Toby Alderweireld is the kind of defender every club wants at the rear, but only Tottenham Hotspurs are lucky enough to have him. But who is the stunning wife of the Belgian center-back? Read on to know everything about Shani Van Mieghem.
Biography Of Shani Van Mieghem
Shani Van Mieghem was born on the 18th of May 1993 in Belgium. This makes her a Taurus, and looking at her husband’s loyalty, she indeed comes off as true to her sign through all ups and downs. By profession, the 28-year old is dressage. This requires her riding, nurturing, and training horses. It certainly seems the beautiful better half of the Spurs ace has an unreal fancy for horses, as her social media handles would suggest. From that, it’s not hard to guess that she absolutely loves her job. But little is known about the upbringing or the family life of the stunner.
A Passion For The Wildlife
Shani Van Mieghem has an unreal passion for horses. Her entire Instagram account is dedicated to the pictures of the majestic animal. Perhaps this love for the elegant creatures pushed the sensation into taking up a job that requires training and riding them. In the videos she shares with nearly 800 of her followers on Instagram, Shani is seen galloping magnificently on horses of all colors. She once featured on the cover of an esteemed equestrian magazine. This goes on to prove just how notable of an equestrian she is.
When The Two Met
Shani and Toby are childhood sweethearts. They had known each other nearly all their lives and must have started dating when they were just a bunch of teens. And over the years, the bond between the two has only gotten stronger. Even though Shani is a Belgian, she is based in the U.K, and perhaps it is because that the love of her life has his job in London. That indeed shows to what extent the duo is willing to go to stick with each other.
And They Finally Tie The Knot!
After dating each other for nearly their entire lives, Shani and Tobi made it official by tying the knot. The football maestro shared a picture of the duo from the big day, in which they are seen sitting in what seems like a cathedral and exchanging their vows of an ever-lasting bond. The ace signed off with a beautiful caption, underlining how it was the best day of his life and thanking the ones who made it possible. We can only guess how amazing it would have felt to marry the one you were always meant to be with.
The Honeymoon Period Lasted Quite A While
After the big ceremony, the newlyweds hopped on the plane and flew to the beautiful nation of Indonesia to spend their extravagant honeymoon. Toby must have relished the time doubly more, as it allowed him to unwind after those rigorous training sessions. He must have found Bali an excellent place to let his hair down and with his significant other no less. Pictures of the two having an excellent time with elephants and elegant dinners emerged shortly after the return. She recently celebrated her 28th birthday. Toby wished his wife a happy birthday on Twitter by posting an adorable couple photo and another picture of Shani riding a magnificent jet-black horse, with a cute caption as a cherry on the top.
A Big Happy Family!
Toby and Shani have been married for nearly six years now. They now have two adorable children, making them a happy family of four. Their first child, named Ayla, was born in September of 2018, not long after they got hitched most impressively. The announcement of the baby’s arrival was nothing short of grand either. The footballer had scribbled the year 2018 over the message “coming soon” and placed a tiny pair of shoes above it. So adorable! Shortly after the birth of their first little one, they welcomed their second child, named Jace. This was back in 2020. To date, the defender never gets tired of showering his kids and wife with love. He frequently shares delightful pictures of his family on social media.
