Ronaldo de Assis Moreira was born on 21 March 1980 in the city of Porto Alegre, the state capital of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

It was in their new home where his father hit his head and drowned in the swimming pool when Ronaldo was eight. Today, Roberto acts as his manager, while his sister Deisi works as his press coordinator.

Life Journey

WoodGram proudly presents to you a full story of a football genius, who is better known by the nickname: “Gini”.

Georginio Wijnaldum’s Biography will provide you with a complete account of notable events that he has experienced since his childhood time.

There are many aspects of Georginio Wijnaldum’s Biography that I will discuss, such as his life story before fame, his family, parents, and wife (Virginia Braaf), lifestyle, personal life, and net worth, and many off-pitch facts he has.

Yes, everyone knows about his career, but few pay attention to Georginio Wijnaldum’s bio, which is actually quite interesting. And now, without further ado, let’s begin.

Ryan Gravenberch Biography, Age, Parents, FIFA 22, Career, Net Worth & Wiki

In the year 1990, Georgio Gregion Emile Wijnaldum was born on the 11th day of November. He was raised by his mother, Maureen Wijnaldum, and his father, Ramon van La Parra, in Rotterdam, South Holland.

After his parents, who are both of Afro-Surinamese descent, divorced when he was six years old, his mother moved to Amsterdam, which resulted in his father moving to England.

However, Wijnaldum decided to remain in Rotterdam and subsequently moved in with his grandmother, with whom he spent the rest of his childhood.

During Wijnaldum’s younger years, he never showed any interest in football. During his younger years, he never touched a ball or watched football on television. He always dreamed of becoming a gymnast or an acrobat.

This plan changed when Wijnaldum’s nephew asked him if he could attend Sparta Rotterdam’s opening day with him. “The Beautiful Game of Football in all its Glory” was something he didn’t believe he had just seen.

After watching a youth game, he didn’t want to live any longer. He was invited to the Sparta Rotterdam youth academy and it was then that his love for football started to grow slowly. Within a short period of time, he became a member of their youth squad.

The Dutch striker, Wijnaldum, played for Sparta Rotterdam for seven seasons before deciding to accept a new Feyenoord offer, where he ended his youth career.

He was convinced that playing for Feyenoord was better for his development as a football player and believed in Feyenoord’s vision.

During his time at Feyenoord, Wijnaldum became part of a successful generation that included the likes of Leroy Fer and Luis Pedro. The Dutch midfielder stood out as a unique talent.

‘Feyenoord’s technical director announced on 29 June 2011 that Feyenoord had reached an agreement with PSV over a transfer deal for Wijnaldum in the amount of €5 million.’

He grew up in the ranks of the team and, once again, was offered the number 10 shirt. On the pitch, Wijnaldum excelled as a leader who was popularly known for his hairstyle.

As of 11 July 2015, Wijnaldum had joined English Premier League club Newcastle United on a five-year contract, for a reported transfer fee of £14.5 million, making him the most expensive signing under the ownership of Mike Ashley.

The interest of Liverpool arose when he was considered the player of the match in a game against them when he forced Martin Skrtel into an own goal and also scored himself as part of a 2-0 victory.

They could not resist after observing that he had finished the season as their top goalscorer, so they did not hesitate to splash out £23 million on Newcastle’s table. Well, as they say, the rest is history now.

Georginio Wijnaldum is in a long-term relationship with Mirella Pereira. Gini Wijnaldum and Mirella Pereira have been together since 2017.

Before Wijnaldum began dating Pereira, Liverpool’s star was in a long-term relationship with Virginia Braaf. They have dated since they were 12 and have two children together but called it quits in early 2016.

However, later in 2016, Gini Wijnaldum started dating Mirella Pereira, as the rumors started to spread when they were seen holding hands on a couple of occasions.

You just need to look at Georginio Wijnaldum, who had been together with Virginia from the time he was twelve years old.

It is without a doubt that the full-lipped Rotterdam girl was nothing like the cliche WAG. Neither of the lovers had settled down yet as of the date of writing.

Definitely, if there is someone who is not a gold digger, it would be Ms. Braaf. Despite the fact that her football-playing husband is extremely successful, she never brags about his accomplishments.

In fact, how many football wives would choose to attend a Sunday morning church service rather than sleep in? In fact, Virginia Braaf certainly did, as she lives for God every single day. Virginia Braaf found peace in her faith after a long road toward salvation.

