When your dad is Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the world’s best and highest paid athletes in the world, how else would you celebrate turning 10 other than taking him on in a sports challenge?

Ronaldo’s son, Cristiano Jnr did just that and the proud dad has taken to Instagram to share that moment as well as a beautiful tribute to his son with his 224 million Instagram followers.

The 35-year-old, football icon shared a sweet picture of himself and his mini-me eldest child both sporting matching long, lockdown locks.

Captioning the image in Portuguese, the proud dad wrote: “I can’t even believe that my boy is 10 years old!

“As time passed … you have always been a source of pride for the father who loves you so much. Congratulations, Puppy! A happy day! I love you so much!.”

Cristiano Ronaldo and son

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Ronaldo’s mini-me son has turned 10!

And the birthday gift was perfection. Cristiano recently brought out a new version of the famous Mercurial Safari football boots he released a decade ago, which is when his son was born, and Cristiano Jnr scored himself a pair.

In a series of videos shared to his Instagram stories, the hands-on dad helps his son lace up the new boots before the twinning pair take to a makeshift football pitch in their home, where they perform a quick running drill before before racing one another to the goals where the youngster scored a goal.

“He always wins,” Ronaldo said his proud dad.

Ronaldo has never revealed the identity of Cristiano Jnr’s mother.

“People speculate I was with this girl or another, or there was a surrogate mother,” he told chat show host Jonathan Ross. “I have never told anyone and never will.

“When Cristiano [Junior] is going to grow up, I am always going to say the truth to him because he deserves it, because he is my son, but I am not going to say because people want me to say.”

His unusual family dynamic also sees hime as a father to twins, daughter Eva and son Mateo, three, who were born via a surrogacy parent.

“Cristiano Ronaldo will not share any reason as to why he chose a surrogate mother, he is simply grateful that he now has twins,” a rep for the soccer star said in 2018.

Then just a month later, Ronaldo announced his model girlfriend, 26-year-old Georgina Rodriguez was pregnant with his fourth child, daughter Alana.
