Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo is dealing with the mother who gave birth to his son, Cristiano Jr., six months ago. The Sunday Mirror reports that the unidentified woman is a 20-year-old British student who now wants her child back after exchanging him for a £10million payment.
After becoming pregnant from a one-night stand with the athlete, Ronaldo cut a deal with her so he would have exclusive guardianship. The woman signed a contract with his lawyers agreeing to not tell anyone, including her family, that she is the mother.
Apparently, she disappeared during her pregnancy, had the baby, and then told everyone she received an unexpected windfall.
Friends say that when she asks to see her son, Ronaldo taunts her by telling her he may consider her requests, if she repays some of the money.
A source close to the woman said, “She’s often calling him late at night. She cried down the phone to him and pleads with him. He shouldn’t even be in contact with her, but they have got into a twisted sort of routine.
“She even calls him after matches to congratulate him on how he played, hoping that one day she can appeal to his better nature, but he simply leads her on and teases her about Cristiano Jr.
“She feels like she has sold her soul. She has this millionaire lifestyle, but can never tell her friends and family the truth about what has happened – and that makes her incredibly lonely.”
A friend of Ronaldo said, “As far as he is concerned, it was her choice, her decision. He says, ‘She has zero rights to my son. She’s not seeing him ever again’.
But he keeps taking her calls as, deep down, he’s worried that she’s going to try to fight him to see the child and he wants to know what she is thinking. Apparently the contract she signed is completely water-tight. But she has the strength of a mother trying to get a child back – so anything could happen.”
Meanwhile, his girlfriend Irina Shayk has stood by him the whole time. In fact, they recently had a vacation in The Maldives.
