Few of the things that our parents dream for us is for us to finish our studies, to have an amazing job to support ourselves, and when everything else is settled, they would wish we’d find a wonderful person we could share our lives with. And even when we were younger, when we think about having a family in the future, we always think of having at least one boy and one girl in the family. That has become most people notion of a complete family, but as we grow older we realized things don’t often work for us that way.
Just like this family from Brazil, who have been trying for a girl in almost 20-years but for the past years have only managed to add more boys in the family.
Ireneu Cruz and wife, Jucicleide Silva had 13 sons! They vowed for almost 20 years to at least have a daughter but, has never had one. The age of their children ranges from 1 month- 18 years old, and they revealed they still won’t stop trying until they finally get a girl.
When Silva was pregnant with their first child, both had an agreement that dad would name all the boys while mom will name all the girls.
And after 13 pregnancies, Cruz had all the chances to christened their children. Thus, he named all the boys from famous football players, whose names all started in letter- R.
The family currently lives in Concei ao de Coit and when Silva was pregnant with the 13th child, they thought it was going to be a game-changer but it was instead announce to be yet again,a baby boy.
As to why he named his children with football players’ name, Cruz answered;
“All the best footballers seemed to have a name beginning with R, so as more and more boys came along, I decided to celebrate South American football by naming my sons after the players I liked.”
The family’s newest addition has been christened Ronaldo after the former Brazil star.
Little Ronaldo joins brothers Robson (18), Reinan (17), Rauan (15), Rubens (14), Rivaldo (13), Ruan (12), Ramon (10), Rincon (9), Riquelme (7), Ramires (5), Railson (3) and Rafael (2).
Cruz dreams that may one of his children live up to their name and become a famous football player in the future.
He added: “It would be amazing if one of our boys ended up playing for Brazil.”
Cruz also shared that his kid play football with the village football players sometimes, while he acts as the referee.
“They are all good footballers particularly Robson and Rauan who are our star strikers.
“The exception is Reinan who prefers chasing girls.”
Meanwhile Silva, shared that even if they didn’t have much they always make sure nobody ever gets hungry in the family.
She also added, that she still looks forward to having a baby girl someday.
“It would be wonderful to be able to choose her name and to finally hold up the red card to my husband.”
