The midfield maestro, one of the best in his trade, was at that time on loan at Werder Bremen after a disappointing spell at Chelsea. By his own admission, he was still not a big star when he tweeted about a game he had just played, as Daily Star reports.
Michele Lacroix liked the tweet and De Bruyne instantly liked her. He was too afraid to reach out to her, and it took one of his friends who sent Lacroix a message.
I was single at the time, and my friend noticed it. So he said, 'She looks like a nice girl, no? You should send her a message
The rest, as they say, is history. The Belgian exchanged texts with the ravishing model and walked down the aisle three years later. The couple has since been blessed with three kids, Milan, Rome and Suri.
