Oriana and the Roma striker Paulo Dybala started dating in late July 2018. They apparently got in touch with each other through social media. It however is unclear who was the one to approach first though some claim that it was Dybala himself. Also, at the time, Sabatini didn’t know Dybala was a professional footballer.
She asked her friends about him but they all told her that he was a tennis player. It was her father, Osvaldo who properly gave information about Dybala to his daughter, Oriana.
Oriana, once in an interview, revealed during the early phase of her and Dybala’s relationship, she put her career on hold as she didn’t know how to manage it from a long distance.

The Truth About Oriana Pregnancy
Back in May 2022, news suggesting that Oriana might be pregnant caught quite the heat due to her boyfriend, Dybala’s on-field celebration which he did after scoring one of his goals in a Serie A. The Roma forward had put his thumb in his mouth which players usually do when there’s a baby coming into the family.

Fulop encountered the question when she was giving an interview and after hearing about the rumor, Catherine said, “not for now.” The Latin American celebrity nevertheless got excited and wanted to make sure if she really was going to be a grandma. She therefore said,
I’m going to ask her!
Fulop soon knew about Dybala’s particular goal celebration that instigated the hearsay in the first place. She eventually made a video call with her daughter Oriana. When Fulop finally asked if her daughter was having a baby with Dybala, the Argentine artist said she wasn’t and that her footballer boyfriend’s celebration meant something else.
As for marriage, Sabatini and Dybala are yet to tie the knot.
