Portuguese athlete Cristiano Ronaldo is considered one of the most decorated football players in the history of the sport.

At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Cristiano stunned the world by revealing that he would become a father. At the time, the footballer took to his social networks to publicize the news warned that the identity of the mother would remain anonymous, and urged the press not to intervene in her private life.
“The mother of the baby and I have agreed, as she prefers that his identity be kept confidential, that my son remains under my exclusive guardianship,” Ronaldo said through his Facebook account. It is worth mentioning that, when the footballer became a father, he was in a romantic relationship with a Russian model, named Irina Shayk.
In those years, various media speculated about who would be the mother in question. Some theories suggested that this was an American waitress who had had a one-night stand with Ronaldo. Some others suggested that the footballer may have chosen to rent a belly and, even, the Sunday Mirror newspaper revealed that, allegedly, Cristiano gave 10 million pounds to a British student to give in to the request.
In his biographical documentary screened in 2015 and titled “Ronaldo,” the soccer star revealed that when his son grows up, “I’m going to tell him the whole truth because he deserves it because he’s my son, but I won’t tell him because people want him to say it.” So far, it is unknown if Cristiano’s eldest son, now almost 12 years old, has knowledge of who his mother is.
