The mystery surrounding who exactly is the mother of Cristiano Ronaldo's baby (Cristiano Ronaldo Junior) took a fresh turn today, when Ronny's sister told the sun that the mother passed away some months ago.

Speaking to the tabloid English newspaper, Katia said "There is no woman calling him. There is no mother, no telephone calls, nothing. His mother died. The baby doesn't have a mother."

"The boy is ours. I'm not going to say how he arrived with us. But I guarantee he's my brother's son, my nephew, from our blood," she added. "His mother is my mother, who is the person who is with him 24 hours a day."
