When do you know you have arrived? You have your own fragrance, of course. In 2017 Ronaldo released his scent named CR7 Origins. French perfumer Pierre Gueros composed this symphony of smells.
Apparently, it is inspired by the notes of his birthplace and represents the true essence of the man. Ronaldo has revealed that it is his secret weapon, and the cologne gives him confidence. There you have it, folks — all of that in one small bottle.
One Date With Gemma Atkinson
Gemma Atkinson of Hollyoaks fame went on a single date with Ronaldo. You may think that the date would entail limousines, diamond-encrusted roses, and a candlelit gourmet dinner. Not so fast!
It wasn’t nearly as spectacular or as steamy as you’d imagine. Apparently, the two of them went back to her place, drank tea, and watched Only Fools and Horses. Or maybe this is just what they’d like us to believe.
Ronaldo and Irina Shayk started dating after they met on an Armani Exchange advert set back in 2010. The two were seen on a yacht together, and there were rumors of a valentine's day engagement. So why did they break up?
There are a ton of rumors around Ronaldo's fling with the supermodel. One of which is that Shayk didn’t get along with Ronaldo’s dear mother. But this has been neither confirmed nor denied by Ronaldo.
Some nicknames just stick. Crybaby sure has. But another lesser-known nickname of Ronaldo's is Abelhinder or Little bee. This goes back to his childhood — back when he’d buzz around the pitches of Madeira.
He was relatively small but super-fast, just like a little bee. He still buzzes around at lightning speed as a professional footballer, although he’s all grown up now, so “Little” doesn’t stick anymore. We do think that he still stings like a bee on the field.
Ronaldo has a museum dedicated to him. Museu CR7 is in Madeira, Portugal features a bronze statue and a few more life-like mannequins. The museum was his brother Hugo’s idea.
Hugo suggested it as a place for all his trophies to be displayed. Why not? There are a lot of them, and it beats having them scattered around. A plaque near the bronze statue says “Melhor Jogador Do Mundo,” which means “Best Player in the World.”
