It looks like things are getting serious.

Cristiano Ronaldo (31) made his red carpet debut with girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez (21) just four months into their romance at the The Best FIFA Football Awards 2016 ceremony, where he was awarded Best Male Player.

And his model other half looked to be taking her new family role seriously as they were joined by the Portugese superstar's six-year-old son Cristiano Jr.

The trio beamed as they posed with Ronaldo's award and it looks like they aren't wasting any time hiding their burgeoning romance.

It's not the first time she has been spotted bonding with her beau's son - she was pictured at Real Madrid's Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in recent months cheering on the football star.

While he has been linked to a number of women, it marks his first high profile romance since splitting with Victoria's Secret model Irina Shayk in 2015 after five years of dating.

Earlier this month, Ronaldo said he said his son's happiness is his primary concern and always encourages him to "be yourself and be polite".

"There are people who sometimes say to him that "there is another player who is better than your father", but he knows how to deal with that," he told ON TV.

"He is a smart boy, like me. I often tell him 'be yourself and be polite'.

"I know that he will go through periods of adversity as there are jealous people out there, but I see him as a happy child."
