Talking about the couple Gareth Bale and Emma have known each other for a decade. They first met each other at the Whitchurch High School in Cardiff. But have kept the relationship a private affair and the two got engaged in 2016. As per reports, Emma and Gareth will tie the knot later this year at, at the historic Vincigliata Castle in Tuscany.

Gareth is known to be a family person and the fans still recollect the visuals where he was seen celebrating the nation’s victory with his daughter. Back then he had said, "It was an amazing moment, I hadn’t seen my family in three weeks, so it was emotional when she ran on the pitch. To celebrate with my family and my daughter running around like a wild child is a memory to never forget and I have pictures and videos to look back on in future. She is quicker than me when I was younger!"
