Having already spent several weeks on a steamy holiday in Sardinia, Ronaldo is now recuperating in Lisbon while the 25-year-old kisses him better.
And the lucky Manchester United star, 23, is set earn a cool £2million in sick-pay while he is on the mend.
Spanish vixen Nereida is also hobbling after slipping on her high heels but is no doubt making the Premiere League footballer her priority.
And this is not surprising considering the beauty told a friend she is keen to tie the knot.
So in love: The star with girlfriend Nereida on holiday in Sardinia prior to his operation
A source said to The Sun in May: 'She was boasting they are getting married but haven’t set a date yet.
'She kept showing pictures of them together and going on about what a great wedding she is planning. She said she would make a beautiful bride.'
Unluckily for Nereida, walking up the aisle is probably the last thing on Ronaldo's mind.
The Portuguese is determined to transfer for Real Madrid but Manchester United bosses are blocking the move.
A bitter £80million struggle between the two clubs has ensued.
But with a 12-week love-in ahead of him, it's needless to say the footballer will definitely find something to distract him from the troubles in England.
If you will count all the girls who got involved with him since last year, you’ll discover that they are more than his career goals. For this year (month?) Cristiano Ronaldo’s girfriend has the name of Olivia Saunders. An 18-year old college student at University of Manchester. She’s reportedly taking up AB in Management in Leasure. The Fifa World Player of the Year awardee Cristiano has been seeing going out with Olivia around town.
Olivia is the latest Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend after Gemma Atkinson, Nereida Gallardo and Alonya Haynes among many others.

The Manchester United winker looked like Mr Clean when he SKIPPED the team's notorious Christmas party that ended in roasting and rape allegations.
But the Portuguese winger made up for lost time when he slipped away to Italy after United's FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Sunday [January 6] —and made a beeline for a seedy dive in Rome's red light district.
A source at the strip joint told us: "Ronaldo and a pal arranged for two girls to go to his hotel after leaving the club.
The star's night of disgrace began with his visit to Rome's notorious Divafutura Channel club. Inside the dimly-lit basement punters are hustled to buy hostesses £120 bottles of champagne as brazen performers-who charge £35 for private lapdances—strip on a podium.A bottle of lager costs £16— small beer to £100,000-a-week Ronaldo, 22. The star breezed in, ordered bubbly and spent about an hour boozing with a pal before choosing two hostesses to visit him at the nearby five-star Hilton.
Ronaldo's latest antics are certain to land him in double trouble—first with boss Sir Alex, already livid about his club's reputation being dragged through the mud, and second with his stunning new girlfriend TV presenter Carolina Patrocinio, 20 (pictured right).
But Fergie would possibly forgive Ronaldo, as the footballer had his first ever hat-trick (see the highlight video below,) during the weekend's 6-0 match against Newcastle
