De Bruyne has two children — Mason and Rome — with his wife Michele Lacroix, whom he married in the summer of 2017, but the story of how the couple met is a curious one. The Belgian recounted how when he was on loan at Werder Bremen back in the 2012-13 season, Michele liked a tweet of his about a match.
“It started with a tweet. I only had a few thousand followers at the time, because I was still on loan at Werder Bremen. So I tweeted something about a match or whatever, and this pretty girl favourited it. “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.’ “And I literally said to him, ‘No, no, no. Come on. People don’t like me. They don’t get me. She won’t respond.’
He wrote: “Everything changed then. But not just because of football. It was also because I had my (future) wife by my side. “She helped me grow in ways that I’ve probably never expressed out loud — even to her. This is such an embarrassing story that I hesitate to tell it! But since I promised you honesty, then I guess I have to. And it’s pretty funny, anyway.
Who is Michele Lacroix?
The blonde stunner, who is originally from Genk, studied at the University of Hasselt in Belgium. She began dating the Manchester City midfield maestro in 2014 when he was playing for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga. The 26-year-old is said to have worked as a hostess and promo girl for Prime Impressions in Hasselt. She regularly shares bikini selfies and photos of her family on her Instagram which has racked up over 272,000 followers.
Her Marriage with De Bruyne
KDB showed his romantic side back in December 2016 when he proposed to the stunning blonde Michele at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. A few months later they got married in Sorrento, Italy.
