Toby Alderweireld met his girlfriend Shani van Mieghem when the defender was still playing for Ajax. By now the couple are married.
Brunette Shani Van Mieghem is a professional beautician. As such, she worked for a television show about make-up and COSMETICS. Apart from that she loves riding horses.
Toby and Shani have known each other since they were young. Just like Toby, Shani is from Belgium. She followed her defender to the Netherlands and subsequently to England and Spain. The pretty lady married her football player in the summer of 2015: first in a civil ceremony at the Ekeren town hall, followed by a church wedding in the Antwerp cathedral.
Shani van Mieghem is not someone who likes to be in the spotlights, unlike some of the other players’ wives. She does have a Facebook-account and an Instagram-profile, but those are fairly locked down. Neither has the attractive brunette done any interviews as far as we know, which means we do not know a lot about her. They did share a sexy bedroom photo but it caused some commotion and unfortunately has been removed by now. It made the football player decide to give up Facebook altogether.
An all-time low for them was the time in which they were threatened by a hacker. The couple had to enlist the help of a computer professional to insure their cyber safety. ,,Shortly after Alderweireld and his girlfriend moved in together a number of messages arrived through Hotmail, without any basis in fact”, says Nico Cool, who aided the couple in that time.
Apparently it was told Alderweireld had an earlier relationship with Joyce Paardekam from Brabant, who was supposed to have met him as the daughter of Putte SK’s chairman. We do not know if the story is true, but we do not want to keep it from you either.
Anyway, Toby Alderweireld and Shani van Mieghem have completely found their happiness. You will most likely be able to spot Shani in the stands during the European Championship, fervently encouraging her defender.
