Ronaldo expecting TWINS with Georgina Rodriguez, Pogba free transfer LATEST, van de Beek EXCLUSIVE

DOTING DOLORES SENDS BABY MESSAGE TO RON

CRISTIANO RONALDO’s doting mum was one of the first to congratulate him on his baby news today, writes GERARD COUZENS.

Minutes after the Manchester United striker announced to the world his partner Georgina Rodriguez was pregnant with twins, Dolores Aveiro wrote on his Instagram: “Let my grandchildren be born healthy. That’s what matters the most.”

The 66-year-old, who suffered a life-threatening stroke last year, posted the twins’ ultrasounds on an Instagram Story around the same time along with an applause emoji.

The footballer’s two sisters have yet to react on social media, although Katia Aveiro showed earlier in the day her two children are big fans by posting footage of them playing football with their uncle’s number seven Man United shirt on.

Georgina’s elder sister Ivana, who confirmed in July she was expecting her first child with her painter and sculptor partner Carlos Garcia, also congratulated the footballer and his partner by writing on Cristiano’s and her sibling’s Instagrams in Spanish: “Congratulations, family.”

Ivana, daughter of an Argentine former footballer and a Spanish mum thought to live in Catalonia, revealed her own happy news to the world with an Instagram post filmed at a beach in the northern Spanish town of Gijon where they live and she had written the words ‘Baby is coming’ using pebbles and the sand.

She told partner Carlos Garcia in a message along the homemade footage ‘I love you’ describing the news as a miracle and the surprise of her life.

She went on to post a selfie at the same beach with the father of the unborn child on the same beach, writing ‘Miracle of life. We are waiting for you little one’ in Spanish before adding in English: “We are waiting…our little angel.”
