Footballers, just like other people, fall in love and have a family. They too spend their holidays and special occasions with their significant others and children, if they have any. Their partners are aware of the pressure of their jobs and the scrutiny they are under. And, sometimes, they too are in the limelight - whether they want it or not.
The beautiful wives and girlfriends of the Aston Villa team bring glamour and style to the team, along with being supportive partners. Some of them are famous in their own right and others became so by association.
However, among those in the current Aston Villa F.C. team not all are married or are dating. One of the AVFC footballers, Danny Ings, got married recently to Anastasia Smith. They had welcomed a child earlier in the year. While many of them have been with their partners for a long time.
