I wanted to be a young father – and I (am) – because I wanted to be able to follow him during his development as a person. As a man. That was always a dream of mine.
Obviously, Cristiano has been a big influence on me. I have learnt to be calmer, more cautious. I have learnt a lot about being a father.
Some kids never get to know their parents – neither father, nor mother. Having a father is good enough. I don’t care what other people say. It doesn’t bother me. People speculate that it was with this girl, or the other, or a surrogate mother. I’ve never told anyone, and never will.
When Cristiano is grown up, then I will talk to him.
I always thought, and I still think, that he will understand me.
