In 2018, he entered into a €100 million contract with Juventus, an Italian professional football club from Turin. Ronaldo subsequently relocated his family to the Italian city where Alana presently resides.
Alana’s parents Ronaldo and Rodríguez reportedly met in the VIP area of a Dolce & Gabbana event. They began dating sometime in late 2016. Prior to her relationship with Ronaldo, Rodríguez was employed at a Gucci store in Madrid. She is originally from Jaca, which is a city located in north-eastern Spain. Her father, Alana’s maternal grandfather, Jorge Rodriguez, was reportedly convicted of cocaine trafficking.

In October 2018, Alana’s father was accused of rape by American model Kathryn Mayorga. According to some sources, Ronaldo had allegedly raped Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.
