Luis Suarez wife - Sofia Balbi

Luis Suarez has been one of the key players in Barcelona's attack.


The Uruguay international has become famous for his sharpness in front of the goal. However, we are here to learn more about his wife, so let's begin.


Who is Luis Suarez wife?

Luis Suarez has been married to his childhood sweetheart, Sofia Balbi for nearly 11 years.


The two met when Luis was only 15 years old and Sofia was 13 years old. Suarez was working as a street sweeper in Montevideo, as he comes from a poor family and when he saw Sofia he was completely stunned by her beauty.


They had some difficult times in their relationship, as Sofia's parents, who were very wealthy, had to move to Spain due to her father's new work assignment.


At that time Luis was still playing for Nacional, but he desperately wanted to move to Europe to be closer to the love of his life.


However, after some very hard moments in their love life, in 2009, Suarez and Balbi finally got married in a small wedding ceremony, attended by the closest members of their families.


In 2019, after 10 years of marriage, Sofia and Luis renewed their wedding vows at a star-studded gathering in Uruguay, as there were many star names among the guests, including Lionel Messi.


Who is Sofia Balbi?

Now, after we learned Sofia and Luis Suarez story, let's take a closer look into Balbi's biography.


Sofia Balbi was born on November 10, 1989, which means that her age is 30, but she is about to turn 31. According to her date of birth, Balbi's zodiac sign is Scorpio.


Sofia Balbi was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, meaning that her nationality is Uruguayan. Sofia Balbi has a wealthy origin, as her father was working for the banking industry in Uruguay.


The blonde beauty has three siblings, a brother, Gonzalo Bali, and two sisters, Mariana and Pao.


Sofia Balbi gained her popularity when she became the wife of Luis Suarez, it's a fact. However, the blond temptation has a huge fan base on Instagram with over 1,4 million followers. She is very active on Insta and she often shares photos of her and her family.

When Luis Suarez joined Barcelona in 2014, his wife instantly became best friends with Leo Messi's wife, Antonella Roccuzzo.


Sofia often shares snaps of them on her Instagram profile. However, their friendship evolved into a partnership, as they created Sarkany, the first ever European outlet in Barcelona.


However, Roccuzzo is not the only WAG with who Sofia is close to. She is also very good friends with Gerard Pique's wife, Shakira.



Although, Suarez has gained his reputation of the bad boy on the pitch, in recent years he has behaved quite differently. That's because his wife Sofia, who has been supporting him since day one, helped him to change his whole attitude when playing.
