Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken about fatherhood for the first time.

And his comments may surprise those who regard him as just another pampered millionaire sportsman.

The 25-year-old says that being a dad has made him more responsible and that he's not afraid to lend a hand with the less favourable aspects of parenting.

"Of course I change the nappies," he told Spanish sports paper Marca. "It's not the thing I like best in the world, but I do it."

Of his new role as a father, he adds: "Of course something like this affects you. It's a different type of responsibility."
