Georgina Rodriguez wasn’t wealthy when she first met the Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo. She was working as a shop assistant at a Gucci store at the time when the footballer walked in six years ago and the couple have been together ever since. As well as their blossoming romance, the new Netflix series I Am Georgina talks about the 28-year-old model’s family background.

What happened to Georgina Rodriguez’s father?

Georgina’s uncle Jesus Hernandez helped to raise her when she was a child after her dad Jorge was arrested.

He was sentenced to 11 years in prison in 2003 for attempting to smuggle more than £100,000 worth of cocaine from Spain to France.

Jorge was freed on licence in 2008 but was soon behind bars again for helping to smuggle £1million of cannabis resin from Morocco to Spain.

He received a two-year term and was let out again in 2013. 

Georgina’s dad suffered a stroke in 2016 and died three years later due to ongoing complications.

This was during the early stages of Georgina and Ronaldo dating which led to the couple spending some time apart.

Talking in the Netflix docu-series, Ronaldo said: “It wasn’t sudden.

“It took a bit, perhaps a couple of months, because during that time we kind of stopped seeing each other.”

Georgina herself also commented on that period in their lives when they didn’t see each other as much.

“Cristiano had a lot of games, the thing with my father also happened then”, she said.

“For a bit I was a little absent, well I was sad.

“And one day we ran into each other at another event and he asked me for dinner I thought ‘finally, my chance has come.'”

In the Netflix series, Georgina says she knows what it’s like “not to have anything — and what it is like to have it all”.

The model and influencer states that she hasn’t forgotten where she has come from but her uncle who has since spoken out has said otherwise.

Opening up to The Sun, Jesus said: “She may feel ashamed of us and consider she’s better than us because we don’t live with her luxury.

“I’ve never asked her for anything. She has only rung once or twice since I found out she was dating Ronaldo.”

Georgina and Ronaldo have one daughter together, four-year-old Alana Martina dos Santos Aveiro.

She is one of Ronaldo’s four children with two more on the way as his girlfriend is expecting twins.

The couple took to Instagram to share the good news, posting: “Delighted to announce we are expecting twins.

“Our hearts are full of love – we can’t wait to meet you”.

I Am Georgina is available to watch on Netflix.
