Dolores was wedded to José Dinis Pereira Aveiro who was a poor municipality gardener living in Santo António, a neighbourhood of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. She herself worked as a cook and cleaning lady. The couple already had three kids, a son and two daughters, when she found out she was pregnant with her fourth child, Cristiano. At this point, their financial condition was such that Dolores considered aborting the fourth baby. While talking about this in an approved biography, Dolores revealed further after her doctor had refused to help her with her plan to drop her 4th child, she had drunk warm beer and run till she dropped. But, the baby survived. and now, the mother-son duo laugh about the past. She is thankful that she did not take the decision, and had a son whom she supported in every way.

As the wealthiest athlete today, Ronaldo has changed the life of his mother. He has put an end to her life as a domestic help, and given her everything from a beautiful house to live in to a Porsche for her birthday. But, that doesn’t mean everything has been a bed of roses for her since Ronaldo entered the world of international soccer and earned instant fame, success and wealth.
Dolores’s husband was an alcoholic, and in 2005, she became a widow after his liver failed because of his heavy alcohol intake. While Ronaldo had tried very hard to send him to rehab and help him overcome his affinity to alcohol, Jose lost to his desire for the poison drink, and the family lost him on 6th September 2005. Dolores was 50 at that time.
That was not the last leg of her misery. She struggled with breast cancer around 2007, and eventually, her lump was removed. She went through radiotherapy, and she still takes anti-cancer medicines. This harmed the career of Ronaldo, but eventually, the mother-son duo beat this crisis, too!

Trouble seems to love her company, and find her even in the simplest of situations. In June 2015, she was stopped by Civil Guard officers at the Madrid Airport, and confiscated 45,000 Euros and stopped her from leaving the country with such a big fortune in her hand luggage, without declaring the cash, or being able to prove its origin. However, it was declared that this was an administrative error, rather than a crime; sources close to her said that she was ignorant of the legislation on cash limits and had no “other intentions.”
Ronaldo never stopped caring for his mother. He wants her to step out with bodyguards to protect her. He says that one of the reasons he parted ways with his long-term girlfriend Irina Shayk is because she did not feel the need to attend Dolores’ 60th birthday. Dolores never found Irina a fitting partner for her son, because taking care of Ronaldo’s eldest son like a mother was never appealing to her.
