“I was very excited for him to see where I grew up,” he told TVI.
“He went up with me and there were still some of the same people who lived there at the time.
“I got excited, if I’m honest, because I didn’t expect to see those people, and that touched me a little bit.”
Ronaldo went on to say that Cristiano Jr, who is used to a more luxurious lifestyle, was surprised by the size of his father’s former bedroom.
“My son turned to me and said, ‘Dad. Did you live here?’ He couldn’t believe it.”
