The 31-year-old presenter talked in detail about her connections with the legendary footballer.
I told him no, no way because I had to work the next day – Alyson Eckmann
“I hosted Cristiano Ronaldo’s event for his new perfume. Then we became friends at the party and Cristiano invited me to his house. I told him no, no way because I had to work the next day. I knew what would happen if I went to his house,” Eckmann was quoted as saying in her video.
“And my friend, who was there with me, said: ‘Aly, you can’t say no, please. I said to Cristiano: ‘You have to send a driver to take me to my house when I say. And he said: ‘Ok, yes’. We left the party, we split up. My friend went with him, I went with his manager. We ended up at his house and had a few glasses of champagne and then, at about three in the morning, I told him I wanted to go home and he sent me with his driver. And that was it,” she added later.
Later on, Eckmann spoke about the further developments in their relationship and her conversations with Ronaldo.
“When we left his house, he asked for my number and we texted each other for a month, but it was very simple: ‘Hello how are you. What are you doing? I’m working. I’m at my house. And that’s where it stayed. I think he wanted me to invite myself to his house, but I don’t go around f***ing celebrities for the sake of f***ing celebrities,” she concluded.
