Rangers boss Steven Gerrard and wife Alex's 14 year marriage from LA to Glasgow


Rangers boss Steven Gerrard and his wife Alex celebrate 14 years of marriage today with the 40-year-old footballer taking to Instagram to wish his wife a happy anniversary.

The duo have built a strong long-distance relationship, between their journey to parenthood, moving to LA and more recently going the distance between their home in Liverpool and Steven’s job in Glasgow.

Steven and model Alex Curran got together in 2002 and welcomed daughters Lilly-Ella and Lexie before tying the knot in 2007 in a lavish ceremony in Buckinghamshire.

The Liverpool captain wore a pale grey suit while Alex donned an embellished princess style dress, complete with a long white veil as the pair said I do at glamorous mansion Cliveden House.

Four years later, in 2011, the Gerrard family expanded and they welcomed another daughter, Lourdes on November 1.

The couple briefly moved to Los Angeles in 2015 when Steven signed an 18-month deal with LA Galaxy , which was said to be worth £4million a year. The club is said to have put the couple and their three daughters up in a £16.8m home.

Speaking about the move to The Mirror in 2015, Alex said it was the right decision for their family.

She said: “He has an 18-month deal, but I hope he gets it extended because it’s great here,” says a bubbling Alex.

“I’d love to stay here longer. It’s so different to ­Liverpool, but I think we’ll be really happy.”

The couple made a joint decision to up sticks to LA after the Liverpool captain stunned the football world in 2014, when he announced he was quitting the club he signed for at nine.

Alex said at the time: “Steven ­obviously thought about it for a long time. It wasn’t easy.”

Any big European club like Real Madrid or AC Milan would have snapped up Steven, but Alex says it was never an option.

“We chose here (LA) because of the language,” she explains.

“They speak English in America. In Spain or Italy, the barrier would have been difficult for all of us, especially the kids.”

But a year on, the couple reportedly were homesick and missed their life back in England.

After his second season with LA Galaxy, Gerrard returned to the UK with his family.

He was also appearing at various charity events and acting as a football pundit when his career took a major turn.

On the 4th of May, 2018, Gerrard signed with Rangers Football Club as their next manager after a tough few seasons.

While the doting dad-of-four made the move to Govan, his wife and children stayed put in Merseyside.

He told the Daily Mail at the start of the year that it was hard being separated from his family.

He said: “It comes with its challenges, in terms of the family situation and I am not going to be at Rangers forever,”

“I understand that. I have got dreams of one day going down south and managing teams down there but I am in no rush, I haven’t got a date or a time so I haven’t really thought too much about what Jamie said in that interview.

Gerrard added: “They have got a fantastic, world class manager, they are on a real wave of success and as a fan that is an unbelievable place to be in and I am really proud of the club and the efforts of the last couple of years and I’m loving seeing Liverpool where they are right now.

“I need to focus on the job I’m in now which is a fantastic opportunity for me and a huge job.”

The Liverpool legend is hotly tipped to be the man who replaces Jurgen Klopp in the Anfield dugout when the German boss’s contract expires at the end of the 2023/24 season, the same year in which Gerrard’s own deal in Glasgow is up.
