Former Barcelona and AC Milan footballer Ronaldinho will exchange vows with his two fiancées on a yet to be revealed date, with sources disclosing that it will take place “soon”.
Daily Star reports that Ronaldinho, 38, will tie the knot with his lovers Priscilla Coelho and Beatriz Souza.
The trio have been living “harmoniously” with the Brazilian star since December at his £5million (KSh677 million) Rio de Janeiro mansion.
Ronaldinho, who is claimed to be “adept at polygamy”, started dating Beatriz in 2016 but continued his relationship with Priscilla, which began several years earlier, the Daily Star says.
Bigamy is illegal in Brazil, and is punishable by up to six years in prison, however it is likely that a potential “wedding” would simply be a ceremony with the two women and not registered as two official marriages.
Both women are said to receive a monthly “allowance” of around £1500 (KSh203, 000) from the footballer to spend as they wish.
And it is claimed he always gives the two the exact same presents, including recently buying them matching perfume during a trip abroad together.
According to Brazilian columnist Leo Dias, the ex-Brazil midfielder proposed to Ms Coelho and Ms Souza in January 2017; and gave them both engagement rings.
According to a columnist from Brazil’s O Dia newspaper, Ronaldinho will “marry” the two women in an unofficial private ceremony inside the Santa Monica condominium, in the upmarket Barra da Tijuca district in Rio, where he has lived since 2015.
The Daily Star reports that Ronaldinho’s sister, Deisi, who is against her brother’s polygamy, has already said she would snub the wedding.
Although Ronaldinho has never publicly confirmed his relationship with the women, friends of the star reportedly treat them both as his fiancees, according to reports.
He also travels with both women to almost every event he attends.
In March this year, during a trip to Japan with his samba music band, he posted photos and a video of himself with both women to his 32million followers of his Instagram page.
Last April, family members of Priscilla were reportedly planning on confronting the star after reports emerged that he was dating both her and Beatriz.
Claiming they are concerned about Priscilla’s reputation as one of Ronaldinho’s two lovers, the friend said: “She is almost being fired from her job because of this.”
