Cristiano Ronaldo has a huge heart. In 2013 he decided to do his bit to save the mangrove forests of Indonesia. He is now the ambassador for The Mangrove Care Forum. This organization is based in Bali and is working tirelessly to conserve the Indonesian Mangrove forests.
Ronaldo hopes that his actions will “inspire the movement to rescue the mangroves and help improve the environment.” Good on you, Ronaldo, you are an inspiration in and out of the field.
Kicks Like a Mule
It is hard to say precisely how fast the ball travels when it leaves his boot, but it's safe to say it's an almost inhumane speed! In a Documentary called Ronaldo, the star kicked a ball through three panes of glass.
One of the scientists on set said, “80mph of unadulterated speed”. This is fast even for a car. Watch out, critics — you wouldn't want to find yourself on the wrong side of his boot!
When Ronaldo isn’t signing huge endorsements, modeling, or kicking the ball around, he is likely to be with his beloved family. Ronaldo has six kids and is married to Georgina Rodriguez.
Georgina worked as a salesperson at a Gucci store in Madrid when the two met in 2016. A year later, Georgina had her first child with Ronaldo, and they officially became a blended family. By 2021 they were expecting a set of twins.
Ronaldo and Messi — Teammates
Wait, what? Yes. This was back in 2012 when the two teamed up during the 11 for a health initiative, which helps improve kids’ views toward disease. FIFA gathered eleven of the best footballers and convinced the two rivals, Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, to play on the same team.
This may be the first and the last time we see these two on the same team, but it was truly shocking and enjoyable for fans.
Ronaldo and Paris Hilton
Way back in 2009, Paris Hilton was helping Ronaldo celebrate his £94 million transfer to Real Madrid from Manchester United. The celebrations were at My House, a trendy Hollywood nightclub, and the photos that surfaced showed them getting super friendly!
On the rebound from Doug Reinhardt, the Hilton heiress was seen flirting heavily with the football star. When questioned, Paris said, “They were just getting to know each other.” Sure.
