitter: “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.”

That sounds rather like a surrogacy arrangement, doesn\’t it? Rather like the one that Ricky Martin set up?

I wonder why?

*Yes, obviously, his sexuality is his and not important. But important and interesting are not the same thing.

  1. Ronaldo is often in the papers amidst rumours of bedding various female celebrities, although they could just be pr diversions.

  2. I think Gareth is right. Would you gamble half your wealth and future family on the whims of a Russian top model – like his current girlfriend? Not a chance!

    Men will increasingly resort to “wombs for rent” to satisfy their desire for children, as long as marriage (or even informal union) will keep being such a shitty deal for men, who risk losing their children and wealth whenever a woman decides she’s “had enough”.
