Behold, baby CR7 in his Early Days.
Behold, baby CR7 in his Early Days.

For Biography starters, his favourite nickname remains ‘the GOAT.’ Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born on the 5th day of February 1985 to his mother, Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro and late father, José Dinis Aveiro.

Upon his birth, his Dad named him ‘Ronaldo’ – in admiration for the former US president Ronald Reagan, who was just sworn in for his US second term.

Also, Ronnie’s birthplace is Funchal, located in Madeira Islands. In case you didn’t know, this is not Portugal’s mainland but one of the islands claimed by the country.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the last child of three children born of the union between his parents, Maria Dolores (a cook) and José Dinis Aveiro (a former Soldier, gardener, and kit man).

Behold, one of the earliest photos of the Football legend alongside his mum and dad after they just returned from a catholic church – Funchal civil parish of Santo António.

Growing Up as the Baby of his Household:

Ronnie grew up alongside his older brother, Hugo and two older sisters, Elma and Katia. As a last-born child of his family, the media has it that Mum and Dad pampered him a lot.

Back then, Cristiano got away scot-free whenever he commits an offence at home. Instead of owning up to his deeds, he would pretend to cry in front of his parents.

After which, his older siblings (Hugo, Elma and Katia) take blames for his misdemeanour.

Unlike his elders, being babied and spoiled took the pressure off him. Hugo, Emla, and Katia had to meet their parents’ expectations.

As a boy, Ronaldo set his dream to achieve success in his own way. He got a unique chance in life than Hugo his elder brother. It might interest you to know that while growing up, Cristiano never ran out of clothes.

From the onset, Maria Dolores dos Santos and her husband, José Dinis, ensured he gets and wears awesome collections of dresses. They use it to shade the fact that he was from a poor home.

Cristiano Ronaldo Family Background:

Everyone knows the Self-proclaimed GOAT is Football First Billionaire. Interestingly, CR7 comes from humble beginnings.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s family weren’t rich, and he experienced extreme poverty in his childhood.

The house where he grew up reflected the poverty faced by his household at that time. It serves as a lesson in humility he will never forget.

Cristiano grew up in an impoverished home and he shared a room with all his siblings.

Because of extreme poverty in his family, his mother once told the media she wanted to abort Ronaldo when she was pregnant with him.

Part of this decision came due to her husband’s alcoholism problem. Also, the fear of having too many children.

After going to the hospital, doctors refused to perform the abortion. When Maria Dolores’ request got declined, she went AWOL. CR7’s mum began drinking warm beer.

She also ran frantically, hoping for her son would die in her belly. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. Cristiano was born hale and hearty.

Cristiano Ronaldo Family Origin:

Without a doubt, everyone thinks CR7 comes from Portugal or one of its islands. This is not true.

Lifebogger’s research on the Genealogy of Cristiano reveals facts that show his lineage or family roots being traced to Praia.

This is the capital and largest city of Cape Verde – an island country in West Africa. By implication, Cristiano Ronaldo is from West Africa.

Did you know… the family of Isabel Rosa da Piedade – the mother of Humberto Cirilo Aveiro – who is Cristiano Ronaldo’s paternal grandfather – comes from Praia, Capital of Cape Verde.

At the age of 16, her family left their native Praia to survive on another Atlantic Island called ‘Madeira.’ This was where her next three generations were born.

Behold, one of her descendants is Cristiano Ronaldo, Football’s GOAT. This means CR7 has his family origin from West Africa.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – Untold Football Story:

When Ronaldo was of schooling age, he got enrolled at Escola Básica e Secundária Gonçalves Zarco, where he began his elementary education. While a junior, Ronnie wasn’t interested in studying.

He was more concerned about accompanying his father to Andorinha Football club in Funchal. This was where José Dinis Aveiro took up a second job as a kit man.

Ronaldo’s disdain for school got so intense as he grew up. He would never do his homework, but rather indulge in his fast-growing passion for football. At the age of eight, he signed for Andorinha football academy.

To keep a close watch over him, his Dad (José Dinis Aveiro) decided to take a full-time job as a kit man at the academy. Helping his son lay a solid career foundation was an important role for José Aveiro.

