Our World Cup WAG series rolls on today with Michele De Bruyne, wife of Manchester City/Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.
Michele and Kevin have been together since 2014 and have one child together. The got engaged in December 2016 and married last summer — Michelle took to Instagram earlier this week to celebrate their one-year wedding anniversary:
1 year husband and wife. Can’t wait for forever, this is just the beginning. Love you. Happy anniversary X
It’s good to see Kevin found love as his previous relationship with a woman named Caroline Lijnen ended disastrously. Rumor has it Caroline allegedly cheated on him with then-teammate Thibaut Courtois — from The Sun:
The City star told how a year earlier Chelsea stopper Thibault Courtois stole girlfriend Caroline Lijnen from him, causing a volatile rift between the two international team-mates – and some handbags in training.
He wrote: “My girlfriend Caroline went to Madrid with some friends, and Thibaut had an affair with her.
“He then told a friend of mine about it, which wasn’t too clever. You can’t do things like that – and I still think about it now.”
As far as actual soccer is concerned, Kevin and his Belgium squad are on to the knockout stage of the World Cup. Their group match with England today is pretty pointless, and that’s reflected with both teams starting backups.
