Ms. Wechsler’s boyfriend, Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain, was born on December 10, 1987. He’s originally form Brest, Finisterre, France, but left the country when he was 10 months, and didn’t return to France until the FIFA World Cup of 1998. Higuain holds a French passport, even though he doesn’t speak the language, but his father was actually naturalized in France.
The Juventus striker is the son of the Argentine former soccer player Jorge Higuain, who played as an expatriate for Stade Brestois 29. He was nicknamed “Pipa”, and that’s why Gonzalo is called “Pipita” after him. He positively applied for the Argentine nationality in January 2007. Higuain has two older brothers, Nicolas and Federico, and a younger one, Lautaro.
Lara’s boyfriend started his career with Argentine club River Plate in 2005 and was transferred two years later for €12 million to Real Madrid. He jumped onto the world soccer stage in 2006 after being named Breakthrough Player on Argentina’s Torneo Apertura. Higuain started playing for the Argentinian national team in 2009. Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis announced in 2013 that Higuain joined the Italian club after passing his medicals and signing a five-year deal to join Napoli for €40 million. After a month of transfer speculation, Gonzalo joined rivals Juventus on July 26, 2016, for a fee of €90 million.
The former Real Madrid striker was said to be in a relationship with Spanish journalist Daniela Saurwald until early 2016. Higuain and Lara Wechsler were first linked in February 2016, while the couple was photographed in their native Argentina, but they made their romance official until August.
Little is known about Lara and her relationship with the soccer player. What we do know is that Ms. Wechsler is a stunning 25-year-old model that, according to some sites, was a student at the time she met Higuain, while he was playing in Spain with Real Madrid. It is said that Lara comes from a formal and serious family. You can follow her on Facebook if you want to see more pictures of her!
The couple recently faced a big scandal: Higuain started sending direct messages on Instagram to an 18-year-old Italian model named Antonella Fiordelisi, who is known for posting hot pictures of herself wearing bikini. We don’t know how this could affect Lara and Gonzalo’s relationship, but we hope they are still together!
