Victoria Beckham – The Queen of all WAGs
There wasn’t any other way for us to start our article, except with the spouse of one of the most popular and loved ex-football players in the world. Victoria Beckham is the original WAG. Born in 1974 in Harlow, Essex, the fashion icon made a name for herself with the all-female pop group Spice Girls. They ruled the pop charts in the late 90s and have sold more than 85 million records, making them the best-selling girls’ group of all time.
Known as Posh Spice, in the last decade, Victoria Beckham has become an internationally recognised fashion designer and a style icon. She’s had appearances on many reality shows, TV series and official documentaries and has walked the runway at many prestigious fashion shows such as the London Fashion week, the New York Fashion Week, the Milano Fashion Week and more.
Posh Spice has graced countless fashion magazine covers during her career including Vogue, Elle, I-D and W. She launched her fashion label in 2008 and in 2011 won the Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.
Victoria Beckham married her husband and sex icon, David Beckham, in 1999, and today they have 4 children together. After one of the most recognised and followed couple conquered Europe, they decided to take their glamour oversees and moved to LA. In the last couple of years, she has concentrated more on her personal life and her children, while her husband has been pretty busy. He has recognised that football (more known as soccer in the US) is starting to get more and more popularity in the United States, he decided to create a brand-new football club Inter Miami CF.
As you can probably guess, creating a new football club from scratch is extremely hard and complicated, and requires dedication, knowledge and millions and millions of investments. But certainly, if there is one family that can afford it, it is the Beckhams. In case you want to remember the good old times, listen to one of the most famous songs of Victoria Beckham and the Spice Girls.
Georgina Rodrigues – The One True Love of CR7
Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed person on social media with more than 210 million followers just on Instagram. Outside the football pitch, he is known for many things, such as his unique athleticism, extreme hard-working ethic and perfect body. He is certainly the biggest football sex symbol of our times and millions of women around the world want to spend time with him. So, it would certainly require a real special lady to tie him down and make him devote his life to her. And that lady is Georgina Rodrigues.
Born in 1996 in Jaca, Spain, Georgina Rodrigues is a model and a Spanish sex symbol. The stunning WAG met CR7 at a Gucci store in Madrid, where she was working as a shop assistant in 2016. It was love at first side, as described by the Spanish beauty, and since then it has been only “rainbows and butterflies”. According to the Italian media, Cristiano and Georgina secretly married in an intimate Moroccan wedding, but this is yet to be confirmed by Ronaldo himself. But even if this is only a rumour, a wedding is definitely not too far off, as Cristiano has described Georgina as the love of his life.
She gave birth to a baby girl – Ronaldo’s fourth child, but first which the mother is known. Georgina appears to have a very good relationship with the rest of Ronaldo’s children, especially with Cristiano Jr, and gets along well with his mother too. She is regularly pictured with all of them in seemingly tender moments and the couple say that they consider more children in the future. Today, Georgina Rodrigues is probably the most famous football WAG and certainly one of the sexiest and luckiest women in the world. Just like Ronaldo, who is a must-have when you’re building your Daily Fantasy football team, Georgina is likely to get picked if there is such thing as the ultimate WAGs dream team.
Antonella Roccuzzo – Devoted and Able to Carry All Six
Interestingly, some of the most famous football WAGs were actually childhood sweethearts of footballers who stayed with their partners throughout their journeys. Such is the case with Antonella Roccuzzo, the WAG of six-time Ballon d’Or winner Leonel Messi. She knew him since he was five years old, as both of them were born in Argentina’s third-largest city Rosario and her cousin was one of Messi’s childhood friends. After the footballer left to play in Spain when he was 13, they stayed in touch. In the late 2000s, their romantic relationship became public as it is not known how long the pair have been together behind closed doors before that.
Apart from being an Instagram star, Antonella is a successful entrepreneur. She owns a footwear boutique in Barcelona along with another of Barcelona’s footballers wives Sofia (Luis Suarez’s wife). She also earns as a professional model and currently is under contract with the shoe designer Ricky Sarkany. She married her husband in the middle of 2017 and they already had two kids together. In the following year, they welcomed another addition to their family as their third boy was born. Her financial value is estimated at nearly $20 million. She is another good example of a successful WAG, and her love story and dedication to her husband are undoubtedly worthy of admiration.
Shakira – The Most Famous Barcelona Fan
If we have to name one football WAG who is way more successful and popular then her husband, then that is certainly the Latino pop queen Shakira. She is married to the Barcelona’s star Gerard Pique and they met in the spring of 2010 at the filming of the official video of the 2010 FIFA World Cup song “Waka Waka”. Their romance began and today the couple has two children. An interesting fact is that the Spanish international is 10 years younger than Shakira, but that’s obviously not a problem.
The Latino diva is one of the greatest female singers of all time as many of her songs are known all over the world and she has sold more than 75 million records worldwide. She is ranked as the most-streamed Latin artist on Spotify and is one of the only three female artists to have two YouTube videos exceeding two billion views. She is also known for her philanthropic work and is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Her most recent performance was at the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, along with another worldwide popular singer Jennifer Lopez. According to the American entertainment media Billboard, the halftime show had a viewership of more than 103 million people. Her estimated net worth is more than $300 million. In case you’ve missed the Super Bowl halftime show, here it is:
Coleen Rooney – UK’s Favourite Girl Next Door
Labelled as ‘The nation’s favourite girl next door’, Collen Rooney is definitely the most famous football WAG at the moment, when we talk UK-born players. The Liverpool-born mom of four is the wife of the greatest English football player Wayne Rooney. The pair met when they were 12 years old and began dating when they were 16. They married in Portofino, Italy in 2008. Born in 1986, Coleen has established herself as a successful businesswoman and a media personality.

She has released a couple of books and a best-selling fitness DVD, and has been the face of major brands such as ASDA and OK! magazine. The celebrity couple has a number of multi-million-pound properties around the world, while Coleen’s net worth is estimated to stand at 15 million pounds.
Her relationship with Waza has endured difficulties, especially when ex-England captain’s private life was exposed by the national media and it was claimed that Rooney is having gambling problems. However, she has always supported her husband, in good and bad, and it is believed that now their relationship is stronger than ever. The UK media also claims that she is the main reason for Rooney to quit his former club DC United and come back to the UK, as the life in the US didn’t meet her expectations.
One of the most recent stories surrounding Coleen was the spat with Rebecca Vardy, the wife of Leicester City’s ace Jamie Vardy. In a statement on Twitter, she claimed that Vardy has sold stories about Rooney’s personal life to the media, without her approval. All kinds of stories about the Rooney family have emerged in the media throughout the years, which is normal, as they are truly one of the most popular UK couples. Even some of the that biggest sports betting sites in the UK have offered betting possibilities about their relationship in the past. Today, Coleen is enjoying the final years of her husband’s stunning career as a player and both love being back in the UK.
