The couple started dating in 2021 although they did not go public with their relationship until early 2022.

The Spanish international joined Premier League side, Chelsea, in 2018, in a transfer worth €80 million (£72 million).

Andrea Martinez is a Spanish beauty queen and national titleholder.

Chelsea’s former goalkeeper and technical and performance advisor, Petr Čech, was among those that congratulated the couple on their exciting news.

While former teammate Ross Barkley wrote: “Congrats bro.”

And the club said: “Congratulations to you both!”

Kepa is currently the London club’s backup goalkeeper behind Édouard Mendy.

Andrea, who used to play basketball and can speak fluent English, Spanish and Italian, has now joined Kepa in London although for work reasons she will continue to travel around the world, according to Hola magazine.
