Married Men: Jesus Navas, Luka Modrić & Diego Lopez

Image: YFrog.

‘Tis the season for footballers to sell their single souls, Kickettes. Are you primped and ready to explore the joys of newlywed life from a secondhand, invite-less perspective?

Sevilla player & Spanish international, Jesus Navas, is officially off the market. Sad face.

Navas & his lady, Alejandra, tied the knot in their hometown in front of notable guests such as The Ramos. Twitpic-happy Sergio even squeaked out a couple of pictures in between the ceremony and reception.

While the new Mrs Navas is quite the looker, this couple seems sooo young a.k.a. they better have a good pre-nup.

We kid.


Luka and Vanja Modrić got married – again. This time, the ceremony was in a church. We believe Mrs M. bought her wedding dress at a quaint shop called Frump City.

The couple arranged this second wedding and  party because Vanja’s unexpected pregnancy kinda/sorta put a dent in their original plans. From what one of our Croatian translators can glean from the original report, the wedding ambiance was on par with what would be seen and heard at a redneck wedding in the U.S. It wasn’t a classy shindig by any stretch of the imagination.

Still, the Modrićs know how to gather a crowd, and we think their list of attendees was a tad more impressive than the names who brought gifts to the intimate Navas affair (i.e. Slaven Bilić, Ognjen Vukojević, Zdravko Mamić – the executive manager of Dinamo Zagreb, Modric’s agent and his wife – who was scantily clad in bright blue & lace and Vedran Ćorluka dressed as a bus driver).


Finally, Villarreal goalkeeper, Diego Lopez, married his lady, 26-year-old Iria Otero Rodríguez, in the small village of Ponte Sampaio. She carried peonies down the aisle, which is what we plan to fill our bouquets with when we finally take the plunge. In case you care.

True to tradition, the groom arrived at the church with his mother, Lidia, but had to wait for Iria to show her face before he could head inside the church. In typical bridal style, Iria was 30 minutes late, but once she appeared before her hubby-to-be in a custom Lorenzo Caprile gown, Lopez said his legs were ‘shaking’ from nerves/excitement.

Distinguished footy men who came out to show their moral support were Alvaro Arbeloa (plus his wife), Santi Cazorla, Joan Capdevila and Borja Valero.


How ’bout it, Kickettes? Were you proudly – or reluctantly – chucking rice at any of this weekend’s happily married footy couples?

    Ladies you missed out Diniyar Bilyaletdinov's weddings over the weekend! How could you miss out on Billy? ;) . New wife is gorgeous! Posted pics of the two of them on twitter and is now enjoying his honeymoon in Monte Carlo renting a porsche that Saha suggested to him.

  5. Céline says:

    Oh girls, This is scary hahaha prepare ur self I guess Sergio's turn will come in a year or 2 :( Hope he doesnt catch this vibe any time soon

  6. Manquepierda says:

    No doubt Jesus and Sergio are incredibly attractive men, but I think she looks lovely to her own credit. She looks so beautiful and glowing.
    And don't feel bad for herl!!! After all, she's marrying JESUS NAVAS…

  7. @mezz98 says:

    Sigh. Jesus has the prettiest eyes. Alejandra is a lucky lady.

  8. Carolé says:

    Dammit, THE eyes are off the market! … BUT, it's not that bad that I'm gonna lie in the couch all day, watching movies with five cups of ice cream or something. :p

    … I'm only gonna do that when I hear that THE lashes are no longer available.

    • nika says:

      I can't even imagine the day when Yoann will be out of the market! But I'm sure that I won't heal my wounds with food because when I hear such a shocking news, I'll stop breathing! Literally!!!
      Anyway, soon or later, that we'll happen and that woman who finally gets him will be one lucky beach!!! I hope she will know to apreciate what she got!!!!!!!!!

  9. Stef says:

    There were so many tacky women at Modric's wedding. Boobs spilling out of dresses, and very visible bums. You would never have thought it was a wedding the way some of them dressed.

    • Rosa says:

      Yeah I agree. I'd be pretty offended if people came to my wedding dressed like those women were.

  10. JNas says:

    Jesus getting married also means that he loses his V card. Yay Navas!

    and of, course they both look amazing and the Ramos looks like a proud pseudo big brother.

  11. Rosa says:

    If Manchester United come calling you put everything on hold, even your own wedding lol. He can always get married though, so I dont see what there is to be cynical about. :)

    • A wedding that has probably takenlots and lots of months to prepare for? All sources said that he would complete the transfer after he got home from honeymoon, I'm sure if everything is agreed they can wait a week or so or wait with the honeymoon til after the deal is signed.

