Meghan King stumbled upon love again after her split from estranged husband Jim Edmonds — and found a perfect match in boyfriend Christian Schauf.The Real Housewives of Orange County alum was previously married to Edmonds for five years before Us Weekly broke the news in October 2019 that they had called it quits. The former couple share daughter Aspen, born in November 2016, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, born in June 2018.- Advertisement – As she continued to navigate her transition to single motherhood — and balance raising a family with exploring a new relationship — Schauf told the New York Post’s Page Six that he found his new flame’s strength “admirable” when it came to her divorce drama with Edmonds.“This is a 35-year-old woman with three kids under the age of 3 with an ex who is not that easy to deal with — and that is putting it in the nicest way possible — and then having every move you make played out at a scale she does, for her to continue to be positive and push ahead and have goals, and not let it overwhelm her,” he said in July 2020. “It’s really impressive to me.”- Advertisement – After facing a number of ups and downs in her dramatic split from the former St. Louis Cardinals player, King was ready to find The One — again. “I just want to hold somebody’s hand or get a hug and whether or not, in the age of coronavirus or not, as a single woman, I want to be partnered up. I want that relationship,” she said during an episode of her “Intimate Knowledge” podcast in April 2020. “It was never my idea to get divorced and yet here I am and I’m happier than ever now but I do want a partner.”One month later, King’s wish came true. Us confirmed in May 2020 that the former reality TV personality sparked a romance with Schauf, whom she later revealed she met on a dating app.“When I knew I had worked through my pain to the point where it wouldn’t define me or scar me but instead teach me, I knew I was ready to really date,” King wrote in a blog post about her budding romance in June 2020, describing her experience with virtual dating amid the COVID-19 crisis. “I shot for the stars and made a list of every last minute detail of the man I was looking for – my list was pages long – and daily I’d ask God to open my heart to the possibility of loving again.”- Advertisement – Scroll down to look back at King’s sweet relationship with Schauf.
AFCON 2019 Bronze medal winner with Super Eagles of Nigeria, Moses Simon, reached a new milestone in his career after he was voted into the Nantes Team of the Decade in a poll conducted by the club’s fans.The 24-year-old Nigeria international joined the Canaries on loan from Levante ahead of the 2019-20 season and made an immediate impact, having a hand in 17 goals (nine goals, eight assists) in 30 competitive outings.Ten of these goal involvements came in Ligue 1 where he scored five goals and provided another five assists as Nantes finished in 13th place, 14 points clear of the relegation zone with the season cancelled after 28 matchdays because of the coronavirus pandemic. Simon scored goals in wins against Amiens and Nice and a 3-3 draw at Dijon, while all his assists earned Nantes maximum points against Montpellier, Toulouse, Dijon, Nimes and Saint-Etienne.All of these were good enough for manager Christian Gourcuff to deem it fit to sign Simon on a permanent basis, which was announced last week.It caps off a fantastic moment for the former Gent player who was earlier voted as the Nantes Player of the Season by the club’s fans as well.Simon was flanked in a four-man midfield by Vincent Bessat, who made 140 appearances between 2011 and 2015, Valentin Rongier, who started out with Nantes in 2014 before joining last year, and Jordan Veretout, who began his career with the Canaries and featured 143 times from 2011 to 2015.In the two-man attack was Filip Djordjevic and Emiliano Sala. The former spent six years at the Stade de la Beaujoire, scoring 67 goals and providing 18 assists in 193 competitive games before moving to Lazio, while the latter netted 48 times before he died in a plane crash when travelling to Wales to complete a move to Cardiff City on January 2019.The defence is made up of Lima at left-back, Diego Carlos and Nicolas Pallois at centre-back, with Leo Dubois at right-back while Remy Riou was the goalkeeper.An astonishing feat for Simon in this selection is that he is the only player to have played just a season for the French club with the others spending up to four years there.The Africa Cup of Nations bronze medallist is also the player with the least outings (30) while most of the others appeared more than 100 times.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Moses Simon
