Married to Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who plays for Barcelona as well as his national team, Dani ter Stegen is considered one of Germany’s most popular WAGs.

Thought to be 30-years-old, Dani, who is originally from The Netherlands, is well-travelled, having reportedly spent a year studying in California.

In addition, she lived in Mönchengladbach when her goalie husband played for Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Then, in 2014, the couple moved to Spain, when he signed for La Liga team Barcelona.  Once there, Dani enrolled in college in order to complete her studies in architecture (a good city to study the city, which is famed for its unique Gaudi buildings).

Marc-Andre and Dani started dating in 2012, and got engaged in 2017, announcing the good news in a Facebook Live video.

They tied the knot just months later, in a quiet and intimate ceremony, in front of a small group of friends and family.

In 2019, Dani gave birth to their first child – a son named Ben. They announced the birth of their second child, another boy who they named Tom, in February this year.

Dani, who has some 600,000 followers on Instagram, shares photos of her glamorous family lifestyle on the platform, posting images from events and holidays, as well as pictures of her family.

American model Candice Brook first crossed paths with Leroy Sane, who plays for Bayern Munich as well as Germany, in 2017, according to reports.

The couple, who now share two children – Rio Stella and Milo – soon went public with their relationship.

As well as modelling, Candice is also a singer, and she appeared on 2016 reality TV show About the Business.

Describing the programme, IMDB says it features a ‘tight knit, glamorous group of Hollywood professionals [who] find themselves constantly blurring the lines between work, play and personal relationships’.

Aged 35, Candice is almost a decade older than her husband, who is 27-years-old.

The family moved to Munich when Leroy signed for the club in 2020, following a four-year stint at Manchester City.

There, she was credited with helping the team, as Harry Kane did not speak German, so German-born Leroy’s English – learnt because it’s his wife’s mother tongue – helped the two players build a working relationship.

Model and TV personality Sara Arfaoui, 29, is married to Ilkay Gundogan, who was Manchester City’s club captain before moving to La Liga team Barcelona in 2023.

The midfielder was named as Germany’s captain in September 2023, which he described as a ‘big honour’.

His model and TV presenter wife Sara, who was born in France, moved to Italy as a child.  

The couple met in 2021 and got engaged later the same year.

They announced that they had tied the knot in May 2022, via Instagram.

Their posts suggested they had a private registry office ceremony, with the location tagged as Copenhagen, Denmark. Since tying the knot, the couple has welcomed one child.  

While jet-setting 29-year-old Sara seems to enjoy globetrotting, she has been less than totally complimentary about Manchester.

She has come in for criticism from fans of the city, after claiming that there is no good food to be found there.

Among those admonishing her for her comments, was food critic Jay Rayner who said she had shared a ‘ludicrous point of view’, adding that ‘Manchester’s packed full of brilliant, independent restaurants’.

However, since leaving the northern city for Spain, she has reportedly said that she misses the area.

Thomas and Lisa, who met in 2007, before tying the knot in 2009, did not have any children as of October 2023.

At that time, the footballer was reportedly asked whether he planned to start a family, and allegedly said: ‘Have a child? I am very busy; it is hard to be a footballer and a full-time dad.’

On top of their respective careers, the couple is reported to own a successful business named ‘EU Insemination Station’, which sells horse semen online.

Jessica is married to Germany’s Tony Kroos, who has also played for Greifswalder SC and Real Madrid.

The couple wed in 2015, after dating for a few years.

Speaking about their relationship, Jessica once revealed that ‘it wasn’t love at first sight’ when they first met aged 20 (her) and 18 (him).

But, she added: ‘He is a wonderful man. Shortly afterwards, we met in Germany and began to be together.’

Toni is the subject of the 2019 documentary Kroos, which was directed by Manfred Oldenburg.

Jessica was also in the film, alongside the three children the couple share. She describes them coming across ‘like an old married couple’ in the documentary.

While she has 229,000 followers on Instagram, Jessica is not a very prolific poster, and doesn’t share images very regularly.

However, when she does, they are often images of her husband and family, though she usually avoids showing her children’s faces.
