GEORGINA RODRIGUEZ has been by the side of superstar footballer Cristiano Ronaldo for almost five years.
The couple now have a daughter together, Alana, while also raising Ronaldo’s other three children – here is all you need to know about the Spanish-Argentine model.
Who is Georgina Rodriguez?
Georgina Rodriguez grew up in Jaca, a city in north eastern Spain and part of the province of Huesca, near the Pyrenees.
She was born to a Spanish mum and Argentine dad.
Georgina learned dance before changing careers to modelling after studying English in London.
The Sun revealed that her father is a convicted cocaine trafficker named Jorge Rodriguez, 71, who spent ten years in jail.
The 27-year-old was first spotted on a string of dates with then-Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo towards the end of 2016.
Georgina has 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 another brand’s event.
“It was then that we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.”
News of her relationship with the footballer began to emerge in November 2016 when they were snapped walking around Disneyland Paris arm-in-arm and publicly showing their affection for one another.
And despite putting on a disguise, the Italian magazine Chi was able to identify Ronaldo as he cuddled up to his new love interest.
Georgina gave birth to baby daughter Alana Martina on November 12, 2017, with Ronaldo posting a picture on Instagram, writing: “Alana Martina is just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy!’”
And just over two years later, the pair were forced to deny rumours that they had got hitched in a low-key ceremony in Morocco.
How did Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo meet?
Before meeting Ronaldo, Georgina worked at a Gucci store in the Spanish capital of Madrid.
It’s believed the Spanish beauty caught the eye of Cristiano Ronaldo in the VIP area of a Dolce & Gabbana event.
How long have Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo been dating?
The couple appeared to start dating a few months after Ronaldo was caught cuddling up to fitness model Cassandre Davis in August 2016.
And, while it’s difficult to know exactly how long Ronaldo and Georgina have been together, their first public date was in mid-November 2016.
On February 23, 2017, Ronaldo joked to a friend telling him to “be careful” when he uploaded a photo alongside Georgina.
How many children does Cristiano Ronaldo have?
The star now has four children after the birth of Alana Martina.
Ronaldo, 36, welcomed twins – Eva and Mateo – into the world in June 2017 after a surrogate mother allegedly gave birth to them in America.
He is also a father to seven-year-old son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.
In May 2020, an update to her Instagram story showed a blurred photo of her chewing gum with the words “Baby Girl” typed above alongside a heart wrapped in a bow emoji.
Rodriguez did not confirm she is expecting but the hint certainly suggested there was a possibility she was pregnant.
