Mikel Arteta renewed the vigor of Arsenal when he took the management of the club. But who is it that occupies the Spaniard’s mind when he is not thinking about his team? That would be his lovely wife, Lorena Bernal! Read on to know everything about her!
Quick Facts about Lorena Bernal
Lorena Bernal celebrates her birthday on May 12, 1981, and was born in the quaint town of San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina. But the stunner soon moved to Spain when she was just a year old.

Making a Mark!
Lorena Bernal has traveled a lot. This is why she is fluent in three languages, Spanish, English, and French. Though the model started working as a professional at the age of 7, it was in 1999 that the world got to know about this sensation. She was just 17 when she was crowned with the title of Miss Spain! Since Lorena couldn’t compete in Miss Universe due to her age, she later represented her country in Miss World and made it to the top ten. Although she didn’t win the competition, the sheer success in coming so far opened the gates to exciting avenues in television.
