In her recent Instagram stories, spotted by Sports Brief, the 39-year-old was seen tenderly 'babysitting' her son following his intense performance in the El Clasico showdown against FC Barcelona on Sunday, April 20.

In the photo, Rodrygo, who didn't find the back of the net in Real Madrid's 3-2 victory over their arch-rivals, was peacefully sleeping on a pillow, dressed in black attire to match his mother.

Meanwhile, his devoted mother, showing signs of fatigue, lovingly watched over him.

Who is Rodrygo de Goes' mother?

Denise de Goes is renowned as the mother of Rodrygo, a talented footballer who plays for Real Madrid and the Brazilian national team.

She is happily married to her childhood sweetheart, Eric de Goes, with whom she began a relationship during their high school years, according to Vox Hour.

Becoming parents at a young age, Denise gave birth to Rodrygo when she was just 15 years old, while Eric was 16.

Their family grew over the years, and 17 years after Rodrygo's birth, they welcomed their second child, a daughter named Ana Julya de Goes, when Denise was in her early 30s.

Rodrygo reacts to Mbappe's potential arrival

Meanwhile, Rodrygo responded confidently about Kylian Mbappe, his potential arrival, and the implications on his playing time at Real Madrid, as reported by Sports Brief.

Despite speculation that the Brazilian might be benched to accommodate the arrival of the France captain, Rodrygo seemed unfazed by the prospect of reduced playing time.