Ronaldo’s childhood teammate Ricardo Santos, (now the coach of Andorinha) recalls that he was overly ambitious and emotionally fragile while he was at Andorinha FC. According to Ricardo;


Moving up the Youth Ranks:

After spending two years with CF Andorinha, CR7 went on to have a trial with Nacional, another academy on the island of Madeira. While playing there, people observed he had a special talent.

This was evident in the trophies and honours he won for them. Behold, a picture of the youngster as he celebrates a tournament win with his parents, club staff and some family members.

At that time, no one knew he was going to become the planet’s greatest footballer.

Early on, there has been massive support from Cristiano Ronaldo's family members on his career.

Leaving Parents and Family Members for Lisbon:

In a quest to improve his football skills and save his parents from poverty, Cristiano made the biggest decision of his youth. He left his family in Madeira for Lisbon at the age of 12.

That year 1997, Ronnie went on a three-day trial with Sporting CP, who signed him for a fee of £1,500 — after he passed their trials.

Leaving his parents and family members wasn’t an easy decision as he cried every day. In fact, this was the second time Ronaldo lived up to his childhood nickname “Cry Baby.” Despite the loneliness, he persevered and continued working hard.

Aiming Higher and the quest to Drop out of School:

By age 14, Ronaldo began to have that insane mentality to push himself in doing the extra-ordinary with the soccer ball.

This he did, all in the name of keeping a positive attitude of overcoming the loneliness of being away from family.

As time went on, he began disliking the idea of mixing education with football.

In his quest to focus entirely on the game, Ron came to terms with his mother to stop schooling. Although popular among students in his class, poor Ronnie never had a great time with his teachers.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s School Expulsion Story:

Did you know?… He once got expelled after throwing a chair at his teacher, who he claimed had “disrespected” him.

After his expulsion from school, Ronaldo vowed to prove his teacher wrong. He reacted to the pains of being expelled by eating and living football.

At that time, he worked on his speed and build. However, gaining excessive speed was deemed too much for his tender age.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Heart Problem:

Having excessive speed as a child gave his stressed body a strong emotional response, including anxiety.

It led to Cristiano to having a racing heart disease. This was a health complication that nearly forced him to give up football.

In response to his failing heart, Sporting CP medical staff sought approval from Cristiano Ronaldo’s parents to have surgery on him.

To the joy of his family members, a laser was used to enhance his cardiac pathways. This made blood circulation in his heart become normal. Thankfully, football continued after Doctors cleared him from the hospital.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography — The Road to Fame Story:

At age 16, CR7 decided to transform himself – becoming very ambitious because of constant hard training.

In no time, Sporting’s first-team manager László Bölöni offered him a pre-season opportunity for the senior squad. This came after he got impressed with his dribbling.

In 2003, precisely on the 12th day of August, Ronnie got the chance to meet destiny. That day, Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United had a pre-season friendly match and László Bölöni selected Ronaldo.

Did you know?… His brilliance helped Sporting beat United 3-1.

After the match, United’s players especially Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand urged Sir Alex Ferguson to sign the youngster.

To tell the truth, the former Manchester United boss got impressed at Ronaldo’s great talent of dribbling and powerful shots. Here is the highlight of the Match that changed his destiny.

Eventually, Cristiano joined United for a fee (£12.24 million) which made him the most expensive teenager in English football history.

Upon joining United, he requested for the number 28 jersey – similar to what he wore at Sporting. Fortunately, Ronnie received the number 7 shirt instead.

United greats like George Best, Eric Cantona and David Beckham previously wore the jersey number. Wearing the number 7 shirt became an extra source of motivation for the Portuguese.

Cristiano Ronaldo Biography – The Success Story:

At United, Ronny not only maintained his awesome form but improved on his skills and began to prove he can be the best footballer in the world.

Following the 2006 FIFA World Cup, he got involved in an incident where club teammate Wayne Rooney got sent off. Due to that, Ronaldo got booed throughout the 2006–07 season.

