As if being a professional footballer isn't already incredible enough, those who get to play the beautiful game for a living also tend to land themselves hot girlfriends - and that pattern has certainly continued in the case of former Ballon d'Or winner and Brazil legend Kaka.


The World Cup winning veteran (currently plying his trade in the MLS with Orlando City) has confirmed via Instagram that he's dating fellow Brazilian Caroline Dias, who is - of course - a model.​

Posting pictures confirming their relationship on New Year's Eve, the 34-year-old Kaka certainly has plenty to smile about going into 2017, despite his new union ultimately coming about after the collapse of his 10-year marriage.

The former Milan and Real Madrid midfielder divorced his childhood sweetheart Caroline Celico in 2015, and it's nice to see that he may well have found love again heading into the new year.
