Profile Bio Text
Sylvie Françoise van der Vaart-Meis (born 13 April 1978, Breda), is a Dutch actress and presenter and current wife of footballer Rafael van der Vaart.
By her 18th birthday, Meis had decided that she wanted to be a model and was casted for various shoots by casting agencies. After television entered her life, she gained popularity through her jobs at FoxKids and music station TMF. She hosts several events at TMF, such as presenting the annual TMF-awards, conducting interviews with international artists such as Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue. In addition, she features in video clips and the Dutch TV-series “Costa”. In collaboration with the firm of JPC she also introduced the successful “Pure by Sylvie” jewellery line to the Dutch market.
After being elected Holland’s sexiest female in 2003, she started a relationship with then-Ajax soccer player Rafael van der Vaart. Due in part to the fame from their individual careers they soon become Holland’s most famous “soccer couple”. Their fame expands after their marriage on 10 June 2005 and live coverage of the wedding on SBS, with the broadcast gaining high ratings in Holland.
In September 2004, an Ajax Eredivisie league match against ADO Den Haag was temporarily halted by match officials due to incessant anti-Semitic chants by opposing fans directed at Meis.
Meis and Van der Vaart moved to Germany, when Van der Vaart left Ajax Amsterdam to play for Bundesliga football club Hamburger SV. After Van der Vaart`s 2008 transfer to Real Madrid, Meis and Van der Vaart moved to Spain. The couple`s first child, Damián Rafael, was born on 28 May 2006.
