Ronaldo undergoing paternity test

sports Updated: Dec 07, 2010 23:48 IST

Star Brazilian footballer Ronaldo said on his Twitter feed that he is undergoing a DNA test to determine whether he is the father of a five-year-old boy living in Singapore.

"Life is full of suprises. Today I got to know Alex, a beautiful, polite and healthy boy," the 34-year-old player wrote yesterday. "Now we are waiting for the results of the test and will take on the responsibilities and pleasures that the results give us," he said.

The mother of Alex, Michele Umezu, has been trying since 2009 to have Ronaldo recognized as the father and is demanding child support. She says she met Ronaldo in a party in Tokyo in 2002 celebrating Brazil's championship in the World Cup that year.
