It has been quite a few years now since British actress Gemma Atkinson was in a relationship with Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo but it seems that there are still plenty of people who are interested in the brief romance. During a recent interview, Gemma was reminiscing about dating the Real Madrid superstar and it was nice to hear about his more human side.
It was way back in 2007 when Gemma Atkinson and Cristiano Ronaldo started dating, with the footballer still playing for Manchester United, while she had just left the UK soap Hollyoaks. Speaking about their first date together, Gemma revealed how they just chilled at her house and watch TV together, which she really enjoyed at the time.
Atkinson explained, "We went to my house and drank cups of tea and watched Only Fools and Horses. Genuinely. I don’t know if he’s into it now but he seemed to enjoy it." It makes for much better than the stories about his huge ego and cheating on supermodels.
These days both of them have moved on and Gemma Atkinson is working hard on her role in Emmerdale, as well as working hard on her body, while she is also in a strong relationship. Cristiano Ronaldo is more into himself than any woman on the planet, and it was recently rumoured that he could be set to move to France in the Summer, to replace Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic at champions Paris Saint Germain.
