Sylvie Meis about Rafael's partner: She raves about her ex-husband's girlfriend

In a recent interview with the magazine "Gala", the moderator and entrepreneur Sylvie Meis (44) raves about the girlfriend of her ex-husband Rafael von der Vaart (40): "Estavana is a super great woman. Beautiful. Talented, with a great Career." She emphasizes: "We are really good friends."

The ex-soccer player has been in a relationship with Dutch handball player Estavana Polman (30) since 2016, and the couple has their daughter Jesslynn (5). He was previously married to Sylvie Meis from 2005 to 2013, and their son Damian (16) emerged from this marriage. The words of the native of Hamburg are remarkable, because the broken family's relationship was not always so good. The separation led to a war of roses - especially when van der Vaart met Meis' former best friend Sabia Boulahrouz (45).

But things have calmed down with Estavana Polman alongside Rafael van der Vaart. So Sylvie Meis can say ten years after the divorce: "It's a huge win that we've become a family again in recent years. We can spend Christmas together again or celebrate Damian's birthday together."

Damian has been living with his father in Denmark for the past three years to further his football career there. Sylvie Meis drives from Hamburg to Esbjerg every month to visit him. Then she rents a hotel next to her ex-husband's apartment and spends a lot of time with the family. "We like to play a game with Rafael and Estavana in the evening," says Sylvie Meis about the activities with her son. On her Instagram page she occasionally gives insights into the new harmony. At Christmas 2022, for example, she posted a picture with Estavana Polman and wrote: "So thankful for a Christmas together".

Even when her second marriage to artist Niclas Castello (44) recently broke up, she could count on Rafael van der Vaart and Estavana Polman: "They were the first to contact me when they found out about my separation from Niclas . They called him too. It's a family feeling. The big winner is Damian." She is "eternally grateful for that. Estavana in particular – she made it possible."

She herself is now enjoying her single life again. After two and a half years of marriage, she announced her separation from Niclas Castello in February. "I also feel spring in me, but I don't have the head for more right now. I'm happy. Because I'm enough for myself."
