CRISTIANO RONALDO will soon be hearing the pitter-patter of baby feet once again after his sister broke the news of her pregnancy.
His older sibling Katia Aveiro announced she is to welcome her third child into the world at the age of 41 to her 911,000 Instagram followers.
Aveiro already has two sons, Rodrigo, aged 18, and Dinis Maria, aged eight, to her ex-husband Jose Pereira.
And she has spoken of her delight on social media as she commented on her pregnancy with partner Alexandre Bertolucci Jr.
She said: “I do not remember my life without being a mother.
“I feel an agonising fear of my future, fear of being unhealthy, fear of nausea, mood swings from the routines exchanged, nights barely sleeping, constant vomiting mixed with tears.”
While also adding: “But the reward is magnificent, it’s unique, it’s wonderful, it’s a blessing!!!
“Learning once more to take care of me, because I need to take care of another mini heart of someone who hits hard inside of me.
“Your family is crazy to see you, your grandmother has bought even clothes not knowing if you like blue or pink, your brothers crazy to kiss you.
“Your crazy father to teach you and love and I anxious to take care of you, protect you so that you can then offer yourself wings and let yourself fly to be.”
