In a video uploaded to Chana’s Instagram Story, she announced that the couple had welcomed a puppy to the family, sharing a video of the dog running in the grass, alongside the caption: “Welcome to the family”, with a blue heart emoji.

Chana and Sven keep their relationship fairly quiet, but the Amsterdam born beauty did post a loved up snap of the pair from the pitch and an equally as cute caption to her social media in May, expressing her pride towards her boyfriend.

Given her fashion and artistic background, Chana is also known to post outfit looks to her Instagram feed, as well as travel content.

Her most recent upload to her Instagram feed was a video of herself walking towards the San Siro stadium in Milan, from the day of the UEFA Champions League match between Newcastle United and AC Milan on Tuesday, September 19.

In the clip, which was captioned: “food, fashion, football and my lovely girlies”, Chana showcased her figure in a long-sleeved cropped green top which she paired with light blue denim jeans and a white shoulder bag.

Sven currently has a knee injury, and has missed the last four Newcastle United matches due to this. The team are hoping to have the Dutch player back on the pitch for the match against Crystal Palace on Saturday, October 21, which will take place at St James’ Park.
