Nereida Gallardo: Cristiano Ronaldo's baby's mum is a British student
The mother of Cristiano Ronaldo's baby son is a British student, according to his ex-girlfriend.
The teen was hoping the model could put her in touch with Cristiano, 25, she explains.
'She told me she is a student from London,' Nereida, 25, said on Spanish TV. 'She is now living in the United States.
'I cannot say 100% what she told me is
true, but she did contact me several months before it became public
knowledge that Cristiano was a dad.'
Cristiano - who is dating model Irina Shayk, 24 - announced on his Facebook account on 3 July that he had fathered a son with an unnamed woman.
He plans to bring up his love child - who's been named after him - with the help of his mum Dolores.
Nereida - who dated Cristiano for 8 months in 2008 - also alleges the girl told her she signed a confidentiality agreement to never reveal she is the baby's mum.
Cristiano's spokesperson declined to comment on the claims.
