Who is Maria Dolores, Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother?

Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro and Ronaldo’s father Jose diniz Aveiro raised the footballer and his siblings in the Funchal parish of Santo Antonio.

But during the documentary film titled Ronaldo, she confessed to considering having an abortion when she was pregnant with him.

In the film, she says, “It’s a child I wanted to abort. God didn’t want that to happen, and I was blessed because of it, and God didn’t punish me.

“Sometimes Ronaldo laughs at me and says ‘You didn’t want me to be born. But now you see I’m here to help you all.’ Well, sometimes we laugh about it.”

Dolores tried to stay away from the public eye until she created social media profiles a few years ago.

She now regularly updates her followers with cute snaps of herself and her family.

Her Instagram account @doloresaveiroofficial has 2.9 million followers.

In 2007, Dolores was diagnosed with breast cancer.

More than a decade later, the mother-of-four was left distraught when she found out the cancer she once beat had returned in 2019.

A year later, Dolores was admitted to hospital again after suffering a stroke.

During his periods of poor health, Ronaldo was always at his bedside.

In November 2022, the Portuguese star shocked the world when he lifted the lid on his situation at Old Trafford in an explosive interview with The Sun’s Piers Morgan.

Following her son’s interview, Maria remained silent and let her daughters Katia and Elma attack her critics on social media.

However, after reports of Manchester United’s plan to cut all ties with the footballer, the 67-year-old made her feelings clear.

Showing her support for her son, Maria responded to an open letter from journalist and writer Luis Osorio which included a cutting description from United manager Erik ten Hag.

“As for the Dutchman who has managed you for the past few months, I just want to laugh.

“How can you compare what you are to a miserable footnote in football history!”

He also echoed a rude outburst from Alberto Joao Jardim, the former president of Madeira where Cristiano is from to add: “As Alberto Joao Jardim says, tell him to ‘f*** off’.

Breaking her silence on the matter, Ronaldo’s mother responded to the post by posting a link to Osorio’s Instagram alongside a cheering emoji.

How many siblings does Cristiano Ronaldo have?

Cristiano Ronaldo has two older sisters, Elma and Lilianna Catia, and a brother named Hugo.

He grew up in a poor, Catholic home, sharing a room with his siblings.

Ronaldo has spoken out about his lack of relationship with his father, who died of liver disease at the age of 53.

Dolores now lives very closely with the footballer, his partner Georgina Rodriguez and his five children.

What did Maria Dolores do for a living?

Ronaldo’s mother spends much of her time raising her grandchildren.

She publishes many photos on social networks showing her taking care of children.

You can follow her on Instagram @doloresaveiroofficial.

Prior to her new lifestyle, Dolores owned a restaurant in Brazil named Casa Aveiro.

However, in 2020, they reluctantly informed their customers that the business would close for the last time, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
