Alex Curran (Gerrard) (born 23 September 1982 in Aintree, Merseyside) is an English model, fashion columnist for the Daily Mirror and the wife of Liverpool and England footballer Steven Gerrard. She is described as a leading "WAG" (Wives And Girlfriends) of the England national football team, along with women such as Victoria Beckham and Coleen Rooney. In 2007, the Times referred to her, then Steven Gerrard's fiancée, as an "über-WAG". On 29 October 2007, Curran launched her own fragrance, named "Alex", which has been one of the top sellers of 2007. A former nail technician, Curran was raised in Maghull, and attended Maghull High School. Curran and Steven Gerrard have been a couple since 2002. Prior to her relationship with Gerrard, Curran was dating businessman Tony Richardson, while Gerrard was dating Jennifer Ellison. At some point in 2002, Curran and Ellison switched lovers; The Guardian wrote, "who stole whom off whom is still the subject of some debate and perhaps Ellison's autobiography". Curran and Gerrard married on 16 June 2007, at the Cliveden House luxury hotel in Buckinghamshire. They have two daughters, Lilly-Ella (born 23 February 2004) and Lexie (born 9 May 2006) and live in Formby, Merseyside. On 11 December 2007, while husband Steven Gerrard was away playing with Liverpool, the couple's home was burgled while she and another female resident were inside. Curran was confronted by four masked robbers who were reportedly there for a £10,000 watch that Curran had bought for Gerrard for Christmas. On the same day she had mentioned the watch in Closer magazine. Gerrard was the sixth Liverpool player to be burgled while away playing footbal.
