Ainhoa Armentia He turns 44 and has a lot to celebrate. The family of the Basque Iñaki Urdangarin, Already as her official boyfriend, they will be together with the woman who went from the most absolute anonymity to open the news on that January 19, 2022. In these ten months, the worker of a law firm in Vitoria has gone from being unknown, married with two children, to the lover of the husband of the Infanta Cristina.
After the first photographs of Iñaki and Ainhoa, she left her marital home, where she lived with her husband and their two children, and went to her father’s house. She separated from her husband, with whom she had already been in crisis for a long time. Armentia had social networks that gave us clues about how she was, and we found out that she is very fond of sports like running, mountaineering, and that she practices yoga or that she has an apartment in Alicante.
365 days ago now, Ainhoa Armentia turned 43 years old, she celebrated it with her co-workers, including Iñaki Urdangarin, and then she did it again at her house in Vitoria, together with her husband and their two children. But Urdangarin and Ainhoa Armentia had spent a few days in Biarritz, on the French-Basque coast, no doubt believing that they were not going to be discovered. But that romantic dinner was recorded and photographed. And everything changed. Who does not remember Iñaki reading the restaurant menu, with his glasses up close; and Ainhoa with her green turtleneck sweater and the glass of wine on the table.
A month before the Biarritz scene, Urdangarin was the perfect husband walking through the streets of Barcelona hand in hand with his wife. Then they repeated the scenes of her going in and out of the Imaz & co law firm, where she worked with Iñaki Urdangarin, until she was cloying.
From being a person far from fame, she began to be investigated by the media, we searched for who she was, what she did, what her life was like, since when was she related to Iñaki Urdangarin, the former Duke of Palma, who was being unfaithful to his wife, the infanta Cristina, while facing her third degree prison in the maternal home, in Vitoria.
If the scandal of the sentence of Juan Carlos I’s son-in-law to more than five years in prison, and his subsequent imprisonment, was an unprecedented setback for the image of the Royal House, the confirmation of the infidelity of Felipe VI’s brother-in-law Doña Cristina caused a media earthquake on a national scale. The appearance of the photographs of Urdangarin in an affectionate attitude with a woman who was not his own gave way to the separation of a married couple, that of Cristina and Iñaki, who had put up with everything, against all odds, during the Noos Case, the bench, the trial and the entire process, including the stay in jail of the former handball player.
However, the scandal did not put an end to the new love story of Iñaki and Ainhoa, who are still together above all else, for the simple reason that they fell in love and their love prevails over everything: media pressure, their former partners, their children and their complicated financial situation. Iñaki and Ainhoa love each other and go all out. She immediately separated and the former Duke of Palma began to talk about his divorce with Felipe VI’s sister. Almost a year later, the paper certifying the end of their marriage has not yet arrived.
