American actress Sophia Bush once said ‘Marriage is not about age; it’s about finding the right person’ this is what legendary Brazilian footballer Pele might have had in mind when he decided to marry his girlfriend. The 75 year old star tied the knot on Saturday to Marcia Cibele Aoki in small ceremony which was held in Sao Paulo Brazil. Pele and Aoki were set to get married two years ago but the ceremony was postponed after Pele suffered health problems .
Pele has three children with his first wife Rosimeri Cholbi who he was married to for 12 years. He then married gospel singer Assiria Nascimento who stayed with him for 14 years and were blessed with twin boys.
Speaking to a Brazilian magazine during an interview, Pele said he met Marcia who is of Japanese origin in an eighties New York party in 2008 where they discovered they were living in the same apartment block.
Pele officially introduced Marcia as his girlfriend in 2012 at a football awards ceremony in Monaco.
