It was reported that Aveiro had suffered an ischemic stroke, caused by a blood clot in the brain.
Ronaldo and Aveiro share a close bond with the latter often spotted on the pitch whenever the football superstar wins a trophy.
The 35-year-old got emotional speaking about his mother in an interview with Piers Morgan last year.
But Ronaldo also shared a joke about how worked up Aveiro can get whenever he is competing in a cup final or any big occasion.

“She is not allowed now to watch big games,” he told Morgan.
“I get friends to stay with her and she goes for walks around the house. She fainted two times in the stadium. She is nervous.
“She gets so nervous, I don’t understand why.
“It is impossible, I don’t have a father anymore and I don’t want to lose my mum, so I told her ‘you will not watch semi-finals or finals anymore’.”
