Georgina Rodriguez has told Man United star Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘You couldn’t make me happier’ in a gushing thank you message for the amazing laser show he arranged for her 28th birthday.
The footballer spent thousands to light up the Dubai skyline with Thursday night’s spectacle on the facade of Dubai’s famous Burj Khalifa tower.
The couple looked on with their children as the former shop worker’s name flashed up in neon on the landmark tower and ended with the message ‘Happy Birthday Geo’ in giant white letters above a photo of the stunning Spaniard in a glamorous off-the-shoulder black dress.

Ronaldo and his family are holidaying in the luxury Middle East sunshine destination during the player’s break from his busy football calendar.
Overnight Georgina, who celebrated the premiere of a Netflix show about her rags-to-riches life on Thursday as well as her birthday, took to social media to thank Ronaldo for his gesture.
The stunning Spaniard, who was born in Argentina but grew up in the Spanish Pyrenees city of Jaca, wrote alongside a series of photos including a selfie family pic in front of the Burj Khalifa tower with her name and face in lights: ‘This is how this exciting day ends. I’m speechless.
‘Thank you, thank you and thank you @cristiano. You can’t make me happier every day.’

She added: ‘Thank you @dubai for always treating us so well and making us feel at home. Thank you to all of you who have worked to make this day so special. And thanks to all of you who are always there and rejoice in my happiness and that of my family. I love you with all my heart.’
Georgina confirmed her presence in Dubai late on Thursday with a series of photos showing her walking up to a red rose-laden table earlier in the day on the beach which was decorated against a backdrop of red and black balloons and the number 28 in gold.
The footage she uploaded approaching the table on her Instagram showed she appeared to be suffering slightly as she walked because of the heat and her five-month pregnancy.
She was with Ronaldo’s twins Eva and Mateo and their daughter Alana Martina, all four years old. The birthday girl also showed off some of the presents she had received from Netflix.

Up to that moment it was not known for sure if she was with Ronaldo and his four children in Dubai, one of the couple’s favourite holiday destinations.
The Man United striker showed off his athletic body earlier in the week as he sipped a drink on the beach in a pair of tiny personalised bathing trunks.
Ronaldo revealed his stunning laser show gift to his long-term partner with a video he posted on social media.
He wrote in Portuguese alongside the spectacular footage: ‘Many congratulations my love’ by heart and birthday cake with candles emoticons.

The Burj Khalifa light and laser show, on the edge of the Burj Lake, is a massive draw in the luxury Middle East sunshine destination.
The iconic tower becomes the biggest display screen in the world at night-time thanks to nearly 18 miles of cables, 1.1 million pixels and 118 tons of light beams and accessories.
Recent reports put the cost of placing a three-minute promotional ad or message on the tower’s facade at a minimum of £50,000, with the price rising at weekends.
Ronaldo , owner of a £20million private jet and a fleet of expensive sport cars, can easily manage it with a net worth estimated at around £373m.
