QOTD: Rafael van der Vaart On His Wife, Sylvie

“When I look at her, I think to myself ‘I did pretty damn good to manage to get her!’”

–Rafael van der Vaart speaking about his ever-gorge wife, Sylvie.

Bless. We bet Rafa’s not the only footballer that thinks like this. (Over to Crouchie for his infamous ‘virgin ‘quote.)

In this sweet video interview (in Dutch) Rafael talks about how much he misses Sylvie when she is away in Germany working her RTL contract.

He says the miss-maximum that he can handle is three days. (Sylvie takes their son, Damian with her.)

In other Sylvie news, her Elie Saab wedding dress will be on exhibition (yes, seriously) at Den Haag Museum in the Netherlands along with gowns worn by Crown Princess Maxima. Wonder what the other WAG Barbie/Elie Saab wedding couture gown wearer would think of this…

Photo is Sylvie wearing Elie Saab at the Golden Camera awards in Germany last month. Thanks M!

    You really think she's so gorgeous? I mean, I know she's beautiful, but in this photo her face looks terrible! Just like made of plastic.

  2. Linda says:

    She looks so plastic. I don’t like her at all.

    awwwww Rafa’s too cute. I think I’d be heartbroken if he turned out to be like all the other ballers and messed around behind her back. Him and Canna give me hope that not all footballers are man-ho’s.

  4. Shipra says:

    I just so admire Sylvie!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Aisha says:

    She is f**king gorgeous! Seriously, can a women get any prettier? I think she is prettier than Cheryl Cole. Raf is so cute for saying that!

  6. Beautiful dress, fantastic boobs, A+++. Does she ever get it wrong?

  7. Stiliani says:

    Cute quote. I don't love this pic of her, but in general she's so pretty. He better not cheat on her like every other athlete does on their partners!

  12. Mel says:

    Oh wauw. I looooooove Rafa! It must be the ultimate goal in life to marry a guy who loves you as much as Rafa loves Sylvie. They desirve all the happiness in the world. Also so cute that he can only stand to be seperated from her and there son for three days. I love him so much more after this.

  13. Merel says:

    Fynarf, gotta love the Claudine Keane reference. Sylvie is THE wag barbie, Claudine's the pound shop imitation

  16. I worship her. When there was a rumour during the transfer window that he might come to United, I almost fainted from the excitement of imagining Sylvie and Coleen hanging out together.

  17. Gina says:

    Yeaaah she looks alright. There's something about her skin tone in this pic that's a bit off…

    but yea from all the other pics ive seen of her she looks lovely.

      She's too tan. I hate when celebs overdo the tan at the solarium. But Sylvies always been the wag i liked best.
