The 25 year old has had a noticeable short career as a T.V host mainly associated to the Next top model shows.

The couple who met through acquaintances instantly hit it off! They have such a strong connection that caused moral mayhem when they posed for the cover of GQ magazine as Khedira posed with her in a tuxedo.


Known as the “German Beckhams” the couple sure seems to enjoy each other and are having a great time but when asked during an interview about their plans for the future the couple said:

Sami: We’ve been together for a year and everything is wonderful.
Lena:  We’re young, we’re happy to have each other. Plans are unnecessary.

After that it was reported the couple will tie the knot after the championships were over but we are still waiting on that, we also have to remember they have pretty busy schedules, the 5 ft 10 blue eye beauty splits her time between NY and Berlin but now Madrid might as well be her second home since she spends most of her time there to be close to her man.

She definitely is the one to overshadow the rest of the flock of WAGS! wouldn’t t you think!


Sami Khedira and Lena announced their split in July 2015, they dated for four years, two of those they were engaged. It was reported that Lena moved on, the lucky guy is Kilian Müller-Wohlfahrt, 35,  the son of Bayern Munich’s doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt. Lena later confirmed the relationship. Khedira remains single.
