Ronaldinho has never been someone to do things by halves.
On the pitch, his mantra was always the same: why score a simple goal when you can bang one in with an audacious bicycle kick or skilfully executed toe-poke.
It’s an ethos that helped make him the best footballer in the world for a time and, ultimately, led to his downfall with Ronaldinho forever juggling his football commitments with his love of nightclubs.
But now Ronny is ready to settle down and he’s found the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Or, rather, he’s found the women.
According to reports coming out of Brazil, Ronaldinho is to marry two women, at the same time, in a ceremony in Brazil this August. Right.
The Samba star is planning to die the knot to “fiancées” Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza this summer.
The two women have apparently been living “harmoniously” in the Barca legends £5 million Rio mansion since way back in December.
Ronaldinho first met Beatriz in 2016 and it was love at first sight.
The only trouble was that Ronny was already in a relationship with Priscilla. One that started a few years previous, in fact.
A solution was eventually reached with all three living in apparent harmony.
The deal is sweetened by the fact Ronaldinho apparently gives both of his partners a monthly allowance of £1,500 to spend as they wish.
According to Leo Dias, Ronaldinho popped the question back in January, purchasing matching engagement rings before getting down on one knee.
It’s not gone down well with everyone though. Priscilla’s family are said to be upset while Ronaldinho’s sister Deisi, is skipping the wedding.
It should be stressed that Ronaldinho has never officially confirmed the relationships, though his social media output suggests otherwise.
