Cristiano Ronaldo has thanked fans for showering his family with support during their time of grief. A few weeks ago, the athlete made a heartbreaking announcement together with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodríguez, that they are mourning the loss of their newborn son. Thankfully, their baby girl survived.
Ronaldo Is Thankful for Having a Reason to Stay Strong
“Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.”
The soccer star continued by thanking their doctors and nurses for their care and support. Cristiano Ronaldo is also a dad to four other children; the 4-year-old twins Eva Maria and Mateo, 4-year-old Alana Martina, and 11-year-old Cristiano Jr. On October 28, 2021, the athlete announced that he and his girlfriend were expecting twins, alongside a photo of the couple laying in bed while holding up ultrasound photos.
The 1st Picture of the Newborn Baby Girl
Just days after the heartwrenching announcement, Cristiano Ronaldo shared a photo of his newborn daughter. The picture portrays the Manchester United forward and his longtime partner, Georgina Rodriguez, smiling as they are sitting at home with all their children. The soccer star is seen holding the couple’s newborn daughter in his arms.
In the caption, Ronaldo expressed his gratitude for his fans and everyone showing support during the recent tragic events. He also added:
“Now it’s time to be grateful for the life that we’ve just welcomed into this world.”
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Return to Manchester
The soccer athlete transferred from Juventus to Manchester United, which was publicly announced in August 2021. Ronaldo acknowledged that he’s departing from an “amazing club,” he has given his heart and soul to Juventus and will always love the city of Turin. This is not the first time the famous forward has played with Manchester United. Ronaldo was with the English club from 2003 to 2009, where he won three league titles and one Champions League. Despite his career, Cristiano Ronaldo makes sure he spends time with his family, making it clear that they are the most important thing in his life.
The world we live in today is dynamic. Social media and crypto seemed to have democratized the two things that remained elusive: fame and money. Right now, college basketball is evolving with an impression unprecedented before, and the person leading the charge? Percy Miller, aka Master P. How, you may ask? Let’s find out.
Depending on Daddy dear
Back in the day, Master P was a low-level basketball player and had a college scholarship. Today, his son, Hercy Miller, is considered a three-star guard and has received interest from solid basketball college programs before settling for Tennessee. But here’s what matters: He managed to get a $2.5 million endorsement deal because of his dad.
One can argue that not every athlete would have a father to help them cut a deal. Not everyone is that that lucky. However, that does not take away anything from the deal’s significance, especially since Miller junior will attend an HBCU.
Is it a fair world?
The question now is simple: If this is the new norm for college athletes, what kind of value would players like Chet Holmgren and Emoni Bates draw? It hardly seems fair for players who are talented but lack the connections. Though both of them have picked Gonzaga and Michigan state respectively, now their glass-ceiling for income may be shattered. Most of the international leagues and the G-League will have to gasp for cash to compete with that.
Just ferry on the thought-train a little more and imagine what the NCAA tournament was worth to Baylor’s Johnny Juzang and Davion Mitchell. Don’t just stop at their possible NIL incomes. How have their profiles changed over the past few months of performance? The bottom line is, bringing NCAA fame and NIL rights together will bring forth many lucrative opportunities for athletes.
