Cristiano has sparked baby rumours

The football legend, who is already a dad to five-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, played for his team Real Madrid CF, beating Celta Vigo on 5 March. However, the 7-1 victory for Cristiano's team wasn't the only talking point of the dramatic game.

The father-of-one had everyone speculating when he put a football under his shirt after scoring a goal, hinting at his past comments of wanting to add to his family.

"Five or six children? Why not? I have the necessary means and want them," he said during an interview with FHM magazine. "I just need to find the right woman."

The athlete split from Russian model Irina Shayk last year and has not been romantically linked to anyone since.

In November, he spoke candidly about how the experience of becoming father to Cristiano Jr changed his life for the better.

"It's been incredible. I never imagined that my life would change so much," the star footballer told Spanish news agency EFE. "It was always my dream to have a child young, when I was 25. He's changed the way I think, he's always with me, supporting me."

The star, who tends to keep his private life under wraps, has never revealed the name of his child's mother and has full custody, looking after him with help from his mother Dolores.
