According to La Tercera, Marcelo Rios got married to Kenita Larrain yesterday in a secret ceremony without any fuss. Here's a machine translated article -

The couple left last night heading for United States to pass her honeymoon

"Kenita" Larraín and Ríos married: We are "happy"
It dates edition: 08-04-2005
Cristián Farías


"Kenita" and Ríos yesterday in the airport, after marrying for the civilian and before leaving to honeymoon United States. The couple confirmed that she married secretly.


In little less than six months sealed their relationship
A short and intense courtship

The sentimental history of "Kenita" Larraín and Marcelo Ríos ran last year in parallel form from the. The model canceled her marriage with Iván Zamorano in February of 2004 and one month later, Ríos received the petition of nullity on behalf of his former wife Giuliana Sotela, the one that you confirmed in August.

From both events, neither Larraín neither Ríos they were seen in couple, until the model interviewed him in November for the Confidential section that had in the morning one Alive the Morning, of Channel 13.

Then, a relationship that he/she acquired serious and intense tone in little time began. From traveling together for the world until the strong public defense that made the former tennis player then toward its girlfriend - during the Festival of Vineyard of the Sea - when she was victim of a joke in the program The one Moved.


They married secretly, without warning to anybody - not even to the friends with those that ate the previous night - and looking for to move away from the exhibition mediática. María Eugenia Larraín and Marcelo Ríos admitted at Third o'clock, little before leaving honeymoon to San Francisco, United States that we marry and we are happy". The civil ceremony was carried out in hours of yesterday's afternoon and then the couple left immediately to the airport, where they approached the airplane that would leave last the 20 hours.

The boyfriends came having planned the ceremony for days secretly and this finally was carried out yesterday at the 17.30 hours in the department that the model possesses in street Martin of Zamora, in The Counts. The place was adorned with more than 40 rosy roses and ivory, in different arrangements that the boyfriends made during the day.

The only sign that something you was drifting in the model blond's home it was the arrival of the flowers and that Ríos had taken out his girlfriend's mascot and it had taken it to his department of single. Until the witness arrived: Mario Larraín, brother of "Kenita", and Alicia Mayorga, mother of the former number one of the tennis. Only with them and the official of the present Civil Registration they sealed their commitment before the law.

And in spite of the seal with which everything was thought, at 18.30 o'clock the frontis of the building of "Kenita" had already become the center of the press of the Chilean heart, alarmed of the connection for sources of the Civil Registration. Cameras and photographers hoped the newlyweds appeared for the door, what happened newly when they retired of the building on board the former tennis player's van. In spite of the expectation, they decided not to stop and to follow their road heading for the airport. Then, the couple began a trip in caravan toward the airport. To the front, the new marriage and after them cars with teams of different television programs.

Surprised friends

When arriving to the air terminal, Ríos and Larraín they descended and they went to a sector quickly VIP. They went in silence, with happy faces and they opted for not speaking with the media. However, when they carried out the steps in International Police's sector, they called to some intimate friends, as Mauricio Israel, to confirm the news. They married! And I didn't have neither he/she devises", the commentator of Mega counts Mauricio Israel. I was "with 'Kenita' and Marcelo eating until passing the midnight and neither I found out", he/she adds.

As long as, different friends of the model, as the stylist David Belt, and Rubén Thumb, their representative, they denied "flatly" that the decision of being married should to that her its first son is waiting. It is "completely false and the time will check" it, he/she commented Belt.

Woho. Wasn't Kenita Larrain the model that supposedly cancelled her wedding because she was having an affair with Carlos Moya last year?

yup she's hot. But I'd prefer to see him on court than in the church with a model. That guy made me start loving tennis. I suppose I'll never ever like anyone so much, the way I used to admire his talent.

There are a lot of us outthere who feel the same. I think tennis came so easy to him, right until he hit that number 1 spot, and then the injuries took their toll, and I personally feel his first wife didn't do a lot to support him on the tour.

no 'official' reason has been given - except there doesn't seem to be anyone else involved. Jules didn't like tennis or life on the tour, didn't like living in Chile and wanted to go back home to Costa Rica. He lived with her in Costa Rica for a while, and then in Dec 2003, he said he'd attempt a final comeback because his wife was backing him - so he went to Thailand to play Paradorn's tour, and then as he was struggling in early 2004, she just upped and left. I think it's all down to her being a spoiled brat who wants her own way all the time:) I've lost count of her so-called careers - none of which have worked out. They are currently arguing over alimony and Marcelo's access to his daughter - since he hooked up seriously with Kenita in the last few weeks, she won't let him speak to Coni on the phone even and is demanding his access be cut. He's not allowed to see her on his own and there's no-way he can ever take her out of Costa Rica.

That is very sad- to have a child and have the other parent use that child to get at the other :-( That said, I still find the new marriage awfully quick. She seems to like sportsman; first Moya, then calling off the marriage to Zamorano and now Rios. I hope it works for them though. And yes I had heard her called the chilean Diaz. Whatever, the lives of some celebrities are very strange( no matter what country they are from). Wonder if they know about the real world.

I'm quite sure when the president asked him to show up to his residence and such back when Rios was doing very well, Rios was like screw that and didn't want to come. :)

wrong. Yet another Rios myth. Rios was given an official welcome at the presidential palace after he became number 1 in 98. He just received a medal from the same president - Lagos - last year, who said his tennis artistry was like Neruda's poetry.

Jenrios, are you chilean????
Because when Marcelo became number 1 in 98, Eduardo Frei was the President of Chile. The only incident that I remember was when Frei invited Marcelo to "La Moneda" palace, Marcelo didn't want to talk to the crowd when Frei invited to him to did it.

In any case, you're right about the commentary of current president Ricardo Lagos :yeah:

Oops! Big apology! very stupid mistake on my part. Obviously, I'm not Chilean. Anyway, different president or not, as far as I know, Marcelo did not upset him. OK, he declined not to speak from the balcony, but that's not a snub to the president, is it?
