Cristiano Ronaldo has full custody of his mini-me son Cristiano

The Real Madrid player occasionally brings his son to sporting events, with the most recent sighting taking place earlier this month in Madrid. Cristiano was presented with the Golden Boot award for the third time ever, and brought little Cristiano and his mother Dolores Aveiro to the celebratory affair. The football star became a dad for the first time in June 2010, after his son was born in the United States. At the time Cristiano, who has full custody of the boy, never revealed the identity of his son's mother. The past month has been full of celebrations for the athlete, who was also recently named La Liga player of the year.

Cristiano has been working hard off the pitch too, and on Monday launched his new CR7 Shirts collection globally. His eponymous brand launched one year ago, starting with underwear and socks, and Cristiano has expanded into other men's wardrobe staples. "Part of my belief is always being the best that you can be," said Cristiano of the new collection. "The perfect fitting shirt gives a man the confidence to become the best version of himself possible. "For me, a strong foundation is the most important thing throughout every area of my life. In my sporting life, a strong foundation enables me to perform at my very best and I apply the same principle to my personal life, business life and the way I dress. "Dressing well gives me confidence to be the best that I can be and underwear with a great fit and modern, stylish shirts are the starting point of every look."
