Joana Sanz is the supermodel wife of Dani Alves who married turned down TWO proposals before secret Ibiza wedding

The 25-year-old, who has strutted her stuff for Jimmy Choo, Gucci and Philipp Plein, turned down TWO proposals before eventually saying 'I do' to the Brazilian legend.

Sanz, who boasts more than 600,000 Instagram followers, is now living in Paris having moved to the French capital with husband Dani Alves.

Joana and Dani, 35, started dating in 2015, after they were introduced by a mutual friend while the Brazilian right-back was still at Barcelona.

Joana had been sharing a flat with the girlfriend of one of Alves' business partners.

After a year in Turin, where Alves won Serie A and the Coppa Italia and got to the final of the Champions League with Juventus, the pair were on the move again.

But before joining Paris Saint-Germain, Dani and Joana were off to Ibiza where they were married in secret.

The wedding took place on the island of Formantera, but little is known about who was in attendance or what went on.

Despite posting often to their social media channels, both Joana and Dani stayed remarkably silent for their secret ceremony.

Few pictures have been seen.

And Alves – a six-time La Liga and three-time Champions League winner – broke a cardinal rule at a wedding… he wore white.

We suppose it's OK if you're the groom, but Alves then made another fashion faux pas by matching his white three-piece with trainers.

There was some pre-wedding drama as well.

In Spanish gossip magazine La Vanguardia, Joana revealed that she actually turned down TWO Dani Alves proposals before deciding to marry him after a third.

She revealed: "Dani asked me in the hotel room alone. We do not like [putting on a show].

"It was splendid… he already asked me three times."

The glossy also revealed that Joana was wearing two of her engagement rings.

Joana has been a frequent visitor at the Fifa Best and Ballon d'Or awards evenings, rocking up to the red carpet alongside arguably the best right-back of his generation.

Born in September 1993, Joana shot to fame as a model at 17 after appearing in the Supermodel of the World contest for top modelling agency Ford.

Joana and Dani are yet to have children of their own, but she has become like a second mother to his two kids, Daniel and Victoria.

She says the secret to their relationship is laughter.

Joana said it would be "impossible" for the couple to not find each other funny.

"There is humour for a while and I think that over the years it will be more," she said.

"It also unites us a lot that we think exactly the same.

"We finish [each other's] sentences. It's scary."
