Hazard and his wife Natasha Van Honacker Hazard tied the knot in 2012 after two children and 7 years of dating.

Natasha stayed and finished high school after Eden left to play for professionally for Lille, but she later joined him when they both turned 18 and moved into a flat together.
Their second son was born in February of 2013.
