    i heard kaka's wife (carolina, i think)is a gospel singer and just recently released an album!..also, i dont think shes a typical WAG, thank god.

    i was watching a kaka interview and he said that he and his wife were both virgins when they got married, he said 'it was hard because there were so many temptations around but God helped me through' sweet!

    • aps says:

      Yes Caroline is a Pastor. Definitely not your typical wag.

    • Dru says:

      I think that's really sweet, them waiting till they were married, though she was REALLY young when they met and began dating- 14, and he was 18 or 19.

      Their kid is dead adorable, too.

  8. Kokonut says:


  9. lonelySTARSHINE says:

  10. KatiGaray says:

    OMG baby Luca is so so cute he looks exactly like his dad!!!!

    Well at least we know Kaka shall remain faithful unlike pighead Rooney, Colleen needs to take a page outta Chezza’s book and leave that damn insensitive ox!!!

    thierry Henry is such a sell out douche!!!

  11. Tabby says:

  12. Sahar says:

    kaka and luca are adorable. he needs some more kids (i am more than willing to volunteer) because he has some amazing genes. with all the scandals going on its nice to have kaka.

    btw, seeing thierry in ny is so sad i miss him in epl or la liga. even though he is closer to me, i wish he wasn't playing in mls.

  14. D0li says:

    I would have appreciated a heads up on the last link as I was in the library and people thought I was looking up call girls. it’s unfortunate that these players have such shallow egos that cause them to date “those women”. I mean how low is your self-esteem that you cannot date an intelligent woman who would make a great partner.

    The only exception to this is Torres and his wife who went to school for a degree and is now working and making her own money. I mean these women have a history of dating almost every player, being strippers/call girls at some point in history, and trying to squeese as much money out of the players as they can. No wonder they can’t afford to buy better clothes!

    As much as I want to be a WAG, my dignity comes first.. and unlike the women who seem to be the most “attractive” to players who shall not be named.. (*cough* Ronaldo, ashley cole, etc.) I would rather work my way though school to earn money than sleep with every man on the Primer team to get a purse.

    • Rossanera says:

      Amen to that, sister.

    • DJ says:

      cesc’s girlfriend is a psychologist :D this is what he said about her

      Ever tried therapy?

      My girlfriend is a psychologist, so that’s all I need! We have one at Arsenal who comes to talk to us, which is good. I have to be careful with my girlfriend; it can be dangerous.

      So, she’s not a typical WAG?

      No. She’s quiet, relaxed and intelligent. For me, that’s the most important thing.

    • Dru says:

      But Olalla is not the only exception- Cesc's girlfriend Carla is a psychology student like DJ says, Patricia (David Villa's wife) was herself a footballer till the age of 17, and even Sara Pastasauce had her own career and got plenty of attention in her own right before she began dating Iker. Kaka's wife is also very low-key, we hardly know anything about her (btw, their mini-me is ADORABLE, between young Luca here and Nando's daughter my ovaries have been busted).

      It's sad that the antics of some people lead to an entire bunch of young women being stereotyped like this.

    • Dru says:

      Another WAG who gladdens my heart is Kuyt's wife, Gertrude- she hung on to her job as a nurse after she married him! I didn't believe it in this day and age, but bless them (I'm not even a fan of his).

    • Zinny says:

      Hmm…reading this makes me realize that most of the Spanish WAGs are “not-your-typical-WAG”. Looks like La Roja has good taste in women. Well, except poor Sergio Ramos who I’ve seen with questionable women but eh… it’s okay.

      • Dru says:

        Y’know, I can’t decide wither his dress sense is more questionable than his dating sense, maybe they’re just two areas in which, let’s say, his judgment is not as it should be.

        Iker’s a serial dater, but at least the women he does date seem ok (I go against popular opinion on Kickette re: Sara, but hey)

    • Dru says:

      Slightly OT, but where does the info about Fernando's missus having a job come from- and what does she do? I know she was a student when she moved to Liverpool with him, but with one toddler and another baby on the way I wonder how she finds the time for anything! I still think they're an adorable couple though.

  15. Anita says:

    awwww!!!! the picture of Kaka with his son is just adorable!!!!! :D he looks just like him!!

  16. Inés says:

    so good to see Cheryl Cole comforting Colleen is some way!

  17. Melanie says:


    miguel torres.

    delicious <3

  18. Rossanera says:

    I can't determine who's more adorable, Kaka or mini-Kaka.

  19. WagInTraining says:

    First thing I saw when I saw that KAKA photo was ‘I shall call him-MINI ME!’

  20. Bri says:

    THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU for that beautiful picture of Ricky. It made my day to see him smiling again.

  21. Violets says:

    Oh my gosh, that picture just made me want to have Kaka's babies.

  22. Kc95 says:

    Awww…. Kaka’s kid looks so much like him. I wish he wasn’t injured. I miss the hell out of that smile.

  23. Zinny says:

    AWW!! Can I just take Kaka and Luca home with me and keep them forever and ever? Too cute.

  24. Kylie says:

    Kaka and Luca are so adorable. Kaka is just one of those people when you see him (a picture of him), you can't help but smile.

    And the Wagabees article…Is that for real?! I am left speechless.

    • DebS says:

      I agree. That pic is just adorable!

    • Violets says:

      That article left me completely disgusted. It’s one thing to ogle them on here, it’s another to try and sell your body that way just to have the tiniest chance to land some rich, famous guy.

  25. WagInTraining says:

    oh my goodness, that woman on the bottom left in that theirry henry photo looks just like a mannequin!

