Real Madrid football star Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about his new role as a dad for the first time and has revealed that he gets stuck in with the nappy changing!

Admitting that being a new dad is a life changing experience, 25-year-old Ronaldo told Spanish sports channel, Marca, “ Of course something like this affects you. It’s a different type of responsibility.”

When it comes to hands-on parenting, Ronaldo obliges. “Of course I change the nappies. It’s not the thing I like best in the world but I do it,” he admits.

The world’s best paid footballer also revealed that he’d like his son, also called Cristiano Ronaldo, to step into his (football) shoes when he gets older. “I would love him to like football, for him to be my successor, but we’ll see what happens.”

Ronaldo changing dirty nappies? Now that’s a scene we’d love to see!
