Tennis legend Rafael Nadal all set to marry Xisca Perello, girlfriend of 14 years
Rafael Nadal is off the market. It’s not just the game that is keeping the tennis sensation busy. According to an exclusive report in the HELLO! Magazine, Rafael Nadal officially acknowledged that he ‘secretly’ got engaged to his girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello, fondly called Xisca, after 14 long years of dating. The report further revealed that it was during their vacation in Rome in May 2018 when Rafa proposed to her. In the past, the sportsman opened up to HELLO! Magazine and disclosed that he would love to make babies with Xisca.
Nadal said, “Obviously, I have the intention of forming a family. I love children and I would like my children to do what they like.” Xisca often makes it a point to travel across the globe and attend Rafael’s tournaments in order to cheer him on from the stands. She also supported him in Melbourne during the recent Australian Open where Rafael was defeated by the seven-time Australian Open title winner Novak Djokovic. However, the loss didn’t break Nadal’s confidence as he promised to bounce back stronger.
30-year-old Maria Perello is an insurance worker and business graduate. She was also associated with the Rafa Nadal Foundation charity, as a project director. Reportedly, the couple is all set to tie the knot during autumn this year in a private ceremony on the Spanish isle of Mallorca. Our heartiest congratulations to this beautiful couple!
