Footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo took to social networking site, Instagram to send a message to his fans, revealing that, "Family is everything" thereby delighting his fans with a latest adorable family picture with his pregnant girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and children on Sunday.

Ronaldo who was understood to have missed Manchester United's latest draw against Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday, due to "flu-like symptoms", took the opportunity to post a picture of him along with with his family.

The 37-year-old who is widely considered to be one of the greatest footballers in the history of the sport, is known for frequently posting pictures of his family on his Instagram.

The striker was sorely missed by Ralf Rangnick's side on Saturday considering that United lacked that cutting edge on the field and also due to the fact that the Portugal icon is the club's highest goalscorer this season with 18 goals in 32 appearances in all competitions so far.

The future of the star has also come under question following United's poor performances on the pitch this season as the Red Devils are set to end the current campaign without a single trophy and are in danger of missing qualification for the Champions League.

The Manchester side are currently placed seventh in the Premier League table with 51 points from 30 games, three behind Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the top-four spot.
