Cristiano Ronaldo spent Christmas in Miami so he could expand his family, it was sensationally claimed today.

The Real Madrid star left his five-year-old son Cristiano Jr with his mum Dolores in Portugal so he could deal with arrangements for a sibling for the youngster, a popular Portuguese TV presenter claimed.

The 30-year-old spoke of his desire to have ‘five or six’ little Cristianos in a recent magazine interview.

He told FHM magazine: ‘I think I have good conditions to have many kids so I want this. Let’s find the right woman.’

He also gushed about his five-year-old, said to have been born in a private clinic in the US with the collaboration of two Mexican surrogate mums.

Ronaldo’s mum revealed in her approved biography she had picked up Cristiano Jr, known affectionately as Cristianinho – ‘little Cristiano’, from a private hospital in Florida.

Ronaldo’s mum revealed in her approved biography she had picked up Cristiano Jr, known affectionately as Cristianinho – ‘little Cristiano’, from a private hospital in Florida.

Cristiano was pictured getting VIP treatment at a basketball match and relaxing bare-chested round his hotel pool while his son stayed with his grandmother more than 3,800 miles away.

Dolores, who this year opened her own Twitter and Instagram pages, posted a string of pictures of her surrounded by her grandchildren including Cristianinho over Christmas in her native Madeira.

The scenes contrasted with the photos Cristiano posted online last Christmas from Dubai, where he relaxed with his son and ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk and her family before their New Year break-up.

Eunice Cristina Morais de Carvalho, a popular TV presenter known by her artistic name of Maya, told Portuguese station CMTV: ‘Only a very strong reason led Cristiano Ronaldo to spend Christmas away from Cristianinho.

‘Last Christmas he wasn’t with his mum or his brother or sisters because he spent it with Irina and Irina’s mum and sister but Cristianinho was with him.

‘This year he spent Christmas alone in Miami.’

Turning to colleagues she added: ‘Doesn’t Miami ring bells with anyone? Where’s Cristianinho from? Cristianinho comes from Miami as everyone knows.

‘Cristiano has repeatedly said he wants another child. Cristiano went to Miami to make arrangements for that second child.’

Ronaldo stunned the world in July 2010 by announcing on Twitter and Facebook he had become a father.

Dolores, 60, revealed in her July 2014 approved biography called ‘Mother Courage’ she had picked the child up from an unnamed private hospital in Florida while her son was playing the 2010 World Cup in south Africa.

Speaking of the moment Cristiano told her he would be a father, she added: ‘I’m going to have a child and I want you to be the one to help me educate him and give him love, as you’ve always done with me and my brothers and sisters.

‘The mother of the baby will never be known.’

Mum-of-four Dolores, whose alcoholic husband Dinis died of liver disease in September 2005, now lives near to her son on an VIP estate in Madrid where Gareth Bale also has a home so she can help raise Cristianinho as he is affectionately known.

Cristiano’s family has always refused to discuss whether his son was born to a surrogate mum.

Maria Manuela Rodrigues, a former nanny to Cristianinho, revealed four years ago Cristiano’s sister Katia had told her he had two Mexican mums.

The carer, who worked at Katia’s house in Moita near Lisbon for 10 months, told leading Portuguese tabloid Correio da Manha in August 2011: ‘Once I saw a newspaper article saying the child’s mother wanted him back.

Katia said: ‘That’s a lie, because the mum is Mexican and she didn’t even see if it was a boy or a girl, because she was a surrogate mum’ adding that she told her Cristianinho was the ‘child of two mums.’

‘She even told me the child had two mums, that the eggs were from one and another carried and gave birth to the child. And that both were Mexican.’

She added: ‘The child was born in a private clinic and the mother didn’t even see him, because she was covered up. The baby was born and she doesn’t know anything about him.’

The Real Madrid striker took legal action over the article, claiming the newspaper had intruded into his private life.

A court in Lisbon ruled in favour of the footballer and fined a newspaper exec, the former nanny and the two journalists who wrote the story.

An appeal against the decision is understood to be ongoing.

Cristiano has never taken action over other stories about his son’s mum which are given less credence in Portugal, including one that claimed she was a penniless American waitress he paid £10 million to to keep her identity secret and hand the baby over to his family after a one-night stand.

The July 2010 Sunday Mirror report said he met her in a Los Angeles restaurant during a trip to the US in 2009, charming her with the line: ‘Me, you **** ****’.

Speaking in July last year, Cristiano’s older sister Elma admitted: ‘Cristianinho sometimes asks about his mum.

‘Once we told him that she was in Heaven, but my brother and my mum didn’t like that and asked us not to repeat it.

‘We say now that his mum went travelling. He goes silent, forgets about it and doesn’t ask anymore.’

Cristiano is expected to see in the New Year in Marrakech with his kick boxer friend Badr Hari and Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema.

A Moroccan newspaper reported he has reserved a £2,400-a-night suite at luxury hotel The Pearl Marrakech.

The footballer recently acquired his own private jet, a £13.5 million Gulfstream G200, which he is said to use regularly to travel to Morocco to see Badr, 31.
