Lars-Kristian Eriksen's wife Caroline Berg Eriksen has become a popular topic of conversation in the past few days. And if you're anything like us, you have no clue who we're talking about.

Lars-Kristian Eriksen is a Norwegian soccer player who like every other European soccer player [Time-Out: Norway is in Europe, right? It is? OK, got it. Time-In] has a smokeshow wife. Lars, age 30, and and Caroline, age 26, had their first child on November 25, 2013. In the midst of the joy, and exhaustion that a new baby brings to any parents, Caroline took to Instagram to show off her post baby body. And with that, the internet exploded.

Caroline showed off a revealing selfie without a hint that she was 9 months pregnant less than a week earlier. As a fitness blogger, and typically in shape hardbody, she was obviously happy with the lack of permanent impact that the couple's newborn had on her body. Throughout the entire pregnancy, Caroline gained only 22 pounds, or less than what the typical American gained during the week their child was born.

The picture has cause quite a commotion with people weighing in on both sides of the debate. Some are impressed and call her an inspiration for mothers that a return to form can actually happen. Others are calling the pictures obnoxious, showing off and unrealistic, some going so far as to call them obscene.

For her part, Caroline defends her actions. In an interview with ABC News, Caroline said;

During the pregnancy, people kept telling me that my body will never be the same and I wanted to show everybody that's not entirely true. Right after birth, like three minutes after, I felt like myself again… I think that all women should be proud of themselves, regardless of how they look after labor.

To be honest, I wasn't exactly sure who Georgios Samaras was. I consider myself a big fan of soccer and follow several European Leagues. But Samaras plays for Celtic in the Scottish Premier League. The SPL is like Single A - outside of people living in each town, not many care about it. But Georgios Samaras' ex-girlfriend Alexandra Loizou certainly caught my eye, momentarily causing me to stop ignoring the SPL.

While the spotlight shined on Samaras and Loizou during Euro 2012, the couple have actually been together for much longer than that. First reports of the two dating are around the time of the 2008 World Cup. Loizou is a model, appearing in FHM and other similar magazines. Alas, just as we came to learn of the couple, Georgios split and found himself a new blonde. There are actually conflicting reports of whether they are married or just dating, but we found nothing firmly confirming the former.

Georgios Samaras' new girlfriend Katerina Kainourgiou is actually not a model, which breaks the trend we often see with athletes, especially soccer players. Kainourgiou is a TV journalist in Greece. The two have been dating since shortly after the Euro 2012 tournament ended. By the way, gotta love seeing him rock a Rondo jersey while on vacation with the new lady.

In addition to playing for Celtic, Samaras also plays for the Greek National team. Aside from their miracle Euro 2008 title, the team has not made very many headlines while utilizing a intensely defensive style of play.

I don't have a lot of background info on Borussia Dortmund keeper Roman Weidenfeller's girlfriend Lisa Rossenbach and truth be told who really cares? You'll have to live with one post where we don't talk about how they meet or where they shared their first kiss. What I am going to talk about is much more important than simple Facebook status filler.

Let's cut to the chase with this one and ask an important question: would you ever let your smoking hot girlfriend model the kit of the team you play for? Not only does Lisa do this but she also wears a jersey 5 sizes too small. Call me crazy but having my girlfriend model the kit of the team I play for strikes me as odd. Isn't that something Roman should have saved only for himself in the comfort of his palace in Germany? To top that off but the header for the ad is a knock on local rival and the opponent Roman will battle in the Champions League Final in 2013, Bayern Munich. Now since the ad is in German you need to trust me that it's a knock on Bayern. This was all part of some bizarre ad campaign to kick off the season for Borussia Dortmund. Sometimes I can't believe what they get away with in Europe. Could you ever see Eli Manning's wife Abby wearing a GMen jersey and modeling it? Only way that would happen is after Eli dominates that Pats in a Superbowl and she's celebrating.
