Who Is Cristiano Ronaldo?
We’ll spare you the long biography, as you’re probably already familiar with professional Portuguese football player Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo shot to worldwide fame upon signing with Manchester United. He later had some of the best moments of his career playing for Real Madrid. Ronaldo is the current forward for the Juventus club as well as the captain for the Portuguese national football team.
In his 15+ years as a pro football player, Ronaldo has racked up several achievements, such as five Ballon d’Or awards, almost 30 titles, and record-breaking stats. He is considered one of the best (and most marketable) athletes in the world, and perhaps one of the best football players of all time.
Ronaldo is also one of football’s highest-paid athletes. This year, his salary is pegged at €31 million ($AUD 50.6 million). His net worth is estimated at $USD 450 million ($AUD 663 million), which makes him one of the richest athletes in the world.
Who Has Cristiano Ronaldo Dated?
As we mentioned earlier, Ronaldo was known as a womaniser at the height of his career, so he’s had quite a few ex-girlfriends and former flames. Despite persistent (and unfounded) rumours that Ronaldo could be gay, the athlete has gone out (or hooked up) with women like Paris Hilton, Gemma Atkinson, and allegedly even Kim Kardashian way back when.
But his most high-profile relationship (prior to his current one) was with model Irina Shayk, a Victoria’s Secret angel who just recently split with her own celebrity ex, Bradley Cooper. The pair dated from 2010 to 2015, and broke up amidst rumours of Ronaldo’s philandering and Shayk’s “war” with Cristiano’s mum.
Who Is Georgina Rodriguez?
Georgina Rodriguez (who also goes by the nickname Gio) is a 25-year-old model who hails from the city of Jaca in northeastern Spain. Prior to her relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, the Spanish stunner worked several odd jobs, including waitress, au pair, and shop assistant.
The gorgeous woman has come a long way since her humble beginnings and can be seen posting pics on Instagram, working for beauty and lifestyle brands, accompanying her famous beau to events, and bonding with his many kids.
When And Where Did Cristiano Ronaldo And Georgina Meet?
The meet-cute between Ronaldo and Rodriguez is the stuff of rom-coms. The Gucci shop assistant first met the world-famous soccer player in June 2016 when he walked into the Gucci store she worked at – changing her life forever.
Days later, they met again at the brand’s event and finally got to talking, exchanging numbers. Rodriguez was even quoted as saying, “It was love at first sight for both,” in an interview with Elle Italy.
The pair have been inseparable ever since!
Do Cristiano And Georgina Have Any Kids?
Cristiano and Georgina are the proud parents of Alana Marti, who was born in November 2017. However, while their daughter is their first child together, she is not Cristiano’s eldest offspring.
The football player is also a father to 9-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo Jr (his eldest son), whose mother is unknown to this day. He also has kids by an unidentified surrogate – twins Eva and Mateo Ronaldo, born in June 2017, five days before Cristiano Jr’s birthday.
Are Cristiano Ronaldo And Georgina Rodriguez Married?
Although Georgina Rodriguez isn’t Cristiano Ronaldo’s wife (yet), that might change soon. The latest news on the pair speculates that Rodriguez and Ronaldo are already engaged. After all, they’re already a family, with Rodriguez taking over mum duties for Cristiano’s children – why not make it official and be spouses, too?
Notable Moments In Cristiano And Georgina’s Relationship
Cristiano and Georgina were first spotted in public on a romantic date in Disneyland. The soccer star tried to keep it lowkey with a hoodie, hat, and shades but was still spotted by paparazzi.
Georgina made her first major debut as Ronaldo’s girlfriend when she (and Cristiano Ronaldo Jr) accompanied him to the 2017 FIFA Awards.
The couple welcomed their first biological child together in 2017. Rodriguez posted a sweet Instagram pic, while Ronaldo shared this photo on Twitter.
A lot of women (and some men) would give anything to be with Cristiano Ronaldo. But sorry guys, the football hunk is definitely off the market. Georgina Rodriguez is one lucky gal, but judging by the fact that she’s gorgeous, supportive, and a loving mother to all of Ronaldo’s kids, we’d say that Cristiano is one lucky dude as well.
