GEORGINA Rodriguez is counting down the days to becoming an aunt after her older sister announced she was pregnant with a ‘baby’ message written on a Spanish beach.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s glamourous model girlfriend has been the subject of frenzied speculation over the past year that she is expecting the couple’s second child.
But Georgina’s big sister Ivana has now confirmed she has beaten her to it by confirming she is expecting her first child with her painter and sculptor partner Carlos Garcia.
The loved-up pair, who have been looking after Cristiano’s cat Pepe since it was run over in Milan, live in the stunning city of Gijon in northern Spain.
Ivana, daughter of an Argentinian former footballer and a Spanish mum thought to live in Catalonia, revealed her happy news to the world.
The announcement was shared via an Instagram post filmed at a Gijon beach where she had written the words ‘Baby is coming’ using pebbles and the sand.
She told her partner Carlos ‘I love you' in a message along with the homemade footage describing the news as a miracle and the surprise of her life.
She went on to post a selfie at the same beach with the father of the unborn child, writing: “Miracle of life.

"We are waiting for you little one” in Spanish before adding in English: “We are waiting…our little angel.”
Over the past week, the 31-year-old has been showing how she is keeping in shape with mountain walks.
She has also posted new footage of herself and her partner touching her belly for signs of the unborn child’s movements, gushing: “Mummy and daddy’s baby, giving its first little kicks.
“It’s a dream having you and feeling you inside me.”
Carlos responded by describing Ivana as the “best mum in the world.”
Former shop assistant Georgina, 27, will spend most of the year thousands of miles away from her elder sibling if as expected she moves to Manchester with former Juventus striker Cristiano.
But their four children made up Cristiano’s trio who are thought to have been born to surrogate mums, and their own daughter Alana Martina who will turn four in November – will have a new relative to dote on them whenever they return to Spain or Ivana flies to the UK to visit them.
It was not immediately clear when Ivana is due to give birth and whether she knows yet if the baby will be a boy or a girl.
Family man Cristiano, who signed for Manchester United in a shock move after turning down an offer from rivals Manchester City, has been spending time with his nephew and niece ahead of his much-anticipated return to Old Trafford.
Ivana took charge of Cristiano’s beloved pet cat earlier this year after it was run over and seriously injured outside the star couple's Italian home.
The £2,600 hairless Sphynx moggy is believed to have been flown by private jet to the football star’s home in Madrid before it was driven back to northern Spain.
Ivana posted an Instagram picture of her with Pepe in March in Gijon, showing her with the pet in the back of a car in an animal outfit matching her lime green top.
Georgina was quoted at the time in an interview as saying: “It was close to death and after a month and a half in intensive care at the vet’s, we’ve decided my sister Ivana should look after it.
“Pepe’s now in Spain recovering.”
In July Ivana was said to have quickly deleted an edited photo that appeared to hint Georgina may add to her family.
Spanish media reported at the time that Georgina’s older sister had teased her sister was expecting again by publishing a now-deleted picture of her sibling on Instagram in a white jacket suit with a heart emoji over her belly.
Carlos Garcia is the man Cristiano Ronaldo turned to create a sculpture of him that replaced an infamous bronze statue at Madeira’s Funchal Airport by local artist Emanuel Santos.
The earlier work of art was mocked around the world after it was unveiled in March 2017, with critics accusing Santos of drinking too much Madeiran wine before making the bust.
Others likened it to former Irish international Niall Quinn.
Carlos, who has been described by Spanish media as part of Cristiano’s close circle, is understood to have been introduced to Ivana by the striker.
They started dating in 2018 and are recently believed to have got engaged.
