Ricardo Kaka is one of the greatest players to grace the game of soccer in the recent era. The Brazilian was a part of the squad that won the 2002 World Cup in Brazil. Known to be a gentleman on and off the pitch, the former AC Milan star was recently claimed to be “too perfect” by his former wife, Carol Celico, which she revealed was the reason for their divorce. After 10 years together, in 2015, the former couple decided to call it quits via social media. However, that’s not the end of the fairytale, as both have found love again.

While Kaka is now married to Brazilian model Caroline Dias, his former wife Carol also tied the knot two years after her ex-husband.

Caroline who is 36 years old, started dating Juliao in 2016, a year after her divorce from Kaka. The couple then got married in 2021 in a traditional church ceremony in Sao Paolo followed by an open-air celebration. Now reports suggest that she is pregnant, and the couple is reportedly expecting their first child together.

But the former couple were in a long-term relationship. Kaka and Cecelio met during their teens and got married in 2005. They have two children together, son Luca aged 15, and daughter Isabella aged 12.

In contrast to her relationship with Kaka as stated above, Cecelio claimed to share a vibrant bond. In 2021 she was reported to say, “Since the day we started going out, we’ve never left each other’s side. He brings out the best smiles and the truest laughs. Light, intelligent, and cheerful, he loved me for who I am and was always willing to listen to me. I love you, my love,” citing him to be a perfect match for her. Overall, it looks like both Kaka and Celio seem to be on a different journey and have found what they want.
