Alex Curran (now Gerrard) was born on 23rd September 1982 in Liverpool and is an English model, fashion columnist and wife of Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard. She is described as a leading "WAG" of the England national football team, along with women such as Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney. She started dating Gerrard in 2002, when she was a nail technician and they later married in June 2007. They have two daughters, Lilly-Ella, born February 2004 and Lexie, born May 2006. She has been moderately successful in her own career rather than relying on the shirt-tails of her husband - in October 2007, she launched her own fragrance, named "Alex", which went on to be one of the top sellers of the year.
