When not remodeled into a statue, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most beautiful footballers in the world. So it’s little surprise many of the most beautiful women in the world have made the claim to fame of being a Cristiano Ronaldo girlfriend.
Ronaldo has never been a stranger to tabloids reporting on his love life, from rumored encounters with Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton to confirmed relationships with models, swimsuit models and lingerie models.
The latest Cristiano Ronaldo girlfriend is Georgina Rodriguez, who gave birth to the Real Madrid star’s fourth child. (Ronaldo has never revealed the identity of the mother of his first child, a son, and his second and third children were born to a surrogate mother.) Ronaldo has been with Rodriguez since November 2016, and maybe, with their child together, she will be his last girlfriend for the foreseeable future.
Until then, this list of every confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo girlfriend will be complete, at least for his partners since he turned pro in 2002. We also touch on some of his rumored relationships below.
Every Cristiano Ronaldo Girlfriend
Ronaldo’s first notable girlfriend as a professional player was Jordana Jardel, the brother of then Sporting Lisbon teammate Mario Jardel. Jordana, a Brazilian model, was involved with Ronaldo in 2003.
Romero, a Portuguese model and TV presenter, dated Ronaldo from January 2005 to September 2006, making her one Ronaldo’s longest-lasting girlfriend while he played in England with Manchester United.
The only British woman Ronaldo has been romantically linked with is Atkinson, a lingerie model. The pair was together only briefly, for four months at the start of 2007.
At the start of 2008, Ronaldo decided to switch things up and date a Spanish model by the name of Nereida Gallardo. The relationship, however, didn’t make it past summer.
After supposed encounters with the likes of Gabriela Endringer, Raffaella Fico, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, Ronaldo found a lasting relationship with Irina Shayk in 2010. Ronaldo dated this Russian model, who appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, before it was cool to collude with Russians. The couple was together for nearly five years, eventually breaking up in January of 2015.
Ronaldo’s rebound girl after his breakup with Shayk in early 2015 was Villalon, a Spanish TV reporter. It didn’t last long, probably because she wasn’t a model.
The mother of Ronaldo’s fourth child in November of 2017, Rodriguez began dating Ronaldo a year earlier. Rodriguez, from Spain, is — get this — a model. They’re still together going strong as of February 2020.
Rumored Cristiano Ronaldo Girlfriends
A Portuguese model, Ferro and Ronaldo were rumored to be an item in 2002 before the latter became an international superstar.
These two are purported to have dated briefly after Ronaldo was with Romero. Chaves, a Portuguese actress and model, is known for her starring role as Maria in the film Call Girl, the highest-grossing film in Portugal in 2007.
A family friend of the Ronaldos, Judaken was only 18 when the two were romantically linked, which the young Portuguese socialite denied.
Storey and Cunningham were reportedly a part of a poolside orgy that also included Manchester United teammates Nani and Anderson. The two were supposedly escorts and ultimately Ronaldo was fined more than $3,000 for the incident.
An Indian model and actress, the two were caught making out while Basu was dating another Indian actor in 2007.
Never confirmed, the two are rumored to have hooked up after Hilton, an American reality TV star, broke up with a previous boyfriend in 2009.
Kardashian, who became famous thanks to a conveniently leaked sex tape and her famous, late father, was rumored to have spent vacation time with Ronaldo in 2010 before she eventually settled down with some chump named Kanye West.