As a way of silencing English and some United fans, CR7 vowed to keep scoring goals. In no time, he broke the 20-goal barrier for the first time and won his first Premier League title.

Several collective and individual successes including his first FIFA Ballon d’Or, followed.

Ahead of the 2009–10 season, CR7 joined Real Madrid for a world-record transfer fee at the time — £80 million (€94 million) with a €1 billion buy-out clause.

At Los Blancos, he came back to his Ballon d’Or-winning form — which he won consecutively.

Scoring 451 times in 438 matches with a host of trophies and honours turned Ronnie into a self-acclaimed Football GOAT.

Following a fallout with Los Blancos president Florentino Perez, Cristiano felt he was no longer indispensable. This made him number his days with Real Madrid.

Massimiliano Allegri tried his luck and shockingly won the jackpot by signing the Legend to Juventus. At Juve, Cristiano began breaking national and club goal scoring records.

To unify his honour, he even led Portugal to gather more national trophies and honours to his cabinet.

At the time of putting up this Bio, Cristiano Ronaldo is now among World’s Top Seven Sporting Greats. The rest, as they say, is history.

Speaking about her first sight of him, Georgina once narrated;




Cristiano Ronaldo’s Children:

The Madeira native became a father at the age of 25 when his first child, Cristiano Jr, was born – on the 17th day of June 2010.

CR7 has never publicly revealed the identity of Cristiano Jr’s biological mother, whom he has kept secret since his birth in the United States.

Cristiano Jr is a prominent figure in his father’s life and he often appears by his side at award ceremonies. Like his father, he dreams to become a great footballer.

The Portugal captain also has twins, a boy and a girl – Mateo and Eva. Both children came with the help of a surrogate mother – in the summer of 2017.

Following the birth of his twins, there were once murmurings that Ronaldo is set to welcome the fourth addition to his family.

This became his first child with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez. She gave birth to a girl whom they call Alana Martina.

Cristiano Ronaldo Lifestyle:

So what does Ronnie spend his money on? One of Ronaldo’s biggest hobbies is acquiring cars and houses. He drives a $300,000 (207,000) Lamborghini Aventador, along with his Maserati. Cristiano also owns a Bentley, a Porsche, a Mercedes, among others.

CR7 House:

As we write his Bio, Cristiano Ronaldo lives in a rather modest $1.6 million mansion built by Otero Group, a luxury villa developer. Thou the money may seem like a rather small figure for a footballer who has routinely featured in Forbes.

Also to note, the holiday house forms just a small part of the $47 million property portfolios he owns.

This includes a home in Turin, an apartment in New York City’s Trump Tower, and a pad in La Finca, Spain. Among all CR7’s houses, he sets his eyes more on the one above.

CR7 Family Outing:

Even though football took him to Italy, Ronaldo’s holiday heart clearly lies on the Iberian peninsula. Because of that, he purchased a brand new pad set to host his family on their holidays to the Spanish coastline.

CR7 Personal Life:

To explain his personality, we’ve backdropped a BBC report. The Broadcasting company once revealed why great rivals Ronaldo and Messi are more similar than we think. At this juncture, we’ve picked two things about CR7’s personality.

First, the Goal machine is forever proud of his humble background. Secondly, he is full of self-belief. As in, Ronnie knows he has the destiny for greatness.

Cristiano Ronaldo Family Life:

A feeling of togetherness is the most precious gift Ronnie has given every member of his household since rising to fame.

This has created an unbreakable web of love. Here, we’ll tell you more about his parents and other family members.

About Christiano Ronaldo’s Father:

José Dinis Aveiro was born on the 30th day of September 1953, to his mother, Filomena Aveiro. Asides from being a kitman and gardener, Cristiano Ronaldo’s father was once a soldier who fought a popular war for Portugal.

While in the military, José Dinis Aveiro participated in helping Portugal prevent Angola from winning its independence.

Sadly, he and his men lost the war, one in which he saw fellow opposing soldiers committing atrocities. The war left a mental strain on him and this was how José Dinis became a chronic Alcoholic.

Ronaldo doesn’t drink and the main reason for that is because of his dad. José Dinis Aveiro was an unrepentant alcoholic before his death on the 6th of September 2005.

