Dani Osvaldo's girlfriend Jimena Baron thinks Southampton is 'like a dream'
8:03am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
FROM Buenos Aires to Bugle Street.
It’s been a long journey for Jimena Baron to find her way to Southampton, but the girlfriend of club record signing Daniel Osvaldo is already loving life on the south coast of England.
While Osvaldo, who could cost Saints £15m, is settling into life with his teammates, Miss Baron, a star in her own right in Latin America and mainland Europe as an actress and singer, has been out and about discovering her new surroundings.

Miss Baron, who has appeared in the Argentine version of Strictly Come Dancing as seen in a video below, has posted messages to her 737,000 followers on the social networking site Twitter about her new life in Southampton.
Among them are photos the 26- year-old has snapped of the area.
There is one looking towards a part of the city walls, and another which has been taken on French Street in the city centre.
With that photo Miss Baron has tweeted: “This place is a dream.”

It is a long way from her beginnings in Argentina, not to mention the couple’s previous life in Rome, Italy, which they left behind for the 27-year-old striker to move to Southampton.
But the pair are clearly in love and Miss Baron recently revealed she had no hesitation in leaving Rome to be with her man, who has been described as football’s Johnny Depp lookalike.

“I love him and will follow him forever,” she wrote online recently.
Miss Baron made her name as a child actress, making her film debut in the movie El Faro in 1998 aged just 11, for which she picked up the Argentine Film Critics Association award for best new actress.
She won a Best Child Actor award for her role in television series Gasoleros and has also appeared in series Son Amroes, Los Roldan and Casi Angeles.
Miss Baron has also seen her boyfriend’s new work surroundings first-hand, having joined him at both the Staplewood training ground and St Mary’s on his first day with the club.
She is expected back at St Mary’s this afternoon as Osvaldo prepares for a possible debut against Sunderland
