Who is Ronaldo Jr., Cristiano Ronaldo’s son? Wiki Bio
Ronaldo Jr. was born in San Diego, California USA, on 17 June 2010, so zodiac sign is Gemini but holds Portuguese nationality. He is popular for being the eldest son of Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the most famous soccer players in the world.
Early life and education
Ronaldo Jr. is being raised by his father and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez in Spain and Italy – where Christiano is currently playing – and his paternal grandmother Dolores. Ronaldo Jr. has not met his mother, and his guardians have told him that his mother died, while it is believed that the boy will not be told anything about his mother until he reaches the age of 18 or maybe even never.
His stepmother Georgina and Cristiano have recently adopted twins named Mateo and Eva, after Georgina gave birth to their daughter Alana Martina on 12 November 2017, and it has been revealed by Cristiano during an interview that Ronaldo Jr. wants to have six siblings so that the Cristiano’s CR7 brand would be completed. Ronaldo Jr. is apparently at high school in Spain where he is focused on learning both Spanish and English languages.
Career as a soccer player
Although only nine years old, one can say that Ronaldo Jr. has already launched his career in soccer. He began playing for a small club in Madrid called Club de Futbol Pozuelo de Alarcon in 2016.
In June 2017, his father uploaded a video of Cristiano Jr.’s free kick during which he is taking the same pose as his father and is a scoring a magnificent goal. Not long after that, a fan took a video of Cristiano Jr. while he was playing with the ball at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, after Real Madrid, the club for which Cristiano Ronaldo was playing, won the UEFA Champions League. In the video, Jr. can be seen with the ball in the penalty area dribbling around other children and scoring a goal by putting the ball in the bottom corner of the net. Many videos after that have been uploaded onto YouTube showing Jr.’s skills.
Ronaldo Jr.’s mother
The news of Cristiano becoming a father were a shock to the world, while many people wondered who might the mother of the child be. Rumors began circulating the internet that his mother is Irina Shayk whom Cristiano dated for a while, but these were later denied after Cristiano spoke about it in public. It is widely believed that Jr. is the son of an American waitress with whom Cristiano slept while he was playing for Manchester United, and as the woman is Catholic, abortion was not an option. He paid the woman £10 million to never reveal her identity to the public, never to contact Ronaldo Jr., and to give Cristiano full custody over the child.
The woman in question is currently studying in the UK, and although the deal was made, it appears that she is trying to get in touch with her son.
Hobbies and other interests
Ronaldo Jr. is spending most of his free time playing soccer, and when not playing is attending his father’s matches and cheering for him. He is also interested in playing other sports such as tennis and lacrosse, but is not focused on these as much as on soccer and is playing them just to change his routine a bit. He likes going to the cinema with his father and watching Disney movies such as “How To Train Your Dragon”, the “Toy Story” franchise, and “The Lion King” trilogy.

Cristiano Ronaldo was born in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal on 5 February 1985 – his zodiac sign is Aquarius and he holds Portuguese nationality. He is a professional soccer player who is recognized widely as one of the the greatest players of all times.

After nearly ten years of playing for Real Madrid, he signed a contract with Juventus in 2018 worth €100 million and has been playing with them since then.
