Real Madrid soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo surprised the press when he declared on Twitter he’s a new father.

Keep reading for details on how the hot Portuguese player became a Daddy.

Following his team’s disappointing elimination from the World Cup, Ronaldo announced on his Twitter he had gone the Ricky Martin-route to parenthood:

"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."

The surrogate, an American woman who was presumably compensated to carry his son, reportedly gave birth on July 1st. Ronoldo spent the holiday weekend in New York City, his first visit to the Big Apple, according to the NY Post.
