Georgina Rodriguez stopped dating Cristiano Ronaldo when her convict father suffered a stroke

Georgina Rodriguez has revealed she briefly stopped seeing Cristiano Ronaldo after her father suffered a stroke.  

The pair first met when Georgina was working as a saleswoman at Gucci in Madrid and assisted the footballer with his shopping. 

Speaking on her new Netflix series, I Am Georgina, she revealed that the pair attended a few events together but then stopped talking for a while as she became ‘sad and absent’ when her dad fell ill.  

‘I was sad and absent’: Georgina Rodriguez has revealed she stopped seeing Cristiano Ronaldo in the early days of their romance after her father suffered a stroke

Cristiano said of their romance: ‘It wasn’t sudden. It took a bit, perhaps a couple of months, because during that time we kind of stopped seeing each other.’

Georgina explained: ‘Cristiano had a lot of games, the thing with my father also happened then.

For a bit I was a little absent, well I was sad… and one day we ran into each other at another event and he asked me for dinner I thought “finally, my chance has come”.’  

Georgina’s father Jorge suffered a stroke in 2016 and passed away three years later due to ongoing complications. 

The pair had a complicated relationship, with Georgina raised by her uncle while Jorge served  ten years jail for two drugs trafficking offences. 

The Buenos Aires-born convict is thought to have been kicked out of the country and banned from returning to Spain after completing his sentence in August 2013.

Elsewhere on the show, Georgina reflected on her life changing from working in a luxury shop to living a life where she could buy the items herself. 

She mused: ‘Five years ago, my life changed. Thanks to love, my life is now a dream.  Nothing in life has come easy. I know what it is to have nothing and to have everything.’

Recalling their first meeting, she said: ‘My colleague said “I am on vacation, there’s a client who wants to buy some coats, please stay half an hour and help her”.

‘As I am leaving, I see a very handsome man appear almost two meters tall. He was a with a boy and some friends. I stand frozen. 

‘Junior [Cristano’s son] stands in front of me. Very well behaved, he greets me. So it was funny, like the kid had said hi to me, of course to a young girl, pretty.

‘I started feeling butterflies in my stomach and I thought “what is going on with me?” So I didn’t even want to look at him. I was very shy.’

Cristiano added: ‘So that’s when I went in and Gio was there. She was already done with work and it was like a moment that – we clicked. And that’s when she got stuck in my head.’ 

After their meeting the pair attended an event together in the evening but Georgina was forced to leave early for a company dinner. 

Although the pair’s budding romance fizzled out when Georgina’s father fell ill, a chance meeting at another event reignited their relationship and the footballer reached out to invite her for dinner.   

Georgina admitted: ‘I said yes even though I’d had dinner a couple hours ago! I went to his place and he had his mashed potatoes, his veggies, his chicken and I had dinner again, like a lady.’ 

From there, the couple’s relationship continued to go from strength to strength and they welcomed their daughter Alana Martina in November 2017.

The couple are currently expecting twins – a boy and a girl – and Georgina is stepmother to Cristiano’s son Junior, 11, and twins twins Eva and Mateo, three.  

Gushing over their romance, Cristiano admitted: ‘Georgina is the woman of my life, I am completely in love with her.  

‘She was a very interesting girl, much more mature for her age… we have a bit of an age difference… and I started to get hooked, it kept me interested. 

‘I didn’t think at the beginning that it would be this strong, that I would fall in love with her… I didn’t expect it honestly but after I while I felt like she was the woman of my life.’ 

Georgina went on: ‘I used to dream of a Prince Charming and today I have one with wonderful kids who give me so much love. Yes, I can say dreams do come true.’
