Former Black Stars midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng is set to walk long time partner Melissa Satta down the aisle in his ‘second home’ of Italy in a ceremony later today.
The private ceremony would be held at a villa in the Italian resort town of Sardinia, an exotic location for an exotic couple.
Boateng and Satta have been together for close to five years, and their union has been blessed with a son, 2 year old Maddox Prince.
Melissa Satta was born on February 7, 1986, in Boston, Massachusetts. Her Italian parents were in the U.S. for business purposes because her dad, Enzo Satta, was working as an architect. As such, Melissa spent a lot of her early years on planes, flying back and forth between the U.S. and Sardinia.
Even with all the traveling, Melissa kept busy by being active. Her main pastimes were sports-., as she played soccer and also studied karate, which peaked when she was a junior karate champion and finished third in the Italian championships. Melissa realized at a certain point that she wanted to model, so at 16, she thought she’d test it out in Sardinia.
The 30-year-old is presently an Italian television presenter and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.
