Portuguese club FC Porto have been doing quite well in this year’s Champion’s League, with three wins and one draw at the end of Matchday 4. Only time will tell how far into the league they will progress, but they certainly deserve the credit at this point.
With that, many professional footballers across all teams and countries, in turn, credit their families for their success, and for keeping their feet on the ground. We’ve paid tribute to the WAGs of a few other teams before, and we’re continuing this appreciation with FC Porto. Many of the Porto players prefer to keep their lives very much on the down-low, as do their wives. Because of that, there’s generally not much information available about many of the WAGs on our list.
However, we will try to at least give basic information and the pictures to match! Check it out below:
1. Sara Carbonero, wife of Iker Casillas
Sports Journalist Sara Carbonero is probably the most famous WAG on the list for Porto. She studied Journalism from the Complutense University of Madrid and was hired after 6 months of being an intern at Radio Marca. Sara began dating goalie Iker Casillas back in 2009 when he still played for Real Madrid. She has been by his side both for his team games, and games with the Spanish national team.
Speaking of that, she was in the center of a bit of a controversy while she was covering the 2010 World Cup. There were allegations – primarily made by English news outlets – that she had caused the Spanish loss to Switzerland because she was a “distraction” standing less than 60 feet from the Spanish side’s goalpost. Others also began casting doubt on her journalistic integrity because she decided to interview her partner after the said match. However, they grabbed the hearts of the world when Spain won that same year as Casillas kissed her on live TV.
Their relationship made it through that speed bump and has continued to blossom until this day. They married in March 2016 in a very private ceremony in Madrid, in the presence of just two witnesses and their son Martin (born in January 2014). They welcomed their second son, Lucas, in June 2016.
2. Emely Borba Matos, girlfriend of Vaná Alves
Emely Borba Matos is the first on the list to have almost no available information. While she does have social media accounts, they’re set to private. However, her partner, Porto goalkeeper Vaná, often posts appreciative photos of her on his own Instagram. Check them out below:
3. Anita Machado, girlfriend of Diogo Costa
Diogo Costa is one of the newest and youngest players to join the Porto roster, as he joined the first team in 2018 from the Porto B team. As such, his girlfriend Anita is also one of the newest and youngest WAGs on this list. She is a beauty and unfortunately, there’s also not much information about how their relationship began and blossomed. However, they are both very open about their relationship on their respective Instagram accounts. We can deduce from a post on Diogo’s that they’ve been together since September 2016. They are parents to an adorable French bulldog named Pandora, who has her own Instagram account all dog lovers can check out here.
4. Priscila Minuzzo, wife of Alex Telles
Priscila Minuzzo is a brunette beauty with dimples as deep as the Mariana Trench. She began dating Porto defender Alex Telles in 2013, and the pair tied the knot in their home country of Brazil in June 2018. Apart from that, we don’t know much about their relationship. We’re waiting for news as to when they’ll be growing their family with a baby!
5. Bianca Almeida, wife of Felipe Augusto de Almeida Monteiro
Bianca Almeida is another mysterious WAG on our list. She also has an active Instagram account but it’s set to private like previously mentioned WAG Emely Borba Matos. Luckily for us, her husband occasionally posts photos of her on his social media. The photos show that she is a supportive partner, often showing up at her husband’s games.
6. Patricia Gomez, girlfriend of Oliver Torres
Oliver Torres is a champion on the pitch, but his girlfriend’s Instagram game is on a whole other level. Blonde model Patricia Gomez has amassed her own following of almost 86 thousand followers on her Instagram account, and it’s not hard to figure out why she’s gained such a big following. She’s not shy to flaunt her jaw-dropping figure, and she always shares photos of her travels and relationship with Torres. Her sun-kissed hair and perennial tan show she was made for the beach, and her photos are there to prove it. One photo in particular that caught the public’s eye was taken in July 2017 while she was on vacation in Cuba – she was posing completely naked on the beach. You can’t actually see anything revealing but you can definitely see that she’s not wearing anything.
7. Shantal Mato, wife of Hector Herrera
Hector Herrera is one of the real lucky ones in the football world. This is mostly because though he’s not the most attractive of men, he was able to marry a true brunette beauty. He and his wife, Shantal Mato, got married in 2015 but have been together for much longer than these 3 years of marriage so far. Though it’s not clear exactly when or where they met, they became parents to a little boy named David in 2012, 3 years before their marriage. They are now also parents to a little girl, Valentina.
8. Diandra Machado, wife of Otavio Monteiro
Otavio Monteiro may still be a youngster, but he’s already a family man. We can’t say with certainty that this couple has officially tied the knot but they are the parents to an adorable little boy, Theo. They also recently announced that they are expecting another addition to the family, a little girl named Ayla, early in 2019. Other than that, we can’t give much information on this beautiful brunette mother.
9. Cristiana Pereira, girlfriend of Sergio Oliveira
Cristiana Pereira is a Porto WAG who was a name in itself before being linked with her boyfriend, Sergio Oliveira. According to her Instagram bio, she’s a lawyer and has a Master’s degree in business law. She’s also a TV presenter for Porto Canal, the regional TV channel for Northern Portugal that is partnered with FC Porto. She works primarily with the Nas4Linhas show. Though we can’t say anything with certainty, we’re speculating that she met Sergio while working with the FC Porto-partnered TV channel.
10. Andresa Daniela, girlfriend of Hernani Fortes
We have another WAG for Porto with limited information available with the brunette beauty, Andresa. Luckily, her Instagram account is accessible to the public. Based on what we can see from her pictures, her permanently tanned skin indicates that she’s a regular beach-goer. It seems she also enjoys traveling and working out. She also partners with Prozis, a company that advocates healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle.
11. Gabriela GV, wife of Jesus Corona
Jesus Corona is married to longtime girlfriend, Gabriela GV (not quite sure what the GV stands for, though). They are blessed with a beautiful son who they proudly post many photos of on their social media accounts. They previously attempted to further expand their family but due to complications during pregnancy, they sadly lost their second child. In June 2018, Gabriela posted a photo of a sonogram, captioning it with thanks for the opportunity, confirming her third pregnancy.
We’ve come to the end of our appreciation post for the gorgeous WAGs of FC Porto! Stay tuned as we bring you more athlete wives and girlfriends from around the world.
