Cristiano Ronaldo ‘engaged to Georgina Rodriguez’ a year after they welcomed baby daughter Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly asked his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez to marry him.
The Spanish beauty has said ‘yes’ and has started trying on wedding dresses, Portugal’s best-selling newspaper Correio da Manha has claimed.
The pair is living as man and wife in Italy and has a one-year-old daughter, Alana Martina.
Georgina, who has backed the Juventus forward over claims he raped an American woman in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, is also helping to raise the footballer’s other three children – Cristiano Junior, eight and toddler twins Eva and Matteo, who he had with a surrogate mother in the US.
The couple were pictured wearing matching new Cartier rings during a recent romantic dinner in London.
Correio da Manha, referring to Georgina by her nickname Gio, quoted a source as saying: “Cristiano has already asked Gio to marry him and the wedding will take place, but few people know the details.
“All that is known at the moment is that Gio has already tried on some wedding dresses.”
She was spotted at dinner at Zela in London wearing a huge diamond ring on her left hand, which she happened to rise to her face just as the camera bulbs started popping.
Georgina, who met Cristiano in June 2016 at the Gucci store in central Madrid she worked at when he was shopping for summer clothes, had sparked engagement rumours at the World Cup this summer by showing off a stunning £615,000 (Sh80,000,000) diamond ring.
Earlier this year the footballer’s mum said of Georgina during a magazine interview about her son’s love life, children and his alcoholic dad Dinis who drank himself into an early grave in September 2005:
“She is the mother of my grand-daughter. She is a future daughter-in-law. She’s not my daughter-in-law yet. She’s a future daughter-in-law. She’s a very calm person.”
The 23-year-old former shop worker has posted a number of social media messages showing her support for her partner since it emerged US police have reopened an investigation stemming from a 2009 complaint from Kathryn Mayorga, who says Cristiano raped her.
She issued a gushing statement in support of him after a shock report in German magazine Der Spiegel alleged the football star paid Ms Mayorga £287,000 ‘hush money’.
Posing in a mini skirt and black high heels, Gio wrote on Instagram that the former Man U forward was always able to “transform the obstacles” put in his path in a message signed off by five heart emojis.
Cristiano, 33, has described the rape allegations against him as “fake news” and blasted rape as an “abominable crime.”
