Spouse: Rafael Van Der Vaart, 29 (Holland and Tottenham Hotspur FC)
The Dutch model and mother-of-one married the Spurs striker in 2005.

She battled breast cancer in 2009 (Rafael’s club at the time, Real Madrid, had wanted to sell him, but the player decided to stay in Madrid because she was undergoing cancer treatment there) and came out on top. Three years later she looks as fabulous as ever.
