On the football field Cristiano Ronaldo is an icon of the sport and arguably the best player on the planet – but off it he has the responsibilities of fatherhood too.
The Real Madrid winger posed for a picture on Instagram with his baby daughter Eva, one of his four children.
The post was captioned simply with a heart emoji, as the 32-year-old looked relaxed and happy with his little girl.
Eva was born alongside twin brother Mateo in June via a surrogate mother, and is one of three children born to Ronaldo this year.
Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, also gave birth to another daughter, Alana Martina, in November, to add another member to a suddenly burgeoning Ronaldo family.
The footballer also has a seven-year-old son, Cristiano Ronaldo junior – leaving him with enough members for a five-a-side team, once his offspring are older and if they are as sport-inclined as their father.
With such a busy household, Ronaldo is probably grateful for any chance to get back to training with his Real Madrid team mates, as they aim to close the gap to La Liga leaders Barcelona.
In midweek they have a break for the Copa del Rey, with Real facing minnows Fuenlabrada on Tuesday evening.
Ronaldo may have a rest – much needed – for that game, however fellow star Gareth Bale could make his comeback from injury.
