London: Cristiano Ronaldo`s girlfriend seems unfazed by the stir created by the news of the Portuguese footballer becoming a father, as the couple was spotted enjoying a night out together.

Model Irina Shayk looked stony-faced and glared at the cameras as she met up with the Real Madrid star for a night out, reports

Reports suggested that she knew nothing of the birth and had been left in tears by her boyfriend`s announcement.

However, her spokesperson later denied she had said anything of the sort, and said: "They`re trying to create a relationship."

After Ronaldo, 25, made the announcement on his website over the weekend, it was claimed the baby was born as a result of a fling, and the woman had been paid to stay anonymous.

But Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias has now claimed the baby was conceived with a surrogate mother at the end of last summer in San Diego, where the Real Madrid star was on holiday.

A spokesman for Ronaldo`s management company Gestifute confirmed he had become a father but refused to comment on the surrogacy claims.
