Rise to Fame
A direct descendant of his fame of the Portuguese football legend is more than enough, but it is not only thanks to his father that Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. has attracted so much media attention lately. In April 2017, his father released a video featuring the young talent imitating his father’s famous pose on free kicks and scoring a wonderful goal.
In June 2017, a short video of him showing his remarkable ability with the ball attracted worldwide media attention and was virally spread on social media. When Real Madrid players gathered at the Santiago-Bernabéu Stadium to celebrate their 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League in Wales, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. and a few other kids started playing with the ball. A Real Madrid fan managed to record a 20-second video of the moment when the prodigy in the club’s purple away jersey dribbled two older children in the penalty area, hit them both with a wonderful pirouette, and finally dribbled past the goalkeeper and kicked the ball straight into the net. Thousands of fans present were fascinated by this moment, and the video was shown in several news media and attracted a large number of viewers on the Internet.
His mum’s Identity
The identity of the woman who gave birth to Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has been a major source of rumor and controversy since the announcement of the football star’s paternity. When his former girlfriend Irina Shayk was removed from the list of possible mothers, it was revealed that Ronaldo was allegedly involved in a one-night stand with a waitress during his time at Manchester United. When the waitress realized that she was pregnant, she contacted the famous footballer with the news and was ordered to do a DNA test that confirmed beyond a doubt that the baby was Ronaldo’s.
The soccer icon decided to take full responsibility for his child, as abortion was not possible because the waitress was of the Catholic faith. Sometime later, rumors began to spread that Ronaldo bought the woman’s silence with the sum of $10 million, giving him full custody of the boy, and the waitress was advised not to try to contact the boy in the future. According to recent rumors, the woman is currently a student in the UK and is desperate to contact her son despite the agreement she made with the father.
The child prodigy is still young, i.e. it is still in the growth process so that its size and body weight cannot be determined. However, he is of slim stature, his hair color is brown and his eyes have the same color as his hair.
