DUBAI: Cristiano Ronaldo has said his wedding to long-term girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez could be as close as a month away and he is “1000 percent” certain it will happen.
Georgina, who turned 28, revelas in a new Netflix show about her rags-to-riches life that she wants to tie the knot with her football star boyfriend and will say ‘yes’ when he asks for her hand in marriage. The Manchester United striker said in a 2019 interview they would be man and wife “one day” and admitted it was his mother’s dream.
In the Netflix docuseries ‘I Am Georgina’, the 36-year-old went one step further and revealed they could be just weeks away from the altar after dating for more than five years and confirmed they are preparing to expand their family with the arrival of twins expected in April.
Cristiano, who spent thousands to gift Georgina the ultimate birthday present with a laser show on the facade of the famous Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai, said after his girlfriend joked with pals about a wedding: “I always tell Georgina that when we get that click, like everything with 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 revelation came as Georgina said they were planning to live in Portugal after Cristiano retires and the striker admitted he feels “free as a bird” when he is in his homeland and “less observed” that in other places around Europe.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is having a new mansion built on a large plot of land in Quinta da Marinha on the so-called Portuguese Riviera, half an hour from Lisbon Airport and ten minutes from the centre of the coastal town of Cascais.
Georgina, who has made several trips to Portugal with her partner since they started dating in 2016 after he walked into the Gucci store in Madrid where she worked, 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.”
