The pair were apparently dating in secret for months but now they’ve gone public with their relationship
GEORGINA Rodriguez has been hitting the headlines recently after she and her boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo went public with their relationship.
Although Rodriguez would probably rather not have been in the papers for having to cancel an El Clasico victory party following Barcelona’s 3-2 win.
But how did her and Ronaldo meet and what else do we know about the couple? Here are all the details you need.
Who is Georgina Rodriguez?
Georgina Rodriguez, 22, grew up in Jaca, a city which is located in northeastern Spain and is part of the province of Heusca, near the Pyrenees.
The 22-year-old has been dominating the news lately after she was spotted on a string of dates with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
News of the relationship began to emerge in November, when the pair were snapped walking round round Disneyland Paris arm-in-arm and publicly showing their affection for one another.
And despite putting on a disguise, the Italian magazine Chi were able to identify Ronaldo as he cuddled up to his new love interest.
Rodriguez studied dance before changing career to modelling after studying English in London.
How did Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo meet?
Before becoming Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Rodriguez worked at a Gucci store in the Spanish capital of Madrid.
It’s believed the Spanish beauty caught the eye of Cristiano Ronaldo in the VIP area of a Dolce & Gabbana event.
After the event, the pair apparently started dating in secret for months before going public with their romance at the French theme park.
How long have Georgina Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo been dating?
Despite their recent romantic dates, it’s likely their relationship is still fairly fresh as Ronaldo was caught cuddling up to fitness model Cassandre Davis in August.
And, just one month later, it was rumoured that he had moved onto dating former Miss Spain Desire Cordero.
However, their romance ended quite quickly as the superstar footballer apparently believed Cordero was ‘using him for fame and attention’.
But, while it’s difficult to know exactly how long Ronaldo and Rodriguez have been together, their first public date was in mid-November, so it seems they’ve been a couple for nearly six months.
On 23rd February Ronaldo joked to a friend telling him to ‘be careful’ when he uploaded a photo alongside Rodriguez.
Has Georgina Rodriguez been having an impact on Cristiano Ronaldo’s football?
Footballing fans have probably spotted Rodriguez in the crowd at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as she has been attending matches in support of her boyfriend.
And in one set of sweet snaps, Rodriguez can be seen bonding with the footballer’s son Ronaldo Jr while watching the team win 3-1 against Deportivo, which is sure to please the Real Madrid star.
As well as having a positive impact on his personal life, some would argue Georgina’s attendance at matches has been having also benefited the Spanish team.
Ronaldo also made history last year by becoming the first player ever to reach a half century of goals for the sixth calendar year in succession.
But staff at the Bernabeu were believed to have been less than impressed when she prematurely organised a victory party for the match against Barcelona in April.
Ronaldo was then promptly upstaged by Lionel Messi as Real Madrid slumped to a last gasp defeat.
Club officials are believed to have banned any further ‘victory parties’ as they are viewed as being unlucky.
