Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘Being a father has changed me completely’

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed how profoundly he has been changed by being a father and says “it’s taught me things about love that I never knew existed”.

Ronaldo, who has three children, also opened up about his eldest son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr’s love for football in an interview with Portuguese magazine Hola.

On being a dad, Ronaldo said: “Being a father is a unique and personal journey, something that has changed me completely.

“It’s taught me things about love that I never knew existed.

“It has softened me and given me a different perspective on what is really important in my life.

“I can’t wait to be a dad again [Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child]. Being a father and seeing my family grow is, without doubt, the greatest privilege I’ve had.

“Spending time with them, being by their side, smiling and laughing with them. They’ve brought a lot of happiness and joy to my life.”

On his son Cristiano, 7, Ronaldo said: “He loves football and he plays all the time. Often it’s difficult to get him to sit down and have dinner because he’s always outside kicking a football.

“I suppose it’s in his blood

“He’s a very affectionate boy, attentive, friendly, respectful and very open with people. Everyone who meets him is surprised at how confident he is. That makes me feel very proud as a dad.”

Ronaldo is currently working on his fitness after being given a rest by Portugal manager Fernando Santos and left out of the side’s forthcoming friendlies against Saudi Arabia and the USA.

The 32-year-old was named footballer of the year at the Best FIFA Football Awards last month, but he has endured a mixed start to the season and scored just one goal in seven La Liga matches.

Dangote Carried Baby Davido Home After His Christening – Aig-Imoukhuede Reveals

Former president of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, has revealed that Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote “carried baby Davido home” after he was christened.

The former Access Bank group managing director disclosed this to Mike Awoyinfa, a veteran journalist writing Dangote’s biography in an upcoming ‘Giants of Africa’ series.

According to Awoyinfa, Aig-Imoukhuede said the singer’s father Adedeji Adeleke has been a close friend of Dangote for several years.

Explaining Aig-Imoukhuede’s description of Dangote’s fear of God, he wrote:

“With Imoukhuede, you can never run short of anecdotes. He remembers a day he was travelling with Dangote to Abuja. He needed to see his pastor urgently but found himself acting like Hamlet: to see or not to see.

Dangote instantly waded in, insisting: “you must see your pastor!” He even followed him to church, resulting in getting to Abuja very late.

“He also recalls an incident many years ago in Atlanta, USA, when Dangote had to go to church and was the one who carried the baby Davido home after his christening. Today, Davido is an award-winning pop star and a household name.

“That was why when Imoukhuede was hosting a 60th birthday bash for Dangote in his spacious Ikoyi office, he invited Davido to perform on that joyous night of dancing that brought together Dangote’s inner caucus and close friends like Davido’s father, the billionaire Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, the former Ogun State governor Aremo Segun Osoba, the former governor of Edo State Adams Oshiomole, the present governor of Edo State Godwin Obaseki, the former Cross Rivers State governor Donald Duke, the Nigerian billionaire Femi Otedola and many other Dangote insiders.”

The Kind Of Women Men Should Run Away From

1. When you meet a girl who doesn’t listen to your advice and prefers to live the way she wants. It’s her life, of course. Let’s her enjoy it. RUN!!

2. When she says she loves you but cannot prove it in actions and cannot sacrifice when the need arises. RUN!!

3. When you meet a lady who is excessively materialistic and doesn’t even think about how to add value to herself beyond making up, buying the latest phones, clothes and shoes. If she spends unnecessarily without understanding the value of money and what it takes to make a living. RUN!!

4. When you meet a girl who’s from a poor background but is maintaining a lifestyle of a girl from a super-rich home without a day job. RUN!!

5. When she says she can only submit to you after you both are married. Submission to a man is a reflection of a humble heart. If she isn’t humble enough to submit before marriage, she won’t be after marriage. RUN!!

6. If she has inordinate desires which are far beyond her reach and then relies on collecting monies from men to meet those needs. Trust me, somehow, she will have to reciprocate. If she’s using what “she has” to “get what she wants.” If she’s not content with what her parents or guardians or you are providing for her. RUN!!

7. If she’s so fixated on and addicted to social media which could be her only way of being relevant. If she’s so influenced by the social media and tries to keep up with everything happening in the social media: latest this and latest that. RUN!!

A woman should strive to add value to herself and, in extension, add value to her family. If she’s more of a headache than happiness, then she’s not for you.

No woman should use her circumstance as an excuse to do terrible things. We all have choices to make no matter how bad things become.
