You know what’s crazy? Euro soccer WAGs like Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau can pull in nearly a million IG followers for just being a hot soccer wife. Yolanthe calls herself an actress, but let’s be honest for a minute…that’s just bio filler material. Her job is to be a hot wife for husband Wesley Sneijder, a Dutch soccer player who’s pulling around 4.5M Euros this season.
I know, that’s pennies compared to what MLB players make and their wives are barely recognized or not recognized at all. That’s the beauty of soccer: the players and wives have done a great job of maintaining a public persona. They understand that sport is entertainment and it includes off-field activities.
Sneijder-Cabau appeared in the Dutch productions Snowfever (2004) and Costa! (2005). From 2005 to 2008, she had a recurring role in the soap opera Onderweg naar morgen. In 2006, Sneijder-Cabau starred in the short film Turkse chick, which was nominated for a Gouden Kalf, the Dutch equivalent of an Academy Award. A real-life WAG, she appeared in the third season of the dramedy Voetbalvrouwen, similar to the British series Footballers’ Wives. In 2006, 2007, and 2009, Sneijder-Cabau was voted the “Sexiest Dutch Woman” by the Dutch FHM.
