One of the most distinguished athletes in the world is soccer player Kevin De Bruyne, who joined Manchester City in 2015 and has since helped the team win four Premier League championships in five seasons. But little is known about Michele, the woman he loves more than anything.
The 31-year-old Belgian midfielder began his playing career at Genk in his home country before joining Chelsea in the Premier League. He then relocated to Wolfsburg in Germany in 2014, and it was there that he first met the woman who would become his wife. Three years later, in 2017, De Bruyne and Michele got married. They are parents to two sons and a daughter.
Who is the spouse of Kevin De Bruyne?
In 2014, De Bruyne first met Michèle (formerly Lacroix). The player admitted that the couple met on Twitter in a 2019 interview with The Players’ Tribune. “Initially, there was a tweet. Due to the fact that I was still on loan at Werder Bremen, I only had a few thousand fans at the time “He remembered. “I tweeted about a match or something similar, and this attractive female favorited it. At the time, I was single, and my friend noticed. So he responded, “Doesn’t she look like a good girl? You ought to leave her a message.”
De Bruyne, on the other hand, said that he “didn’t even have the heart to slide into my future wife’s DMs,” so his pal prepared and sent a message on his behalf. The midfielder said, “Thank God, he sent the message for me, and she answered. It’s much easier for me once I get to know someone, so after we spent a few months getting to know one another through text, I was good. It really was a beautiful thing.
The soccer player, who has twice been named Premier League Player of the Year, proposed to his girlfriend at the Eiffel Tower in Paris in December 2016. On June 26, 2017, the pair exchanged sacred vows in Sorrento, Italy. Following the wedding, Michèle posted a picture of the pair kissing with the comment “26.06.2017.” Kevin included a picture of himself as well and captioned it, “So glad I can call you my wife now!”
On their first anniversary in 2018, De Bruyne penned a homage to Michèle on his blog. He named his wife his “partner in crime” and said that their first year of marriage had been “an great year with many more to come.”
As previously said, the loving couple is parents to three kids. 2015’s transfer window reportedly saw Michèle become pregnant with their first child. That moment was “very traumatic” for De Bruyne’s family, he would later remark. They had their first son, Mason Milian, in March 2016, and their second son, Rome, in October 2018. In an interview with The Players’ Tribune, De Bruyne paid gratitude to his wife, stating that she “changed so many aspects of my life. Quite frankly, I’m not sure what I would do without her.” Suri, the couple’s first daughter and third child, would be born in September 2020.
Michèle is a huge fan of De Bruyne’s professional endeavours. She shared a picture of herself with her husband and kid carrying the Premier League trophy on Instagram after Manchester City won the league in 2018. She also stands by the soccer player when he is representing his country abroad. After France eliminated Belgium from the 2018 World Cup, Michèle posted a picture of herself holding her husband and son while wearing the Belgian flag’s colours on her face.
The Secret Society podcast, which is in Dutch and features a variety of Dutch and Belgian celebrities discussing a range of topics, is co-hosted by Michèle at the moment. Actress Lize Feryn, DJ and model Luna Stevens, and photographer Marie Wynants are among the guests listed on the podcast’s Spotify website, People said.
