Cristiano Ronaldo holidays with ‘pregnant’ girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez after welcoming new twins

Cristiano Ronaldo holidays with ‘pregnant’ girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez after welcoming new twins.

The Real Madrid star and his stunning girlfriend have been pictured together in Ibiza

Cristiano Ronaldo has just welcomed twins into his life – and now he could have one more on the way.

His girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez appears to be showing off a growing baby bump as they holiday in Ibiza.

The Real Madrid star, 32, was spotted with the brunette beauty, a former Prada sales assistant, in Ibiza on Saturday.

In a series of pictures, stunning Georgina, 22, is seen holding onto her belly.

The multi-coloured bikini she’s sporting shows her belly and a striped maxi dress appears to emphasise her ‘growing bump’ too.

There have been many reports that the couple could be expecting their first child together.

A source recently told a Portuguese newspaper: “They are very happy with the arrival of the baby.

“Everyone adores Georgina and are satisfied with this relationship.”

Ronaldo already has three children, having recently expanded his family by having twins with a surrogate mum in the US.

The footballing icon confirmed he’d become a father again last month, having welcomed little girl-boy twins named Eva Maria and Mateo on June 8.

However, Ronaldo never explained how his newest arrivals had come into existence, as Georgina was not expecting.

It was rumoured that the twins were born via a surrogate, and documents unearthed by the Daily Mail appear to support the speculation.

The newspaper found the babies were conceived in a laboratory, then born to a surrogate mum – although her identity is still secret.

Their birth certificates, which have been filed publicly, only contain part of Ronaldo’s surname (‘Dos Santos’ as opposed to ‘dos Santos Aveiro’, which is Cristiano’s full last name), but in the court register their case is classed under the ‘surrogacy’ category.

While Cristiano is listed on the birth certificates as the twins’ father, their mother has been left off.

The twins were born at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in the Californian town of La Mesa, which lies just 20 miles from the Mexican border and is near San Diego. Eva was born first at 9.07am with her brother following a minute later, the newspaper reports.

Janet Jackson’s ex-husband Wissam Al Manna took their adorable son on a walk in London.

Al Manna enjoyed the nice weather by taking his boy Eissa through a park with his nanny.

The multi-millionaire looked chilled out and happy as he took his son around the capital.

And to prove that we’re not making this up, here’s a picture of him cradling their baby on a bench during some down time.

Janet and Wissam separated shortly after their son was born but are currently successfully co-parenting.

Insiders say they remain good friends are determined to stay on good terms.

The singer and her estranged ex have apparently put their baby on a ‘strict schedule’ while they work out their $200m settlement.

A family friend revealed to People magazine earlier this year: ‘They are very disciplined and the baby is already on a strict schedule.

‘Janet really trusts Wissam and he trusts her. They have a strong friendship. There is no fighting between them.’

Back in May, Janet confirmed that she and Wissam had separated.

In a Twitter video she said: ‘I just want to keep it real with you guys for a second. Yes, I separated from my husband.

‘We are in court and the rest is in God’s hands.’

Of Eissa she said: ‘I thank God for him. He’s so healthy, so beautiful, so sweet, so loving – such a happy baby.’

Madonna announces opening date for Mercy James centre

Madonna announces opening date for Mercy James centre

American pop star Madonna has announced opening date for the state of the art children’s hospital. Mercy James centre will be for pediatric surgery and intensive care.

The singer who is a foster mother to four Malawian children made the revelation on Friday. She said the facility will open its doors on 11th July, 2017.

Success of the project is owed to the star’s effort through an initiative called Raising Malawi. Madonna managed to convince others to contribute towards the project as she organised entertainment events in her native country. The proceeds went to the project.

She dedicates it to the children of Malawi, her adopted daughter Mercy James in particular, hence naming it after her. Madonna adopted Mercy in 2009.

The facility is the first and the only one of its kind in Malawi. As such it is expected to benefit Malawian children which will in turn improve their health, considering that critical surgeries will be conducted at the centre.

As a token of appreciation, the American artist recognises every hand that played a part in making the project a success.

“Thanks to everyone, doctor, company, construction foreman (the list goes on) who have dedicated time, energy and effort to making this project a success.”

Apart from adopting Malawian children, the artist’s helping hand keeps extending to other children in the country.

