Behind every successful man, the saying goes, is a woman. And behind Asamoah Gyan, one of the greatest African footballers of all-time, is his stunning wife, Gifty Gyan.
Gifty is the rock that has stood solidly behind Gyan as he plies his trade across several countries in the world.
The two have been married for well over 15 years, and they have three children together.
With Asamoah Gyan mostly outside the country plying his trade, his wife has been responsible for caring for their children and educating them here in Ghana.
And she has certainly done a good job at it so far.
Unlike many other wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of important personalities, Gifty Gyan is highly reserved.
She never appears on radio and television. She never grants interviews to the media.
Even journalists have given up trying to interview her because she is simply not interested. She is not the kind of person who loves public attention.
However, while Gifty is not a fan of traditional media outlets, she is a fan of social media.
She has a private Instagram account where she shares updates on her life with her followers.
She often shares photos of her fashion choices and of getaways with her children.
Sometimes, she uses the platform to wish Gyan well.
On his birthday, she wrote: “Happy birthday to the love of my life! May your special day and everyday be full of happiness and joyful moments! Remember that, your best years are still ahead of you @asamoah_gyan3 GOD BLESS YOU SO MUCH MY LOVE.”
Available information suggests that Gyan and Gifty have had a successful marriage so far.
The only time they appeared to have had trouble was when Gyan slept with the then-university student, Sarah Kwablah, and sparked a scandal.
The star footballer has said in an interview that he sought forgiveness from his wife after that episode, and she forgave him.
So? Case closed.
