Marriages Steven Gerrard, June 2007 – present

Alex Gerrard was born Alexandra Curran in 1982. She’s very close to her mother Kim Clayton, who walked her down the aisle at her wedding.

Born in Aintree, Merseyside, Alex was raised in nearby Maghull and attended Maghull High School.

After leaving school, Alex worked as a nail technician.

She was in a relationship with businessman Tony Richardson before hooking up with footballer Steven Gerrard in 2002. Oddly, Tony went on to date Steven’s ex Jennifer Ellison.

Alex and Steven welcomed a baby named Lilly-Ella in February 2004 and had their second girl Lexie in May 2006.

While engaged to Steven, Alex Gerrard was nicknamed an ‘über-WAG’.

In June 2007, the couple married in a £500,000 ceremony at Berkshire’s luxury Cliveden House. Their two children served as bridesmaids.

Guests included Sheree Murphy, Harry Kewell and Michael Owen.

In November 2011, Alex Gerrard gave birth to her third daughter Lourdes and she and Steven settled down in their Formby, Merseyside mansion.

Alex continued to support Steven in his career with both Liverpool FC and England.

She was delighted when Steven was made Liverpool captain in 2003, five years after his debut. In 2012, the pair celebrated him becoming England captain.

However, things haven’t always been so blissful for Alex.

She was arrested on suspicion of assault following an altercation in Liverpool in 2006, although the charges were later dropped.

In December 2007, the family’s home was burgled when Steven was abroad playing with Liverpool. Alex was inside and was confronted by four masked robbers.

The gang were reportedly after a £10,000 watch Alex had bought her husband for Christmas. He was the sixth Liverpool player to be targeted while away working.

Aside from her WAG status, Alex has kept herself in the limelight by collaborating with fashion brands on clothing ranges.

She launched her first Forever Unique By Alex Gerrard collection in 2010, which was so successful she created a second in 2011.

In 2013, Alex was unveiled as a model for Lipsy’s VIP Collection.
