An old saying says that behind a great man or athlete there is a great woman who accompanies him to achieve his goals. And Cristiano Ronaldo can attest to that, since he's in a relationship with Georgina Rodríguez, who's a Argentine nationalized Spanish model and advises and accompanies him at all times. The couple have been together for several years and have a daughter named Alana Martina.
Of an Argentine father and a Spanish mother, as she herself confessed in an interview with XL Semanal in March 2018: "My father is Argentine and my mother is from Murcia. They went to Buenos Aires with my sister Ivana so that they could meet the family of my father. They decided to stay there for a while and I was born. My father tried to convince my mother to live in Argentina, but he didn't succeed and, when I was one year old, they returned to Murcia. Later, we moved to live in Jaca".
She's told that she has worked as a waitress in her hometown before moving with a family to Bristol (England) as an au pair. Most recently, she worked as an employee at a Gucci store in Madrid and at the Prada store in El Corte Inglés. Georgina's also a dancer, but since she is with Ronaldo she also started her career as a model after signing her in May 2017 with the UNO Models agency. Her debut as a photographic model was with a spectacular black bikini.
“She did ballet for fifteen years. My training in classical dance has given me values such as love of art, companionship, discipline and the importance of leading a healthy life. In my day to day, I like to take care of myself by doing sports and eating in a balanced way. I try to take natural products, avoiding heavy meals”, says Rodríguez herself about her hobbies.
How did you meet Cristiano Ronaldo?
Rumors say that Cristiano Ronaldo met Georgina Rodríguez in the VIP area of an event organized in Madrid by Dolce & Gabbana, although it is not too clear when they begin to see each other. In February 2020, in an interview with the Italian magazine Grazia, the model told details of her first meeting with the footballer: "I was struck by the height, the body, the beauty. I was trembling in front of him, but a sparkle. I'm very shy and perhaps this has agitated me more in front of a person who, with a single look, had touched me deeply. Then the way in which Cristiano treats me, takes care of me and loves me did the rest".
