Luis Suarez, the 31-year football striker for the FC Barcelona, is 2 times European Golden Shoes, an Eredivisie Golden Boot, and a Premier League Golden Boot winner. The ace of the Uruguay National Team Suarez's achievements seems quite shadowed by the football megastars like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but his incredible love story and married life keeps him ahead of all others.
Suarez is married to his long-time lover Sofia Balbi, whom he credits as his inspiration for the football career upliftment. Suarez, with his 9 years of marriage, shares 2 children with his wife and is reportedly living a happy married life. Wanna know more about Suarez's relationships and children? Scroll down.
Luis Suarez's love story goes back in the time when he was a teenager working as a street sweeper in Montevideo after his parents separated. Reportedly, the couple: Suarez and Balbi met for the first time in 2002, while Suarez was 15 and Balbi was 13, and it was the love at first sight.
Well, the relationship of Suarez and Balbi is not less than a movie as after the Balbi family moved to Barcelona in 2003, he focused on his football career because all he needed was money to reach out there.
After he became a pro in 2006, Suarez moved to Europe and reunited with Sofia. Then after 3 years, Luis Suarez married his lovely wife, Sofia Balbi in 2009, though the wedding detail is not disclosed.
Well, reaching to Europe only was not all for Suarez, as Suarez's deep intention to live with his wife residing in Barcelona made him make his way out from Liverpool FC to FC Barcelona in 2014.
True love follows everywhere!
In the Golden Boot Ceremony in 2014, Suarez revealed his solid journey of love and even credit Sofia as his motivation for making him, who is he now. Suarez told:
"At 15, I found a girlfriend and that sorted my head out. It helped me realize how important football was for me."
Sounds really adorable!

The happy family is reportedly free from the mishaps of separation. Let's know more.
