The marriage formed by Risto Mejide, 47, and Laura Escanes, 26, has come to an end. This was announced this Sunday, September 25, by themselves on their social networks. The influencer has been the first to communicate that the relationship she had with the publicist, presenter and television jury for seven years, with whom she has a son, has ended. “I don’t like goodbyes and I’ve been writing and deleting this post 82627292 times. I don’t think it’s a farewell either because I know that, in any way, we are going to have each other forever ”, began the message that he has published on his Instagram account, in which he has 1.7 million followers . A few minutes later, she posted Ella Mejide’s own message.
“It has been seven wonderful years. Also hard. But it has been a gift to share my life with you. Love does not end. Does not die. And I will continue to love you for the rest of my days”, continues Escanes. “If I had to live all this and know what love is, it had to be with you. I imagined my whole life with you and you have made me believe in eternity. We have fulfilled dreams, created a beautiful family and created our path together. I wish people could live and feel a quarter of what we have felt. That’s love”. And he ends with: “We love you. We ask for respect in these delicate moments, for us and our family. Thanks. Always”.
For his part, his now ex-partner has published another message on the same social network: “Thank you @lauraescanes for these seven years, three months and 24 days. They have not been perfect, and even so, or maybe because of that, they have surely been the best of my life. We have been through so much together and learned so many things (many good things and others that I would have liked not to have to learn) that, before each one goes their own way, the only thing left to do is to feel very grateful for the path we have walked”.
“Because everything adds up. The good, the bad and the regular”, continues the presenter and writer, “as someone once said, it was eternal while it lasted. I just hope we’re as good an ex as we’ve been as a couple. May we each know how to find the life we want. And above all, thank you for making me Pope of Rome. That really is a love for #toelrrato ”, Mejide ends on his Instagram account, with more than a million followers.
Minutes after the announcement of their separation, each one has managed the situation in networks in a different way. While Escanes has not made any move regarding the accounts of his ex-partner at the moment, the author of Gossip and Second Aid Manual has decided to stop following the account of his daughter’s mother on Instagram. A movement that came after the presenter himself announced in his stories (publications that last 24 hours) that he was going to issue a statement, precisely that of his breakup with the influencer.
The couple began a relationship often criticized and in which few believed. They got engaged in 2015, just a few months after meeting. The massive wedding took place in May 2017 in the town of Argentona (Barcelona). The chosen setting was a 16th century farmhouse, a ceremony before 500 guests that had a great impact on social networks. The party even had its own hashtag (#toelrrato), which they have continued to use in their posts together ever since. Even, as Risto has done, in the message with which he has communicated the separation.
Two years after getting married, in 2019, they announced that they were expecting their first child. Their only daughter in common, Roma, came into the world on October 2 of that same year. Mejide was already the father of another child, Julio, now nine years old, who had his previous relationship with presenter Ruth Jiménez.
In June of this year, the couple announced a joint professional project, the podcast Cariño, pero qué dices?, in which, as Escanes herself explained, “each episode revolves around a word and how we each understand it.” ”. Mejide added that “each podcast is a real and intimate conversation,” reports Vanitatis.
The marriage has always been the target of criticism, since they were a very active couple on social networks, in addition to suffering constant controversy around the 21-year age difference between them.
