James Rodriguez and his 14-month-old daughter were captured on video doing the victory dance that became one of the highlights of the World Cup. The priceless clip was posted by the striker on Instagram for all to see.
For James Rodriguez — or just James as he likes to call himself — the last few weeks have been a dream come true after successfully participating in the 2014 World Cup and taking Colombia to the first quarterfinal in its history. Now, the newest member of Real Madrid, the Rodriguez family is moving to a different country to start a new phase in their lives.
Rodriguez, who is married to Daniela Ospina — the sister of Colombia’s goalie, David Ospina –, expressed his desire to play for Los Blancos, while competing in the World Cup with Colombia. His dream came true, when he was signed to a $108 million, six-years deal that will keep him in Madrid with the current UEFA Champions League winners.
James Rodriguez’s little daughter, 14-month-old Salome, couldn’t travel to Brazil to cheer on daddy and his incredible performance, which earned him the Golden Boot, but she watched him dance on TV. The 23-year-old and his Colombian teammates captured the world’s imagination with their style and celebratory dance and apparently Salome Rodriguez was paying attention.
The Colombian sensation is obviously ga-ga about his 14-month-old daughter as it is plainly clear from his posts on Instagram, where the little one is featured often. The most recent one shows the cutie wearing daddy’s new #10 Real Madrid jersey, which reportedly flew off the shelves at the tune of 345,000 sold in the first 48-hours after James Rodriguez was signed with the club.
Rodriguez, his wife Daniela, and 14-month-old daughter Salome have become the focus of the press ever since James’ success at the World Cup, and we can expect to see a lot more of them in the near future. Real Madrid must get back some of the money they dished out in the multi-million dollar deal, and his young family is the perfect vehicle for that goal.
Now that all the excitement of the World Cup and his signing with Real Madrid is over, it’s time to get to work. For James Rodriguez, his wife, and young daughter, it’s the beginning a new life and priceless experiences. In the meantime, you can follow James and his family on social media.
