Inside Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez’s relationship from babies to engagements
Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have struck gold with his longtime girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez. The couple have been dating for three years and are still going strong, four kids later. In her latest interview, Georgina, 25, reveals exactly how they have managed to keep the spark alive in their relationship. ‘
To seduce and to dream is so important. I always sleep in lingerie and I prefer sexy lingerie,’ Georgina told the Sun On Sunday. But there’s much more substance to their romance than just their bedroom antics, with Georgina detailing their emotional connection too. As the secret to their lasting love is revealed, here’s a look back at where Cristiano and Georgina’s love story began. Love at first sight It was love at first sight for the ridiculously good looking couple after they met at the Gucci store where Georgina was working as a sales assistant in 2016. Recalling the early days of their relationship, Georgina revealed to Italy’s Elle magazine: ‘Days later we saw each other again at another brand’s event. ‘It was then that we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.
Two small surprises In June 2017, Cristiano announced that he had become a father to twins Mateo and Eva Maria. It came as a huge surprise for many that Georgina was not the biological mother, as the Juventus football player had chosen to use a surrogate to carry the babies. But the couple were still together and Georgina embraced the twins like they were her own.
An even bigger surprise Cristiano didn’t waste time in adding to his growing brood as, less than a month after the twins arrived, he and Georgina confirmed she was pregnant with their first child together. Just a few weeks before Georgina gave birth, she penned a heartfelt tribute to her beau in celebration of his team winning their game. Proving how strong their love was, the model wrote: ‘What a special day! Let’s toast for now without alcohol and instead with your well-deserved trophies. For all of your effort, dedication, sacrifice, and so many hours of training to be at another level. Your life is soccer, and this is clearly reflected in the field. ‘Keep being like this, always striving, and I’ll be here by your side, supporting you, giving you love, tranquility and all that you need when you get home. In good times and in bad times, because there couldn’t be any other way. ‘We love and admire you, champion.’
Anyone else need a tissue? Then in November 2017, Georgina gave birth to a bouncing baby girl, Alana Martina. The joyful news was announced on Instagram with a cute photo of Cristiano and his eldest son Cristiano Jr wearing hospital scrubs, while Georgina cradled baby Alana in her arms. Oh, and it became one of the most-liked Instagram photos of 2017 after clocking up over 11 million likes. After rounding off a busy year filled with three new arrivals, Cristiano and Georgina spent Christmas at home with both of their families together.
Rape charge In 2018, a woman came forward to accuse Cristiano, 34, of raping her at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009. The former Real Madrid player always denied the allegations and his lawyer argued that he and the woman, Kathryn Mayorga, had consensual sex. In July 2019, it was revealed that Cristiano would not face criminal charges. Georgina supported Cristiano throughout the ordeal and made her feelings clear in an Instagram post shortly after the claims were made. Alongside a photo of her watching one of Cristiano’s football matches, the model wrote: ‘You always transform the obstacles that are put in your way into impulse and strength to show how great you are. ‘Thank you for making us enjoy each game. Always more and better. I love you @cristiano.’
Otherwise engaged? In February 2019, rumours were rife that Cristiano and Georgina were engaged but it seems we were all celebrating prematurely. Georgina later clarified that Cristiano hadn’t popped the question just yet but it’s basically only a matter of time. Speaking to Spain’s Hola! Magazine, she said: ‘Every couple wants to get married and I would love to personally. ‘Right how we have priorities and a lot of responsibilities, although in the future it would be marvellous to become Cristiano’s wife.’ The secret This month, Georgina revealed exactly how she and Cristiano keep things spicy behind-closed-doors. The lingerie model told the Sun On Sunday: ‘Being the partner of someone so famous is not easy but I would not change it for the world. ‘What I feel for him is stronger than anything, any kind of pressure. Together we are stronger and there is a mutual admiration.