CR7’s Dad died of liver failure when he was just two years into his career at Old Trafford. José Dinis Aveiro’s death was a result of problems accrued from the over-consumption of alcohol.

About Cristiano Ronaldo’s Mother:

Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro was born on the 31 December 1954 to her mother, Matilde dos Santos da Viveiros and father, Jose Vivieros (a cleaner). Ronaldo’s mother is a cook by occupation.

Maria did not remarry after José Dinis Aveiro’s demise in 2005. According to a report, she went on to begin dating a man named Jose Andrade. Meet Maria Dolores’ boyfriend, who is likely to be Cristiano Ronaldo’s stepdad.

These days, Maria lives a life of luxury. She enjoys spending time with her bread-winner son and grandchildren. CR7’s mum has a massive fan base on social media – more than 1.7 million Instagram followers – 2020 stats.

For her family, a sad moment once came when Maria Dolores dos Santos got diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007.

Fortunately, she recovered completely after several cycles of radiation therapy. To date, she takes anti-cancer drugs to keep the disease at bay.

In 2015, Spanish authorities accused her of money laundering. They stopped at Madrid’s ‘Barajas’ airport – for carrying €55,000 in her handbag.

Maria had failed to fill out the declaration form and her money got confiscated by the Spanish authorities.

About Cristiano Ronaldo’s Brother:

Hugo dos Santos Aveiro, born in 1975, is 10-years CR7’s senior. In recent years, life has been more challenging for him – a man who many consider as someone who lives in the shadow of his superstar sibling.

Back in the days, Cristiano Ronaldo’s brother was a onetime promising footballer. Sadly, he fell into a life of drinking and use of drugs in the late 1990s.

As you’ve guessed, that drinking part was an addiction gene that ran in the Aveiro family.

Thanks to Ronnie’s support, Hugo, now recovered receives blessings from Cristiano’s love and support. As I write Cristiano Ronaldo’s Bio, Hugo is the manager of CR7’s museum in Madeira, Portugal.

About Katia Aveiro:

Born on the 5fh day of October 1976 (nine years his senior), she is Cristiano Ronaldo’s immediate elder sister. Katia Aveiro is a Portuguese singer with a successful career thanks to her brother’s popularity.

Among all Ronaldo’s sisters, she is the closest to him. Kieta takes an ample amount of time to defend her brother whenever he is being dragged by fans.

She hits hard on mostly Anti-Messi fans or those who have anything against CR7. This is the best of Katia Aveiro’s songs we know.

About Elma dos Santos Aveiro:

Born on the 10th day of March 1973, she is the eldest of Cristiano Ronaldo’s sisters. Also the first-born child of the family. Although less popular than Katia, Elma is into modelling.

She went to school at Peru before moving to the United States to attend the University of Cincinnati.

Elma labels her kid brother as ‘the best ever.’ Like Katia, she is merciless to fans who drag CR7’s.

These days, she takes her battle directly to her brother’s rival Lionel Messi. Elma once posted the image of Lionel Messi worshipping his brother.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Grandparents:

From his mother’s side, there exists substantial information about the Portuguese relatives.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s grandparents (Jose Vivieros and Maria-Angela Spinola) make up a large number of Portuguese people who live in Perth’s suburb of Yangebup, Western Australia.

Both grannies left Funchal (in Madeira) to Australia around the year 2000 – all in the name of searching for a different life.

During that time, Ronaldo’s mother, Maria Dolores, opted to remain in Portugal to closely monitor her son’s climb at Sporting Lisbon.

Maria Dolores has lots of relatives in Australia. Truly, had fate gone another way, even Ronaldo might have moved to Australia to join them.

Jose Vivieros, CR7’s granddad, is proud of Maria for looking after his grandson who is making waves in world football.

From his Dad’s side, Filomena Aveiro is (photographed below) Cristiano Ronaldo’s grandmother.

The mother of CR7’s dad (late José Dinis Aveiro) passed away in a hospital in Portugal on the 8th day of July 2014 after being admitted for several weeks.
