Georgina Rodriguez was alongside soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo as he returned to the Premier League.
Ronaldo, 36, has agreed to a £480,000-a-week deal to re-sign at Old Trafford, 12 years after leaving the club where he built up his reputation as the world’s most popular athlete.
The couple now have a daughter together, Alana, while also raising Ronaldo’s three other children – here’s everything you need to know about the Spanish-Argentine supermodel.
Who is Georgina Rodriguez?
Georgina Rodriguez grew up in Jaca, a city located in northeastern Spain and part of the Huesca province, near the Pyrenees.
She was born to a Spanish mother and an Argentine father.
Georgina learned to dance before changing her profession to modeling after studying English in London.
The Sun revealed that her father, a convict of cocaine smuggling, named Jorge Rodriguez, 71, who had spent ten years in prison.
The 27-year-old was first spotted on a string of dates with then-Real Madrid star Ronaldo at the end of 2016.
Georgina claimed that her first meeting with the football star was “love at first sight”.
“Our first meeting was at Gucci, where I worked as a sales assistant,” she recalled in an interview with The Sun.
“Days later, we saw each other again at an event for another brand.
“Then we can talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside my work environment. It was love at first sight for both of them.”
News of her relationship with the footballer began to emerge in November 2016 when they were photographed walking around Disneyland Paris with arms crossed and openly showing their affection for each other.
And despite donning a disguise, Italian magazine Chi was able to spot Ronaldo embracing his newfound love interest.
Georgina gave birth to her daughter Alana Martina on November 12, 2017, Ronaldo posted a photo on Instagram, writing: “Alana Martina was born! Both Jio and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy! “
A little more than two years later, the couple was forced to deny the rumors circulating at a simple ceremony in Morocco.
On October 28, Ronaldo and Georgina confirmed that they will welcome twins next year.
