Hey, everyone!

Ramble of the Day

To celebrate transfer deadline day, I figured I’d go down a bit of a rabbit hole of probably Tottenham’s best signing of the window, Sergio Reguilón. In truth, I got the idea when one of my sisters stumbled upon a video he posted on Instagram of his vacation in Dubai during the offseason, and that it was like one Moussa Sissoko posted last year of a trip to California because it looked like the work of a professional. I remembered that Reguilón’s girlfriend is Marta Diaz, a successful influencer in Spain (and is certainly the more famous of the two of them). Having a professional videographer on vacation would make a ton of sense for her, and she did eventually share the results of that videographer’s work on her YouTube page.

Going through Diaz’s social media channels, it seems like Reguilón is a pretty good influencer boyfriend. He does TikToks regularly with her, and will do the acting work required if need be.

He’s also featured on her YouTube channel a few times, including in a video where they play a game of Who’s More Likely. They speak Spanish a little too quickly for me, but I have it on good authority that the video includes very little substance. Still, they seem to be a couple who clearly enjoy each other’s company, and he seems to be very willing to participate in her work.

It all seems quite wholesome. Good for them.

tl;dr: Sergio Reguilón is a very willing influencer boyfriend to a famous Spanish YouTuber, Marta Diaz.
