About Kevin-Prince and Melissa Satta
Kevin-Prince Boateng is a German-Ghanaian professional footballer who last played for Milan as a midfielder. Boateng is known for his strength, footspeed and ball-juggling tricks. A 2014 profile on FIFA’s official website described Boateng as “blessed with strength, speed, killer instinct in front of goal, and an uncommon flamboyance in the attacking third.” Born on the 6th of March, 1987, Prince Boateng is 29 years old.
Melissa Satta is an Italian television presenter and communications expert. She spent her youth in the island of Sardinia, land of origin of her parents. She was a showgirl in the Italian satirical series Striscia la notizia. Satta has appeared in Maxim magazine and was featured in the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Satta lives and works in Italy. Born February 7, 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, she is 30 years old.
Kevin-Prince Boateng and Melissa Satta have been together since 2011. They had a son, Maddox Prince two years ago.
The footballer and the model were feared to have been going through some problems in their relationship earlier this year, but the couple may have managed to settle their differences, and make their relationship official.
Melissa had earlier indicated that a formal wedding does not really matter to her and her long term boyfriend Prince Boateng, but when Maddox was born, the duo felt it was just the right thing to do – deeming it necessary to provide a sort of protection for their child, as well as a glue to unite the family.
