Susana Werner used to date Ronaldo, but her relationship with O Fenomeno did not last longer than two years. But she is not in the hottest football wags conversation as an ex-romantic partner; she became Brazilian legend Julio Cesar’s wife. Let’s find out who Susana Werner is and how she came to the life of the iconic Brazil and Inter Milan goalkeeper’s life.

When she was 17, she tried out for the soap opera “Cara e Coroa” on Globo and became famous for her role in the show’s opening sequence, which featured her scuba diving between corals and mirrors. Many years later, she recreated that scene in late 2017 in a social media post.

After her telenovela debut, she went on to star in Malhaco, Donne in Bianco, Vila Madalena, Deus E Brasileiro, and Sete Pecados, among other telenovelas and movies.

How Susana Werner And Julio Cesar Met?

On a podcast, Susana Werner told the story of her first meeting with her husband, Julio Cesar. The duo met for the first time when Julio appeared as a guest in a sports show Susana Werner used to host. She admitted that she did not know anything about the Flamengo keeper, but she soon realised that she had met a gem of a person. 

While talking to him, Susana realised she already knew Julio’s father, a police officer who works at the airport. In the following months, both families came closer as Susana and Julio pledged to spend their lives together.

Susana gave up her career by travelling with her husband to Italy, England, and Canada as Julio would play for Inter Milan, Queens Park Rangers, and Toronto FC. After his retirement, the couple now lives in Lisbon, Portugal.

Julio Cesar was not the first Selcao member to fall in love with Susana. Between 1997 and 1999, she had a two-year romance with Ronaldo Nazario de Lima, who is seen as one of the best forwards to have ever graced the game. 

Ronaldo became an admirer of Susana watching her in the Brazilian soap opera Malhaco. He had reached out to her and requested to appear as a guest actor in the show. According to reports, Ronaldo asked her out on the set of the show, and they went on a two-year relationship until 1999. 

Susana’s rumoured affair with a Brazilian TV journalist is one of the hypotheses put up to explain Ronaldo’s meltdown an hour before their final match against France in the 1998 World Cup. Together they attended a promotional event in Basel, Switzerland, in May of 1999, when she was still his fiancée. However, the couple broke up later that year.


Susana Werner and Julio Cesar’s Wedding 

Susana Werner and Julio Cesar got married on May 26, 2002. Cesar was still an unknown entity in the football world. So, he only had a little money lying around. On the other hand, Susana was at the peak of her career. In a 2021 talk show, the duo revealed that Susana had borne the entire cost of their wedding ceremony. 


Susana Werner’s Net Worth

Susana Werner’s net worth in 2022 is approximately £8 million. 

Susana had a successful modelling and TV career in the late ’90s and early 2000s. However, she decided to leave the glamorous world after settling with Julio Cesar. But she still has a career. Susana owns Queen’s Life, one of Portugal’s biggest nail salon chains. Many A-list celebrities have visited Queens Life outlets, and Julio sometimes drops by to get his nails shinier. Susana also has a clothing brand. She occasionally models for her store. 


Susana Werner: Armed Robbery 

Susana Werner fell victim to a late-night robbery in 2013 in Fortaleza, Brazil. She later tweeted that some young men stopped her car. They did not harm her physically; all they wanted was her belongings. They held her at gunpoint and took away her valuable belongings. However, they did leave the car. 

She relocated to Lisbon with her family the year after. Susana insists she still loves Brazil as it’s her home country. But she feels safer living in Portugal as the cultures are vastly similar, but there is greater security of life. Susana and Julio feel comfortable in Portugal, and it doesn’t seem like they will be moving back to Brazil permanently again. 


Susana Werner And Julio Cesar Children 

Susana Werner and Julio Cesar have a son and a daughter together. 

Susana was already pregnant with the couple’s first son when she married Julio. A few months after their wedding, Julio Cesar and Susana Werner welcomed Cauet, their first child. Their second child Giulia was born in Italy only a few days after Julio Cesar became an Inter Milan player. 


Final Words 

Susana Werner did not blink an eye to let go of her career to be with her loving husband. She was in the heyday of her career when she left modelling and acting, but she doesn’t regret it. Susana is still a beautiful woman who also happens to be a successful entrepreneur.
