In an interview, a reporter asked the soccer superstar, "Why is your mom still living with you? Why don't you build her a house?"

This was his response:

"My mother reared me up by sacrificing her life for me. She went to bed hungry to feed me. We had no money. She worked 7 days a week and worked nights as a cleaner to buy me a pair of football boots so I could play.

My whole success is dedicated to her.

And as long as she lives, she will always have everything I can give her. She is my sanctuary and my greatest gift."

It's clear that Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro has been a major influence in her son's life and his success.

On her birthday, Ronaldo wrote: "Happy birthday to the best mother in the world, a warrior who always taught me not to give up, the best grandmother my children could ever dream of having. I love you so much, my mother! Kiss!"

Ronaldo's sister, Katia, filmed the moment that Dolores read his birthday message.

Katia wrote: "I wanted to put a picture but luckily I recorded this moment that portrays this mother we have (she was reading her son's post here @cristiano) she is our strength she is love in person the love she planted in the hearts of all of us, she with her way half strong half fragile half brute half affectionate made her story in us, thank you mom for being our mother, who God give you more health and more years of life so that there are still more moments like this where love is sovereign and where only he matters."