    • avantibaranti says:


      I think she looks more like a member of a witness-protection program, if you ask me. Disguised and composed so noone knows what she feels (if she feels something) yet her awkward attempts at not being conspicuous makes her exactly that… and if wasn't Wintour I'd say the lady got as drunk as a skunk last night and needs to hide some serious eye bags :-)

    • Kylie says:

      Anna Wintour frightens me. I know she’s been a style goddess/icon for decades and it’s sacrilege to say anything bad about her, but I don’t know. She does look lifeless in this picture.

  26. elylovesfootball says:

    Kaka and his son are just adorable :D

  27. Lisa says:

    -Anyone who uses Joe Hart in a photoshoot better have some Animal Shears ready to remove that werewolf hair on his legs.

    -Roger Federer's wife is very pretty. Shame he lost.

    -I love Atletico pyjamas! I'm thinking of getting one for my birthday next week.

    -Panacea tsk tsk. I suspect that place is only a small sample size of a wider phenomenon.

  28. LuvinBale says:

    Anyone read the story on the Wagabee's? WHOA!!!! Am I naive or does that story make you want to vomit? I had no idea the lengths women go to to meet a footballer.

    Personally I just like ogling them- I don't actually want to speak to one if them.

    These women have no shame. Again all I can say is WOW.

    • gin_in_teacups says:

      I totally agree. It's horrible gold digging and it's sad that so many young women seem to think the path to success is who you shag, rather than what you accomplish for yourself. Also, are footballers really marrying women who do this? Hook ups, sure, but real relationships?

      • Dee says:

        I totally agree with you on that.

      • avantibaranti says:

        I think so too. These women are a disgrace to all the hard working women who go and step up for themselves, make a living on their own and be independent regardless of whether they ar eina relationship or not. It is like the emancipation movement never happened. These women lead 50 years of feminism ad absurdum.

      • Rossanera says:

        I agree with all these comments. It's just sad. Firstly, bishes like this make us all look bad. Way to set feminism back a few decades, girls.

        But then I think that these girls really must have low self-esteem. I mean, how much can you respect yourself if the only thing you think you have to offer is your body, and you're willing to sell it? How much do you think your partner will respect you?

        I mean, I may not have Shakira's abs but by this time next year I'll be a qualified attorney, supporting myself and doing something I can be proud of. I know so many strong, successful women who just command respect. None of us are married or even thinking about it because we have too much we want to accomplish first. It makes me sad to think that these girls maybe have nothing else to strive for, you know?

    • Dee says:

      It disgusted me as well. I feel bad for the wives of these guys…I really do

    • JV says:

      Oy, would be WAGs and jersey chasers are some of the most single-minded, scary people in the world. Last year (in the US) some woman set up a web site where you could obtain the..ahem… specimen of certain pro athletes. You know, just in case you wanted to have a kid with a man you never met. I don't even want to know how she collected her wares.

    • DebS says:

      My first thoughts too. Seriously girls? Have you no shame?! Of course the guys are going to look at you, dressed like skanks and all.

      • LuvinBale says:

        So glad I am not the only one who feels this way. I know we all go on this website to ogle the players and make our comments and such. But would any one actually take photos of yourself knowing full well that other men would be looking at it and then thinking to yourself that it is a “calling card” for these men to get in touch with you?

        As a female with a good education and a good job I thank the lord that my mother raised me right, to stand on your own two feet and make your own money. Holla!!! to the women who are doin’ it for themselves!!!

        • Dee says:

          Amen, girl. Call me old fashioned but I don't think I could ever A> be that aggressive or B> degrade myself that much.

    • Lisa says:

      I love that it mentioned Ryan Giggs spent his wedding anniversary in that club. Very classy Giggsy, very classy. Those WAGabees who think they have made it by “bagging a footballer” will probably end up being cheated on worse than those who met footballers before they were famous. How will their future baller partners ever have respect for them?

    • Taskeen says:

      talk about having some dignity! i don't understand what those girls are thinking. i mean, i'm sure we all have thoughts of meeting our favourite baller and all that but i'm sure most of us would never stoop that low and behave like predators. what about your own ability to provide all the good things in life for yourself and not waiting for someone to provide it all for you or waiting for them to cheat to "take them to the cleaners".. totally insane! seriously.. i can't wrap my head around the whole thing

    • keziah says:

      So glad the women of kickette have more class than these women. I love footballers not just for their incredible looks but also for their footballing skill and while meeting one would be great I’d prefer a man who will be faithful than a player who will… well “play”. I am saddened these women are only in it for the money and are willing to give sexual favours to bouncers and the like to get to married players! And altho it must be hard with all these women literally throwing themselves at players why cant these men keep it in their pants adn meet normal women. Thank goodness for Nando and Cecs WAG’s and the like.

  29. DJ says:

    awwww, Luca is adorable :) my ovaries are dead!

    i love sylvie but THOSE pants?!! :O

    and lastly i love Rafa (and totally rooting for him today) but i just find tennis so boring!!

  30. Emme says:

    I pretty much decided over the weekend that if I could be any WAG in the world, it would be Mirka Federer. Little Kaka is way too adorable!

  31. gin_in_teacups says:


    That's all. Carry on.

  32. avantibaranti says:


    How cute.

    It has become very rare now that kickette reports on what Thierry Henry is doing now (why by the way?)

    All the best to him and his girlfriend (who looks an awfully lot like his ex-wife, no?)