Madonna wears white dress covered in pooches to P Diddy’s party

Poochy cute: The 58-year-old chatted with a gal pal as she left the Beverley Hills home of Sean Combs, aka P. Diddy, who stars in the hip-hop doc and hosted the bash

Madonna had her own unique sense of style since bursting on to the scene with Like A Virgin in 1984.
And on Wednesday night Madonna was spotted in an eye-catching frock at the after party for hip-hop doc Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story at the Beverly Hills home of Sean Combs, aka P Diddy.

The 58-year-old left sexy behind and opted for a white dress with a large pattern of different breeds of dogs.
The pop icon teamed her poochy number with a black cardigan and black lace-up high heels with a cutout across the top of the foot.

Her long, blonde hair was styled to cascade over her shoulders in soft waves. And she kept her make-up low-key using neutral colors around her eyes and a soft red on her lips.
Madonna smiled happily as she and a gal pal left the celebrity party together. Her daughter Lourdes, 20, was also at the bash but left separately.

There was no sign of her rumored new beau, 32-year-old Portuguese model Kevin Sampaio.
They first met when they shared a steamy kiss in the pop star’s B**** I’m Madonna video in 2015.
But they reportedly didn’t hook up until Madonna’s recent split from her boyfriend of two years, model Aboubakar Soumahoro, 26.

She adopted four of her brood from Malawi: David Banda, 11, in 2006, Mercy James, 11, in 2009, and four-year-old twins Esther and Stella Mwale, whom she welcomed this year.
She shares biological daughter, Lourdes, with former partner Carlos Leon.
Madonna also has a son, Rocco, 16, who prefers to live with his father, her ex-husband, British director Guy Ritchie.

Madonna moves to Portugal to help her son become a football star

David Banda (pictured left) was adopted by Madonna from Malawi when he was 11-years-old

Madonna the soccer mom: In her oddest reinvention yet, pop Queen moves to Portugal to help her son become a football star (and show the world she is a good mother)
She prides herself on being the Queen of Reinvention, a style and pop icon who has morphed effortlessly over the decades from slick Material Girl, to sex goddess in a bullet-bra, to Kabbalah-chanting yogi.
At one point she even became Lady of the Manor complete with country estate and an ‘English’ accent during her ill-fated marriage to Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie. Now it seems Madonna is embarking on her most radical, and unexpected, shift to date. It’s the wholescale yet decidedly unglamorous transformation into a ‘soccer mom’ – a T-shirt-wearing symbol of suburban America, who spends her life shouting encouragement from the sidelines.

The Mail on Sunday has established that the 58-year-old singer is planning to uproot her family from their New York home and relocate 3,300 miles to Portugal so that her adopted son David Banda can play in the junior squad of the famous Portuguese club Benfica.
The Queen of Reinvention’s latest move might be to transform herself into a ‘soccer mom’ – a symbol of suburban America

It is said that Madonna has already bought a spectacular £5 million palace in the rolling hills outside Lisbon and is planning to enrol her younger children at the city’s exclusive £30,000-a-year French Lycée.

‘David recently spent a week at Benfica and his prodigious talents impressed everyone,’ a source explained last night.
‘Madonna is determined to give her kids every opportunity in life and this one is too good to pass up. She and the family will be moving to Portugal in time for the new school year in September.’

The star recently spent a two-week holiday in Lisbon, staying in the £13,000-a-night Presidential suite at the Hotel Ritz, and viewed multiple properties in the city before settling on the stunning 18th Century Quinta do Relogio Palace, a Unesco- protected property once owned by a Portuguese nobleman whose colourful life inspired Alexandre Dumas’s novel The Count Of Monte Cristo.

It seems, for the moment at least, that her singing career is on hold.

But why would Madonna, a woman better known for outrageous self-promotion than a keen appreciation of a flat back four, suddenly put her own ambitions on the back-burner?

No doubt it helped her decision to learn that Lisbon is emerging as one of Europe’s ‘hottest’ cities and is already favoured by a string of celebrities including Italian actress Monica Bellucci, fashion designer Christian Louboutin, designer Philippe Starck and former Manchester United footballer Eric Cantona.
But the real answer, says a Hollywood source who knows her well, is more emotional.

‘Madonna lost her own mother very young and her greatest ambition in life is to be the mother she never had,’ he says. ‘However much you might criticise her, she has always wanted what is best for her kids.’
Madonna has said the ‘greatest accomplishment of my life is to be the mother I never knew’

Madonna’s own mother, also called Madonna, died of breast cancer in 1963 when the star was just five years old, and the singer has spoken in the past about her heartbreak.

