2. She’s Been Dating Ozil for Less Than a Year
According to a translation a Yahoo! translation of an interview with the German sports newspaper Bild, Capristo had this to say about her relationship to Ozil:
We met last year. We’ve been together since the beginning of this year. We took our time deliberately. It has to feel right. I need someone who is very honest. I was raised the traditional way and I take relationships very seriously. That’s not a simple matter in our generation.
She moved to London after he went to Arsenal last summer and has been constantly tweeting her support for her boyfriend. Their not-so-long relationship didn’t keep Capristo from looking for apartments in the London area, and fans of the two lovebirds hope they’re gonna settle down together soon. When interviewed by a German newspaper, Capristo said their relationship could be compared to Bonnie and Clyde.
We are in a partnership. Partners in crime, so to speak. We share the same sense of humor. We take our relationship very seriously, but not so much ourselves as people.
Capristo was ecstatic when she found out about her beau’s move to London. In fact, it’s her favorite city and she thought Ozil was kidding when he said he was transferring.
Her looks and music background are two reasons the couple has been dubbed the ‘German Posh and Becks.’ Look, out Victoria.

I’m lucky, to have such a wonderful person by my side. We are simply well-matched and understand one another. She is a help to me and we support each other.
5. Ozil May Propose to Her
In an interview with the UK Independent, the star player was asked if he’d marry Capristo if Germany wins the World Cup, and he didn’t give a straight answer.
First, I will focus on the World Cup. Then I’ll go on a beautiful holiday. What happens after that, I do not know yet.
In November of last year, the two were seen strolling the streets of London and stopping every now and then so Ozil could snap pics of his hot girlfriend.
It seems like a diamond may be in her future.
