The woman behind the ultra-succesful Zlatan Ibrahimovic is Helena Seger, a former model, actress and mother of his two sons. They have been together since 2002.
Helena is hardly your typical WAG, a former children’s TV presenter and economics graduate from a smart middle-class background, the 47-year-old was a successful marketing executive with her own country house and Mercedes sports car when they met outside a bureau de change at Malmo.
It wasn’t love at first sight though, she thought Zlatan was a crude, flashy, unsophisticated young man.
Zlatan has been quoted saying that she keeps him level headed and rightly so, at 47 years, 36-year-old Zlatan has a lot to learn from her.
He was once asked what he had bought his partner for her birthday. Pokerfaced he replied: ‘Nothing, she already has Zlatan.’
