Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend has continued to show support for her partner amid allegations from a U.S. woman that the footballer raped her in 2009, by posting a video of their family on social media.
Georgina Rodriguez uploaded the video clip to her Instagram story, showing her with their children in a swimming pool, captioned: ‘Spa time… Our daughters… our life @cristiano we love you’.
The Spanish model, 23, can be seen playing with her biological daughter – 11-month-old Alana Martina – as well as one-year-old twins Eva Maria and Mateo, whose birth mother is unknown.
The 33-year-old Portuguese footballer also has an eight-year-old son, Cristiano Jr. whose mother identity has also been kept secret.

Ronaldo has been accused of raping model Kathryn Mayorga, who claims she was sexually assaulted by the footballer in his Las Vegas hotel suite in the early hours of the morning of June 13, 2009.
Ms Mayorga alleges she reached a £287,000 settlement with Ronaldo in 2010 in exchange for her silence, before the original police allegation was dropped.

After Ms Mayorga asked Las Vegas police to reopen the case in August this year, the force have said they aim to question Ronaldo about her claims.
Ronaldo has described Ms Mayorga’s accusations as ‘fake news’ and described rape as an ‘abominable crime’.
Yesterday, Spanish media reported that Ronaldo claims it was his former club Real Madrid hat pressured him into signing a hush-money deal with Mayorga, in order to ensure that the case never got to court to protect its own image.

Spanish news said the Juventus star’s defense strategy would be to claim his former club Real Madrid pressured him to sign a deal with his accuser. Pictured: Ronaldo pictured playing for Real Madrid in 2012

Spanish tabloid Correio da Manha, citing sources ‘close to the case’, said: ‘One of the main arguments the star is going to use will be that he was pressured into signing the agreement to pay the American woman.
‘The footballer had just signed a lucrative contract with Real Madrid and the club was concerned about its image.
‘Their concern was heightened when, during his holidays in the US, Ronaldo was the centre of attention and was even photographed on a night out with Paris Hilton.
‘The investment made by Real Madrid was high and although they never doubted the quality of the player, the club was apprehensive about the consequences of his off-pitch behaviour.’
The paper insisted Ronaldo was opposed to the idea of signing any hush-money deal before Real Madrid got involved.
Real Madrid has not yet responded to the claims.
Ronaldo has been ruled out of Portugal’s games in November, against Poland and Italy, and his next club game for Juventus is on October 20, at home against Genoa.
