Cristiano Ronaldo Biography - The Complete Life Story and Biography of Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro was born on February 5, 1985 in Santo António, a neighborhood of Madeira; a small island off the west coast of Portugal. The youngest of four children, to mother, Maria Dolores dos Santos, and father, José Dinis Aveiro, he grew up in poverty, living in a tin-roofed house, and had to share his bedroom with his older siblings: Hugo, Elma, and Liliana Cátia. His father was an alcoholic and to make ends meet his mother worked two jobs: one as a cook, the other as a cleaner. His middle name, Ronaldo, was given to him by his father after his favorite actor, Ronald Reagan. From a very early age, it was evident that he had a talent for football and his parents knew that this was his pathway out of the slums. As a boy he played for a small-town club, Andorinha, where his father was the kit man and by the time he was 10 he was touted as “one for the future.” His godfather Fernao Sousa once told reporters, “All he wanted to do was play football. He loved the game so much he’d miss meals or escape out of his bedroom window with a ball when he was supposed to be doing his homework.” After a small stint with Primeira Liga club Nacional (based in Madeira), Ronaldo was offered the opportunity to go on a three-day trial with Sporting CP (Sporting Clube de Portugal), another Primeira Liga side. The club was so impressed with the 12-year-old that they signed him straight away for $2,000. Later that year he moved to Alcochete near Lisbon to join the club’s youth academy. To be continued...