The life of Virginia Braaf is one of productivity and success. There is a jewelry line called “Sparkle Vermont” that she owns. On top of that, she also worked for a fitness program called The BodSquad. She used to work with drug addicts in the past, so she has worked with a lot of different people.

On her social media pages, you will not find a tsunami of duck faces, but mostly sweet photos of her husband, their children, and, of course, videos of the church service. Despite his busy schedule, Wijnaldum always finds the time to spend with his children.

Virginia, Wijnaldum’s ex-wife, gave birth to a boy named Jacian in August of 2017. Jacinta Wijnaldum gave birth to this baby just hours after he had helped Jurgen Klopp’s side book their place in the group stages of the Champions League with a 4-2 win over Hoffenheim.

It has been reported that Dutch midfielder Wijnaldum has posted the news on his social media accounts. According to him:

The wonderful news I want to share with you is that my beautiful girlfriend gave birth to our son Jacian Emile Wijnaldum at 2:22 am today 24th August 2017. I am so pleased to share this news with you. Both my girlfriend and our son are very healthy and very happy.

Reports have recently surfaced stating that Wijnaldum is of Ghanaian ancestry. A long time ago he removed the Ghanaian name “Boateng” from his surname, which he had used for a long time.

Denzel Dumfries Biography, Age, Wife, Parents, FIFA 22, Career, Net Worth & Wiki

There was a time when he went by the family name Georginio Boateng and not Georginio Wijnaldum. In the wake of his mother’s divorce, he adopted her maiden name (Wijnaldum) as his own.

In fact, the ‘Boateng’ in his name is the name of his stepfather who is related to the retired Dutch footballer of Ghanaian origin, George Boateng.

After he divorced my mother, Wijnaldum took the surname off me, since his stepfather gave it to me. Wijnaldum said once, “my mother and my original father are both Surinamese, so people should be aware of that.”

One of Wijnaldum’s younger brothers, Giliano Wijnaldum, plays for the Philadelphia Union and is one of Wijnaldum’s younger brothers.

Also, he has a half-brother, Rajiv van La Parra, who is currently playing for Huddersfield Town. He also has a younger brother, Rogerio Wijnaldum, who is an upcoming footballer. Rogerio has a great deal of respect for his older brother.

It should be noted that Wijnaldum is the cousin of former Real Madrid player Royston Drenthe. It has been a journeyman career for Renthe, as he spent time at Real Madrid and Everton on loan before playing for Reading.

Personal Life

She met her husband Chip, who shared her passion for building and design, and they launched their own programme, Fixer Upper, together (2013). Joanna announced her departure from the show in 2017. She and her husband operate Magnolia Homes, a building and design firm, Magnolia Market, a bargain supermarket, and, most recently, Magnolia Table, a breakfast restaurant that also serves lunch and supper.

Following an incident in which Chip’s former Magnolia Real Estate partner sued him for $1 million, a lawsuit surfaced sometime in April. They said Chip forced them to sell their stocks to him for $1 a share, and they didn’t discuss their intentions before selling.

Chip and his lawyers scoffed at the charges, calling them baseless. Another incident that startled everyone was Joanna Gaines’ announcement that she was leaving the programme to start a new skincare business. She shot against the reports, claiming that you can’t believe everything you read.

Joanna Gaines Education

Baylor University was Joanna’s alma mater (her husband, Chip, also attended Baylor). Although it may appear that she has a design degree, this is not the case.

According to Baylor Magazine, Joanna did an internship in New York on the show 48 Hours with Dan Rather while she was a college student.

Despite the fact that Joanna was on her way to a profession in communications, she opted to choose a different path. She quickly recognised she was drawn to design. During her trip to New York, Joanna was inspired by some of the stores she visited.

Professional Career

Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines started their firm by borrowing $5000; their first effort was to create a shop called Magnolia Market, which is one of the companies they both own in Texas, and it was there that Joanna Gaines learnt about interior design.

With over a decade of restoration expertise, Chip and Joanna Gaines were given a “Fixer Upper” show, and they recorded a pilot that aired on HGTV in spring 2014 and had 1.9 million views. “Fixer Upper” has been renewed for a sixth season. In the second quarter of 2017, it was the most-watched cable show. The show was about domestic remodelling and home design. Later, the couple declared that the fifth season would be the show’s final season since they wanted to focus on their family and children.

