Cristiano Ronaldo Jr., born to one of the greatest footballers, is Cristiano Ronaldo's son. Not only does he reflect his dad in his name, but also his dribbles. Will he carry on the Ronaldo legacy? Let's find out.


Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodríguez have had multiple children. In June 2017 and via surrogate, the two welcomed twins, Eva and Mateo.

Five months after this, they had Alana Martina without the help of surrogacy. Then in 2022, Rodríguez gave birth to another pair of twins. But, tragically, the newborn boy died during childbirth while the girl Bella Esmeralda survived.

The pair were devastated as Ronaldo took to Instagram to announce the death of his newborn. In his post, he wrote that it's the worst pain a parent could experience.

The grieving father said their newborn Bella supplied him and his family with strength and happiness. He then thanked the doctors and nurses for all their help too.


This tragedy is a reminder to cherish our time with our children. Ronaldo makes sure to do this, taking to the online world to share the beautiful moments he has with his kids.

Taking to Instagram, Ronaldo celebrated his oldest, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr., a son born before his current partnership. In the post, Ronaldo congratulated him on turning 12 years old.

Regarding soccer, one would think that the sport would run through Ronaldo Jr.'s veins. But, his dad said he would never pressure him into going in that direction -- although he may not have to.



A 12-year-old Ronaldo Jr. has his eyes on the ball, focused on following in his father's footsteps. He made this determination clear while in a Manchester United training session. The young boy replicated his father's prolific "Ronaldo Chop."

Since his dad returned to Manchester United, Ronaldo Jr. has joined the United Academy and plays for Manchester United under 12s.

He is regularly seen playing with fellow red devils. Many believe he is a rising star, with some saying he plays better than his father at his age.



And so, the Ronaldo family hasn't simply picked up this dad and son's similarities in looks but also their talent in football -- traits that led him to the nickname "Cristianinho." This moniker means "Little Cristiano."

Ronaldo Jr. is his father's oldest child, born in San Diego in June 2010. His father is said to have full custody, but the question is, from who?

From Posh Spice, Kim Kardashian, Gemma Atkinson, and much more, Ronaldo has had his fair share of partners.

Nevertheless, Ronaldo Jr.'s mother remains a mystery to the public, and if this dad has anything to say about it, it will stay that way.


But, the father and footballer stated that he would tell his son when he is grown. Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, he expressed:

"When Cristiano [Junior] is going to grow up, I am always going to say the truth to him because he deserves it because he is my son. But I am not going to say [it just] because people want me to say."

The iconic football player said that his son has, even without a mom, grown up around a loving family, -- including a fantastic father, he joked.
