OLIVIER GIROUD has become France’s all-time top goal-scorer at the World Cup in Qatar.
And one woman who has been by his side through it all is his wife of 11 years Jennifer.

American Jennifer, aged 38, is notoriously private but has been known to open up on Twitter now and again.
So, what is Jennifer best known for?
Some might say the fact that Jennifer remained tight-lipped after Olivier was spotted inviting a model to his hotel room prior a Premier League match in 2014.
But actually it’s more likely the fact Jennifer was blamed for denying Olivier a move from Arsenal to Everton several years ago.
And she also dug her heels in when Giroud looked like becoming the makeweight in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s transfer to the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018.
At the time French journalist Julien Laurens told BBC Radio 5 Live:

“I think Giroud will do very well in Germany if he ends up there.
“I didn’t ask Jen, his wife … if she really didn’t want him to move to Everton, for example, because she didn’t want to move away from London to go to Liverpool I’m not sure what she’s going to feel once she discovers Dortmund.”
It was later revealed that Giroud actually turned Dortmund down because of the imminent birth of his third child.

Where have the Girouds been seen out together recently?
Olivier, now an AC Milan player, and Jennifer headed out to fancy London venue the Chiltern Firehouse recently.
The restaurant was also popular on with guests at the Royal Wedding, who reportedly headed there after Harry and Megan’s evening gala reception.
Where else have they been snapped?
They’ve enjoyed holidays in Sardinia, wading into the ocean on the beach and relaxing on sun loungers while they mingled with other holiday makers on the Italian island.
How many children do the couple have?
Jennifer and Olivier have a daughter named Jade who was born in 2013. Their son, Evan, was born in 2016. In 2018 their son Aaron was born and in 2020 they welcomed a daughter called Aria.
