Cristiano Ronaldo banned from changing lightbulbs in mansion in case he injures himself, Georgina Rodriguez says

GEORGINA Rodriguez once revealed she changes the lightbulbs because she doesn’t want Cristiano Ronaldo to risk an injury on a stepladder.

The glamorous Spaniard has also said she’s the one who does other chores around the house including the cooking.

Georgina opened up on family life as she left fans guessing about whether the couple had tied the knot by referring to her partner of nearly five years as her husband.

She called Cristiano her ‘marido’ - Spanish for husband - twice in a week earlier in the year.

And the 27-year-old model and influencer sparked more speculation in an Italian magazine interview by using the same expression.

Georgina told Sportweek during a raunchy photo shoot in February: “Cristiano is a super dad and the best husband I could dream of.

“But he doesn’t cook. After training all morning, he deserves to find a good plate of hot food prepared with love at the table.

“We have a chef and sometimes I cook. And changing a light bulb in our house is impossible, we have such high ceilings.


“If you were Cristiano Ronaldo, would you change a light bulb nearly 20 foot above the ground?

“Better not. Take care of yourself and dedicate yourself to being the best at what you do.

"I'll take care of the rest. I make it all work out. I like to take care of my home and my family.”

The reveal came before Georgina moved to England with Cristiano, who secured a stunning return to Manchester United.

But she had also credited her keep-fit fanatic man with making her look and feel better than she did when they started dating.

The pretty brunette, a £250-a-week shop assistant when they met in June 2016, said: “We share the gym because we only have one in the house.

“I have learned a lot from him. He helps me, teaches and motivates me.

“In the end you are the reflection of what you see, and I see him.

At the beginning I was ashamed to train next to him, he's Cristiano Ronaldo after all

“Even though I was already a healthy and sporty woman, today and thanks to him I feel even better.

“At the beginning I was ashamed to train next to him, he's Cristiano Ronaldo after all. But then everything changed. He is my inspiration.”

Georgina likes to surprise her partner with a traditional Spanish meat dish of lentils and chorizo sausage when she does the cooking.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s representatives were forced to rubbish reports the couple secretly married in November 2019.

Italian gossip magazine Novella 2000 claimed the couple had tied the knot in Morocco.

Several papers and magazines in Cristiano’s homeland echoed the reports but one said his last-known trip to the North African country was in May 2019 and sparked speculation they may have wed several months earlier but kept it under wraps.

Sources close to the former Juventus striker reacted by saying the report was false and said he was still a single man.

One said at the time: “This is fake news. Cristiano has not got married to Georgina.”

Georgina was accused of confusing fans after posting a selfie in a lift with a man’s jacket with a message saying: "When you steal your husband’s jacket again. Oops. I did it Again.”

Cristiano’s mum Dolores Aveiro has described Georgina as her future “daughter-in-law” in interviews.

She said in 2018 of the former shop worker, who has a three-year-old daughter called Alana Martina with Cristiano and is the day-to-day mum of his other three children: “She is the mother of my grand-daughter.

"She is a future daughter-in-law. She’s not my daughter-in-law yet. She’s a future daughter-in-law. She’s a very calm person.”
