According to Roitman in the program Team flower, the first contact was not particularly momentous. “Your first contact with Ricky Montaner was through Instagram, what did you like the least when you met him personally? Was he very different from virtual Ricky? ”Florencia Peña asked the influencer. “He contacted me on Instagram, he reacted to a story, he threw a heart at me and it worked,” he said, and immediately he was honest: “I didn’t like him, zero. In fact, I thanked him because he had seen me dance in a story, but with a long delay until he invited me to one of his shows in 2019. I met him there, but from afar ”.
It was some time later when Cupid finally did his work: “Later I met him in a restaurant, with friends. We went to a bowling alley and there I said ‘this guy is the best’. As I was in a disinterested mode, because I was in another, he entered for humor, for talent. On stage I would break it. I chatted with him and I realized that he was giving the head ”.
“When I saw him, I didn’t think I was going to marry him, but I said: ‘This kid can’t be’. Literally, since that trip, we never parted again”, Confessed Rotiman, this time on his visit to PH: We can talk. “It was very strong, something like this had never happened to me,” he added. Then, he said that the restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic made the relationship advance by leaps and bounds.
“I went to Miami for the first two weeks, I came back in February, I went again for Evaluna and Camilo’s wedding, and then the pandemic caught me. At first I stayed because they closed the borders, I found out repatriation flights and I ended up staying by choice, “he said about his decision to settle in the United States.
For her family, the actress’s decision was a surprise. “My parents at first said: ‘But social work and Covid … What are you going to do?’ But later when they saw what was happening here, which unfortunately was very serious, at least in my family, and they saw me happy in Miami and a little freer, they told me to stay and they were happy to see me happy ” .
