Lena Gercke and Sami Khedira relationship

The charming couple first began dating in 2011, ten years ago. Nobody really knows how exactly they originally connected, but Lena Gercke and German footballer Sami Khedira once said in an interview that they were introduced by mutual friends. The duo started dating soon after their first meeting as they were very impressed by each other’s charm. Later, Lena moved to Madrid to stay with Khedira.

They successfully kept their relationship out of the public eye for the initial few years as they wanted to avoid excessive attention from the media. Still, Lena being a model and Khedira being a professional player, it was only a matter of time before their relationship got public.

The entire rumour and the presumptions were validated in 2012 when a photo of the amazing couple emerged on the cover of GQ magazine. Everyone then knew they were dating. 

However, the connection that everyone believed to be impenetrable ultimately fell apart. Lena Gercke and Sami Khedira’s breakup is claimed to have been caused by differences in viewpoint; specifically, Lena intended to become a mother of many children, something that Sami didn’t feel prepared for.

The fact that the couple didn’t welcome any children may have been the primary factor in their breakup. Sami wanted to maintain the status quo because she wasn’t prepared for such a significant role. Sami seemed to have a lot more to think about, with his career seemingly being the most significant of all. Khedira was just starting his professional career. We all know how much time and effort it takes to be a father, so perhaps Sami Khedira didn’t risk everything in his plans.
