Who Is Cristiano Ronaldo Jr's Mother And How Old Is He?

As the news spreads that Cristiano Ronaldo is about to become a father for the fifth time, fans turn their attention to his eldest son, his proprotégé, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.

Twelve years after departing Manchester United for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo made a sensational return to Old Trafford this year - and his son has been tipped to join, too.

The Portuguese phenomenon, who joins the red side of Manchester from Juventus, has made no secret of his desire for his eldest son to follow in his footsteps.

Cristiano Jr linked up with the youth academy at Juventus after his dad made the move to the Serie A in 2008 and he boasts a remarkable goalscoring record as well.

The youngster, who turns 12 next June, has quickly been able to showcase the type of talent that made his father a modern-day legend.

Just after his ninth birthday, Cristiano Jr scored four times on his eagerly anticipated Juve debut in 2018, according to Tuttosport.

And later that season, the youngster - cheered on by his dad in the stands - scored seven in a single half against CS Martimo, says AS.

When delving into his statistics at the Old Lady's youth set-up, the 11-year-old scored a staggering 58 goals inside just 28 games, adding a further 18 assists in his first season for the under-9s team. Like father, like son, eh?


Proud dad Ronaldo told DAZN at the time: “I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad.

“He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it’s difficult. 

“He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me.”

Ronaldo's move to United, which was confirmed on Deadline Day, could pave the way for his talented son to join the academy with Wayne Rooney’s son Kai (11) having recently signed with the club.

Could we be seeing Rooney and Ronaldo linking up again soon? Talk about deja vu.

He was born in the United States and the footballer having full custody of the boy. His mother has never been publicly identified. 

In 2015, Ronaldo was interviewed by Jonathan Ross where he made a statement about the identity of his son’s mother.

“Junior doesn’t know who his mother is, but don’t make a problem out of it,” Ronaldo stated.

“I’m not gonna lie to Cristiano because he deserves to know the truth, but I don’t want to tell the truth because people want me to do it.”
