Brazilian football legend Pele is married for the third time in a private wedding.
The 75-year-old weds his girlfriend of six years, 50-year-old Marcia Cibele Aoki, in the coastal town of Guaruja Sao Paulo on Saturday, July 9, 2016. The couple was to be married two years ago but had to abandon the plan because of the football legend’s health condition.
Pele first met Aoki at a party in New York in the 1980s but began dating her after they bumped into each other in a lift in a Sao Paulo apartment block that they both lived in in 2008. Fate brought them together again in the same elevator two years later and now they are married. Pele had five children, three with his first wife Rosimeri Cholbi who he was married to for 12 years and two with his second, gospel singer Assiria Nascimento who he was with for 14 years.
