Risto Mejide (48 years old) does not like to talk about his private life and it is in very few spaces that we see him pleasing the press by revealing details of his privacy. Now, separated from Laura Escanes (26 years old), his intimate life is even more persecuted than before and he is forced to confirm what Lecturas announced at the time: he has a new girlfriend.
On Monday night, the third installment of the program Cuatro‘Focus’in which the theme of age difference in couples. The transmission had constant comments from two media communicators, such as Risto himself and Kiko Matamorosalthough the testimony of Marta Lopez Álamo, the latter’s girlfriend. But in addition to his current girlfriend, Risto Mejide also spoke about his ex-wife Laura Escanes.
Happy remember Laura Escanes
Risto Mejide spoke for the first time during a television interview and naturally about the end of his marriage. In a way, the presenter shelved the relationship by commenting that “I closed a stage”, something he did with affection by ensuring that “it allowed me to close it well, with all the good and with all the bad”.
Despite the breakup, when he referred to his ex-wife, it was very good. Risto Mejide even recalled his marriage to Laura Escanes commenting that “That wedding is still one of the happiest days of my life”although “also the birth of my children” added the presenter, knowing that these statements alone will give much to talk about in the coming days.
Furthermore, Risto wanted to reflect on his own family, as when his grandfather was widowed he fell in love with a woman 30 years younger. On the other hand, his mother had a relationship with a man who was a year or two older than he is, so his love for Laura Escanes, 21 years his junior, did not come as a surprise in his circle.
Risto Mejide confirms he has a new girlfriend
Speaking of the different moments of his life or stages as he has preferred to call it, Risto Mejide confirmed that “it is a relationship that has just begun, it is a girl that I am getting to know”. However, since the breakup, he knows that he is the focus of the press and that he has to be careful, but he has always wanted to bring everything back to normal, including having a normal life off camera and “having a normal life as a couple.”
With this naturalness, I wanted to emphasize that he was caught (referring to the images of the Readings) for this reason, but that he has to respect his “new stage”, as he refers. She is 27 years old and the publicist emphasized that he will do everything possible to keep her anonymous at her express request, as “she is in a very happy moment” that she cannot and does not want to waste.
Risto Mejide’s reflections in his book
Risto has just published his novel ‘Sixteen Notes’, where he writes precisely about the freedom to love whoever you want. Though he didn’t want to reveal too many details of the work, he reflected on the physique: “The commitment to the physique is short-sighted. It doesn’t last, everyone gets tired. And he even launched a question on the air criticizing anyone who talks about couples with age differences: “Who are you to get in the way? And he said: “They are adults who have decided to love each other”.
Finally, the writer made a nod to his current love, revealing that “I live better in love, I like the feeling of really being with someone, of sharing that part of the journey with someone”.
For this reason, the phrase “why do we have to deprive ourselves of living a precious love for fear of what they will say” pronounced by Kiko Matamoros’ girlfriend on the program, can be a good conclusion of what Risto has lived and is seeing, a phrase that can also be attributed to Catalan.