  13. xoWinnie says:

    damn he's a hot piece! would've loved to be at that wedding ;)
    the bride looks beautiful and Navas is a sweetheart with mesmerizing eyes!
    i wish them well! :)

  14. sarakhatmi says:

    And as if navas wasnt bad enough the 17th we get another reason to be sad, Raul Albiol is getting married to his Alicia…but the best part is we get to see more off Sergio in that absolutly perfect outfit :)

  15. IrishBlue says:

    The new Mrs. Navas is almost as beautiful as her man's eyes. Almost.

  16. and Ashley Young was supposed to get married this weekend but was cancelled at the last moment http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2002090/Ashley-Young-complete-Manchester-United-switch-scrapping-wedding.html” rel=”nofollow”>:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2002090/Ashley-Young-complete-Manchester-United-switch-scrapping-wedding.html
    twitter rumours say it was because he had been seeing someone else behind his fiancee's back for 2 years. Who knows? But doesnt sound at all unlikely, he's a footballer after all

    • Rosa says:

      He's cancelled it cos he's signing for Manchester United anytime soon.

      • essjay says:

        I don't want him moving to United! :(

        However, him not getting married means I still have a chance. So, United. Thankyou.

  17. Jen says:

    Those eyes, those eyes!!! Dreamy!! Why is the Ramos standing between the couple….the man has NO CLASS!

    • xoWinnie says:

      are you serious? it's a wedding, he wanted a picture with the couple…
      especially being that one of his good friends JUST got married
      how does this say anything about his "class" or lack thereof?
      way to turn a positive, happy post into something negative.
      get a life.

  18. MadridistaJenn says:

    Awww, the cuteness of footballers and their beauty brides warms my heart and…
    Seeing Sergio in that suit just reinforces the fact that he and I such get married.

  19. Maria says:

    I LOVE WEDDINGS !!!! … it makes me happy … that & the dress … are awsome … CONGRATS TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL COUPLES!!!! :)

  20. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Congrats congrats, Ramos with this one button suit looks so handsome and polished is a torture!

    Arbeloa should be in the finest five or should make room for 5 more Kickette including him.

  21. You forgot Jermaine Jenas! He got married on Saturday too, check out Defoe's tweets :)

  22. Lotte says:

    So much beauty, no? I hardly thought there was a girl that would want to marry Navas. I mean, who wants to be outshined on her own wedding?

    Nah, just kidding! Alejandra is a beauty, and we can all still enjoy Navas and his EYES on the football field. *sigh*. And the Ramos is still not married, bless him.

    Congrats to all the happy couples! Love is in the air!

    • Lotte says:

      Just a reflection: I guess he can admit of thinking about sex now that he's married. I remember the interview before the WC when they asked the spanish players about sex and football. And Jesus simply stated that he was to religious to think about sex. Right. I guess the times are changing, huh :) ?

      • @DebStimson says:

        :p I thought about that when I saw the pics on The Ramos' twitter. Hats off to him, though. It seems, as a footballer, he's one of a dying breed.

        • Lotte says:

          Now I want to see adorable babies! That's always a treat. Here's to more babies and a better season for Sevilla! (Also, Ramos and Jesus are so sweet together :) ).

    • Rosa says:

      Jesus suffers from chronic homesickness. He rejected a move to Chelsea due to homesickness. And Ramos had to make him feel comfortable during WC 2010 cos he suffers from anxiety attacks every time he is away from his home for an extended period of time. Sad for him.

      • @DebStimson says:

        Sergio's such a good friend no? I've read that's he's also been in therapy for it. Either way, glad he was able to make it to the WC. What an amazing feat…on more than one account.

      • Lotte says:

        I know, he must have worked very hard with himself to overcome such a thing. And Ramos is a good friend.

    • essjay says:

      "I mean, who wants to be outshined on her own wedding?"

      That's why I've decided that, when the day comes when I get married, I'm not gonna invite any goodlooking footballers (excluding my future husband… Haha). No Ramos, or Alonso, or Navas.. They'll just take the focus off me, and put it on their beautiful selves…. :(

  23. blake2108 says:

    Blackpool's Craig Cathcart also got married. Some big name players you've forgotten…

  24. suzie says:

    congrats to all of them : )

  25. Cris_7 says:

    All i can see is ramos in this beautiful tuxedo :D ohh God!!

    • elizabeth says:

      me too…watch out mr. alonso you might be getting some competition as the 007 of spain.

    • essjay says:

      He's absolutely gorgeous in it. I'm not usually that big on The Ramos, but hot daaaang. He looks good!

  26. mochara says:

    • ToysForBots says:

      Oh wow, I didn't hear about that until just now! That's so sweet! I had actually forgotten that they weren't married already, since they've been together for such a long time.

  29. JA7 says:

    • LarissaxNavas says:
