Without the shadow of a doubt, Cristiano is one of the best players in the world. Was and will be. I have the pride to write this, even if I am a Messi fan!

Cristiano Ronaldo was born on 5 February 1985 in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal and is currently 37 years old. He then grew up in the nearby parish of Santos Antonio amount four siblings. Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother is Maria Dolores dos Santos Viveiros da Aveiro who was a cook. His father’s name is Jose Dinis Aveiro, a kit man, and a gardener.
Cristiano Ronaldo professional career started at a very young age. His club career started at the age of 16 and has been among the top players that ever walked on the football grass. Cristiano has also won 4 golden shoes and 6 Ballon d’Or / Awards.
The question is why does Cristiano Ronaldo still live with his mother?
Many people think it’s funny, some think it’s weird, but some are curious to know why Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother still lives with him in the same house. Well, Cristiano Ronaldo has been asked a similar question in an interview and his response was very heartwarming.
A journalist asks Cristiano Ronaldo: “Why does your mother still live with you? Why don’t you build her a house?”
Cristiano Ronaldo replies:
“My mother raised me and she dedicated her life for me. She would go to sleep hungry, just to let me eat. We had no money at all. She worked 7 days a week and nights as a maid to buy my first shoes so I could be a player. All my success is dedicated to her and because of her and as long as she has a life, she will always be by my side, she has everything I can give. She is my refuge and my greatest gift.”
I hope all kids have similar opinion of their parents when they grow up, as they should. They gave us life, and we need to give love and respect back.
