Cristiana Ronaldo has posted the most adorable picture for his first Christmas with his new family.
The 32-year-old experienced a hat-trick when he welcomed three children to his family in 2017; the Real Madrid footballer, already dad to seven-year-old son Cristiano Jr by an unknown mother, had daughter Alana Martina last month with girlfriend Georgina, 22.
Georgina was believed to be pregnant at the same time as the unidentified surrogate mother carrying his twins, daughter Eva Maria and son Mateo.
Alana Martina nació el 12-11-17 Ser madre y criar todo este tiempo de los pequeños de la casa me ha hecho experimentar una felicidad suprema, y ahora con la llegada de Alana Martina ya estamos todos al completo, más felices si cabe. Quiero agradecer al personal sanitario la atención impecable que nos ha brindado antes, durante y tras el parto. Asimismo, a nuestros familiares, amigos y conocidos por las llamadas, mensajes, visitas, detalles que han tenido estos días con nosotros y por el seguimiento del embarazo y el parto. Y, por último y no por ello menos importante, a todos los seguidores que nos apoyan y nos mandan sus mejores deseos y buenas energías en forma de mensaje. Estamos muy felices y agradecidos con Dios por la salud de nuestra pequeña Alana Martina y por supuesto la de nuestros otros 3 pequeños de la casa, a quienes estoy deseando abrazar y comérmelos a besos. Es precioso ver a mi madre cómo calma a Alana Martina en su pecho. No cambio esta sensación por nada. Amo a mis padres, amo a mi familia. ¡Gracias a todos!

Welp! That’s a lot of children for just one year but the pair look like the couldn’t be any happier with their new additions.
Georgina took to Instagram to share the picture; the caption, when translated from Portuguese to English, read: ‘Create love with you and make life with you.’
The footballer’s girlfriend gave birth to her first baby and Cristiano’s fourth, prematurely on 12 November, after Cristiano became a father via surrogate to twins back in June,
Speaking to Hello!, Rodriguez said that the arrival of Alana had ‘definitely’ brought the couple closer, adding: ‘We’re happier together than ever.’
‘The children are our joy,’ she said. ‘We wake up and the first thing we do is hug and kiss them, put them in their little chairs and watch them while they have their breakfast, make sure they have everything they need, and so on all day long.
‘This is a very special time for us all.”
‘I’m very proud of him,’ she said of Cristiano. ‘When we got home from hospital, he’d organised a surprise dinner, with all our nearest and dearest. I felt like the luckiest woman in the world.

Big Brother will return next year on ITV2 and online
Big Brother, one of the original UK reality TV shows, will return to screens in 2023, years after being axed by both Channel 4 and later Channel 5.
The show, which launched careers of ITV presenter Alison Hammond and Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts, will be revived by ITV2 and new streaming platform ITVX.
A promotional video aired during the Love Island series finale on Monday evening.
Officials said the famous house will return with a “contemporary new look”.
The returning programme – which was originally on for 18 years – will see a cast of “carefully selected housemates from all walks of life” live together under strict surveillance for up to six weeks.
Similar to previous editions, the public will regularly vote contestants off in live evictions, as well as deciding on an overall cash prize winner.
“We’re beyond excited to bring this iconic series to ITV2 and ITVX where it should especially engage with our younger viewers.”
The series, which takes its name from the all-seeing ruler in George Orwell’s novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, first appeared on Channel 4 in 2000, and was won by Liverpudlian builder Craig Phillips.
It was influential, both as a public social experiment and also in creating a new form of celebrity, with normal people prepared to have their every waking (and sleeping) moment caught on camera and broadcast to the world.
Celebrity editions aired, featuring the likes of Katie Price, Gemma Collins and Mark Owen.
Despite its early success and influence, the National TV Award-winning programme soon found itself embroiled in controversy over reports of bullying, racism, fixing, and general toxic behaviour in the house, with complaints being made to both the police and Ofcom.
The show moved to Channel 5 in 2011 but was axed in 2018 amid a ratings slump. Channel 5 controller Ben Frow later said he had no regrets over the decision and that the media landscape had become “very crowded with reality shows”.
‘Jumping the shark’
Speaking on the BBC Sounds Podcast, Unreal: A Critical History of Reality TV, this summer, Big Brother’s creative director Philip Edgar-Jones said audiences “very clearly hated it” when producers intervened in the programme too much.
“We call it ‘jumping the shark’ in television, when you the hand of the producer is too overt and you feel like the show has therefore lost that sense of authenticity – that’s when the audience gets more angry.
“Being authentic to the show, you create this world with its own internal logic, and you can’t break that internal logic, otherwise you break the magic and you lose the trust of the audience.”
At the time, Big Brother producers said they were open to “future possibilities”, apparently leaving the door open for a return one day.
Irish singing duo Jedward, the identical twin brothers who twice appeared on the celebrity version of the show, have made an early bid online to host the returning series.

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.
Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.
Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.
"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.
"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.
"He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."
Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.
