How did she meet her future husband?
Georgia, in the ABC documentary The Australian Story: The Age of Ange, shared how she met Ange. According to her, she met Ange at work.
He was the senior coach of South Melbourne Soccer Club, and she was working as a marketing manager of the club.
She initially wondered why everyone around the club was so fascinated by and respected him, as he is not someone she would describe as charismatic or charmer.
She didn’t get it at the time, she expressed. It was only afterward she got to understand him as a person.
“You would see him on the ground, and he would strike up conversations with kids because he saw how much they were enjoying what he enjoyed and how much he loved the game, she said.
Ange was a very successful coach as he led the South Melbourne Soccer Club to consecutive National Soccer League titles before he was appointed the head coach of the Australian youth team.
Ange admitted to not coaching well in 2005 because he started worrying about the pressure that was intensifying over the fact that they were not getting good results at youth level for a few years.
During his difficult time when he was facing backlash, Georgia was by his side.
Ange was previously married, but his marriage had ended years ago. He found the kind of positivity he needed in Georgia.
He was also involved in an on-air argument with football pundit Craig Foster on the World Game that became the headline at the time.
They got married a month later. He got sacked from his position three months after their marriage.
It was a hard time for them as Ange was not getting a job, due to which they didn’t have a place to reside and ended up staying at Georgia’s mother’s house for six to eight months.
All those times, Georgia stood by his side as a rock. Ange credited Georgia for who he is today.
He said he didn’t know where he would have ended up without Georgia by his side through that tough time.
She is the mother of two
Georgia shares two sons, Max and Alexi, with her husband. But her husband is the father of three. He shares a son named James with his ex-wife.
Georgia, in the documentary, said that when she was pregnant with Max, he came three weeks early, and her husband was supposed to fly that day to London.
She said to him that he couldn’t leave her to have Max on her own. He managed to change the flight and was by her side when she was giving birth to Max.
During an interview with The Sun, Ange shared that he fears their sons are not going to sound like Aussies at all.
He said their boys went to international school while in Japan, where all the teachers had an American background so they had an American accent, which annoyed him.
After moving to Scotland, they picked up Glaswegian as well, so they are not going to sound like his kid.
They are not going to sound like Aussies at all, he said at the time.
After being appointed as the Tottenham Hotspur manager, the family now resides in the U.K.
Ange now fears that his kids might develop London twang so he recently took his kids to watch a smash hit show from down under so they will have an Australian accent.
In an interview, he said that it was a real battle as he spoke American twang and then Glaswegian twang.
God knows what they will sound like after living in London, he said.
Her husband pays attention to her wisdom on spending wisely
Her husband, in an interview, said he pays attention to her wisdom on spending wisely when it comes to looking for the players.
According to him, Georgia already knows what she wants. She goes in, she picks it, and she buys it. Likewise, when it comes to buying players, he does the same.
“When I go looking for the players, I am the same as her. I have got a clear idea, he said in an interview.
Her net worth is currently under review. As of now, we have the net worth of her husband. His net worth is estimated to be around $5 million.
- Georgia was born in 1968. She is 55 years old.
