Who is Georgina Rodriguez?
Georgina Rodriguez grew up in Jaca, a city in north eastern Spain and part of the province of Huesca, near the Pyrenees.
She was born to a Spanish mum and Argentinian dad.
Georgina learned dance before changing careers to modelling after studying English in London.
The Sun revealed that her father is a convicted cocaine trafficker named Jorge Rodriguez, 71, who spent ten years in jail.
The 27-year-old was first spotted on a string of dates with then-Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo towards the end of 2016.
Georgina has claimed that her first meeting with the football star was “love at first sight.”
“Our first meeting was at Gucci, where I worked as a sales assistant,” she recalled in an interview with The Sun .
“Days later, we saw each other again at another brand’s event.
“It was then that we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.”
News of her relationship with the footballer began to emerge in November 2016 when they were snapped walking around Disneyland Paris arm-in-arm and publicly showing their affection for one another.
And despite putting on a disguise, the Italian magazine Chi was able to identify Ronaldo as he cuddled up to his new love interest.
Georgina gave birth to baby daughter Alana Martina on November 12, 2017, with Ronaldo posting a picture on Instagram, writing: “Alana Martina is just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy!'”
And just over two years later, the pair were forced to deny rumours that they had got hitched in a low-key ceremony in Morocco.
On October 28, Ronaldo and Georgina confirmed they will be welcoming twins next year.
And this week, her new Netflix show ‘I am Georgina’ is set to premiere on the streaming site.

In June 2017, Ronaldo then welcomed twins – Eva and Mateo – into the world after a surrogate mother allegedly gave birth to them in the United States.
A month later, Ronaldo confirmed in an interview that he and Georgina Rodriguez were expecting their first baby together.
When asked by Spanish news outlet El Mundo whether the player was “happy” to have another child on the way, he replied: “Yes, very much.”
By October 2021, it was once again announced that the Ronaldo contingent would increase as the pair announced they would be expecting twins.

Ronaldo wrote on social media: “It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away.
“It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel.
“Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.
“We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support.
“We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.
“Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.”
