International soccer star and sex symbol Christiano Rinaldo announced yesterday via Facebook that he is the proud father of a baby boy born to an American surrogate mother who has chosen to remain anonymous. He wrote:
“It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.
“No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.”
The Portugal team captain is currently dating Russian model Irina Shayk, who reacted on her Facebook page: “My boyfriend is now father of a boy.”

No wedding date has been set for the genetically gifted couple.
Rihanna rocks the cover of the July Elle Magazine and talks about everything from her latest album to her relationships with ex Chris Brown and her newest boyfriend LA Dodger Matt Kemp:
On the album art for Rated R: “I wanted pictures that represented strength and fearlessness but still femininity—a strong woman who can be vulnerable. Every woman is made up of vulnerability and strength; no matter what race you are, no matter what you’ve been through in your life. Every woman has that strength that is undeniable, but we also have really big hearts. It’s just us.”
On her new beau: “I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
On turning her dream of popstardom into reality: “If I were in Barbados still, I would be dreaming about this. I asked for it, and I love it, so why am I complaining? My first day on tour, I remember saying ‘I’m so tired—this is so much.’ Then I thought, What the fuck? You asked for this—you prayed to God to tour like Madonna.”
On designers she admires: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”
On the past year: “A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
After only a few months, it appears that Brandy and FloRida have ended their rumored relationship. Pictures began to surface back in February when the rapper accompanied the songstress to her birthday party in Florida and were later addressed by Brandy as a guest blogger on Vibe.com
“I’ve seen the photos of me and Flo Rida…I don’t want to say that we’re a couple. I can definitely say that he’s somebody in my life, and I’m definitely interested but I’m not serious with anybody. I’m a little bit afraid to give my heart away right now. It’s very scary.”
All seemed quiet on the romantic front until this weekend when Brandy broke the news that she had decided to focus on her family and career instead of her love life:
“I don’t have a rapper boyfriend named Flo Rida. I am very much about myself. I have to focus on what I need to do.”
Brandy was previously linked to producer Robert Smith and was once engaged to basketball player Quentin Richardson. Her album Human is in stores now.
