I saw the trailer to Soy Georgina and I knew I had to watch it. Anything that involves Cristiano Ronaldo automatically peaks my interest. Georgina Rodriguez is in a relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, world famous soccer player. The series follows Georgina and details her rags to riches story.
Besides being Cristiano’s girlfriend and giving birth to 1 of his 4 children, I didn’t know much about her. A point that she makes by saying people know her name but few know who she really is. She met Cristiano in her early 20s while working retail at Gucci. From there, after a couple of encounters, they started dating and her life transformed into what it is today. A normal person turned social media influencer and mother of 4. I found their story to be similar to all those fanfiction stories I would read back in the day. Girl meets the boy of her dreams but he’s rich and powerful and she is just trying to make ends meet.
I enjoyed seeing her relationship with his children, especially the oldest one. As the oldest, he knows that Georgina is not his biological mother but she appears to be heavily involved in his life. It’s different from Cristiano’s twins, who she has been raising since they were born. She claims them as her own and I got the impression that she fell into that motherly role easily. I bet that’s one of the reasons why Cristiano loves her.
I saw her reality show as more of a docuseries. It was very curated with little conflict. I didn’t mind that Cristiano wasn’t involved in the series like one would expect. It’s her name on the show after all. It’s a small behind the scenes look at the woman behind the Instagram profile. I appreciated the bloopers at the end because it showed that although polished she doesn’t take herself too serious and is self-aware.
