The Irina Shayk Ronaldo relationship is believed to have ended because the Russian supermodel reportedly did not get along with the footballer's mother. According to various rumours, Irina refused to attend Ronaldo's mother's surprise birthday celebrations. Meanwhile, neither party has officially commented upon the allegations associated with the break up.
While there are many rumours surrounding the relationship of Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo, perhaps the biggest controversy is about Ronaldo's oldest son, Cristiano Jr. or Cristianinho. Cristiano Jr. was born in San Diego in 2010 when Ronaldo was dating the Russian supermodel. Ronaldo answered the speculations as to who was the mother of his child while speaking to chat show host Jonathan Ross in 2017.
Ronaldo said, "People speculate I was with this girl or another, or there was a surrogate mother. I have never told anyone and never will. When Cristiano [Junior] is going to grow up, I am always going to say the truth to him because he deserves it, because he is my son, but I am not going to say because people want me to say."
Meanwhile, Ronaldo has three other children. The Portugal captain announced in June 2017 that he had fathered twins, Eva Maria and Mateo, via a surrogate mother in the United States. Ronaldo's current girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, gave birth to Ronaldo's fourth child, Alana Martina, on November 12, 2017.
