Christmas came early for Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez last week when they revealed they were expecting a boy and a girl with a sweet gender reveal.
And the Manchester United ace, 36, showed that it’s always family first on Christmas Eve as he shared a buoyant snap of his nearest and dearest smiling for the camera.
His brood – Cristiano Jr., 11, twins Eva and Mateo, four, and Alana, also four – wore matching red pyjamas along with him and five-month pregnant Georgina.
‘Feliz Natal!’: Cristiano Ronaldo rung in the Christmas period with a family photo on Friday
Meanwhile the remainder of the family, positioned at the top of a highly-adorned staircase, beamed for the photo, throwing their arms up in jubilation.
The Portuguese pro footballer captioned the post: ‘De coração cheio, desejo a todos um Feliz Natal! [sic]❤️ #blessed’, which translates to ‘From my heart, I wish you all a Happy Christmas! [sic] ❤️’.
Last week, Cristiano and Georgina shared with fans that they are expecting a boy and a girl with a sweet gender reveal.
Here we go: The couple encouraged their four children to pop balloons, which filled the room with pink and blue confetti
The couple will welcome twins next year and made their announcement on social media with a heart-warming video.
They encouraged their four children to pop balloons, which filled the room with pink and blue confetti.
The two boys shouted: ‘It’s a boy’ and the two girls: ‘It’s a girl’ after Georgina gave a 1-2-3 countdown and then cheered and laughed as they revealed the sexes of the unborn children.
Cute: The video featured their three-year-old daughter Alana Martina and the footballer’s daughter Eva, also three, in pink pajamas to go with the pink confetti
Matching: Eva’s twin Matteo and Cristiano’s eldest son Cristiano Jr, nicknamed Cristianinho, were in darker outfits to match the blue confetti that appeared
Cristiano wrote along the footage which the couple posted at exactly the same time: ‘Where life begins and love never ends’ followed by heart emojis.
The video featured their three-year-old daughter Alana Martina and the footballer’s daughter Eva, also three, in pink pyjamas to go with the pink confetti in the balloon they burst.
Eva’s twin Matteo and Cristiano’s eldest son Cristiano Jr, nicknamed Cristianinho, were in darker outfits to match the blue confetti that appeared when they burst theirs.
Georgina exclaimed: ‘Ole! How lovely!’ as she struggled to contain her emotions while the four kids played after revealing the exciting news.
And to make the video complete the pretty brunette had put the two girls by presents in pink wrapping paper beside the family Christmas tree at their Cheshire home.
It was not immediately clear if Cristiano and his partner had pre-recorded the video before Georgina left with the four kids last week for a luxury Lapland trip to see Santa, or whether the pretty brunette and the children made it after returning to the UK.