The name “Magnolia” came from a tale before Joanna Gaines and Chip were married. Chip Gaines enjoys picking flowers from Magnolia trees, and their company name was inspired by this gesture. Joanna Gaines has created “Magnolia Market” home décor boutique and co-owns Magnolia House bed and breakfast, in addition to refurbishing properties on “Fixer Upper” for a pair of seasons.

Joanna and Chip also own a real estate company and a construction company called “Magnolia Villas.” The pair owns a brand of high-end interior paints that retail for around $46 per gallon.

The pair documented their lives in the book “The Magnolia Story” in 2016 to give their admirers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at their lives. The book included a variety of stories and experiences ranging from hilarious anecdotes to more serious topics such as financial hardships and the difficulty to manage to be a parent with a full-time job. According to the book, Joanna is careful, but Chip is impetuous and takes risks. They refer to their relationship as a “rollercoaster trip.”

Controversies• In February 1998, De Niro was questioned if he was involved in a prostitution racket. De Niro denied the accusation and said that he would never come back to France. Although he did come to France for shooting a movie and also was the member of "2011 Cannes Film Festival".
• There have been legal issues over his property in Gardiner, New York. His trust had appealed to lower the tax payment ($6 million) and challenged the decision in Supreme Court, which they won. The local residents that were earlier sympathetic of DeNiro, started collecting money on personal level to defend the state as it was already short on funds to run the estates.

Life Journey

Robert De Niro was born in the Manhattan borough of New York City, the only child of artists Virginia Admiral and Robert De Niro Sr. His father was of Irish and Italian descent, while his mother had Dutch, English, French, and German ancestry. His parents, who had gathered at the painting classes of Hans Hofmann in Provincetown, Massachusetts, left when he was two years old after his father stated that he was g*y.

He was built by his mother in the Greenwich Village and Little Italy regions of Manhattan. His father existed nearby and remained close with De Niro during his childhood. Nicknamed “Bobby Milk” because of his pale skin, De Niro encouraged a number of street kids in Little Italy, much to the displeasure of his father.

Some, however, have continued his lifelong friends. His mother was grown Presbyterian but became an atheist as an adult, while his father had been a faded Catholic since the age of 12. Against his parents’ wishes, his grandparents had De Niro privately baptized into the Catholic Church while he was visiting with them during his parents’ divorce.

De Niro joined PS 41, a public elementary school in Manhattan, through the sixth grade. He also started acting classes at the Dramatic Studio and began his stage appearance at age 10, performing the Cowardly Lion in a school production of The Wizard of Oz.

He later moved to Elisabeth Irwin High School, the upper school of the Little Red School House, for the seventh and eighth grades. He was then admitted into the High School of Music and Art for the ninth grade, but only joined for a short time before shifting to a public junior high school, IS 71, Charles Evans Hughes Junior High School.

De Niro joined high school at McBurney School and then later, Rhodes Preparatory School. He saw performing as a way to reduce his shyness and became overwhelmed by the cinema, so he left out of high school at 16 to attempt acting. He studied acting at HB Studio and Lee Strasberg’s Actors Studio. De Niro also read with Stella Adler, of the Stella Adler Conservatory, where he was presented to the techniques of the Stanislavski system.

De Niro wedded actress Diahnne Abbott in 1976. They have a son, Raphael, a former actor who works in New York real estate. De Niro also raised Abbott’s daughter Drena De Niro from an earlier relationship. De Niro and Abbott separated in 1988. Afterward, he was in a relationship with model Toukie Smith between 1988 and 1996.

De Niro has twin sons, Julian and Aaron, superfetated by in vitro fertilization and delivered by a surrogate mother in 1995. In 1997, De Niro married actress Grace Hightower. Their son, Elliot, was born in 1998 and the couple split in 1999. The divorce was never concluded and in 2004 they repeated their promises.

In December 2011, their daughter was born via surrogate. In November 2018, it was announced De Niro and Hightower had left after 20 years of marriage. De Niro has four grandchildren; his daughter, Drena, has one child, and his son, Raphael, has three.

In October 2003, De Niro was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He experienced surgery at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in December 2003. In 2006, De Niro got an Italian passport. His citizenship was given by the Italian government despite strong opposition by the Sons of Italy, who think that De Niro hurt the public image of Italians by representing criminals. In 2012, De Niro followed the anti-fracking campaign Artists Against Fracking.

