Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend has admitted she fell in love at first sight with the football star after they met when she worked in an upmarket Madrid clothes store.
And stunning Georgina Rodriguez claimed the feeling was mutual following their June 2016 encounter.
She told Italy’s Elle magazine: “The first meeting with Ronaldo was at Gucci where I worked as a sales assistant.
“Days later we saw each other again at another brand’s event and it was then we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.”
The 25-year-old brunette, who swapped Madrid for Turin last summer after Cristiano signed for Juventus for £99million, painted an idyllic picture of life in her new home city with her partner of nearly three years.
The pair have a one-year-old daughter called Alana Martina and Georgina, born to a Spanish mum and Argentinian dad, is also raising Cristiano’s near-two-year-old twins Eva and Mateo and eight-year-old son Cristiano Jr, who were all born of surrogate mothers.
Georgina admitted in an interview with glossy Spanish magazine Hola! in February she would love to become the football star’s wife but quashed rumours they are already engaged.
She said how her typical day consisted of waking up the children, changing them and having breakfast together before playing with them and preparing lunch, followed by a nap, a gym and spa session and a spot of TV with Cristiano before bed.
She added in the interview, headlined: ‘My life with Ronaldo’: “Home is where my family is. The place where I am happiest is my home, with my children and partner.
“Our house is our refuge, our temple built with so much love.”
Georgina, who grew up in the Spanish Pyrenees city of Jaca, has been a rock of support for Cristiano since it emerged he is being probed by Las Vegas police over 2009 rape claims.
The footballer has denied raping American accuser Kathryn Mayorga at a hotel in the city.
