They famously met while she was working as a shop assistant in Madrid, as they caught eyes across the rails in Gucci.
And Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez has now admitted the meeting saw her ‘fall in love at first sight’ with the football star.
The 25-year-old claimed the feeling was mutual following their June 2016 encounter as she revealed all in a chat with Italy’s Elle magazine.
Georgina said: ‘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…
‘It was then we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment… It was love at first sight for both.’
The brunette beauty, who swapped Madrid for Turin last summer after Cristiano signed for Juventus, painted an idyllic existence 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 Cristianinho.
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 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.’
