Georgina Rodriguez, the long-time partner of football icon Cristiano Ronaldo, has come forward to clarify recent claims regarding her children’s experiences in Riyadh. After their family’s move to Saudi Arabia following Ronaldo’s transfer to Al-Nassr, media reports circulated suggesting the couple’s children were being bullied in school.
Rodriguez took to Instagram last night to address these allegations, stating that the stories were “absolutely false.” She shared that their children attend an excellent school with dedicated professionals and have found supportive friends in their new environment. Rodriguez also expressed gratitude for the positive experiences her family has had in every country and school they have been part of.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been thriving on the football pitch since his move to Al-Nassr. In 10 appearances for the Saudi Pro League side, he has scored nine goals and provided two assists, propelling the team to second place in the league standings. The couple and their five children – Cristiano Jr, Alana Martina, Mateo, Eva Maria, and Bella Esmeralda – now call Riyadh home.
In a recent interview with El Hormiguero, Rodriguez praised Saudi Arabia, calling it a “marvelous country” and lauding its safety, family-friendliness, and respect for women and children. These comments stand in stark contrast to the recent rumors of her children’s negative experiences in school.
Rodriguez’s statement has helped set the record straight on their family’s life in Riyadh, emphasizing that her children are content and well-adjusted in their new environment. As the family continues to settle into life in Saudi Arabia, Rodriguez and Ronaldo remain focused on their respective careers and providing a loving home for their children.
