Cristiano Ronaldo: Still Pretty Chill About His Son’s Love for Messi

By now, it’s been well-documented that Cristiano Ronaldo’s son, CristiRo Jr., is team Lionel Messi. So recently, when Ronaldo was a guest on The Jonathan Ross show, he was asked how he would react if his son got a Messi tattoo, and he was pretty supportive about it.

“No problem,” Ronaldo said. “If he [does] that, it’s because he’s smart. He knows [the] good players.” Actually, this is super sweet. And if Ronaldo starts to feel bad that his son prefers Messi over him, then he can at least be consoled by the fact that Wayne Rooney’s son was rocking a fake Ronaldo tattoo earlier this year.
