Gareth Bale, who has played for Real Madrid and Wales, and Emma Rhys-Jones are in it for the long haul. The two started dating back in the early 00s. How they did meet? Well, they went to the same high school! How sweet is that?
In 2016, they announced they are getting engaged, and in 2018 they finally tied the knot. Unlike many other wives of soccer players, she doesn’t have a career in the spotlight, and we bet that’s what keeps this couple grounded.
Michael Owen & Louise Bonsall
It's rare to see PRIMARY-school sweethearts — people that have known each other since childhood and decide to get married and build a life together. But that's the case with soccer player Michal Owen and his wife Louise Bonsall.
The two have practically known each other their entire lives. They got engaged in 2004 and married the following year. The two have four children together, all born between 2003-2010, so we bet their plate is full right now!
Bastian Schweinsteiger & Ana Ivanović
Bastian used to play as a central midfielder. The player is known for his great tactical abilities and is considered one of the greatest German soccer players ever.
In 2014, he began dating Ana Ivanović. She used to be a No. 1 Tennis player, so we can see why the two make a great couple together. Her career is just as impressive as his, if not more. They got married in 2016 and had two baby boys together, one in 2018 and the other in 2019.
Steven Gerrard & Alex Curran
Steven George Gerrard is no longer playing on the field, but that doesn't mean he has been forgotten. How can anyone forget someone who was named one of his generation's greatest players?
Steven and Alex are one of the longest-running couples on our list, having been together since 2002. But what is Alex all about? Well, she's both model and a fashion writer. She even has her own fragrance, simply named "Alex."
Bruna Biancardi & Neymar Jr.
Born in 1992 as Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, the player has made a name and a career for himself no one could have ever imagined. He is one of only three players to ever score 100 goals for three clubs.
His girlfriend, Bruna Biancardi, is amazingly not the first Bruna he has dated, as he was once involved with Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine. Neymar and Biancardi welcomed their baby girl Mavie into the world on October 7, 2023. Little Mavie has an older brother, Davi Lucca, who was born in 2011 to her father and his then-girlfriend Carolina Dantas.
