Cristiano Ronaldo’s family: a detailed study of the pillars in CR7’s personal life

Dominic Toretto has spoken a lot about family. Family is, according to him and all memes aside, one of the most important things in life. Here, we take a look at the family of Cristiano Ronaldo, who they are, and their relationships with him.

Early life

CR7 was born Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro. He was born on 5 February, 1985, in the island of Madeira. He grew up in the Funchal parish of Santo Antonio.

Ronaldo grew up a fan of football, and picked up the sport from a young age. He displayed an immense talent in the game, and was noticed by scouts in Portugal. He wasted little time pursuing it as a career, and football would never be the same again.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s parents

Ronaldo’s father’s name was Jose Dinis Aveiro. He was a municipal gardener by profession, and was also a kit man for the Portuguese club Andorinha. Ronaldo was the youngest of four children. Jose’s other children’s names are Hugo, Elma and Liliana Catia.


The tragedy of Ronaldo’s life, according to him, was the death of his father. Jose died when the young boy was 20 years old. As a result, he did not get to see his son become a global phenomenon.

“I really don’t know my father 100%,” Ronaldo said in an interview. “He was a drunk person. I never spoke with him, like a normal conversation. To be the Number 1, and he don’t see nothing, and he don’t see what I became.”

Ronaldo’s mother’s name is Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro. She was a cook by profession, and the person who Ronaldo adores the most. Many fans have seen mother and son hold the latter’s trophies and medals, and also spending time together. She is the dearest person to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, and after his father’s death, she raised him and his siblings.

Thanks to her efforts, her children are very successful today. Hugo is a successful player in the construction industry, and is the director of Museu CR7. Katia is a professional singer, and she launched her music persona, La Ronalda, with the backing of her family.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend

Ronaldo is in a relationship with Georgina Rodriguez, who is a Spanish supermodel. After his breakup with Irina Shayk, he was the subject of intense gossip and discussion. However, he met Georgina, and it was love at first sight.

In November of 2016, Ronaldo and Georgina were spotted in Disneyland Paris, confirming their relationship. They first met when Georgina was working at Gucci, where the focused Spaniard caught the eye of the Portuguese forward.

The couple hid their relationship for a few months, but everyone came to know after the Disneyland spot. Then they gave in, increasing their PDA and their interactions on social media. Georgina initially faced a lot of trouble after the confirmation of her relationship, including losing her job due to fans approaching her.

Speaking on how she got fired, Georgina recalled, “I was hiding, but fans were looking for me at the store. They used to call up and ask about me, pretending to be clients.

“There were always photographers waiting for me. The director told me to go down to the basement because he did not want to see me in the store. I started to be very uncomfortable, and then I left.”

She recovered from those difficulties, and began a career as a model. Currently, she is under contract with Uno Models, a modelling agency based in Madrid. She is an independent woman, and has stated many times that she does not want to take advantage of the money and fortune that comes with dating Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s children

Ronaldo is a proud father, and is a parent to four children. His first child is a son named Cristiano Jr. He was born in 2010, and was born in the USA to a surrogate mother. Ronaldo refused to reveal the identity of the mother, stating he wished to respect her privacy. He also has full custody of the boy.

Two years after the birth of his first child, Ronaldo welcomed twins Eva and Mateo into the world. They were also reported to be born via surrogacy. Later, he started dating Georgina, and she gave birth to Alana Martina.

Ronaldo is a model father, and loves his kids. However, he is very particular about behaviour and lifestyle habits of his family. The food they eat is healthy and tailor-made to suit a healthy way of life.

That way, Ronaldo may not be a fun dad. After all, this is the same man who brushed aside Coca Cola bottles and advised viewers to prefer water instead. However, he loves his children very much, and is always showing his love for them on social media and the like.

Will Cristiano Ronaldo get married?

CR7 can claim to be many things, but being married is not one of them. However, his many years of dating Georgina suggest the 36-year-old could tie the knot sooner than later. Moreover, with all his peers married, he might also choose to check that box.

There is also the fact that this is his longest relationship yet, and from the looks of it, the one he is enjoying the most as well. He seems to be quite happy in his relationship with Georgina, and has said that he would like to marry her one day.

“We’ll be (married) one day, for sure,” Ronaldo said in an interview.

“It’s my mum’s dream as well. So, one day. Why not? She’s my friend. We have conversations. I open the heart for her and she opens the heart for me.”
