The Brazilian-born model was by the former Leicester man’s side for a year-and-a-half before they split up so she could pursue her modelling career.
Opening up about her romance with the England international, Carol told Jam Press: “It was such an intense relationship of one-and-a-half years.
“I was together in many important moments of his career.
“I would always have a huge affection for him.
“It was a great time in my life but it was not what I liked to do, so I decided to go out and pursue my modelling profession.”
The duo appear inseparable as they pose for the camera, enjoying an intimate pub dinner in one shot.
