Wesley Sneijder’s second wife is dutch actress Yolanthe Cabau van Kasbergen. I know, it’s quite the name, but she goes by simply Yolanthe Cabau.
Wesley, who is one year Yolanthe’s elder, began dating his soon to be wife in August of 2009, just a few months after his divorce from Ramona Streekstra. In December of the same year the Wesley and Yolanthe got engaged and the couple tied the knot on July 17th, 2010 only a few days after the Dutch’s heartbreaking loss in the finals of the World Cup. Sneijder and Cabau seem to be on the same page in all aspects of their lives, with Wesley even choosing to become catholic due to her inspiration.
Cabau is a very famous dutch actress who has had roles in many Dutch films including Snowfever, Turkse chick, and Het geheim van Mega Mindy. She was also a main character in the popular Dutch soap opera, Het Glazen Huis, from 2005 to 2008 acting in 255 episodes! Most recently Cabau acted in a show that she can very much relate to. It was a dutch show called Voetbalvrouwen, which translates to Footballer’s Wives (Soccer Wives). She fit right in!
When you read those films and see that Cabau was in a soap opera for many years it doesn’t really give you the right idea as to how popular she is in the Netherlands. But this little bit of information might give you a little better perspective. In 2006, 2007 and 2009 Yolanthe Cabau van Kasbergen was voted the sexiest babe of the year by the Dutch FHM magazine!
Cabau is the co-founder of a charity aimed at eliminating child abuse in countries such as Thailand. Her charity helps to prevent children from becoming prostitutes, freeing child prostitutes and helping children cope with the trauma after such an event. The charity is called the Stop Kindermisbruik Foundation and it’s a very worthy cause. Good on you Yolanthe Cabau!
