Interesting Details

Mike Comrie might not be a top NHL player and he may not even earn a roster spot on an NHL team this season, but we can’t let that take away from having arguably the most attractive and highest profile wife in the league.  Mike Comrie’s wife, Hilary Duff, is an American actress, who was born in 1987, making her 7 years younger than Comrie.

Acting Career

Hilary Duff rose to fame in 2001, after several years of television commercials and minor roles, when she was cast as Lizzy McGuire (the title character) for the hit Disney Channel television show.  After leaving the show following the 65 episode contract Duff continued to get many popular acting gigs when she was cast as the lead in A Cinderella Story beside Chad Michael Murray.  Some other well known movies that star Duff include, Agent Cody Banks, The Lizzy McGuire Movie, Raise Your Voice  and Cheaper By The Dozen.  Duff also guest starred in 6 episodes of Gossip Girl.  Duff is set to star as Bonnie in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde which should be released later this year.


Music Career

Duff has also had a very successful movie career having released four studio albums!  What can’t this girl do.  Her first album, Santa Claus Lane was released in 2002, while she was starring on Lizzy McGuire.  This first album was a holiday album, which lead many people to say that Metamorphosis, was her first proper studio album. Metamorphosis was extremely successful selling over 5 million copies worldwide. Songs, So Yesterday and Come Clean did very well as singles, charting at 42nd and 35th in the United States.  Her third album, the self titled Hilary Duff peaked at number 2 for album sales in the USA, while her fourth studio album, Dignity, hit 3rd.  Some other top Hilary Duff songs include Wake Up, With Love  and Our Lips Are Sealed.

Other Work

Duff has also been very successful with her clothing line, “Stuff By Hilary Duff”.  She has also released a perfume called “With Love….Hilary Duff”.

Time Together

Hilary dated Aaron Carter and Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, before starting to date Mike Comrie in 2007.  The two got married in August of 2010 and there relationship seems to have made Comrie forget how to play hockey.  Comrie who scored 60 points on two occasions in his career has only managed to put up a total of 27 points in one season since he started dating the singer/actress.  Maybe he’s happy to be a stay at home husband because he won’t have many more chances in the NHL if he keeps up his current play.

Rafael van der Vaart’s wife, Sylvie, was born on April 13th, 1978 (making her 5 years older than Rafael) and is a dutch model and TV personality.

Modelling

Sylvie decided to get into modelling at the age of 18 and did various shoots for many photographers and magazines.  This modelling opened the door for Sylvie to move into television which became more her passion.  That’s not to say you won’t see Sylvie gracing the cover of many Dutch magazines…

Television

Sylvie started out at FoxKids and TMF music television.  These gigs gained Sylvie notoriety and fame in the Netherlands, which allowed her to continue her career being featured in the Dutch TV show Costa.  Sylvie’s high profile romance with Rafael also landed her the job as the host of the 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year award (unfortunately she was not presenting the award to her husband).  When Rafael upgraded teams in a transfer to Real Madrid, the couple moved to Spain.  This move opened up more doors for Sylvie and she has been featured as a judge on a Das Supertalent and Let’s Dance.


Time Together

In 2003, after Sylvie was a household name and directly after she had just been elected the Netherlands’ Sexiest Female she began dating Rafael.  The two got married on June 10th, 2005 and they became the most famous Dutch soccer couple (Wesley Sneijder and wife Yolanthe Cabau van Kasbergen may have something to say about that these days…).  The two now have a son, Damian Rafael.

Breast Cancer

In mid 2009 Sylvie announced that she had breast cancer and had undergone surgery in May of the same year.  That summer Real Madrid was looking to sell Rafael, but he opted to stay with his wife, while she finished her cancer treatments.  Very noble of him.  You can now find Rafael playing for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
