Brazilian striker Ronaldo confirmed on Thursday he is to be a father for the
third time, at the start of 2010.
The two-time World Cup winner, who has recently resurrected his
injury-plagued career with Sao Paulo side Corinthians, told TV Globo
television his partner is expecting a boy which they, according to reports
elsewhere, plan to name Romeo.
The 32-year-old Ronaldo, who made his name with club sides Barcelona, Inter
Milan, Real Madrid and AC Milan, already has a boy and a girl.
Ronald, 9, was born during Ronaldo’s four-year marriage to female Brazilian
footballer Milene Domingues.
His current partner, Maria Beatriz Antony, gave birth to their daughter
Maria Sofia on Dec 24, 2008.
