Cristiano Ronaldo announced the birth of twin boys via his Facebook page.
The announcement came after Portugal’s loss to Chile at the Confederations Cup in Russia on Wednesday, confirming earlier reports from Portuguese outlets.
“I was in the service of the national team … even though my two sons were born,” Ronaldo wrote in Portuguese.
He added that he was headed to be with his “children for the first time” and will miss the third-place game. Sunday’s game in Moscow will be against either Germany or Mexico.
Ronaldo says he “will not forget” the understanding shown by Portugal team management.
The Portuguese news media has reported that Ronaldo used a surrogate from the U.S., according to the BBC. Ronaldo also has a 7-year-old son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.
The Portuguese football federation said Ronaldo had informed the organization before the announcement that the twins had been born, according to the BBC.
