Eden Hazard wife - Natacha van Honacker

Eden Hazard is undoubtedly one of the most famous football players at the moment - but what do we know about his life outside the pitch? Is he married or is he single? Does he have children?


Oh My Football decoded to take a closer look on Hazard's personal life, so here it is.



Who is the woman behind Eden Hazard?


Natacha Van Honacker is the woman that made the Real Madrid ace fall in love with her ever since high school.Hazard married his childhood sweetheart as they began their relationship when he was just 14-year-old.


Natacha is a very private person and she is not the usual football wife trying to be the centre of the spotlight. As a matter of fact she is more of a shy person that prefers to support her husband without trying to get attention.


She rarely goes to any red carpet ceremonies and if it was not for Hazard who get all of his family on the pitch when Chelsea won the title then nobody would have known that the Belgian is even married.


Who is Natacha Van Honacker?


We know very little for Natacha Van Honacker as she rarely goes in front of the camera.


She was born and raised in Belgium but little do we know about her age or date of birth as she has not disclosed information about her personal life.


From what Hazard has spoken about his wife we know that she is an incredible cook and she is a full-time mother and a housewife.


However, it is a fact that she is a die-hard supporter of Eden and was often seen at her husband matches back in the UK.



Natacha has turned out to have a huge impact of Hazard not only personal, but professional life too.


As it was reported, she influenced the 29-year-old Belgian to move to Real Madrid and also in the past Hazard wanted her opinion of whether to join Paris Saint-Germain or not.


"If my wife was to say, ‘Honey, I'd like you to go to PSG,' I would have to take it into account," said Hazard.


From a childhood sweetheart to a wife


As we already said, Hazard met his wife when he was just 14-year-old. Both met at a friend gathering and it was a love at first sight for Eden as Natacha did not notice him initially.


However, Hazard fell in love in her shy nature and shortly after that they started dating.


In 2005, a tempting offer came from Lille and Hazard needed to move to France, but at the time he was already in a serious relationship with Natacha Van Honacker.


She couldn't move right away with her boyfriend, who eventually became superstar, as she was still a student, but after graduating she moved to France as well.



However, Hazard and Natacha decided to tie the knot in 2012, just before the Belgian joined the Premier League club Chelsea. They got married in a low-key ceremony attended by a small group of close family and friends.


As it seems Hazard is not the typical football player who loves to party and he is more of a family guy as he prefers to be with his family rather than going out with friends.