Just last month she shared a poignant picture of her mother with her 9.6 million Instagram fans, saying: ‘The greatest accomplishment of my life is to be the mother I never knew.’
Yet there is a more immediate motive, too, behind Madonna’s new-found interest in a normal life (or as normal as it can get for a global superstar).

She was left ‘reeling and heart-broken’ over the unseemly court battle that ensued when her 16-year-old son Rocco left New York abruptly in 2015 complaining of her ‘cloying’ ways, and saying that he wished to have a more conventional upbringing with his father Guy Ritchie and stepmother, model Jacqui Ainsley.

A bruising legal fight erupted which saw Madonna stopping midway through a tour to fly to London in an unsuccessful attempt to have Rocco return to America with her. Reports at the time claimed Rocco was ‘fed up’ with

Madonna’s strict house rules, which reportedly include following a macrobiotic diet and an insistence on daily exercise (she claims to do three hours of yoga every day).

Their rift culminated in confiscating his mobile phone when it interfered with his studies – at which point Rocco decided he would much rather be with his laid-back father.

She eventually conceded defeat and allowed Rocco to remain in London with Guy, though mother and son have since been reconciled. ‘Madonna has always been a strict mother and it’s her way or the high way,’ says the source.
‘When Rocco publicly denounced her, she was devastated. It caused a rift which has been healed but it caused Madonna to rethink her parenting techniques. It used to be tough love but now it’s just love. This latest incarnation is a devoted mum who puts her children first.

‘Rebel Madonna has long since gone. She has totally embraced the idea of being a soccer mom.’
Madonna certainly seems proud of her new identity, posting a picture of herself in a baggy black sweatshirt on Instagram with the word ‘Bitch’ written across the image. Underneath she wrote: ‘Because sometimes soccer Moms need to be a…’

Madonna has six children, including the recently adopted four-year-old twins Stella and Esther, who are also from Malawi.

Determined not to repeat her mistake and risk alienating David, she has thrown herself enthusiastically behind the boy’s burgeoning career. Her Instagram account is filled with proud postings about his footballing prowess and includes her wearing a Benfica shirt.

Last week she showed off a picture of David with his teammates from Downtown United Soccer Club, the New York under-14s team he plays for at the moment, with the proclamation: ‘D.U.S.C wins 5-4! David Banda scores the winning goal!’ An earlier post showing David in his kit is accompanied by the message: ‘My Champion!’

Eldest daughter Lourdes, 20, is not expected to make the move to Portugal and will remain in America where she is pursuing a modelling career as the face of Stella McCartney’s fragrance Pop while studying musical theatre.

But the rest of Madonna’s brood – 11-year-old daughter Mercy James, David and the newly adopted twins – are expected to move to Lisbon this summer. Madonna plans to smooth their transition by enrolling them in the French Lycée school in Lisbon (Portuguese is mandatory), a sister institution to the Lycée in Manhattan where the children study at the moment, and the London Lycée, where Lourdes was once a pupil.

The superstar viewed a number of properties in Lisbon, where the local government has made a deliberate policy of attracting wealthy incomers through a low-tax regime and a policy known as ‘visa gold’, which grants automatic residency to non-Europeans who spend more than £500,000 on property.

It’s reported she’s already bought a £5million mansion in the rolling hills above Lisbon
Fans of the city compare it to San Francisco thanks to its steep hills, quaint trams, hilltop homes with spectacular views, burgeoning restaurant scene and thriving arts culture. Property expert Gustavo Soares, of Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the companies used by Madonna, says: ‘To have Madonna looking for properties in Lisbon isn’t just a cool thing, it’s helping to drive up property prices in the city and elsewhere.’

The star is already immersing herself in Lisbon society. Last month, she met Fernando Medina, the city’s mayor, and had dinner at the Michelin-starred Solar dos Nunes restaurant with former Portuguese international footballer Nuno Gomes, who runs the Benfica training scheme which David will join.
She is even rumoured to be dating a Portuguese male model, Kevin Sampaio, 27 years her junior.

Naturally, for a woman with an estimated £500 million fortune, money is no object when it comes to choosing new digs. It is reported that last week she completed the £5 million purchase of Quinta do Relogio (Farm of the Clock Tower) in picturesque Sintra, a four-storey palace complete with private chapel and sprawling park filled with ancient oaks, a lake and grotto.

