Yannick Carrasco stunned the world when he left Atletico Madrid for China in his mid-twenties. It was deemed as a career suicide at that time, but perhaps Yannasco thought the company of his beautiful wife and money were all he needed to have a happy life. Who is Yannic Carrasco’s wife, you asked? It’s former Miss Belgium, Noemi Happert. Undoubtedly, she would make it to the top 50 Football WAGs list.

How Did Noemie Happart And Yannick Carrasco Meet?
Noemie Happart and Yannick Carrasco met at a bar in Liege in 2015.
Fun fact, none of them knew who they were when they met the first time. Carrasco was playing for Standard Liege at that time. Happart was more prominent in her career as she was named Miss Belgium only two years before. They learned about each other’s professions in their fifth meeting.
Noemie Happart told Belgian magazine’’Story’’ that she was having second thoughts about going into a relationship with a footballer. Carrasco was early into his career, so she was not sure that Carrasco was looking for a serious commitment. But the Belgium international won her over with his charm and exchanged rings with her two years down the road.

Around 400 guests, including many of Carrasco’s Belgium national team colleagues, were in attendance.

Noemie Happart did not progress in her career following her Miss World and Miss Universe campaigns. She did some big modelling jobs but could not build a supermodel profile. Happart had Miss Belgium fame and a celebrity husband, which sounds like the ultimate recipe for a successful modelling career. While she enjoyed sporadic success, it can’t be said that she has fulfilled her potential.
Do Noemi Happart And Yannick Carrasco Have Children?
Noemi Happart and Yannick Carrasco are expecting their first child together in 2023.

The camera caught the couple sharing a kiss. Unfortunately, at the end of the match, Atletico had to suffer an agonising defeat.
But, Noemie Happart did not leave her husband’s side. In 2020, a brief rumour was going around that Happart is no longer Yannick Carrasco’s wife as the couple filed for divorce. But, it did not take long for the world to know that those rumours were baseless.
