Not only is the four-time Ballon d’Or winner making headlines over his rumored departure from Real Madrid, but today is his son’s birthday. And with Father’s Day taking place tomorrow, it’s safe to say Ronaldo is relishing in the joys of fatherhood.
The elder Ronaldo took to Instagram today to wish his son a happy birthday. The soccer star’s caption translates to, “Congratulations, father’s love. You’re becoming a man. Proud of you, we’re soon together. I love you.”
For fans looking to emulate Ronaldo’s off-the-pitch style, there are plenty of sneakers to choose from. The majority of his go-to shoes are retro models from sponsor Nike, but Ronaldo also has a penchant for designer shoes from the likes of Balenciaga.
