Read on to know everything about David Alaba’s latest flame, Shalimar Heppner! David Alaba has proven himself to be a great asset to Bayern Munich, thanks to his versatility. But who is the star’s girlfriend, Shalimar Heppner? Read on to know everything about the German model.
Biography of Shalimar Heppner
Shalimar Heppner was born on September 15th, 1994, in Munich, Germany. This puts her under the zodiac of Virgo, who are known to be perfectionists, much like this ethereal beauty.
Growing up in Munich
Having been born and brought up in Munich, this stunner’s nationality is German. However, she is also half-Asian, thanks to her Oriental mother. This is evident from some of the exotic facial features of Shalimar as well! But the most interesting fact about Shalimar is that her German father is quite famous, much more than the star herself.
Shalimar’s famous father
Shalimar Heppner is the daughter of the famed German chef Frank Heppner. He has worked with some of the most luxurious hotels around the globe, making him more famous than his daughter. He was responsible for designing the menus of Seoul, Korea’s Hilton International hotel, and many other five-stars hotels, including Peninsula hotels. The Euro-Asian cuisines particularly pique the chef’s interest. Shalimar indeed must have had the time of her life growing up in the same household as such a deft cook. Shalimar also has a brother named Glenn, but not much is known about him.
Why Shalimar Heppner is a notable name
Shalimar Heppner may not be as famous as her significant other or even as her father, but she has gathered a vast fanbase of her own. By profession, this stunner is a model and a PR agent. Though, her modeling is largely confined to Instagram. Her Instagram handle “shaliimaar” has around 30.9K followers. Her feed is plump with adorable pictures of hers, which often features our main man! She often partners with some firms on sponsorship deals, which serves as an additional income to the star. This sensation is also a well-known name on the video app Tik-Tok. She and David frequently make engaging videos on Tik-Tok.
What has she been doing as a corporate gal?
While Shalimar is super-active on Instagram, she also has been active behind the scenes. She started her journey as a corporate gal in 2012 when she was doing an internship at Tisch13. In the same year, the now-PR-manager departed from the firm and joined iCrossing GmbH, again as an intern, and worked there till 2017, serving there for approximately 5 years. However, now Shalimar has risen to a more pronounced position. Word on the street is, she has been working as a campaign manager at “addfame GmbH,” a German influencer marketing agency, and one of the bests in the country at that!
Shalimar Heppner smitten by David Alaba
It seems with these two, it was a case of love at first sight. They started dating in 2017 but didn’t make their relationship public until 2018, when they arrived at the Oktoberfest in Bavaria together. Way to steal the attention! Instagram soon began to buzz with the lovely news of their relationship, and needless to say, Shalimar’s popularity on social media soared.
The model welcomes a child
In 2019, some two years after the couple started dating, Shalimar and David welcomed their first child. Though the name of the child is a big hush-hush, as the pair chose to keep his identity a secret, we do know it’s a boy! The Bayern Munich star was photographed holding the baby while kissing his little feet. The baby must have indeed been showered with love, and we suppose during the initial days, David would’ve liked nothing more than just staying back at home. But duty calls.
Where is she now?
Shalimar is currently living in Munich and is enjoying every bit of it. Though, she doesn’t shy away from relishing a vacation once in a while. David and Shalimar are together and in love more than ever. It doesn’t seem like marriage anytime soon is on the cards, but their union appears to be stronger than a signature on a piece of paper. And now there’s a baby too, to occupy all their leisure time!
