The story of the Argentine sports journalist who fell in love with a Real Madrid star


Mia Bonino met Federico Valverde through social networks and that's where love arose. They were already parents to Benicio and now they are expecting their second child.

A crush on social networks, intertwined messages and the incipient feeling of wanting to meet that person behind the keyboard:

this is how the love story began between the sports journalist from Quilme, Mina Bonino, and the Real Madrid star Federico Valverde


It all goes back four years when

instagram suggestions put their names on the road and started following each other


In a sudden decision and with which her mother did not agree too much, Mina

Bonino traveled to Madrid to meet Valverde and stayed with him for five days


As the experience was good, he made a second trip to the Spanish capital, this time to share two weeks with the

Real Madrid midfielder who also represents the Uruguayan soccer team internationally

Gone are some of Mina's doubts regarding age - she is five years older than her husband - and

the love story grew until Benicio was born, the first child of the couple

who is currently expecting another.

As Bonino explained at the time, Benicio's labor was very extensive: “

After 14 hours of labor, with the last three very difficult, I am convinced that one draws strength from where one does not have when bringing a child into the world

: all the pain it was worth it,” he wrote on Instagram. 

The journalist is currently six months pregnant and has just boasted of her "tummy" on social networks,

detailing that everything is going well, although in recent months she and her partner have suffered a lot due to some complications that have arisen.

Some media, maliciously,

came to report that Mina had lost her pregnancy

, something that was not true and that at the time she could not deny on social networks due to the complicated process she was going through. 


Recently news came out that I had lost a pregnancy. I was not able to deny it because it was what we believed would happen

. It was incompatible with life. We prepared ourselves for a month for the worst. As the pregnancy was very advanced, we had to confirm it with the test.

After having cried for a whole month, having mourned and while I had my second child in my belly, the least expected news came to us: the baby is fine,

everything is normal. We still haven't processed it, it was a very difficult month and this is starting over," Mina wrote on her Twitter at the beginning of February.

Mina Bonino is 29 years old

, was born and lived her entire adolescence and youth in Quilmes, graduated as a sports journalist at DeporTEA and

worked at TyC Sports, América TV and Radio La Red


When she met Valverde, she decided to leave everything and settle in Spain to start a family there. 

She is a fan of River Plate and when she is in Argentina she is usually seen supporting the Millionaire at the Monumental

and it is even common to see her at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo when there is a FIFA date, or Qualifiers, supporting her husband when he dresses as "Celeste "with his son Benicio.
