Football great Cristiano Ronaldo has a reason to celebrate. Wednesday (June 17, 2020) marked his eldest son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr's 10th birthday and the Juventus striker has been making sure that he manages to pass on the love.
The Portuguese star posted a birthday wish for his son, accompanied with a sweet selfie of the two. The picture featured Ronaldo donning his latest hairstyle of ruffled hair while Junior can be seen sporting several micro braids.
Nem quero acreditar que o meu menino já tem 10 anos! Como o tempo passou... e desde sempre foste motivo de orgulho do pai que tanto te ama.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) June 17, 2020
Muitos Parabéns, Filhote! Um dia Feliz! Amo-te muito! ???????? pic.twitter.com/Jq2jVB60zd
He wrote the caption in Portuguese, which meant, "I can't even believe that my boy is 10 years old! How time has passed ... and you have always been proud of the father who loves you so much. Congratulations, Puppy! A happy day! I love you so much!"
This sweet message came after Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.'s grandmother Dolores Aveiro had shared an emotional video montage of her pictures with her grandson. The proud granny also included a long caption along with it. The tune of Happy Birthday to you played in the background of the video.

Só Deus sabe a força extra que este meu neto me trás,só Deus sabe o porque da vinda dele à minha vida,eu encontro todos os dias sinais que ele já era destinado a nós antes mesmo de nascer,Dez anos se passaram desde a primeira vez que eu te peguei no colo,ainda de choro fraco e de olhinhos quase fechados,no meu colo te aninhaste e deste um novo sentido à minha vida,e naquele momento senti um amor que jamais poderei explicar ...que Deus te conceda muito anos meu amor da avó,que Deus te permita ser sempre esse menino meigo carinhoso humilde e uma das razões da minha vida ... feliz aniversário amor da vida da avó...
She wrote on Instagram, "Only God knows the extra strength that my grandson brings me. God only knows why he came into my life. Every day I find signs that he was destined for us even before he was born. Ten years have passed since the first time I held you. Still with a weak cry and almost closed eyes, you nestled in my lap and gave a new meaning to my life. At that moment I felt a love that I will never be able to explain".
She concluded the post by saying, "May God grant you many years my love for your grandmother, may God allow you to always be that sweet, humble, loving boy and one of the reasons for my life ... Happy birthday, love for your grandmother's life".
