Rafael Marquez Marries Long Time Girlfriend Model Jaydy Michel

Here is a rough Spanish to English translation of an article on

The Mexican player, Rafael Marquez, who plays for the Red Bulls of MLS, married the model Jaydy Michel, on a beach in Manzanillo, Colima.

According to the website the couple, who had four years of courtship said yes on 4 January and invited only family and closest friends, including Pavel Pardo, captain of America.

“Rafa”, who also played for the club Barcelona of Spain, had a previous relationship with actress Adriana Lavat They had two children and divorced in October 2007, while the model Jaydy Michel was married to singer Spanish Alejandro Sanz, who has a daughter and split in 2005.

With rumors of a possible pregnancy of the model, the representative of Marquez denied the fact.

Red Bulls' Marquez buys $6.4M Chelsea apartment

Mexican soccer star Rafael Marquez -- now of the Red Bulls -- and his stunning model girlfriend Jaydy Michel will soon be bringing more glamor to Chelsea.
The soccer stud just closed on a six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath, 4,000-square-foot loft at 257 West 17th St. that had an asking price of $6.39 million.
The apartment includes 20 oversized windows, 10-foot 5-inch inch ceiling heights and double-layered walls, as well as an eat-in kitchen and lots of storage space. There are also three bedroom wings, including one wing with two bedrooms and a playroom. (Marquez has two kids, Santiago Rafael and Rafaela, with his ex- wife, Mexican actress Adriana Lavat.)

The master bedroom wing includes a custom-built wood office.
The buyer's agents, Brown Harris Stevens brokers Dennis Mangone and Pablo Alfaro, could not be reached for comment.

Marquez signed with the Red Bulls two days after being released by his old Barcelona team, where he was captain. His ex- Barcelona teammate Thierry Henry also joined the Red Bulls, and splurged even more on real estate.

Henry bought a $14.85 million triplex in SoHo last fall on Crosby Street. He has since boasted about how easy it is to get to practice in New Jersey by jumping on the PATH train.
Perhaps Marquez was thinking about the commute as well, as his new posh pad is also near a PATH train.


Congratulations... I guess
