Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly facing pressure from the mother of his 6-month-old son to give her access to the child. Cristiano, 25, who shocked the world in June when he revealed he had become a father, reportedly paid the 20-year-old British student £10 million ($15.6 million) to remain silent and grant him “exclusive guardianship.” Now the woman regrets her decision to hand over the baby and is willing to pay back all of the money in order to be a part of the baby boy’s life.

A source tells the Sunday Mirror that the woman has gone back on her agreement to stay out of contact with Cristiano and has been calling him late at night. “She cried down the phone to him and pleads with him.”  The woman is so depressed about giving up the child — who was conceived during a one-night stand after she met the soccer star in a London nightclub — that she has dropped out of school. In the contract drawn up by his lawyer, she was prevented from discussing the situation with anyone, including her family and friends. “He shouldn’t even be in contact with her but they have got into a twisted sort of routine,” the source adds. “She feels like she has sold her soul. She has this millionaire lifestyle but can never tell her friends and family the truth about what has happened and that makes her feel incredibly lonely.”

But Cristiano doesn’t feel bad for the woman, considering a friend of the Portuguese footballer says, “As far as he is concerned it was her choice, her decision.” The blue-eyed, curly brown-haired baby, who was first pictured on December 8 at his father’s Real Madrid game, is being raised by Cristiano’s mother, Dolores, 55, and sisters Elma and Liliana Catia.

“Somehow the child’s mother has managed to get in touch with him and is hounding him to see the baby,” a friend adds. “She will tell him about the millionaire’s life she is now leading, with trips to exclusive London nightclubs. Her friends think she is a lottery winner and that’s exactly how she’s been behaving. But she is finding out that nothing will take the place of seeing her own child grow up. If they carry on talking like this she will only get more and more hurt.” What do you think about this situation? Should Cristiano allow the mother of his child to have access to her son?
