Gerhard Dilling is making the good news public: the former sports presenter is in love with the Hamburg entrepreneur. “Yes, we are a couple,” the 62-year-old confirmed to the magazine “Colorful” his relationship. The new woman at his side is Christina Block. The 46-year-old is co-owner of The Block Group (Block-House, Grand Elysée).
A blended family with seven children
Block and Dilling are both divorced and have three daughters, and Christina Block has a son. The couple and their seven children now form a large, mixed family. The journalist said Dilling’s criteria for a good relationship were “openness, clarity, self-confidence and of course love”. Everything else may be convenient, but not authentic.
Gerhard Dilling has already been married twice. Until 2001, he and elementary school teacher Birgit were married for 13 years. Dilling has two daughters with his ex-wife Birgit. From 2003 to 2014, Dilling was married to television journalist Isabel Wagner. A daughter grew out of this relationship. Christina Block was previously married to Stefan Hensel.
Dillings’ first novel
In addition to his new relationship, Dilling has another reason to feel happy. At the beginning of the year his first novel “Ella & Co KG” was released. The former sports presenter is best known for covering ARD Sports. Working with former professional soccer player Gunter Netzer earned him the Grimme Award in 2000. In the fall of 2018, Dilling announced that he would be leaving the public broadcasting service in May 2019.
