Brazilian football legend Ronaldo is off the market again after marrying his long-term girlfriend Celina Locks in an intimate wedding ceremony. 

The two-time Ballon d'Or winner and his 33-year-old bride said their 'I Do's' at the weekend during a gorgeous ceremony held in Ibiza, Spain. 

Celina took to Instagram to share a picture from their big day. 

"Today we bring our families together for an intimate religious celebration and thus marks the beginning of a week of many celebrations," she wrote in Portuguese. 

The picture was taken as the newlyweds exited a church in Es Cubells. Ronaldo reportedly owns a house in the southwest part of the island. 

The bride's cream-coloured dress was designed by French fashion brand Jacquemus. She also wore Tiffany & Co. earrings. "Perfection," Celina said about her dress. 

Ronaldo, whose full name is Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, wore an off-white linen suit for the wedding.

Some of Ronaldo’s former teammates were invited to the wedding. Former Real Madrid star Julio Baptista was spotted at the church ceremony. 

Ronaldo proposed to Celina in January this year during a trip to the Caribbean. 

The couple has reportedly been dating for more than seven years. This is the football star's third wedding. Ronaldo's first wife, Milene Domingues, left heart emojis under Celina's picture. 

She also congratulated the couple when they announced their engagement in January. "I'm happy for you. God bless and protect you always. Long live love," she commented on a picture Celina shared.  

Milene, who is also a retired Brazilian football player, is the mother of Ronaldo's eldest son Ronald. The 23-year-old currently works as a DJ. 

Ronaldo was also married to Maria Beatriz Antony, with whom he shares daughters, Maria Sofia and Maria Alice.

In 2010, a DNA test revealed that he was the father of a five-year-old boy named Alexander.

Celina has a close relationship with all four of Ronaldo's children. She has been pictured at some of their birthday parties.
