DUBAI: Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that his wedding to long-term girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez might be as soon as a month away, and that he is “100%” convinced it will take place.
Georgina, who recently turned 28, reveals in a new Netflix documentary on her rags-to-riches storey that she wants to marry her football star fiancé and will say ‘yes’ when he asks for her hand in marriage. In a 2019 interview, the Manchester United striker stated that they will be man and wife “one day,” admitting that it was his mother’s desire.
The 36-year-old took one step further in the Netflix docuseries ‘I Am Georgina,’ revealing they might be only weeks away from the altar after dating for more than five years and confirming they are planning to expand their family with the birth of twins in April.
Cristiano, who spent thousands of dollars to give Georgina the ultimate birthday present of a laser show on the facade of Dubai’s famous Burj Khalifa tower, said after his girlfriend joked about a wedding with friends: “I always tell Georgina that when we get that click, like everything in our life, and she knows what I’m talking about.”
“It could be in a year, or it could be in six months or in a month. I’m 1000 percent sure it will happen.”
The footballer’s wedding announcement came as Georgina revealed that they intend to live in Portugal once Cristiano retires, and the striker stated that he feels “free as a bird” in his hometown and “less observed” than in other parts of Europe.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is having a new residence built on a vast plot of land in Quinta da Marinha on the so-called Portuguese Riviera, half an hour from Lisbon Airport and 10 minutes from Cascais centre.
Georgina, who has visited Portugal multiple times with her partner since they began dating in 2016 after he came into the Gucci store where she worked in Madrid, said:
“Everyone’s so considerate with us in Portugal even though it’s Cristiano’s homeland. You walk down the street and everyone’s keeping their distance. It’s a comfortable place to spend summer. In the future we’ll probably live in Portugal.”
