Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be spending the downtime from his five-match ban with his growing family.

The Real Madrid forward shared a photo of his burgeoning brood as he posed with his pregnant girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, his new twins Mateo and Eva, and his seven-year-old son Cristiano Junior.

It is the first time the 32-year-old has released a picture of his entire family together and the post has garnered more than eight million likes on Instagram since Monday.

Ronaldo captioned the post ‘Family mood’ accompanied with heart emojis.

The striker looked happy and relaxed he shared a sofa with Ms Rodriguez and they both cradled a twin each with Cristiano Junior posing behind.

Ronaldo announced the birth of his twin boy and girl, who were conceived via a surrogate mother, in June.

Earlier that month Ms Rodriguez also revealed she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. The 22-year-old has been dating the footballer since last year.

It seems Ronaldo has plans to expand his family even further after reportedly telling a Chinese television station he eventually wants to be a father of seven.

In the meantime Real star currently has plenty of time to spend with his family as he serves a five-match ban for pushing a referee in a game against Barcelona in earlier this month.
