Born on 22 December 1985 in Madrid, Spain, Edurne García Almagro, simply known as Edurne, is a Spanish singer, actress and TV presenter who has come to the spotlight even more since she’s become David de Gea’s partner. In this post, we’re going to delve more into her personal life.
Edurne is 168 cms tall and weighs only 55 Kgs; her breast, waist and hips sizes are 84, 61, and 86 cms respectively. With all these measurements, one can imagine that she is a slim type, as she really is. Edurne has blonde hair, green eyes - her partner,De Gea
, has blue eyes, and is of White ethnicity.
Edurne has been often seen with her long wavy hair. Her face type is oval and some say her distinct facial feature is her cheekbones. Edurne is not a smoker and his drinking habits are not known. Her favorite color is black and she has no tattoos on her body. Edurne's astrological symbol is Goat while her zodiac sign is Capricorn, opposite to Cancer. The name Edurne Means "snow" in Basque, from edur, a variant of elur meaning snow.
Edurne’s career actually started at the age of 9, when she became a member of the children's music group, Trastos. She had also a minor role in the Spanish series, Hospital Central, in 2002. Edurne was auditioned for the fourth series of Operación Triunfo and was also selected by the show’s jury, but later in the 12th live show, she was eliminated finishing in the sixth place.
In 2006, Edurne started her career as a singer and released her first studio album, titled after her own name, Edurne. "Despierta" from this album came on the fifth position on the Spanish Singles Charts; also "Amores Dormidos", and "Te Falta Veneno" both were named among the Spain’s Top Twenty in the same year. Edurne continued as a singer and till now she has released 6 albums in total. Her music actually became popular when it was compared to those of
Edurne has taken part in more than 20 TV series and shows so far, and has been also awarded the "Tanga" Girl of the Year, in 2006, Garamond Awards, in 2008, and Female Voice of the Year in 2014. She was also nominated for the Singer of the Year in 2010. Edurne was one of the four judges in Got Talent España (Spanish version of Got Talent) in 2015. She represented Spain with the song "Amanecer" in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna, but in the end finished 21st against others. Edurne also recorded and released a video of the song “Taste the Feeling” which was actually a Coca-Cola campaign for the Spanish-speaking countries.
In a 5-year relationship, Edurne Garcia andDavid de Gea
- Man Utd’s goalkeeper - are another couple not lucky enough to live together in one place, though they have kept the love among them strong despite their distance: One having to be in Spain for her job, the other having to be in England, to play as Man Utd’s goalkeeper. Despite such a distance, the couple have seen each other twice a month as Edurne makes trips from Spain to Manchester to spend time with her love.
After De Gea’s move toReal Madrid
was not realized despite an agreement between Man Utd and Real Madrid reached - an opportunity for De Ge to be near her love by moving to Spain, several rumors had it that Edurne and De Gea’s relationship was fading, however, the couple continued their relationship and really seemed to be enjoying it despite being away, proving all the rumors to be wrong, although Edurne wanted De Gea’s move to Real Madrid be completed probably because that actually cut their distance.
Edurne once talked about her relationship with theManchester United
goalee in the El Hormiguero - a Spanish television program with live audience focusing on comedy, science, and guest interviews, saying: “Whatever he decides, wherever he is, I will always support him because I believe that couples must always support each other in any situation, the important thing is that he is happy and wherever he wants to be.”
Edurne was very close to what she wanted: having De Gea nearer to her, but that did not actually happen just because the related paperwork was not submitted by Manchester United’s deal-makers before the transfer window in Spain closed, though all agreements were made for De Gea’s switch to Real Madrid on a £29 million deal. Edurne, despite her disappointment, congratulated De Gea and wrote in her Twitter account that she was happy with what had happened stressing that she wanted to remain with De Gea to the end of the world.
However, Edurne later describedManchester United
as being “uglier than back of the fridge,” a comment that provoked too much hate from Man Utd fans, although later Edurne said they had put words in her mouth. Anyway, that didn’t seem to suffice as the Man Utd spokesman, Pat Karney, responded in a statement: “The only thing Manchester has in common with a fridge is that it’s really cool. We attract millions of visitors a year who flock here for our nightlife and celebrations.”
