Giannina Maradona is the youngest daughter of the Argentinian legend, Diego Maradona. She was born in Buenos Aires on May 16, 1989, so if you like to know
Giannina Maradona age
exactly, it’s 31 years and 7 months as of now (December 16, 2020). She was born five years after the marriage of her parents - Diego Maradona married his wife, Claudia Villafane, actually in 1984.
Giannina has a sister, named Dalma, who is two years older than her. You can see both of them as a child in the photo above; Giannina is actually the one on the left in both photos, and the other as you can guess is Dalma, her two-year-older sister.
Unfortunately not much is known about
Giannina Maradona childhood
. For example we don’t know what elementary school she attended or if she had any special hobby or interest as a child. They say she is a shy person and does not reveal much about herself.
You know for sure who one of Giannina Maradona parents is! The legendary Argentinian footballer, Diego Maradona who recently passed away at the age of 60. But what about Giannina’s mother? Her name is Claudia Villafane and when she married Diego Maradona she was a businesswoman. They were actually neighbors in 1976 and knew each other long before they got married in 1984.
Diego Maradona and Claudia Villafane’s marriage only lasted for 10 years until 2004 that they got parted away. Maybe that was because of the extramarital affairs Maradona had? Maybe, but that’s not for sure considering that they were still friends after they got divorced.
They say Claudia took on the producer job around 2003 and produced the play, Pijamas, in 2003 and has been the producer of a few TV programs including The Night of the No. 10 from 2005 on. It is also noteworthy here to mention that the divorce of
Giannina Maradona parents
was not a happy incident for her, though her sister, Dalma, thought that that was the best solution for all of them.
Other than Dalma, Giannina has 8 other siblings, in fact, half-siblings who are the results of her father’s extramarital affairs. Giannina once joked about her 8 half-siblings saying: “Just three more needed for the team of 11. You can do it!”
So, who are these 8 children Maradona had outside his marriage? They are Diego Junior, Jana, Joana, Lu, Javielito, Santiago Lara, Diego Fernando who is the result of Maradona’s affair with Veronica Ojeda, and Diego Sinagra who is the result of Maradona’s affair with an Italian model named Cristiana Sinagra. You see, Giannina is right, only three left to make a team of 11!

Giannina Maradona body measurements
, we should say she is 167cm tall and weighs 58kg. A slim type, although that doesn’t look much that way in some of her photos. As for other Giannina Maradona body measurements, there is not much information at hand, except that her shoe size is 5. But we don’t know for example what her chest or hips size is.
Giannina Maradona has dark brown eyes and hair as you can see in her photo above. As for her tattoos, we should say she has two tattoos - at least that is what has been revealed from her photos. One of these tattoos, as you can see, is a woman holding her head with her hand as you see in the photo above, and the other the name of her son, Benjamin, which is tattooed on the inside of her wrist.
They say Giannina’s relationship with her father, Diego Maradona, was a bittersweet one. They liked each other and not; liked each other because they were daughter and father, and not because of Maradona’s behavior toward her and his family.
One such behavior was when Maradona charged his ex-wife with the theft crime when he said on a live TV show in Canal America in 2015 that his wife, Claudia Villafane, had stolen $9 million from his hard-earned money and had bought seven luxurious houses for herself in one of the skyscrapers in Miami. And when Giannina stood by her mother in the case that her father had charged her with, Maradona accused her of being involved in the scam. He even took one step further and called for Giannina to be jailed for that.
What was Giannina’s reaction? She said she had seen even worse behavior from her father and, like always, she forgave him. She even appeared as a guest in one of the episodes of her father’s weekly TV show, the Night of the Number 10.
And just one year before the death of Maradona in 2019, Giannina showed how much she cared for her father by commenting on social media: “He is not dying because his body has decided so, he is getting killed from the inside and does not realise it. I do not believe in the parameters of normal, but that is far from the reality of what he deserves. Pray for him. Please! Thank you!”

Delving more into facts about Giannina Maradona, let’s talk about Giannina Maradona husband or better said ex-husband. If you have looked at the title of this post, you’ll surely know that the current Manchester City striker,Sergio Aguero
, is Giannina’s ex-husband.
The couple actually met in 2008 in a party when still Sergio Aguero played for Atletico Madrid. They got soon married and also soon gave birth to a child: Benjamin Aguero Maradona who was born just a year after his parents met in 2009 - actually on February 19, 2009, in Madrid.
Diego Maradona was by his daughter, Giannina, when his grandson was born. At the time, Aguero was 20 and still playing for the La Liga club, Atletico Madrid. Unfortunately, Giannina and Sergio’s life together did not last for long, and they finally divorced in 2012. There is no information concerning why they just got parted, but whatever the cause, Giannina took the custody of her child and moved back to Argentina, while Aguero had to stay in England to play for his newly-joint team,Manchester City
The divorce took its toll on Aguero, too, as he said once to the Argentinian newspaper, Ole, that it had been gut-wrenching for him to separate from his son, however, he also said that it was a new phase in his life and he had to adopt to it. And what happened to the couple after they divorced? Did they date or marry another person? As for Ginnina it’s not known and it’s not revealed, but by high probability, she’s not yet married or has dated anyone.
And what about Aguero? He has dated a handful of women after his separation from Giannina. In fact, right after his separation from Giannina, Aguero dated an Argentinian singer named Karina Tejeda who, just like Aguero, had ended her first marriage. Then he dated an Instagram star named Zoe Cristofoli who is famed for the tattoos that cover a major part of her body, and after that another footballer’s daughter named Taylor Ward with whom he also soon broke up. Since 2019, Aguero has been dating another Instagram star named Sofia Calzetti. As far as we know, the two are still together.
And what was Diego Maradona’s reaction to her daughter’s divorce? Maradona called Aguero a wimp on social media following his daughter’s divorce, and yet another interesting thing: In a picture that Maradona’s lawyer shared later, he could be seen in his house with a photo of Aguero hanging on the wall on which Aguero’s face had been blacked out. This probably means this man - we mean Aguero - has no place anymore in Maradona’s family.

, signed his jersey. Maybe that’s why he’s a fan of Boca Juniors? Maybe, but not for sure. Anyway, his mother, Giannina, thanked the Argentinian footballer saying: “Thank you for making my son so happy. I’ve never seen him so nervous and focused. Grateful to you forever.”
