Cristiano Ronaldo and son welcome 'new member' to the family!

Cristiano Ronaldo is adding to his family.

The Portuguese footballer has shared a photo with his mini-me son Cristiano Jr and the "newest member" of their family – an adorable pug!

The father-son duo posed for a selfie, grinning from ear-to-ear while a topless Cristiano held the little dog to his chest. "New member," he captioned the snap.

Cristiano often shares photos of his six-year-old son. He has never revealed the identity of the boy's mother and it's not known whether they still have a relationship, but what is clear is that Cristiano shares an extremely close bond with his son.

Their sweet family moments include nap time, ice cream outings and Cristiano helping the youngster with his homework. The pair spent the summer in Ibiza where they were joined by Cristiano's mum Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro.

Earlier this year Maria had to deny rumours that her son was about to become a father for a second time. Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhãque claimed that Cristiano was planning to have a second child through a surrogate mother in the US.

Cristiano also celebrated a goal by placing a football under his shirt, a gesture which is commonly used among players who are expecting a baby.

However his mum Dolores rubbished the claims, saying: "No, it's a lie." She was speaking at the launch of her autobiography Madre Coraje, which tells of her difficult past.

"It was a little complex because Ronaldo is known throughout the world and he wasn't that pleased that everyone would know his mother's story," said Dolores.

Of his plans to add to his brood, Cristiano has previously told FHM: "Five or six children? Why not? I have the necessary means and want them. I just need to find the right woman."
