Melissa Satta in Italy-themed body paint

The relationship didn't last (the couple split in 2011), but Melissa has stayed in the WAG game, getting engaged to AC Milan and Ghanaian national team forward Kevin Prince-Boateng in 2012 (lest you forget her explanation for his nagging injuries), and giving birth to their son Maddox in April. She hasn't gone so far as to lend her torso to the Black Stars, but the couple seems smitten as ever.
