Cristiano Ronaldo Jr is one of the most famous kids on the planet.

The eldest child of one of the greatest footballers of all time, the nine-year-old has made headlines in recent times for his exploits on the pitch.

The youngster is a talented footballer who currently plays for Juventus’ youth team.

Back in October, it was revealed that Cristiano Jr had scored 58 goals and provided 18 assists in just 28 games.

The lad has had the luxury of training with a five-time Ballon d’Or winner in his back garden, so he’s bound to be a half-decent player when he grows up.

His dad is also the most followed person on Instagram, with a staggering 205 million followers.

He follows 441 accounts – the latest of which belongs to Cristiano Jr.

The youngster signed up to the photo-sharing platform on Monday and already has close to one million followers. Insane.

In fact, by the time you read this, he may have already broken the one million-mark.

Cristiano Jr has posted three times on his new account, @Minicristianoronaldo2010, the first of which is a video introducing himself in four different languages.

He says: “Hi guys. This is my new Instagram account. I hope you enjoy. Take care, bye.”

The video has already been viewed over three million times and earned a comment from his dad…

His next photo was a picture of himself and his siblings in a bath with his superstar father.

And he then posted a photo alongside his dad’s partner, Georgina Rodriguez, at the Milan Fashion Week…

If he achieves one million followers a day, he’ll be closing in on his dad’s Instagram follower tally before the end of the year,
