Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne has made a swift recovery from his knee ligament injury and has already joined his teammates his training. Although he is on the verge of missing the Liverpool game, he will be back in the starting XI this month.
Missing the opening games of the Premier League might have disappointed the former Genk midfielder, but as it seems, he was kept at work during his injury layoff. The reason ask? His stunning wife Michele Lacroix is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child. Posting a picture on Instagram to her 185k followers, she wrote, “Family of FOUR.”
It is unknown when is Michele due. Both Kevin and Michele already has a two-and-a-half-year-old son Mason Milan, who was born in March 2016, together.
De Bruyne’s dating history is as bitter as you can think. Back during his Wolfsburg days (2014), he was in a relationship with Caroline Linjen. During the time, Linjen was secretly dating the Belgian’s national teammate Thibaut Courtois when he was plying his trade with Atletico Madrid. Eventually, there happened to be a major bust-up between the two footballers during a certain Belgium camp.
According to The Sun, Linjen did this “as a revenge of De Bruyne’s infidelity after he cheated on her with a former best friend.” De Bruyne and Courtois have resolved their issues now.
Rumours of De Bruyne dating Michele Lacroix surfaced later that year (2014). Michele grew up in Genk and studied at the University of Hasselt. According to the reports, she has worked as a hostess in the past and got engaged to the midfielder back in 2016 when he went down on his knees in Paris just outside the Eiffel Tower and wrote; “Happy birthday to my future wife. She said yes.”
The couple decided to tie the nuptial knot in June 2017 in Sorrento, Italy. She doesn’t visit the Etihad that often, but was seen with her better half on the pitch when City lifted the Premier League in May this year. She was also spotted on the stands during Belgium’s FIFA World Cup quest. Although the Red Devils failed to get their hands on the coveted trophy, reaching the semi-final was deemed as the great achievement for Belgium.
