Summary of her father Pelé’s early career
Edson Arantes do Nascimento, best known as Pelé, the son of Fluminense footballer Dondinho and Celeste Arantes, was born on October 23, 1940, in Três Coraçes, Minas Gerais, Brazil. He was the eldest of two brothers and sisters. He was named after Thomas Edison, an American inventor. His parents chose to delete the ‘i’ and call him “Edson,” but there was an error on the birth certificate, so many records show him as “Edison,” rather than “Edson,” as he is.
His relatives first referred to him as “Dico.” During his school days, he was given the nickname “Pelé” supposedly due to his mispronunciation of the name of his favorite player, local Vasco da Gama goalie Bilé, which he misspoke but the more he complained, the more it stuck. Pelé confessed in his memoirs that he and his old friends had no idea what the moniker signified. Aside from the allegation that the name is derived from Bilé and that it is Hebrew for “wonder,” there is no acknowledged Portuguese meaning for the phrase. He grew up in the impoverished hamlet of Bauru, So Paulo state.
Controversies surround her father Pelé
Pelé had a volatile relationship before marrying. In 1964, he had an affair with a maid named Anizia Machado. When Anizia accused him of fathering Sandra Regina Machado, her kid, he denied the affair for decades. Sandra underwent a lengthy legal battle as she grew older to be recognized as his daughter. She sued him in 1991, and DNA tests revealed that she was his daughter, which he refused to acknowledge until 1998. She was never compensated for growing up without the advantages his other six children received. Sandra died without being compensated in October 2006.
