Julie is a member of the US women’s soccer team and plays defender for the Chicago Red Stars. Ertz made FIFA history when she was featured along with her national teammates in the FIFA 16 video game. The history-making doesn’t end there, as she and the team were also the first women’s team to bo honored with a ticker-tape parade in NYC.
It was the first time women players were included in the game and has been included in every EA Sports title since. In 2016, Ertz became engaged to Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, and the couple married a year later. They now have a child together — a son named Madden Matthew Ertz.
If it wasn't for the sports gear, the medal in her hand, and the sponsorship logos in the background, we would have thought we were looking at a model working on set. Silje Norendal is a Norwegian snowboarder. Starting her career young, she has accomplished a lot.

In the 2018 Winter Olympics, Noredal finished in fourth place with a score of 78.75. It seems like this beautiful snowboarder found love on ice, getting engaged to hockey player Alexander Bonsaksen in 2018.

With a Jamaican father and an American mother, it's surprising that Nichelle would grow up in Canada, of all places. The Canadian soccer player currently plays for the Houston Dash and the Canadian national team. Apart from her born talent in the field, Prince enjoys writing, reading, and doing yoga in her free time, which no doubt helps her performance on the field as well.
Though she has built herself a solid fanbase, she is still somewhat of a fangirl herself. Some of her favorites are soccer player Lionel Messi and hurdlers Priscilla Lopes-Schliep and Perdita Felicien, who are also fellow Canadians.