In 2016, De Niro initially recommended the addition of a controversial documentary, Vaxxed, at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. He revealed that his interest in the movie was from his personal experience with an autistic son, Elliot. The film was removed from the schedule after consultation with the festival organizers and scientific community”.

In February 2017, De Niro took part in a joint exhibition with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., chairman of the anti-vaccine non-profit Children’s Health Defense, to discuss their interests with vaccine safety. De Niro has said that he is not anti-vaccination but does question their ability.

Outside of acting, Robert De Niro is the co-founder of the extremely prosperous Nobu restaurant chain along with Nobu Matsuhisa. Today there are more than 40 Nobu spots around the world. It has been published that the Nobu empire makes several hundred million dollars in revenue every year. Robert is also a co-owner of The Greenwich Hotel in New York.

In 2017 Robert and Australian billionaire James Packer declared a planned luxury resort named “Paradise Found” which will be established on the Eastern Caribbean island of Barbuda.

In June 2019 Robert’s ex-wife Grace Hightower registered legal paperwork, as part of their continuing divorce, which gave special detail to their finances and assets.

According to Grace’s filing, Robert’s net worth is at least $500 million and that he made $250 – $300 million between 2004 and 2018 alone, much of which came from his expanding Nobu domain. Under the terms of a prenup that the two approved in 2004, grace would be owed $1 million per year for the number of years they were married, a $6 million apartment, $500,000 in cash, and half the price of their primary residence.

However, Ms. Hightower filed actions trying 50% of the actor’s fortune, pretending that he held her in the dark regarding his finances for more than a decade.

A later interpretation of the prenuptial agreement, as revealed in court documents, called for Robert to pay Grace $1 million in any year that he earned at least $15 million, which is most years. If he earned less, he would pay proportionally less to Grace.

In July 2020, as the divorce ran on, Grace filed a complaint with the court saying that Robert had illegally cut her monthly American Express allowance from $100,000 down to $50,000. De Niro’s response alleged that due to the COVID-19 crisis his income has shriveled up and his business empire is in free fall.

He reportedly had to pledge $500,000 to help cover part of Nobu’s mounting debts. His lawyers alleged that Nobu lost $3 million in April and $1.9 million in May. His lawyers also alleged that De Niro would be “lucky if he makes $7.5 million” in 2020.

Hightower’s lawyers alleged that Robert had “used the COVID pandemic. to stick it to his wife financially. I’m not a believer that a man who has an admitted worth of $500 million and gets $30 million a year, all of a sudden in March he needs to cut down by 50 percent and ban her from the house.”

The judge in the case finally concluded that reducing the Amex allowance to $50,000 wasn’t unreasonable but also managed Robert to pay Grace $75,000 to help her find a summer house since Robert is currently living in their former primary home.

From Hollywood to Bollywood: Indians that made it abroad




The term Bollywood refers to mainstream Hindi cinema – formerly known as Bombay Cinema – and the genre has now firmly crossed over into the Hollywood mainstream, too, with the cultural influences of both cinema traditions bouncing off each other to form beautiful and innovative new movies that reflect the different styles and aesthetics.

This crossover can be seen clearly in the number of Indian people in the movie industry that are making it big both in their native country and across the pond in the USA, the UK, and beyond, and we take a look at the most successful of these below.

Irrfan Khan

Hailing from Jaipur, the late Irrfan Khan was an immensely popular actor both in his home country and across the world. He can be seen in Hollywood blockbusters, including The Life of Pi and The Amazing Spider-Man, and he stars in the movie Inferno, directed by Ron Howard, which is based on bestselling author Dan Brown’s book, The Da Vinci Code.

Deepika Padukone

This actress’ career is currently at its peak in Bollywood, and she’s just taking her first steps into what will no doubt be a glittering Hollywood career, too. In terms of box office revenue and salary, Padukone is considered to be the Queen of Bollywood, and she’s just played a starring role in the Hollywood movie XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, opposite Vin Diesel.

Namit Malhotra

And it’s not all about the actors. Malhotra was behind the VFX for the movie Dune and won big at the Oscars for his work; he was awarded the prize for Best Visual Effects at the ceremony. Malhotra, originally from India, is the founder and CEO of DNEG, one of the biggest providers of visual effects in the world.

