This year’s Champions League will finally see football coming home! We’ll see two English teams coming head to head: Liverpool and Tottenham. In honor of this, we thought it was apt to pay tribute to the beautiful women we’re going to see supporting the Reds. After all, we know that the players never walk alone! Let’s get started:
1. Natalia Loewe, wife of Alisson Becker
Goalkeeper Alisson Becker has certainly made a name for himself when he recently got transferred to Liverpool for an amazing £67 million. Thankfully, that means we’ll be seeing his beautiful Brazilian wife, Natália Loewe. The pair met back in 2012 while Natália was studying to become a doctor. They tied the knot just three years later in 2015 and she is now a qualified doctor. They welcomed their first child, daughter Helena in April 2017. As of writing (May 2019), Natalia is currently pregnant again with their second child. Natália was originally wary of moving to the UK, but a fellow Liverpool WAG convinced her to change her mind and we’re thankful for it!
2. Rike Nooitgedagt, wife of Virgil van Dijk
Virgil Van Dijk has had a stellar year, playing a crucial role in boosting Liverpool to one of the top spots in the Champion’s League this year. Upon moving from Southampton, his stunner of a partner and their adorable dog joined him. Van Dijk’s wife and childhood sweetheart, Rike Nooitgedagt, is a tall, blonde beauty who decided to give up her budding career to be with her long-term partner on his move to Liverpool. She was working as a fashion sales manager for the Dutch fashion industry. The pair have a beautiful daughter and a dog, and the couple is very open about their relationship in public.
3. Anita Lovren, wife of Dejan Lovren
The Lovren love story is one of the more dramatic and surprising ones you’ll come across in the league. It’s not a huge shock when you hear of a footballer having an affair but it’s extremely rare for it to be the other way around. Unfortunately, that’s exactly the case with Anita and Dejan Lovren. Back in 2016, Anita’s affair with a long-time friend of the couple’s was exposed to the public, rocking their years-long relationship and family. Anita and her lover, Dario Torbic, began their affair upon meeting up in their home city of Zagreb and continued as she came back home to Liverpool. He would fly in and they’d swap messages and arrange secret dates. It even got to the point where Anita was consulting with a divorce attorney. However, Dejan whisked her away for a sort of “make or break” holiday a few days after the news broke and Anita decided to stay with him and their two children.
4. Tamara Tia, fiancée of Joe Gomez
Joe and Tamar met in late 2014 while they were still in school in South London. He admitted to resorting to technology – back then it was still Blackberry messenger – to chat her up, but he seems to be able to express his feelings for her just fine now. A little bit after spending their 4th anniversary together, Joe popped the question to the love of his life. Though they’re still quite young, Tamara has already played a big part in his life. He credits her for being his rock while he was out for a 16-month-long injury.
5. Lilia Granadilla, wife of Alberto Moreno
Spain has no shortage of football WAGs, and Lilia Granadilla is another one of them. Born and raised in Seville, she grew up with a younger brother and sister. Lilia and Alberto have been together since 2011 and are now parents to 2 beautiful children: 2-year-old Carla and 1-year-old Alberto. They also have a dog named Ali. The happy family now all live together in Liverpool to provide unwavering support to Alberto.
6. Rachel Roberts, girlfriend of Andy Robertson
The two are high school sweethearts who met while in high school – Rachel being a year younger but them having the same group of friends. They ended up together when the footballer was just 19, and they’ve been going strong since then. She’s the proud owner of Oro Sport, a UK based gymnastics clothing brand that exclusively distributes Dreamlight USSA in the UK and Ireland. Despite not having tied the knot yet, the couple is already parents to a gorgeous kid: Rocco born in August 2017.
7. Rebeca Tavares, wife of Fabinho
Brazil is just another country with gorgeous fans and WAGs, just like Rebeca Tavares. She’s a young 23-year-old Brazilian Instagram star known for her sense of fashion and style. As of writing, she has 80.2 thousand followers on Instagram and 86.5 thousand on Twitter. She and Fabinho got married in December 2015 but they have yet to add to their family. Football will be running in their family, too. In January 2018 Rebeca was signed to the Monaco FC women’s team.
8. Mirella Pereira, girlfriend of Georginio Wijnaldum
Georginio “Gini” Wijnaldum has a talent for picking beautiful women, his most recent being Mirella Pereira. There aren’t too many details on how their relationship started but they already have a son, Jacián Emile Wijnaldum. Gini also has two daughters from his former girlfriend and childhood sweetheart, Virginia Braaf. Mirella has supported her footballer beau despite his numerous relocations. She’s pretty active on her social media and isn’t afraid of showing off her sensational body and fashion sense.
9. Amy Fletcher, wife of James Milner
James Milner and his longtime partner Amy got together before he started his football career two decades ago. That’s pretty impressive, and their relationship stays mostly out of the limelight. Amy is a very private person so not much is known about their relationship, but we do now that she’s the one in charge of running the James Milner Foundation. They now have two beautiful children together,
10. Rebecca Burnett, wife of Jordan Henderson
The Liverpool captain and midfielder Jordan Henderson is an ace both on the field and off. During his performance in the 2018 World Cup, his wife Rebecca Burnett and two daughters Alex and Alba constantly showed their support. They both try to keep their family life out of the public’s eye. Rebecca’s social media is private and Jordan rarely posts pictures of his family on his. However, the family was spotted enjoying some quality time together during some World Cup downtime.
11. Emily Jubb, wife of Adam Lallana
Adam Lallana and his wife were together for seven years before tying the knot right before Christmas day, on December 24, 2013. They were originally scheduled to wed in mid-June 2014 but because this coincided with England’s World Cup match with Italy, they needed to make adjustments for an earlier schedule. Their wedding ceremony was at the Poole Register Office in Dorset. They now have two children: Arthur Michael born in September 2012 and Albie George born in June 2015.
12. Perrie Edwards, girlfriend of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
This is probably Liverpool’s most public and most famous couple. Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is currently dating pop star Perrie Edwards, who is one-fourth of the British pop group, Little Mix. They started dating in 2017 and are very open about their relationship, frequently posting pictures together on their respective social media accounts. Perrie is certainly used to dating high profile celebrities – she was previously engaged to One Direction’s Zayn Malik in 2013. Now, rumors are swirling about a possible engagement to the footballer as both have hinted at the possibility!
13. Larissa Pereira, wife of Roberto Firmino
Larissa Firmino (née Pereira) is yet another well-known Liverpool WAG who’s never hesitant to share details about her life and family on social media. She and her footballer husband Firmino met in 2014 and married just 3 years later in 2017. She has roughly 441 thousand Instagram followers and it’s not hard to see why – she has a gorgeous face and a stunning bikini body that she’s not afraid to flaunt. Larissa also has an entrepreneurial spirit! She is the founder of two fashion brands: Lari Firmino Brands and BeValen Store. The pair has two adorable daughters: Valentina and Bella.
