Cesc Fabregas has married the “woman of his dreams” at the palatial venue where Meghan Markle will stay the night before marrying Prince Harry.
The Chelsea midfielder wore a black tuxedo as he tied the knot with long-term partner Daniella Semaan, the mother of his three children, at Cliveden House in Berkshire.
Daniella’s Instagram shared a photo of the Spain star, 31, guiding the mum-of-five through an arch of white flowers at the five-star country house.The 42-year-old from Lebanon posted the words: “Just married to this handsome man that I adore.”
Their three children were at the wedding – daughters Lia, five, and Capri, three, plus son Leonardo, one. Daniella’s two older children from her marriage to property tycoon Elie Taktouk, Maria and Joseph, also attended.Fabregas has little time to relax in wedded bliss, though.
After Chelsea’s disappointing fifth-place finish in the Premier League was confirmed on Sunday, he is preparing for next month’s World Cup, for which his selection seems all but guaranteed.
He first met Daniella when she asked for an autograph for her son Joseph in Japanese restaurant Nozomi in Knightsbridge, London, seven years ago.
Now they have got married at a venue where the opulent facilities and 376-acre grounds will become famous this weekend due to the Royal Wedding.
Famous past guests include Winston Churchill, the Queen Mother and Charlie Chaplin.
But the property is also accessible on the cheap for “normal” people.
You can go on an official tour for £2, or £1 for children, because it is on a National Trust estate.
