The Spanish model is the Juventus star’s most serious love interest since breaking up with longtime partner Irina Shayk
Cristiano Ronaldo may have spent most of his life in the public eye, but he has remained relatively secretive about his personal relationships since becoming football’s celebrity.
The Juventus forward dated Russian model Irina Shayk for almost five years until January 2015, when their breakup was described as “like a death” in the family by his sister Elma.
Ronaldo was linked with a number of women after that, but it became apparent a few years ago that Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez is officially the partner of the Portugal captain.
This is what we know about Ronaldo’s love interest.
Who is Georgina Rodriguez?
Rodriguez is from the town of Jaca in northeastern Spain. It has just over 13,000 inhabitants and is located near the French border, about 450 km from Madrid.
She reportedly worked as a waitress in her hometown before moving in with a family to Bristol, England as an au pair.
How did she meet Ronaldo?
According to AS , Rodriguez met the Portuguese star at a Gucci store in Madrid, where she worked as a saleswoman.
âHer size, her body, her beauty caught my attention. I was shaking in front of him, but a spark ignited, âshe said.
âI am very shy and it may have moved me more in front of a person who, with one glance, had touched me deeply. Then the way Cristiano treats me, takes care of me and loves me did the rest.
The relationship continued to grow from there, and they began to be photographed by paparazzi together in public in late 2016. Most memorable, Ronaldo was caught in a wig and sunglasses in an attempt to disguise himself during the event. of a trip to Disneyland Paris later that year.
Rodriguez has since attended Real Madrid games and, of course, has been part of the FIFA awards family, attending ceremonies with Ronaldo’s mother, sisters and son.
There had been no actual announcement of the relationship in the photos posted to Ronaldo and Rodriguez’s Instagram accounts, but it became apparent that they had become a feature.
What does the future hold?
With Ronaldo, who knows?
This relationship is clearly the most serious he has had since his split with Irina in 2015, a fact which is deeply underscored by the fact that Georgina recently gave birth to a baby girl – her first with Ronaldo and the fourth child of the star of Juventus.
Georgina also seems to get along well with her son, Cristiano Jr, whom Ronaldo has full custody and care for with his mother, Dolores. The identity of Cristiano Jr’s biological mother has been kept a secret since his birth in the United States in 2010.
Indeed, Georgina is very involved with all of Ronaldo’s children and is regularly photographed with them in seemingly tender moments.
The two made it clear that they were in love, and Georgina even explained it on Instagram. She was even there when Ronaldo’s yacht was inspected by Balearic Islands tax officers and followed Ronaldo from Madrid to Spain after the forward signed for Juventus.
More kids together may be something the couple are considering, but maybe marriage isn’t that far away.
Does Georgina attend Ronaldo’s games?
Georgina has been spotted in several Real Madrid games, usually sitting next to and chatting with Cristiano Jr in the executive boxes, as well as attending several Juventus games.
She was on the pitch to celebrate Ronaldo’s first Serie A victory with Juventus in 2019.
âCongratulations, my love, on being CHAMPION again. We love you,â she wrote on her Instagram.
The model has also been there to support her husband at his award ceremonies, such as the FIFA Best Awards.
During the 2018 World Cup, Georgina was spotted at Portugal matches cheering on Ronaldo from the stands.
In their last group game against Iran, she posted a photo of herself wearing a Ronaldo No.7 shirt with the caption: “Come on Cristiano. We love you”.
