Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio in honeymoon earthquake
By thinkSPAIN Team Mon, Jul 1, 2019
CELEBRITY newlyweds Sergio Ramos and Pilar Rubio felt the earth move for them on their honeymoon – literally, they revealed on Twitter as they were due to return home.
The Real Madrid defender, 33, and his TV reporter wife, 41, had headed to Costa Rica after their lavish wedding in the former's home city of Sevilla and were still there on Tuesday when an earthquake reaching 6.7 on the Richter Scale shook the central American nation.
None of the couple's three children were with them on their honeymoon, although they did not spend their luxury break entirely alone – whilst there, Pilar and Sergio met up with the latter's football colleague Keylor Navas and his wife Andrea Salas.
Most of their trip was over before the earthquake struck, meaning they had plenty of time to enjoy sailing with dolphins, surfing, zip-lining and other adventure sports, plus visiting the natural wonders of Costa Rica – the Arenales, the Tortuguera volcano and the Monteverde nature reserve.
Neither of them – nor Navas and Andrea – has as yet given any details of what it felt like to be in the middle of a major earthquake on holiday, but Sergio left a simple message on Instagram Stories: “¡Todo ok!” ('Everything OK!') alongside a picture of him and Pilar to reassure friends and family back in Spain that they were unharmed.
They have just arrived home to start 'real life' as husband and wife, although as Sergio said on Instagram in a caption on one of their holiday photographs: “May the honeymoon that started with you seven years ago never end.”
The couple got together in 2012 and had three sons before their wedding on June 15 – the youngest of whom is not quite a year old and all three of whom were pageboys at the ceremony at Sevilla cathedral.
