Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez’s daughters are wasting no time learning Arabic since their father made a move to the Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr. Their mother shared some Instagram stories of them speaking Arabic.
Georgina posted several stories on her Instagram handle, which boasts almost 47 million followers. The stories include a video where both her daughters Alana and Eva sing a song in Arabic while Rodriguez uses Google translate. Both sing happily and appear to have a good time.
Another video of Alana shows her saying the names of the weekdays in the Arabic language again through Google translate. She said the days in clear pronunciation with great confidence, “Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday,” while Georgina gave a little giggle at the end.

How are Cristiano Ronaldo and his family adapting to Saudi Arabia?
Ronaldo has five kids, with Rodriguez being the mother of two of them, and the family moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in January after Ronaldo became a player for Al Nassr. Ronaldo signed a massive contract with the club and became the highest-paid player on the planet. Ronaldo was at Manchester United, but his contract was mutually terminated after he gave an explosive interview in November with Piers Morgan about the club’s situation and management. During the official presentation of Ronaldo at the club, his family was also present with him.
Ronaldo and his family have been seen embracing the city of Riyadh since their arrival in the Kingdom. He and Georgina were seen celebrating Valentine’s Day in a Japanese restaurant in Riyadh. Ronaldo even celebrated Saudi’s national day with the club where he sported a traditional robe and also danced with a sword.
How is Ronaldo faring in the Saudi Pro League?
Despite struggling at first losing the Saudi Super Cup semi-finals to Al Ittihad, Ronaldo soon turned it up. He scored his first goal, which was a 93rd-minute penalty to earn a 2-2 draw against Al Fateh.
Ronaldo then scored a sensational poker in a 4-0 away win at Al Wehda, showing he means business. He then assisted beautifully twice in a 2-1 victory against Al Taawoun. He then ended the month with a hat trick in a 3-0 win against Damac. All of this earned Ronaldo the Player of the Month award for February in his very first month there with eight goals and two assists.
Al Nassr then won a difficult game against Al Battin 3-1, with no goal involvement for Ronaldo. Currently, Al Nassr is top of the Saudi Pro League table. Al Nassr and Ronaldo will next face Al Ittihad away on Thursday to fight for the league’s top spot with both currently separated by two points.
