Every day is a family affair for Cristiano Ronaldo these days.
The Real Madrid superstar (32) is expecting his first child with girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez (his fourth child and third this year) and the couple put on a display of unity with their modern family at The Best FIFA Football Awards in London on Monday night. Despite the fact that they’ve been dating for one year, red carpet dates are rare for them and the pair are instead often pictured soaking up the sun on holidays or out and about in Madrid.
But it’s fitting that they chose the awards last night after making their public debut as a couple there last year. Georgina (22) is believed to be around eight months pregnant and like he did with his two older children, the footballer doesn’t look to be confirming anything before they arrive safe and sound. Ronaldo confirmed in June that he welcomed twins and it was revealed that his girlfriend is expecting around the same time.
Little Cristiano Jr (seven) joined his father and his other half at the sports awards ceremony, looking dapper in a tuxedo and is a regular fixture on his proud father’s social media channels. Cristiano opted for a patterned black suit, while expectant mum Georgina added her own twist to traditional maternity style in a plunging dove grey wrap dress with draping detail, most notably sporting a diamond band on her ring finger.

One thing is clear – the father-of-three takes parenthood in his stride and he said last year that his son’s happiness (before he welcomed twins) is his primary concern and always encourages him to “be yourself and be polite”.
“There are people who sometimes say to him that “there is another player who is better than your father”, but he knows how to deal with that,” he told ON TV.

“He is a smart boy, like me. I often tell him ‘be yourself and be polite’. I know that he will go through periods of adversity as there are jealous people out there, but I see him as a happy child.”
