Is Stefan Married or Dating?
Stefan Lainer has managed to keep his romantic life details in the darkness and prefers to keep it that way. He is so much concerned about privacy that he is not available on any social media platforms.
However, it is assumed the footballer is currently in a relationship and even married. The assumption comes after Stefan's team-mate and close friend, Konrad Laimer shared a picture on May 29, 2019. In the picture, Konrad and his girlfriend, Ines-Sarah, were accompanied by Stefan and a girl named Ninam Lainer.
Moreover, in that picture, Stefan and Ninam were seemingly wearing a wedding dress, indicating that the picture was from their wedding.
However, without any official confirmation, it cannot be said, with full confidence, that Ninam is Stefan's wife. Furthermore, as Stefan isn't available on any social media platform and Ninam's Instagram handle is private, it is harder to confirm the theory.
Well, until Stefan reveals his relationship, his personal life remains a mystery.
