Doda Miranda and Onassis were married on December 3, 2005, after which it is believed that she assumed a hybrid version of the Onassis and Miranda names, thus apparently dropping the Roussel name. The bride’s father and stepmother were not at the ceremony, though her half-sister Sandrine Roussel was invited.
Some anecdotes of the wedding refer to the consumption of 1000 bottles of champagne (around one per person). Most witnesses were Brazilian horse-riders. Athina and Doda decided not to publish photos of the wedding (as they were going to do) after a television report some days before the wedding about the death of Athina’s mother. The couple reportedly asked for no presents and asked their guests to donate the money intended for presents to charity.
Doda Miranda and Onassis has one stepchild, Viviane de Miranda e Dorsa.
More recently, Miranda and Onassis has been trying to reach out to the Greek trustees of the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation in her bid to become President of the Foundation. She has expressed an interest in learning Greek and has renewed her Greek passport. She also hopes to be on the Greek equestrian team at the next Olympics.
Their plans were to stay in São Paulo, which caused Nelson Pessoa, the captain of the Brazilian Equestrian Team, to regret publicly that Doda Miranda has forsaken his international career, and (informally) call upon the shipping heiress’s influence on him, to persuade her then-fiancé to return to Europe and compete there. Lately, as her interest in competing in the 2008 Summer Olympics grew, the couple announced that they would return to Belgium to train following their honeymoon.
The Miranda”s have since been training with Nelson Pessoa in Belgium, where they have many horses and where Doda Miranda’s daughter, Viviane, is enrolled in a private school in Brussels.
