19-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal insists his life hasn't changed much after marrying his long-time girlfriend Xisca Perello on October 19, 2019. Nadal, 33, and Perello had been in a love relationship since 2005 before they tied the knot last October.
"Honestly not, we have been together since 2005, so 15 years together and a wedding really don’t change much and honestly after the wedding I was not able to give much time at home doing married life," Nadal said, per rockingcelebrity.com.
Nadal and Perello got married in a private ceremony held at La Fortaleza, which is reportedly the most expensive property in Spain. A number of high profile guests were among those 350 who attended the wedding as former King of Spain Juan Carlos I was also at the wedding.
"Honestly, we didn’t want to create a show off with pictures everywhere with the press. We just tried to do a private event with the people that we want it," Nadal said. "Everything was fantastic, was great that people respect it.
We have been a very normal couple since the beginning trying to avoid things in terms of being very proactive together on the press or this stuff. Just trying to maintain our private lives, away from all these media attention and our wedding was following the same."
