Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. celebrated his 10th birthday on Wednesday and his father has bought him a pair of football boots.
They were seen in a footage as the dad helped the son tie the boots before they ran onto a makeshift football pitch where Junior hit the ball into an empty net.
He was born on June 17, 2010 in San Diego, California, United States and his legendary father also took to social media to celebrate the lad.
The Juventus striker took to Twitter to wish his son a happy birthday. The former Real Madrid striker says he can't believe he is 10 years old already.
Ronaldo’s mum, Dolores Aviero, also penned a heartwarming tribute to her grandson as she was the one that brought the baby to Portugal after he was born in an American clinic.
In a biography in 2014, the grandmother told of how she went to Florida to pick up Cristiano Jr and that was when the father was representing Portugal at the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa.
And over a decade after, the identity of Cristiano Jr.’s mother is still a major secret held by the family. However as he clocks 10 on Wednesday, the delighted and proud Aviero said the child is destined for the family.
