When we say, football players’ wives the obvious thinking people go into is the slender figure, jewel wearing, red carpet walking Instagram celebrity. Most of the time, the whole mentality or thinking would be correct, many of the celebrity wives and girlfriends and stars in their own rights or become stars when they are seen out an about a talented sports player.
Natacha Van Honacker, on the other hand, is on a whole different playing field when it comes to footballer wives. Rarely seen on the red carpet, always there to support her husband but equally camera-shy, the thing is if it weren’t for the player getting all of the family on the pitch when they win the title then no one would’ve known if Eden Hazard was even married.

After the first few seasons at Chelsea, Hazard was asked if he would be okay going to France and playing for PSG and he said Natacha would get a huge say in what happens with his career. Thank god for Chelsea fans Natacha didn’t want to leave London and Chelsea; otherwise, history would’ve taken a different turn for both the English and French clubs.

A man needs a rock to anchor themselves to, and Natacha provided the anchor point for an up and coming athlete, and the effect of her decision making is the reason why the footballer is now considered one of the greats, instead of partying he worked on his game, and now the talent is for all to see in Real Madrid, all because of Natacha.

But it is also the testament to their love, the fact she was only 14 years old when the two met and still to this date the parent of three are head over heels for each other.