It is rich in history. Part of a world heritage site, the palace was built by the 15th Count of Redondo in the Moorish Revival style and was considered one of Portugal’s finest palaces until it fell into disrepair.
‘It needs major restoration work,’ a local estate agent said. ‘It needs someone with unlimited funds to restore it. And now it has that.’

A centuries-old cork tree guards the entrance to the palace, above which is carved the motto: ‘God Is The Only Winner.’
In 1835, it was bought by Portuguese nobleman Manuel Pinto de Fonseca, who made a fortune in the Brazilian slave trade.

It was Fonseca’s controversial life that inspired Alexandre Dumas to write a fictionalised account of a man wrongly accused of a crime, who then makes a fortune and returns home to seek revenge.

Wonderful as her new palace sounds, Hollywood sources say that Madonna still intends to keep her £30 million townhouse on New York’s Upper East Side fully staffed. But they insist that she relishes the idea of living in Europe – and, of course, being closer to Rocco in England.
The teenager was recently arrested for marijuana possession and his mother is said to have concerns about some of his friends.

As Rocco’s father Guy has put it: ‘If you live in one of the busiest cities in the world there is an endless deluge of opportunities and temptations. Everyone has to go on their own journey to navigate their way past that gauntlet.’
No wonder that, for the moment at least, Hollywood’s newest soccer mom is keeping a very close eye from the sidelines.

JANET JACKSON SPLITS FROM HUSBAND

Janet Jackson has split from her multi-millionaire husband. This comes just months after giving birth to her first child at the age of 50.

The pop-star sister of the late Michael Jackson wed Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana in 2012 and their son, Eissa, was born on January 3.

Her recent retreat from the limelight – and the postponement of her Unbreakable world tour last year involving 36 gruelling stadium shows – had been put down to contentment with her marriage.

But last night, a close friend of Ms Jackson told The Mail on Sunday. According to the source,  ‘Sadly, Janet and Wissam have decided that it wasn’t working and to go their separate ways.

‘They’re both busy people but determined to be good parents, even if they’re apart. It’s amicable and Eissa will stay with his mother, who is basing herself in London.’

Last week, a leading entertainment website claimed Al Mana had helped three-times-married Ms Jackson settle down. She traded fame for a role as a devoted mother and wife.

But yesterday that appeared to have been a somewhat premature prediction.

A divorce settlement could be complex and costly. This is because the 42-year-old Al Mana, CEO of the multinational Al Mana business conglomerate, is estimated to have a fortune of around £800million. This is at least four times Ms Jackson’s net worth.

GRAMMY: British born singer Adele scooped five awards.

Adele swept the top honors at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, but the night was shared with Beyoncé.

Adele went home with five total awards, including album of the year for “25.”

Beyoncé won two, including best music video for “Formation” and best urban contemporary album for “Lemonade.”

The two superstars each provided stellar performances.

Beyoncé, who recently announced she’s expecting twins, reminded everyone why her nickname is Queen Bey with a powerful medley of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles.” The nine-minute set was a celebration of women and motherhood.

Adele opened the show with her hit “Hello.” She later performed a slowed arrangement of George Michael’s “Fastlove” in tribute to the singer, who died on Christmas Day.

“I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him,” Adele said.

She then beautifully powered through the song. The audience responded with a standing ovation.

Adele’s evening got better when her single “Hello” won Grammy Awards for song and record of the year.

During her acceptance speech for the latter, she professed her admiration for fellow nominee, Beyoncé.

“I adore you and I want you to be my mommy,” Adele quipped.

Moments later when she won album of the year, Adele insisted Beyoncé deserved it more.

“The artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album to me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was just so monumental,” said a teary Adele to Beyoncé, who mouthed “I love you” from the audience.

David Bowie posthumously won five Grammy Awards for his final album, “Blackstar.”

Chance the Rapper won the first award of the night for best new artist.

“Glory be to God,” the Chicago native said before thanking his family and his hometown.

The rapper also won best rap album — making history as the first artist with a streaming-only album to win a Grammy.

The politically-charged climate of the country was reflected throughout the ceremony.

A Tribe Called Quest teamed up with Anderson .Paak and Busta Rhymes for a set that included criticism of President Donald Trump.

“I just want to thank President Agent Orange for perpetuating all of the evil that you’ve been perpetuating throughout the United States,” Rhymes said before launching into the song “We the People.”

James Corden had a few political lines, but the Grammy host largely kept the focus of the night on the music and his self-deprecating brand of humor.
