FORMER Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois is dating the stunning TV presenter ex of Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez, according to reports.
The Belgian shot-stopper’s new relationship was made public this week after photos emerged of him hand-in-hand with Spanish model and TV host Alba Carrillo.
The 32-year-old blonde, who divorced Lopez in 2017 just three years after they married, has also dated Spanish former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer Fonsi Nieto.
She said after photos of them strolling through Madrid were published by glossy magazine Semana: “We’re friends and we’re getting to know each other. I’m happy.”
Courtois announced his split from former partner Marta Dominguez, who he has two young children with, in April last year when he was still at Chelsea.
He went public on their break-up just before he was linked to Brit Delaney Royle.
Reports at the time said Delaney regularly travelled from her home in Chatham, Kent, to look after the goalie’s beloved pet Pomeranian Yoshi at his Surrey mansion.
The 19-year-old’s dad Jonathan insisted at the time speculation by pals that there might be more to the footballer’s friendship was misplaced and she only visited to look after his dog.
In October 2014 £4-an-hour tapas bar waitress Jeny Sanchez told how Courtois cheated on Tenerife-born Marta with her after they met online.
She told in an exclusive interview with a Sunday newspaper how the 26-year-old Belgian international wooed her over Twitter before bedding her in a £50-a-night hotel and sneaking her into five-star team hotels for pre-match romps.
In August 2015 Belgian model Emily Vanhoutte claimed she had a fling with the keeper behind Marta’s back.
Courtois, who had two spells at Chelsea before signing for Real Madrid in August last year after mentioning he wanted to live closer to his children, announced he was splitting with Marta when she was about to give birth to their youngest child Nicolas.
He said in a statement released in April last year: “My girlfriend Marta and I are no longer together.
“Since the beginning of September, we have decided to end our relationship on amicable terms.
“We both went our own way, even though she was already expecting our second child. She moved to Madrid, I stayed in London.
“We still love each other and we get along very well, but we don’t have a romantic relationship any more.
“But we don’t run away from our responsibilities. We are first and foremost parents of a beautiful princess, Adriana, and our about-to-be-born son Nicolas.
“We’ll strive to give our children the love and attention they deserve.
“Marta and I will be still present in each other’s lives, as good friends and the best parents for our two kids.”
Courtois and Alba are thought to have started dating at Christmas after being introduced by mutual friends.
The Spanish model split from her former husband less than a year after they wed and went to court over money she said he owed her following their acrimonious split before they completed their divorce.
