Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez have finally revealed the name of their baby girl with fans after welcoming her three weeks ago.

The couple recently shared that their daughter had given them 'strength' following the devastating loss of her twin brother during the birth.

Posting a photo of the beautiful baby girl to Instagram, Georgina Rodriguez shared that they had named her Bella Esmeralda.

Dressed in a knitted pink hat and a designer Moschino babygrow, baby Bella Esmeralda gave a gorgeous smile from her cot. The photo has already received more than five million likes.

Georgina captioned the photo with her daughter's name, accompanied by a green heart emoji and her birth date – '180422'.

When translated, the name Bella Esmeralda means 'beautiful emerald' – perhaps explaining the green emoji choice.

While Bella translates to 'beautiful' in a number of languages, including Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Greek, in Spanish, Esmeralda translates directly to 'emerald'.

The name reveal comes just one week after Bella's dad Cristiano shared an adorable photo of him holding her to his Instagram.

He shared a black and white image of himself topless and holding his newborn daughter. He captioned it: "forever love..." with a heart and prayer hands emojis.

The Manchester United player announced the devastating news on 18 April that Bella's twin had tragically passed away during the birth.

A statement from the family read: "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel.

"Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time. Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you."
