The ex-Man City ace, now playing in Saudi Arabia, and his Cheshire-born missus are clearly a match made in heaven and cannot get enough of one another.

This time they said their 'I do's' in the wondrous setting of Lake Como, Italy at the exclusive Villa Balbiano, where the Hollywood movie House of Gucci was filmed.

It's another chapter in their relationship that began in 2020.

Following a whirlwind romance, they secretly wed a year later.

Their love affair has continued to blossom as the years have passed.

Unlucky in love

Before they met one another, Mahrez and Taylor appeared unlucky in love.

She was linked to footballers Mason Holgate and the Algerian's former teammate Sergio Aguero, however happiness was short lived.

Mahrez was married to British model Rita Johal, after they met on London's Oxford Street, where he asked her out in 2012.

They married in 2015, but it wasn't to last - with the pair filing for divorce five years later.

Rita was in the headlines for 'chatting intently' to boxer Deontay Wilder in a Manchester nightclub, which reportedly left Mahrez devastated.

The reason why they divorced was never disclosed.

Finding each other

Ward and Mahrez met in 2020 in the street in Manchester when she was visiting a Christmas market, and soon fell madly in love with another.

They were soon engaged by 2021, after the winger whisked the beauty off to Mykonos for a stunning summer holiday.

While on their break way, it is believed he dropped to one knee and presented Taylor with a diamond sparkler worth an estimated £400,000.

In January, 2022 they walked down the isle in a secret traditional Islamic Nikah ceremony.

It was merely the start for the pair who love devoting themselves to each other.

Building a family

In the summer of 2022, Taylor and Mahrez welcomed their first child together.
