Virgil Van Dijk wife - Rike Nooitgedagt

Virgil Van Dijk is undoubtedly one of the greatest defenders of our time as he helped Liverpool win the Champions League and the Premier League for the first time in 30 years, just for his two-year spell at Anfield.


However, we are not here to talk about the accomplishments of the huge Dutch, as we want to focus our attention on his personal life.


Who is Van Dijk wife?

Is Van Dijk married? The short answer to that question is 'yes'. The 29-year-old defender already has a spouse and her name is Rike Nooitgedagt.


Van Dijk and Rike Nooitgedagt have been together for a long time as they began their relationship when they were teenagers.


Marrying your childhood sweetheart is probably one of the greatest things in life as nowadays is hard to maintain one relationship for a long period of time, but apparently it worked out for Van Dijk and Nooitgedagt.


The couple have been through ups and downs in their relationship, but they decided that it is time to tie the knot in 2017.

Who is Rike Nooitgedagt?

Oh My Football will present to you Rike Nooitgedagt biography. Actually, there is almost no information about Virgil Van Dijk's wife.


She likes to keep her life very private. We cannot be sure about Rike Nooitgedagt birthday, nor age. We assume that her age is somewhere around Van Dijk's age as they began their relationship when they were young.


The only two things that we can be sure about is Nooitgedagt's nationality and her job. She is from Netherlands, such as her husband. We believe that she was born in Breda, as Van Dijk.


She worked as a fashion sales manager, back in the time, and actually the first biggest set back in her relationship with Virgil came in 2013.


She had to choose between her career and staying with Virgil, who got a call from Celtic. Nooitgedagt was making a great sales in her professional area, but she eventually chose her own happiness rather than her growth in her career.


As we already said, Rike is keeping her personal life very private and she can't be found on any social media. Rike Nooitgedagt does not have Instagram, nor Twitter, or at least we could not find her accounts, so if you have more information feel free to send it to us.


Virgil Van Dijk family

Virgil and Rike have one beautiful daughter together. Rike Nooitgedagt became pregnant with Van Dijk child and gave birth to their first baby in 2014. The couple decided to name her Nila van Dijk.


Actually, Van Dijk had one very odd request to Rike. He asked her to her to have the birth of the child induced.


The reason behind his request was that he got called from Netherlands national team and he could not attend to the birth of his daughter. Rike, realized that it was her partner's dream to play for the national team and agreed.


Their relationship is truly inspirational as they both have to make big sacrifices in the name of their love.
