Theo Walcott wife – Melanie Slade, is what you would expect from the Premier League star while ranking high against all the other footballer’s wives we have written about. So let’s dive deep into the Walcott’s personal life, marriage, and family history.
Ex-Arsenal and England player, Theo, is currently signed to Everton FC in Merseyside. Where the Walcott’s live with their two children, Finley James, and Arlo Walcott. [Exclusive new images of their house down below]
Theo Walcott Wife – Melanie Slade
Melanie Slade was born in England on the 22nd of October 1988. Thus making her thirty-two years old and a Libra. She is currently employed as a sports physiotherapist, and we are sure Theo will be keeping her busy during their marriage!
One could say she has two claims to fame, first being married to Theo, of course. The second being she was once an actress and even hit the big stage when she landed a role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Although it wasn’t the biggest role, it was a role nonetheless. She was the friend of Hermione Grainger. Next time you watch the movie look out for her; she was sitting beside Hermione during the Gryffindor Quidditch tryouts.
Mel Walcott is quite the opposite of the typical footy ‘Wag’. Extremely private and doesn’t release much information about herself or the Walcott family.
Girlfriends, Marriage & Family
Theo Walcott met his girlfriend and future wife in Southampton. A simple shopping trip at the West Quay shopping centre back in 2004 led them to cross paths and never look back. Theo was 15, and Mel Slade was 16 at the time, making them childhood sweethearts.
We believe Mel Slade wasn’t just his first love but also his first and only girlfriend. Fast forward to New Year’s Eve 2012, and after eight years of dating, Theo finally proposed to Mel, which she happily accepted. The pair were married shortly after in 2013, set in Tuscany, Italy, with friends and family.
The Walcott’s decided not to waste any time with children, their first son, Finley Walcott, was born in 2014. followed by their second son, Arlo Walcott, in 2016.
Both boys being healthy and interested in following Theo, being huge football fans. However, Melanie did reveal that Finley received emergency heart surgery to correct a heart deficit at 8 weeks old.
