Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos has announced he will marry his model and TV presenter girlfriend Pilar Rubio next June.
The couple told a Spanish TV programme the pretty brunette works on that they would tie the knot on June 15 in Seville.
The couple, who have three children together, made the announcement on Antena 3 show El Hormiguero during an appearance by the footballer.
Ramos, who left Seville to join Real Madrid in 2005 when he was just 19, joked after revealing the wedding location, said: ‘We’ve decided to get married in Seville because we’ve been in Madrid for so long now, it means there’ll be less people. It’s going to be a special wedding because we’re special.’
He added: ‘It’s a very special moment for us after being together for so long and forming such a fantastic family with three little ones who fill our lives with passion.
‘We felt it was the ideal moment and we wanted our children to enjoy it because when they were younger it’s not something they would understand so much.’
The 32-year-old also revealed they would ask their guests to leave their mobiles and cameras at the door of the still-secret location, so the celebs attending the after-party could enjoy themselves without fear of being filmed or photographed.
The wedding after-party is expected to take place at a private estate near the city of Seville with Spanish media speculating the religious ceremony will be at Seville Cathedral.
Pilar, 40, revealed the date of the union and hinted a world-famous singer may join them to perform after they become man and wife by adding: ‘There’s going to be something very big but I can’t say what.
‘I’m as excited about putting on my wedding dress as I am about what’s going to happen afterwards.’
The star couple – dubbed the Posh and Becks of Spain when they started dating in September 2012, have three sons – Sergio, four, Marcos, three, and Alejandro, one next month.
Ramos’ ex include a former Miss Spain who is now married to Cadiz star Sergio Sanchez.
