A few moths ago, I saw a comment on a blog article that questioned the rational for celebrity men to get married when there is a 90% chance you will end up loosing both half of your income and your children.
I am afraid that I might have to agree with the logic especially as it pertains to rich male celebrities. Take the case of Tiger Woods where his wife of 6 years is reported to have earned 100 million dollars in settlement + child support. Yes, she will go with the children and he will pay for their upkeep.
It seems the celebrity men were helpless to this kind of “ransom marriages”. Sooner or later they had to give up half of their life earning and there children if they every wanted to have a resemblance of a normal marriage.
Well, Cristiano Ronaldo has just hacked the system.
Since hunters have learnt to shoot without missing, birds have learnt to fly without perching.
In case you have not heard, the old boy of Old Trafford just had a son (yes, he is a flamboyant but coded man). and the statement announcing the child’s birth reads.
I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.
The summary of what I think happened is this, my man just purchased himself a mother to give birth to his child. This does not come with the added strings of loosing the child in the future along with half his income. His mother will take care of the boy in his early years so we can be sure little Ronaldo is in good hands.
What is the big deal you might say, after all MJ did same. Well, this is the first time a “normal celebrity” dude has gone this route. I sadly see this becoming a trend. It is simply safer.
What does his present girlfriend think?
She was initially devastated by the news but has now agreed to stand by Ronaldo and help him raise the child.
PS: I do not normally blog about celebrity stories but this “aha moment” is just too big to ignore. We might just be witnessing the beginning of a sad but necessary trend here of male celebrities hacking a family together.
