Social media users were up in arms with varying opinions over a quote that is allegedly from Kaka’s ex-wife where she claimed that Kaka was “too perfect for her”.

Several Brazilian news outlets have reported that Caroline said she felt ‘something was amiss’ , despite the fact that Kaka never betrayed her.

Kaka’s Instagram activity

Amid the storm that has followed the alleged quotes from Caroline, Kaka took to Instagram to prove that he has truly moved on from the mother of his two children.

The 41-year-old reposted a photo shared by his lover Carol Batista Leite, who has been with Kaka since they started dating in 2017.

Leite posted several snaps of the couple together along with the caption, “Te Amo” to mean “I love you”. In the comment section, the former Real Madrid man affirmed his love, writing, “My love, my life.”

Kaka who is very passionate about his Christian faith, retired from professional football in 2017, according to NDTV.

In his prime, he was considered one of the best players of his generation, and was part of the Brazilian team who won the 2002 World Cup.

He is part of an elite group of players to have won the Ballon d’Or, the World Cup and the UEFA Champions League.

Who is Carolina, Kaka’s second wife?

Born in 1995, Carolina is a model who comes from a fairly humble background.

She has succeeded tremendously in her career as a model and actress, two fields she always wanted to explore since she was a child.

The model’s romance with Kaka blossomed since their meeting in 2017, with the couple welcoming their first child, Esther Leite, in 2020.

In February 2023, Carolina announced the couple had welcomed their second child.

Players who got kids early

Sports Brief also reported on some big football names who got kids earlier in their life.

Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher courted controversy after suggesting footballers should delay starting a family until late in their twenties or early thirties.

However, players like David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Raheem Sterling provide classic examples that a footballer can thrive with a wife and children.
