Antony’s parents are Mr dos Santos (father) and Cremilda Prudencio (mother).
The Brazilian starlet has his upbringing from a very humble family. Truly, it behooves us to commend his parents – Cremilda Prudencio (mother) and Mr dos Santos.
Antony Santos is the last born in his family of 3.
As the youngest child of his parents, Antony was often babied but never spoiled. Early on, he never felt family pressure like Emerson Santos, his older brother.
Antony was more impetuous, always stretching himself to try new experiences than his siblings.
The truth is, there was no worry for him to meet his parents’ high expectations and that is the reason why his Dad and Mum jumped through hoops to satisfy his one and only life desire – that is, Football.
First thing first, his household is not the super-rich type, but one that lived and fared comfortably as average Brazilian citizens. Antony dos Santos comes from a humble middle-class family background.
The footballer’s household is driven by a super Dad (Mr dos Santos). This man knows how important it is to make his family members have that feeling of affection and closeness.
Antony’s household is made up of working-class parents who have good financial education and were never penniless.
The great grandparents of the Brazilian footballer came from Portugal to settle in Brazil. For this reason, we can say that Antony has his family roots in a southern European country.
Antony has 2 siblings. Antony Matheus dos Santos came to the world as the last born child, out of three children (himself, a brother and a sister) born of the marital union between his parents.
The Brazilian football starlet spent most of his childhood with his elder siblings and parents. Emerson Santos is the name of Antony’s elder brother.
Antony Santos is currently married to his lovely wife, Rosilene Xavier.
Antony began dating the Brazilian when he played for Sao Paulo’s youth team, where he spent nine years between 2010 and 2019. It is unknown when the couple tied the knot, though it was reportedly a private ceremony attended only by their closest friends and relatives.
Rosilene Xavier gave birth to a son, Lorenzo, in November 2019 and is believed to be highly family-oriented. And despite the fame that comes with her husband being a fully-fledged Brazil international, Rosilene is fiercely protective of her family’s privacy, unlike many other high-profile WAGs who are no strangers to the headlines.
Antony Santos and his wife Rosilene Xavier have a son named Lorenzo who was born in 2019.
Lorenzo dos Santos
Precisely on the 8th day of November 2019, Antony and Rosilene welcomed their first fruit – a son who they named Lorenzo.
Having a child is the most amazing thing for the new parents. It was a great joy for both Antony and Rosilene to hold Lorenzo for the first time.
For Antony, quality time is key as far as a father-son relationship is concerned. The winger is the type who puts spending quality time with Lorenzo at the top of his to-do list.
Antony is a Christian by religion.
