For anyone who doesn’t know De Bruyne’s love story yet, you’re at the right place. Here’s the complete scoop on his relationship with Michèle, how they met, and what she does for a living.

The online meeting

Kevin De Bruyne met his better half Michèle De Bruyne (formerly known as Michèle Lacroix) on Twitter. This happened way back in 2014 when the footballer had only a handful of followers. What started with a harmless Tweet from Kevin’s side turned into a full-blown relationship in a few months.

As per People Magazine, this is what Kevin said about their meeting.

So I tweeted something about a match or whatever, and this pretty girl favorited it. I was single at the time, and my friend noticed it. So he said, 'She looks like a nice girl, no? You should send her a message.

But, Kevin didn’t have the confidence to do it, and his friend texted her on his behalf. And the rest was history.

Building a life together

Kevin and Michèle soon got closer and started dating after meeting each other online. This turned into a romantic wedding that took place in Italy in June of 2017. And since then, the couple has been very vocal about their love and adoration for each other on Instagram. And they soon built their very own home and family when they had three children Mason Milian (born in 2016), Rome (born in 2018), and Suri (born in 2020). They make a picture-perfect family, and often share images of each other on social media, with their children.
