Professional soccer players are real people with real lives and while some of them choose to go through it alone, others have gotten married and had families. Some players have chosen partners away from the limelight of fame and others have married celebrities. Much like sports betting odds, the chances of soccer players and celebrities dating or getting married are mostly unpredictable, so it’s always interesting to find out who gets together. 

Famous partners

The partners of these players are nothing short of exceptional as they’ve used their talents such as singing, modeling and business acumen to stand out from the conventional crowd. It just wouldn’t be fair to mention them simply because they’re married to or dating a professional soccer player. 

Edurne Garcia (David de Gea)

David de Gea likely hears the music of his long-time girlfriend Edurne Garcia with every save he makes, so she could be responsible for the high soccer betting odds that accompany his clean sheets. All jokes aside, Garcia started dating the Manchester United goalkeeper in 2010 and there are conflicting reports of whether the two are married. Nevertheless, they had a baby girl named Yanay in March 2021. 

Garcia is a Spanish actress, singer and television presenter. She rose to fame in 2005 after participating in a Spanish casting show called Operacion Triunfo where she took sixth place. These days she’s a successful artist and has regularly starred in a variety of Spanish films and television shows.

Victoria Beckham (David Beckham)

David Beckham is one of the most prolific soccer players in the history of the sport and was a heavy soccer betting favorite when he played. However, his wife, Victoria Beckham, is arguably just as famous as he is – depending on who you ask. Victoria Beckham, previously known as Victoria Adams, was one of the members of the Spice Girls as well as a songwriter for the pop group. She is also a fashion designer and television personality with a series of business ventures that range from fashion to makeup.

The couple met in 1997 at a charity soccer match and got married on July 4, 1999, with their wedding said to be one of the most extravagant to take place in the 1990s. They have four children – Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper. 

Shakira (Gerard Pique)

Gerard Pique is known for being one of the best defenders in the world and the Spanish World Cup winner is a player who was pivotal to his club and country’s success with excellent live odds in soccer. Shakira, however, is an international music sensation with her music having reached the ears of millions of listeners. The Queen of Latin Music is famous for her versatility in music, with several successful albums.

The couple met in 2010 as Pique appeared in the music video for Shakira’s song “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa),” the anthem of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. They had their first child, Milan, in 2013, and their second child, Sasha, in 2015. 

Perrie Edwards (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain)

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a well-known English midfielder for Liverpool and his recent performances have contributed to positive soccer betting balances in the sports betting industry. His girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, is part of one of the most popular female pop groups in England – Little Mix. There are very few details regarding the nature of how they met, but the relationship was officially confirmed in February 2017. 

Together they have a son who was born on August 21, 2021. Apart from being a singer, Edwards is also an ambassador for Superga, Supreme Nutrition and Nando’s. In October 2021, she launched her lifestyle and fashion brand Disora, which has been described as a contemporary luxury brand.  

Pilar Rubio (Sergio Ramos)

Sergio Ramos is notorious for flipping live sports betting odds upside down with his on-field aggression, which gets him sent to the locker room. But off the field, he’s one-half of arguably the most famous couple in Spain. Pilar Rubio and Ramos met and started dating in 2012 and got married in July 2018, and together they have four children. 

Ramos is a Spanish TV presenter, model and reporter who became famous for covering a range of events for Se Lo Que Hicisteis. She soon got into acting, being one of the protagonists in the series Piratas which was released in May 2011. Since 2014, Ramos has been a collaborator in the TV program El Hormiguero
