Just in case you were wondering, the successful Brazil World Cup player Neymar is officially off the market. Who is Neymar's girlfriend? It's none other than the gorgeous (and successful!) Brazilian model and actress Bruna Marquezine.
Brazil World Cup player Neymar, 26, became the highest paid soccer player in the world last year after signing a contract worth more than $265 million dollars with Paris Saint-Germain. But, his career isn't the only part of his life that's been flourishing. His love life is going pretty well, too.
The soccer star has actually been in a relationship with the beautiful Bruna Marquezine, 22, since 2012 when they met at a carnival in Rio De Janeiro. Although the relationship has been on-and-off over the years, their romance definitely appears to currently be on judging from their respective Instagram pages, which feature photos of the pair together.
Since the relationship seems to be heating up, let's find out some of the details about the Brazil World Cup player's girlfriend. Here are some things to know about Bruna Marquezine.
1. Bruna has been acting since she was a child.
She started acting at a very young age, appearing in telenovelas, which are soap operas. She even won an award for Best Child Actress in 2003. Since then, the actress has appeared in numerous Brazilian shows and films.
2. She's also a successful model.

Bruna has almost 30 million followers on Instagram and it isn't hard to see why. Besides including posts of her famous soccer star beau, the actress also often posts stunning photos of her modeling career as well as shots from magazine covers that she's been on.
3. She grew up not far from where Neymar's family lives.
Bruna was born in Duque de Caixas, Rio De Janeiro and Neymar's family lives in Mogi das Cruzes, Sao Paulo, which is only 400 kilometers away. So the couple spent their childhood days only a few hours apart from each other's homes.
4. Bruna wants to be a mother.

In an interview, the actress and model confessed that one of her biggest dreams was to become a mother and to still continue with her career while being a parent. "I will continue working, but I will with my husband and be a mother of twins. My biggest dream is to be a mother," she said. Interestingly enough, Bruna happened to make these comments during one of her breaks with Neymar.
5. Neymar might have proposed to her.

In 2017, rumors were circulating that Neymar intended to propose to his girlfriend and had even bought a ring. However, Bruna quickly set the rumors straight. She said: “I wasn't asked to marry him and it wasn't because of his haircut. None of the websites got the right reason. Because, in fact, there doesn't need to be a reason." A friend of the couple stated that the proposal may have been the cause of their breakup last year, because Bruna wasn't ready to be married since she was still focused on her career.
6. Is Bruna planning to move to Paris with Neymar?
The soccer player will be based in Paris since he was transferred to play with the Paris Saint-Germain team. And his girlfriend is reportedly going to make the move with him from where she currently lives in Rio De Janeiro.
7. They both dropped their last names.
Neither Bruna or Neymar use their real last names. Bruna dropped her real last name, Reis Maia, in favor of Marquezine as a tribute to her grandmother. And Neymar's birth name is a little longer. The soccer player was named after his father and Neymar da Silva Santos Junior decided to shorten his name to Neymar Jr., or just Neymar as he's most commonly known.
We guess this will make it easier whenever the couple finally does decide to get married!
