The 38-year-old football legend Ronaldinho is all set to marry his two fiancees, Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza in August. As reported by Brazil’s O Dia newspaper, the footballer proposed marriage to both of his girlfriends and now will say his vows to both of them at the same time in a private ceremony in Rio.
It is learned that both the girls, Priscilla and Beatriz, were living with Ronaldinho for a long time in his £5million Rio De Janerio mansion. The ace footballer started dating Beatriz Souza in 2016 and continued his relationship with Priscilla, whom he proposed to several years earlier. It is learned that the former World Player of the Year asked their hands for marriage in January last year and also gave them engagement rings. However, he took to his Twitter to deny such rumours. He wrote, “Do not believe in any news, the day I get engaged, I will tell you.”
Bigamy is illegal in Brazil and it is reported that instead of registering the marriages officially, it is likely that Ronaldinho will just have a ceremony with both of them. Reports also have it that the man has given an allowance of around £1,500 as pocket money to Priscilla and Beatriz. In fact, he even buys same presents for both his lady loves.
The newspaper also reports that the star’s sister, Deisi, is against her brother’s polygamy and has already said that she won’t be attending the ceremony. One of the best players of his generation, Ronaldinho has won two FIFA World Player of the Year awards and a Ballon d’Or.
Despite his denial, it is learned that the preparations for the ceremony have already started with Brazilian singer Jorge Vercillo, who is also Ronaldinho’s neighbour, is confirmed to take over the responsibility for the wedding music.
