Soccer ace Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend reveals her less than healthy smoking habit  
Last updated at 14:06pm on 14th April 2008

It looks like Cristiano Ronaldo's Spanish girlfriend isn't quite as classy as his performances on the pitch for Man Utd.
His new girl, Spanish model Nereida Gallardo, comes complete with the WAG orange tan, and a less than healthy smoking habit.
Nereida, 24, was seen at United's winning game yesterday, after which the couple went out with the 23-year-old Portuguese star's family for a meal near his Cheshire home last night.

Bad habit: Ronaldo's girlfriend, Spanish model Nereida Gallardo has a less than healthy smoking habit

Ronaldo, who once dated jungle babe Gemma Atkinson, has been seeing Nereida since January.
He flies the raven-haired pin-up from her home in Mallorca to watch him in action for United.
A friend of brunette told The Sun: "She's totally smitten and so is he.

"Their relationship is looking pretty serious."

Ronaldo appears to have settled down after last year's scandal when he reportedly strayed off-side with five call girls in a wild night at his home in Cheshire.

Ronaldo shot injures fan

A GRANDFATHER of six is nursing a broken wrist after he tried to stop a power-shot from football star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Boro fan Fred Harrison, 68, was enjoying last weekend’s match between Middlesbrough and Manchester United when a miscued strike from Ronaldo came flying straight towards him.

Fred’s quick reactions enabled him to get his hand to the ball, but he broke his wrist in the process.

Fred, from the West Park area of Hartlepool, said: “We were sitting in the third row and my son joked to me ‘We’re in the line of fire here’. I didn’t think he would be proved right.

“As soon as it left Ronaldo’s foot, I could see where it was going. I had my glasses on, so I automatically put my hands up. It was a great save which probably Mark Schwarzer couldn’t even match but it was hit so hard it broke my wrist.

“When it hit me I said ‘That was a good one’. The ball was travelling at an unbelievable speed. I only just got my arm up in time otherwise I would probably have been knocked out.”

Fred, who was at the game with his 40-year-old son Kevin, forgot all about his dramatic shot-stopping moment until after the match when his wrist began to swell up.

But it was not until Tuesday that he chose to visit the University Hospital of Hartlepool where staff confirmed that it was actually broken.

Fred, who is married to Edith, 68, said: “They all found it quite amusing and I guess it isn’t something that happens every day.

“I hold no grudges against Ronaldo. He is an amazing player, probably the best in the last decade.

“If I was going to get hit by anyone’s shot I am glad it was Ronaldo’s and not a player I don’t like.”

Ronaldo, who had to retake a penalty against Arsenal yesterday, was not available for comment this morning but a spokesman for the club said: “Maybe Arsenal would have been better off with this chap in goal yesterday for the penalty that Jens Lehmann failed to save twice!

“Cristiano would be very sorry about his broken wrist if he knew about it.”

A Middlesbrough spokesman said: “We have no idea how fast the ball was travelling, but everyone in football appreciates how well Ronaldo can strike a ball.”

The match finished 2-2 and the club has sent Mr Harrison a signed shirt to help cheer him up.

Don't get upset, then I will get upset!
My principal always say: "To kiss a smoking woman is the same as to lick the ash-tray"
Actually I just can say - poor Ronaldo! LOL

*sighs* All these celebs, they have to have some bad habit or the other, don't they? Not that it matters, but wouldn't it be nice if for once a footballer got together with someone who was nice and normal, with no bad habits? Oh well, it's not like they are all angels themselves, so they probably make a good pair.

But I think that pic is rather cute. He's looking as gorgeous as ever(I especially love the white shirt!) And she's pretty nice too. It's utterly amazing how I feel absolutely no envy towards her, there must be something wrong with me!

I think I'm the only one that likes is ok with her?^^; I suppose I expected worse from him and/or maybe it's because I despised Gemma that much. LOL.XP Ew, I wish smoking ceased to exist, but they're still mad cute together to me.

I don't anvy her and I'm not jealous. And they look cute together on that pic!!
But I don't like her, I don't know why. I would not like her even without Ronaldo.
And really poor and happy (at the same time) grandpa Fred...
“If I was going to get hit by anyone’s shot I am glad it was Ronaldo’s and not a player I don’t like.”
Omg, I'd tell the same LOL

Awww I'm glad they are happy. Though he mentioned in his book about how his worst pet peeve is smoking and how he makes Nuno stand outside to smoke. Wonder if he'll break her of that habit pretty soon (hopefully!)

The poor guy with the broken wrist omg!

I thought he was really anti-smoking? I was just reading about that in Moments earlier, coincidentally.

And poor old Fred!

well, he's hardly going to date a girl for her charming personality, though we can all dream. she's cute enough, although i hate the outfit - and the cancer stick.

I say this before, but I'll say it again. Ronny needs to re-evaluate his type in girls!

As for grandpa Fred, I'd say the same. Say if it was Drogba's shot that injured me, I'm so gonna go after him.haha!

Ronny needs to re-evaluate his type in girls!

Sometimes I wonder whether he just dates these type of girls because he's young and "havin' fun"...I feel like he's got this "no strings attached" mentality when it comes to girls so he doesn't care about the fact they may have posed nude for tabloids, are prostitutes, engage in orgies, and whatever other things we hear about them.

I guess he is, but I hope to see him one day walking with a girl who's somewhat 'normal.' I don't know I care too much for the guy, so I'm always looking for his wellbeing. (I'm weird, I know.haha)
