The identity of Cristiano Ronaldo‘s son’s mother is still a secret to many, including five-year-old Cristiano Jr.
Ronaldo opened up to The Jonathan Ross Show about his decision to keep that area of his life private.
“For me it is not a problem. In the world, many kids don’t have mum, don’t have dads or dads die or mums die,” the 30-year-old soccer star told the show, according to TMZ.
Ronaldo Jr. was born in 2010, and Cristiano was given full custody. Since then, the identity of the birth mother has remained private, despite public speculation.
“When Cristiano is going to grow up, I am always going to say the truth to him because he deserves, because he is my son but I am not going to say because people want me to say,” he said.
Cristiano went on to say he will tell his son when he feels the time is right, possibly in a few years when it is easier for him to understand.
“I’m going to say the time when I feel that is the right time. I don’t know 10, 11, 12? I don’t know let’s see.”
For now, Ronaldo seemed to have no doubt that his five-year-old has the support system he needs. “Cristiano has a dad, an unbelievable dad, a grandmother. I have the support of my family, great of course,” he said.