Controversies

  • He was indicted for submitting false documents to prove that he is a farmer.
  • Stardust imposed a 15-years ban on him during his peak acting years. According to his blog, he brought the idea of a National Emergency and a ban on Media. So, media took that otherwise and banned Amitabh Bachchan: means no interviews, no mention or pictures, etc.
  • In 1996, he had to face a legal battle for organizing the Miss World competition inappropriately.
  • In 2007, a Faizabad court ruled that Amitabh Bachchan was anything but a farmer – a secret most of India would have guessed but one that has landed the superstar in trouble over two messy land deals. According to the court, the actor had got himself certified a farmer by forgery; so that he could hold on to a 24-acre plot he had bought near Lonavla in Pune in the mid-1990s. Since Maharashtra laws allow only a farmer to buy agricultural land, the actor showed the Pune district authorities a certificate from the then Barabanki district magistrate, Ramashankar Sahu, saying Amitabh was a farmer because he owned farmland in the district. The court ruled that the 1993 Barabanki land transfer in Amitabh’s name was illegal.

The year 1975 proved to be an important one in his career as two of his cult movies, namely ‘Deewaar’ and ‘Sholay’ released that year. ‘Deewaar’ co-starred Shashi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, and Nirupa Roy, while ‘Sholay’ had an ensemble cast of Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, and Jaya Bachchan. ‘Sholay’ was a huge box office success and earned INR 350 million.

He won the eighth ‘Lok Sabha’ elections from the Allahabad constituency but retired from politics three years later. Amitabh returned to movies with the leading role in ‘Shahenshah’ in 1988. The movie was a hit. However, he followed it up with a string of box-office duds, such as ‘Toofan,’ ‘Jaadugar,’ and ‘Main Azaad Hoon.’

From 1990 to 1992, he acted in movies like ‘Agneepath,’ ‘Khuda Gawah,’ and ‘Hum.’ Thereafter, he once again took a break from acting. He became a producer by launching his company, ‘Amitabh Bachchan Corporation, Ltd’ (ABCL). The company produced a few box-office failures, including Arshad Warsi and Simran-starer ‘Tere Mere Sapne.’ Subsequently, the company suffered heavy losses.

The period between 2000 and 2005 saw Bachchan’s comeback as an actor as he played prominent roles in blockbuster movies like ‘Mohabbatein,’ ‘Ek Rishtaa: The Bond of Love,’ ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…,’ ‘Baghban,’ ‘Khakee,’ ‘Bunty Aur Babli,’ and ‘Black.’ ‘Black’ depicted the complex relationship between a deaf-mute-blind girl and her teacher, portrayed by Amitabh.

During the same period, the gifted actor presented a TV show called ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ (KBC), which became one of the most-viewed television shows in India. The show was adapted from the English game show ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?,’ hosted by TV broadcaster Chris Tarrant. In 2005, he lent his voice to the Academy Award-winning French documentary ‘March of the Penguins,’ which was directed by Luc Jacquet.

In the next few years, he acted in movies like ‘Sarkar,’ ‘Baabul,’ ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna,’ ‘Nishabd,’ ‘Cheeni Kum,’ and ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala.’ ‘Sarkar’ was loosely based on Mario Puzo’s bestselling novel, ‘The Godfather.’ In 2007, the celebrated actor has cast in director Rituparno Ghosh’s English language movie ‘The Last Lear.’ The movie and his performance were critically acclaimed at the ‘Toronto International Film Festival.’

FAQs

What was the reason Amitabh Bachchan & Rekha decided not to marry?

Their love story began on the sets of film Do Anjaane (1976) when Amitabh was a married man. During the initial days of their secret relationship, the couple used to meet in a bungalow that belonged to Rekha’s friend. Nobody knew about this affair between already married Amitabh and Rekha. Everything was a smooth sail until an incident happened. During the shoots of Ganga Ki Saugandh (1978), Big B reportedly lost his temper on a co-actor who was misbehaving with Rekha. After this, their affair came into the limelight and grabbed the media attention. The two denied the affair, but it is loud and clear that the two were dating each other. In one of the interviews, Silsila director, Yash Chopra confirmed their relationship. After this incident, Jaya Bachchan invited Rekha home for dinner and told her candidly that she would never leave her husband whatever may happen. And likewise, Jaya kept her promise until the very end. Rekha finally realized that she either wants to be Mrs. Bachchan or stay single.
