Marriage And Children
Maria and Lucas met each other for the first time when he was playing for Flamengo.
They started dating each other in 2017. He proposed to her in the same year, and after being engaged for months, they tied the knot on 27 November 2018 in Brazil.

Maria And Lucus’s First Time Meeting
Maria and her husband talked about their first meeting in an interview with POD DEALS.
Maria and Lucus both are getting popular as the couple starts posting their dancing video.
They didn’t talk about their personal life much in the interview, and it was the first time they detailed their first meeting.
Maria started the interview by sharing how she had always been interested in playing tennis.
She played tennis for a long time, but then she stopped. She was done with tennis and sports, so she decided to go into psychology or the nutrition field.
She thought for a while and chose nutrition. At that time, her uncle was VP of Flamingo, so he got her an internship as a nutritionist in Flamingo.
One day when she was taking boys for weight measurements, she saw Lucas for the very first time.
Lucas was there weighing, and Maria found him extremely attractive. At that time, Lucus was playing for the Flamingo Club, and he had put on some weight.
He did notice Maria but kept it cool. But later, after a few days, he texted Maria.
She didn’t reply immediately, but she told her about Lucas texting her friend.
Her friend got really excited and started asking about Lucas. Maria took a few days to reply, but after that, they started texting each other.
During that time, they did see each other in the club stuff, but none of them approached to talk in person.
After some time, Maria and Lucas both agreed to go on lunch, and Lucas asked Maria if she wanted to go for sushi.
She liked Japanese food at that time, so she agreed, and that was the first time they went out together.
They slowly fell in love, then dated, and now are a happily married couple.
Maria is 25 years old, and she is 5 feet 5 inches tall.
Her net worth is yet to be calculated. However, her husband, Lucas, has a net worth of $ 5 million.
