Who is her father Cristiano?
Portuguese professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born under the zodiac sign Aquarius on 5 February 1985 in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. He’s widely regarded as one of the best players of all time, while he’s also won numerous awards for his abilities, including four European Golden Shoes (record), three UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Awards and five Ballon d’Or Awards; Ronaldo holds various other records, including for international appearances with 205, international goals with 128 and most goals in the Champions league with 140.
He was raised in the civil parish Santo Antonio of Funchal alongside his older sisters Liliana Catia ‘Katia’ and Elma, and older brother Hugo by their father Jose Dinis Aveiro who was a gardener and mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Viveiros de Aveiro who was a cook and a cleaning lady. Ronaldo was nearly aborted as his mother didn’t want to raise him in poverty, as the family struggled to put food on the table and his father was an alcoholic, but the doctor refused to go on with the procedure.
Ronaldo’s early years in soccer were shaped by his childhood love for the game; he began playing for the local team Andorinha and eventually caught the eye of Sporting Lisbon, one of Portugal’s top soccer clubs. His time at Sporting Lisbon’s youth academy was instrumental in honing his skills and showcasing his immense potential; his performances for the youth team earned him a spot in the senior squad for the 2002-2003 season.
In 2003, Cristiano’s amazing contributions to Sporting Lisbon caught the attention of Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary manager of Manchester United. Ferguson was quick to recognize the young boy’s talent and he signed him to Manchester United in August 2003 for a then-record transfer fee for a teenager; Ronaldo’s arrival in the English Premier League marked the beginning of an amazing career.
At Manchester United, Ronaldo quickly established himself as one of the most exciting and dynamic players in the world; known for his great pace, exceptional dribbling ability and goal-scoring skills, he became a key figure in the team’s success. Ronaldo’s partnership with Wayne Rooney and other star players led Manchester United to multiple domestic and international triumphs.
In 2007-08, Cristiano Ronaldo scored 31 Premier League goals with an over performance of 237% from 13.05 xG.

In the 2007-2008 season, Ronaldo’s performances reached new heights as he guided Manchester United to a Premier League title, a UEFA Champions League trophy and several individual awards, including the FIFA World Player of the Year. His goal-scoring prowess and versatility on the field solidified his status as one of the best players in the world.
After multiple highly successful seasons at Manchester United, Ronaldo made a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009; the transfer, which set a new world record at the time, marked the beginning of a historic era for both Ronaldo and Real Madrid. Ronaldo’s time with the Spanish team was characterized by unprecedented goal-scoring records, and both individual and team successes.
During his nine seasons with Real Madrid, Ronaldo won four Champions League titles, two La Liga titles and numerous other domestic and international honors; his rivalry with Barcelona’s player Lionel Messi defined an era of soccer dominance, with both players pushing each other to new heights and rewriting record books along the way.
One of Ronaldo’s most memorable moments with Real Madrid came in the 2013-2014 season when he scored an incredible 17 goals in a single Champions League campaign, helping lead his team to their tenth European Cup/Champions League title.
In 2018, Ronaldo made a surprising move to Juventus, joining the Italian Serie A; despite being in the later stages of his career, Ronaldo continued to showcase his goal-scoring abilities and leadership qualities as he helped Juventus secure Serie A titles and became the first player to win domestic league titles in England, Spain, and Italy.
Beyond his club success, Ronaldo has been an integral part of the Portuguese national team since making his senior debut in 2003; he’s represented Portugal in multiple UEFA European Championships and FIFA World Cups, leaving a strong mark on the international stage, as well. In 2016, Ronaldo led Portugal to victory in the UEFA European Championship, marking a historic moment in the nation’s soccer history.
Ronaldo’s impact extends beyond the pitch; his dedication to fitness, training and maintaining a healthy lifestyle has inspired various other athletes. Off the field, he’s engaged in numerous philanthropic endeavors, supporting charitable causes and using his popularity to make a positive impact on society.
Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in 2021, marking a highly anticipated reunion with the club where he achieved tremendous success earlier in his career, however, this didn’t last as long as his fans might had hoped as Ronaldo joined the Saudi soccer club Al Nassr on 1 January 2023, signing a €200 million per year contract, the highest in the history of the sport. He brought his family with him to Saudi Arabia after signing the contract.
