Rather unsurprisingly, Merche is also a model. Rather surprisingly, however, is the fact that Ronaldo is nine years younger than her.

American socialite Mia was 18 at the time that she was linked with Ronaldo and denies ever having romantic ties with him despite rumours of a fling between the pair, who were also close friends.

Gemma Storey

When Ronaldo had a fling with Storey, he was apparently unaware that she might be an escort or adult film star. The two purportedly hooked up while he was part of Manchester United and engaged in an orgy in a pool with four other women. Ronaldo was subsequently fined £2,940 as a result of the incident.

When: January 2007

Ronaldo started dating British model and actress Atkinson in January 2007. The relationship was short and Ronaldo denies that it ever amounted to anything serious.

Atkinson spoke about how great the relationship was but it appears that she was looking for attention as Ronaldo’s mother herself played down suggestions that anything serious happened between the two.

Ronaldo and Rodriguez were first seen together in public in November 2016. She has a wonderful relationship with Ronaldo’s eldest son Cristiano Jr, and also reportedly gets on well with his twins, that were born via surrogate in 2017.

In November 2017, Rodriguez gave birth to Ronaldo’s fourth child and the couple’s first together, a daughter named Alana Martina Ronaldo.

At the moment, it looks like she could finally be the woman who has managed to win over the heart of CR7.
