After carving his name permanently among football legends, Cristiano Ronaldo has also made sure no one can beat him at being the perfect boyfriend. I couldn’t have imagined the man would have more game up his sleeve after witnessing his difficult-to-beat pampering, the constant showering of expensive gifts, and the coveted lifestyle the couple enjoy. But on the occasion of Georgina Rodriguez’s birthday, she got the ultimate birthday present, one that the world will remember for a long time to come.
Ronaldo arranged for a Georgina-themed laser show on the most iconic Dubai landmark, Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The nearly 2800 feet building lit up with images of the stunning Spaniard from her upcoming Netflix show ‘I Am Georgina’, which will cover her rags-to-riches story and her whirlwind romance.
Rodriguez met Ronaldo in 2016 at the Gucci store she worked in. what followed utterly changed her life overnight. From working in a store earning $350 a week to raising a family with one of the most famous sportspeople on the planet, she has undoubtedly come a long way.
The 28-year-old pregnant with twins took over the towering Burj Khalifa, the most prominent display screen in the world at night. Her name flashed up on the tower and ended with the message ‘Happy Birthday Geo’ in giant white letters. According to Mirror.co.uk, the cost of placing a three-minute promotional ad or message on the tower’s facade is a minimum of $68,000 which is a drop in the ocean of wealth amassed by Ronaldo, who makes $108 million in remunerations and as much as $1.6m for a single post on Instagram.
Georgina posted a short video clip on her Instagram account of this grand gesture. After translation, her message read, “This is how this exciting day ends. I can’t find the words. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you @cristiano You can’t make me happier every day. Thank you @dubai, for always treating us so well and making us feel at home. Thank you to all of you who have worked to make this day so special. And thanks to all of you who are always there and rejoice for my happiness and that of my family. You are loved with all my heart.”
