CRISTIANO RONALDO’S mum has praised ‘supportive’ Georgina Rodriguez and rubbished rumours of a rift between the two.
Dolores Aveiro also revealed she lost her sense of smell and taste after a stroke last year – but insists her love of football remains unaffected.
Discussing her relationship with Georgina on Sporting Lisbon’s ADN de Leao podcast, Dolores, 66, said: “Yes, yes, she’s a good girl.
“Cristiano is an exemplary father but he has people to help.
“The children have nannies and they have staff who do a lot of things. Four kids are a lot of work.
“Georgina is a great support to Cristiano, no doubt about it.”
Rumours of a rift between the two dominated the Portuguese press last year after Dolores allegedly unfollowed Georgina, 27, on Instagram.
Ronaldo’s mum slammed these speculative reports at the time and continues to support for her beloved son and his partner.

The trio recently enjoyed a meal together in Manchester after Dolores travelled to the UK to watch her son’s Man Utd return.
Dolores has also revealed she is yet to make a full recovery from the stroke she suffered in March 2020 following her battle with breast cancer.
She was rushed to hospital for a life-saving op following the stroke, with Ronaldo, 36, flying to see her from his then home in Italy.
Dolores added: “I don’t move my arm well, and as for speech, I stutter a lot. I notice my tongue sticking.
“I lost my sense of smell and taste. I can’t smell anything or taste it. Little by little I will recover, God willing.”
But the football fan insisted her love for the game hasn’t diminished and wants Ronaldo to finish his career at boyhood club Sporting Lisbon.
She continued: “I adore football. If you invite me to dinner and there’s a match on, I won’t go to eat and and I’ll stay in and watch the game instead.
“Even if Ronaldo’s not playing, I’m always watching.
“I’ve already asked him if he wants to be a coach when he stops playing. He told me he wants to enjoy life. He’ll play until he’s 40.”
