The legendary footballer became a dad in June 2010 after his son was born in the United States. Cristiano, who has full custody of the boy, has never revealed the identity of his child's mother.

While Portugal-born Cristiano is happy to share details of his family life with his fans, he has declined to comment about the demise of his relationship with model Irina Shayk.

It recently emerged that the model ended their five-year relationship after finding messages on his phone from "dozens of women", and receiving phone calls from women claiming that Cristiano had been flirting with them.

"She immediately confronted Cristiano about it, but he initially denied any knowledge," a source told The Sun. "After she explained to him what she had found he eventually admitted to messaging the girls.

"She couldn't believe it so immediately got out of the house. She ended the relationship there and then."

As previously revealed by HELLO! Online, it was Irina who broke up with Cristiano on New Year's Eve, after confronting him.

"She was in shock and completely devastated," a close friend told HELLO! Online. "It wasn't a decision she took lightly."

The friend added: "Irina always chose to stand by her man. There was no way around it as the truth was staring at her in the face. After much thought and consideration, she felt she couldn't ignore the signs."
