Mr dos Santos is famous as a celebrity father. He is the father of Brazilian football ace Antony.
Born Antony Matheus dos Santos, he plays as a winger for Manchester United and the Brazil national team.
His divorce from his wife was the hardest moment for Antony
Santos was married to his wife, Cremilda Prudencio. Initially, their life was not easy.
Santos worked as a locksmith while his wife worked at a clothes and shoe shop close to their house.
From their marriage union, they welcomed their three children, including Antony, the youngest of three.
They raised their three children in Osasco, Sao Paulo, where there was always a fear of getting exposed to drugs, guns, and other bad kinds of stuff.
Antony, in an interview, recalled suffering when the police invaded his home, suspecting that there was something there since the place where they resided was close to where drugs were sold.
He credits his family for showing him the right path to follow and not to get distracted by bad kinds of stuff.
He always had strength from his family, who always taught him to stay humble.
When Antony was asked what advice he would give to young Antony decades ago, he replied by saying he would ask himself to have patience.
According to him, he was very hopeless at the time and suffered a lot at the time. It was close to the time when his parents were getting divorced.
It was the hardest moment of his life. He was just a boy at the time, and since there was no other room, he slept in his parent’s bedroom.
He missed that a lot. He says he would ask for patience with his younger self if he could go back in time because tomorrow belongs only to God.
He quit smoking after 38 years
Santos smoked for 38 years before he quit smoking in 2014.
On the occasion of national no smoking day, Antony took his Instagram to share that his father is a true example for him who was always a mirror to him and was fundamental to helping in his career path.
He wrote his father after 38 years of smoking quit smoking, understanding the various problems that his habit causes to the health of the Brazilian and Worldwide population.
About Antony’s upbringing
Antony and his siblings had a tough upbringing growing up in the middle of Favela, where drug dealers were just twenty yards away from their house.
There were moments when Antony and his siblings would cry and hug each other, thinking about their lives.
There were times when they would be bailing water out of their flooded house in the middle of the night, but the smile on their faces never faded away.
Antony always loved football and dreamt of becoming a professional footballer.
His elder brother was always there supporting him and helping him in developing his skills. Antony didn’t have football boots.
They were always borrowed because he didn’t have the means to buy them.
His mom, who worked in a clothes and shoe shop, used to borrow boots for Antony.
He never had Plan B, and it was always Plan A which was to become a professional. Today he is living his dream.
Antony wants to set an example for his son
Antony is a married man. He is married to his wife, Rosilene. Antony was just 19 when he became a father. His son with Rosilene was born in 2019.
According to Antony, becoming a parent at such a young age worried him as he had several questions floating in his mind.
He was worried about how he was going to teach his son and how he was going to take care of him with himself being quite young.
But now, he says having his son by his side is everything to him, and he wants to set an example for him.
He added that he thinks about his son before doing anything, and everything he will do will be for him.
