It is often said that there is a great woman behind every successful man. And this is also true in the world of football. We love football players not only because of their talents, appearances, and contribution on the pitch but also how they choose, nurture and enjoy happy lives with their partners. With that in mind, let's check out the most inspiring love stories in the football world!

Irina Shayk and Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk are undoubtedly one of the hottest couples in the world since both of them are the superstars in their own field. With 26 trophies in the whole career and 5 Ballon d'Or awards, the Portuguese footballer is often regarded as the greatest player of all time, while the Russian actress and model is ranked the 7th most popular model in the globe thanks to a large fan base. During 5 years of love, Irina had coped very well with his son, and the couple even got engaged. Unfortunately, they broke up to our surprise in 2016.
