34- year- old attacking defender of Real Madrid Rudy Fernandez lives in a happy marriage with the famous 38-year -old Spanish model Helen Lindes. Rudy and Helen now have two children: son Alan (turned 3 in December) and daughter Aura (born in may 2019).
Their affair began under very unusual circumstances. In 2011, Fernandez met the Miss Spain 2000 titleholder over the phone. Rudy called the girl to discuss cooperation with her on one of the charity projects, but the conversation was not limited to this topic. A whirlwind romance ensued, but the couple only got married in the summer of 2015, when Rudy returned from the NBA and settled in Madrid for a long time. Fernandez proposed to Lindes, following all the traditions: when presenting the ring, Rudy even went down on one knee.
For the ceremony, the couple chose one of the most romantic castles in Majorca – La fortales, which has been decorating the Punta Avancada Peninsula in Pollensa since the 17th century. The wedding was attended by many Spanish celebrities: basketball player Pau Gasol, TV hosts Raquel Revuelta and Raul Gracia, actress Amaya Salamanca, models Macarena Martin Robles and Lorena van Heerde, comedians Dani Martinez and cancho Rodriguez, parents Rudy Maite Farres and Rodolfo Fernandez, the groom’s sister basketball player Marta Fernandez and many others.
Rudy and Helen’s marriage does seem extremely solid. Fernandes at the start of his career was distinguished by a provocative game on the court, trying to get the opponents out of themselves with various dirty tricks. After starting a relationship with Lindes, Rudy gradually settled down and became much more reserved.
“Thanks to the aggressive way of playing on the court, I have achieved everything in my career. But I’m only like that when I’m playing. I don’t go out to play to hurt my colleagues. I go out to win. It is true that I used to go a little over the edge, although some people also behaved badly towards me. It was a pleasure. At home, the opposite is true. I am quite calm in the family circle, my son laughs at me. I am very attached to children and sentimental. I’m really taken to live by Disney cartoons. Every time I watch “the Lion King”, I cry after the death of the lion-father, ” Fernandez admitted in an interview xlsemanal.com.
In addition, Fernandes became more serious outside the venue-thinking about the future of the family. In July 2014, a few months before the wedding, together with a group of businessmen led by Manuel Campos Guallar and Abel Matutez Jr., as well as tennis player Rafael Nadal and Pau Gasol, he co-founded the restaurant Tatel, which is one of the most popular food establishments in Madrid.
For fans of European basketball (and partly the NBA), Rudy Fernandez is a well — known personality. But in Spain, his wife, Helen, is much more recognizable.
Helen always supported Rudy on the basketball court whenever possible. Recently, she began to take the children to their father’s games often. Three-year-old Alan has been watching Real Madrid matches live for a long time. 10-month-old Aura decided to take to the game with the participation of his father only in early January of this year. Fernandez was clearly inspired, and he threw as many as 7 three- pointers into the Valencia ring.
