The mother of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s baby son is an American waitress with whom he had a one-night stand, it was claimed today.
It was previously believed the Portuguese footballer, 25, had paid a surrogate mother to deliver him a child. But a British paper the Sunday Mirror claimed today the footballer met the unnamed woman in a Los Angeles restaurant last year.
The former Manchester United player became a father on June 17, two days after his Portuguese team played the Ivory Coast in the World Cup. A friend revealed he approached the woman in L.A. with the blunt proposition: “Me, you, kiss!” The friend said it was ‘typical Ronnie’ to pretend his English is poor when it suits him. Then he whisked her back to his hotel for a one-night stand which left the girl pregnant – and Ronaldo with a £10million paternity bill. After hearing the baby was his, he told friends “I feel like Boris Becker” – a reference to the tennis star who fathered a love-child after having sex just once in a London restaurant – which cost him £20m.” Ronaldo’s friend said he was determined to be the best father he could, but did not equate that with settling down. He has reportedly decided not to tell his son, also named Cristiano, his mother’s identity until his 18th birthday.