Edurne’s zodiac sign is Capricorn, while De Gea’s is Scorpio. Based on that: When Scorpio and Capricorn make a love match, they get an opportunity to not only enjoy a loving relationship and learn the value of being a pair, but also to grow and mature as individuals. Although not the quickest to trust and share, these two Signs will discover that they can have quite a profound connection — one of friendship and deep loyalty.
The most interesting thing about the Scorpio-Capricorn love match is their determination toward shared ideas and their strong devotion to one another. They can open doors to one another’s souls and show one another new ways of perceiving and feeling.
Not a single figure all agree upon, Edurne’s wealth has been reported differently. Some like TrendCelebsNow.com say it is between $1 Million and $5 Million, some other say it is between $100K and $1 Million, and yet some other like NetworthWikia.com say it is $14 Million. One thing is for sure however, and that is Edurne’s net worth hits around millions, and that much of her income comes from her being a popular pop singer. Again concerning her fixed salary, nothing is clear. All shrug or say it is under review when it comes to Edurne’s salary.
Edurne is a former student of the Language Centre, University of the Arts London. A few years after her becoming famous in 2005, namely in 2009, Edurne decided to study English at the Language Centre of the academic center. Edurne studied a tailor-made programme of English Plus Singing for three months, taking General English in the morning with a one-to-one singing lesson in the afternoon delivered by a Language Centre tutor.
“I wanted to improve my English and be connected to the arts because I work in this world. The experience was just three months but for me it was incredible because all the teachers were so good… I'm so happy that I chose this school, it's perfect,” said Edurne about her time at the Language Centre of the University of the Arts in London.
There are a bunch of Instagram accounts associated with Edurne, but naturally only one of them is verified, meaning that it belongs to the pop singer herself. Edurne has 1.4 million followers on Instagram which is far less than the number of De Gea’s followers, namely 11 million. However, with 1768 posts on the social media platform, she is ahead of his love at least concerning the number of posts –David de Gea
has posted 460 times on Instagram.
Edurne is also present on Facebook and Twitter. On Facebook, she has 7503 followers, again far less than his love, De Gea, with 7 million followers. She has also attracted 7133 likes on her Facebook page. On Twitter, however, Edurne has many more followers, in fact, more than any of her other social media accounts, with more than 1 million followers. Again concerning the number of posts - actually tweets - on the social media platform, Edurne is ahead of her love, De Gea, this time, however, with a bigger gap: 12,209 tweets against 2127.
In January 2018, Edurne Garcia underwent a knee surgery, she didn’t reveal any information on why she needed the surgery, however, she posted a photo of her sitting with a bandaged foot on a chair seemingly in hospital on Instagram with a caption that read: “I start the year with an operation on my knee that was pending!! It has gone very well and will be like new!! Thank you all for the messages of love!”
Although Edurne is a celebrity, she always keeps an air of privacy. This means that much of her personal life is hidden from his fans and media. Nobody knows yet how she and David De Gea met or how is their life together. The only time they have been photographed has been when they are walking together. However, as a celebrity, Edurne still continues to share on social media, in fact, outside the boundaries of what she considers privacy.
Edurne has also shared his bikini photos onInstagram
, meaning that this is not a part of her privacy. In one of her photos she is in a yellow floral two-piece, and in the other she has put her sensational figure on full display posing in the turquoise shallows as she kneels in the white sand. Yet in another photo she shows off her toned physique and puts her bust front and center in a plunging swimwear.
These photos have actually and naturally attracted many likes and comments from her fans. One calls her “A goddess coming out of the sea,” the other a “beautiful mermaid” and yet another a “queen”.
Edurne was one of the four judges in Got Talent España (Spanish version of Got Talent) in 2015 alongside three other judges, namely Jorge Javier Vázquez, Jesús Vázquez, and the comedian and actress Eva Hache. Edurne wore a sexy Jessica Rabbit outfit in the show, and later posted a video of the occasion on Instagram with a caption that read: “Feeling like Jessica Rabbit for a day.”
Jessica Rabbit is actually a fictional character from the 1988 animated film 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' She is considered to be one of the most sexiest cartoonish female characters yet.
