Who Is Cristiano Ronaldo Jr’s Mom?

The identity of the woman who gave birth to Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has been a major source of rumors and controversies since the soccer star announced his fatherhood to the world. When his former girlfriend, Irina Shayk, was struck off the list of possible mothers, it was revealed that during his days in Manchester United, Ronaldo was reportedly involved in a one-night-stand with a waitress. Upon realizing that she had conceived, the waitress contacted the famed footballer with the news and was directed to conduct a DNA test which confirmed beyond doubt that the baby was Ronaldo’s.

The soccer icon decided to take full responsibility for his child since abortion was not possible with the waitress being of the Catholic faith. A while later, rumors started spreading that Ronaldo bought the woman’s silence with the sum of $10 million which gave him full custody of the boy and the waitress was advised never to try contacting the boy in the future. According to recent rumors, the woman is currently a student in Britain and is eager to contact her son in spite of the deal she struck with the dad.
