She has had relationships with show jumper Cian O'Connor and speed skater Joey Cheek.

On December 24, 2013, Georgina Bloomberg and her then boyfriend, Argentine equestrian Ramiro Quintana, became the parents of a son, Jasper Michael Brown Quintana.[4]

Her friends include Ivanka Trump, whose father Donald Trump has run for president. Georgina Bloomberg says: "I am good friends with two of Mr. Trump’s kids and no matter what happens in the presidential race, that won’t change... Donald has always been, and still is, a great father, and I know she is very proud of him and what he has accomplished."[5]

Career[edit]

Georgina was featured in the HBO documentary Born Rich, where she discussed what life is like as a billionaire heiress.[6] Forbes magazine ranked her as one of the 20 "Most Intriguing Billionaire Heiresses".[7]

She lives part-time in Wellington, Florida, where her father and mother both own homes.[8]

In November 2010, Bloomberg suffered a small concussion and fractured a vertebra during a horse show accident. She announced days later that despite the accident, she was eager to return to the sport.[9]
