Bartina Koeman is the true embodiment of beauty with brains! Read on to know why.. Being an actress isn’t an easy job. Working as a television actress requires a lot of hard work and investment daily to entertain the audience. Without loud applause, an actress never really feels like her career is completely successful.
The Personal Front
Bartina Koeman is one such actress who has been known for her hard work in the field and her ability to manage her family alongside. She was born on January 30th, 1961, and built her career first as an actress and now as a businesswoman with Skin Cosmetics taking off successfully.
As an actress, she has been a part of various amazing projects like Gooische vrouwen (2005)-A dutch comedy-drama, Just the Two Of Us (2007)- A British television reality singing contest wherein she was a participant, the Dutch game show Ik hou van Holland (2008) and several other shows. Her talent continues to be an inspiration for many actresses that follow.
The Love-Laden Knot
Bartina Koeman is the wife of Ronald Koeman, a Dutch professional football manager and former football player who is the current head coach of La Liga club Barcelona. He was once the captain of the national team as well.
As an individual, Bartina was already pretty well-known when the couple tied the knot, but she became even more famous when she got married to Ronald Koeman in 1985.
Even though they share such an understanding bond, there have been times when a surprise makes its way into the relationship. Like on August 8th last year, Bartina received an impromptu call as she learned that her husband had decided to retire as the trainer of the Dutch national team and move to FC Barcelona.
She confessed to Shownieuws, a popular Dutch media platform, that she was overwhelmed and in shock but is beginning to cope with it. It is clear that they work very differently and are both very passionate people as far as their careers go. This is why they can stay together while maintaining the love and spark.
The Koemans As A Family
The couple has spent a lot of fabulous time together and has raised three very amazing children together- two sons named Tim Koeman and Ronald Koeman Jr. and a daughter, Debbie Koeman.
All three of their children have grown up to be successful in their field. While Tim works in finance and business, Ronald Koeman Jr followed in his father’s footsteps and is a football player, whereas Debbie Koeman is a co-founder of Skin Cosmetics and runs the brand with her mother.
Being an actress attracts attention and fan followers and, at times, sends out a message that they might not be able to give enough time to the family and the kids. Bartina, however, has found the perfect equilibrium and focuses on her career as much on the family.
When she was finding it difficult to keep a friendly bond with her children and dealing with long working hours, she ended her career as an actress. But still keeps up her social appearances and maintains social interaction with her followers on social media.
Together Through Tough Times
On May 4th last year, the then Dutch national Coach Koeman complained of ill health, was rushed to the hospital, and was diagnosed with heart problems. Following the impromptu trip to the hospital, he underwent a surgical condition that was able to stabilize his condition.
Bartina stayed by her better half through these challenging times, doing the needful while being the strong woman she is, including keeping the people updated about the health of their beloved national coach. Only a woman of substance could have pulled this off.
A while later, with his move to FC Barcelona, she unquestioningly stood by his side, supporting him and offering him the strength he would need to make the decision. It is imperative to be on the same page as a couple even though there might be differences at a micro-level. Bartina, taking it in her stride gracefully, has been the rock to Ronald Koeman.
There is no doubt about the fact that she has taken every decision ensuring that her support towards her husband and children never diminishes. Whether it was switching careers or standing by during the toughest of times. Unconditional love and undying support for her family have brought out all the best elements of Bartina, and Ronald Koeman is certainly luckier with his wife by his side.
