Dutch Actress Sylvie van der Vaart is the Wife of Rafael van der Vaart

April 1, 2008

Sylvie van der Vaart is married to footballer Rafael van der Vaart and has been called Holland’s sexiest female. See video, photos and a biography below.

Sylvie van der Vaart married Ajax Amsterdam soccer player, Rafael van der Vaart on June 10, 2005. They are such a popular couple in Holland that their wedding was covered live on SBS (Scandinavian Broadcasting Services) and received very high broadcast ratings. The two moved to Germany in the summer of 2005 when Rafael began playing for Bundesliga football club in Hamburger. They have one son, Damián Rafael, who was born on May 28, 2006.

Sylvie van der Vaart was born Sylvie Meis on April 13, 1978. She started her modeling career when she was 18 years old. She did several photo shoots but soon was being offered acting jobs. She was successful performing on popular Dutch television shows. She performed in the Dutch television series ‘Costa’. She discontinued regular television appearances when the couple moved to Germany but has continued to do single appearances on television shows, presenting at awards shows and videos. She has also introduced her own jewelry line, Pure by Sylvie, which has been very successful in the Dutch and German markets.

Not surprisingly, Sylvie was elected Holland’s sexiest female in 2003. She was elected the prettiest woman in the German league her husband plays with and gets a great deal of coverage with any of her appearances in public. She is so attractive that it has become a problem for her to attend her husband’s games. The opposing teams often hurl insults at her in order to affect Rafael’s game.

I’m wondering why we haven’t seen more of this Scandinavian beauty here in the United States! There are photos and a video after the jump. The video is not in English, but I figure you won’t care about what they are saying anyway. :)

    Thanks McCain :)

    Thanh – I went back and checked the picture and its credited as being Sylvie. I decided to remove it anyway. You are right, it looks just like Cheryl Cole – so maybe it was mis-identified in the original photo. Thanks for the heads-up.
