Steven Gerrard's move to LA Galaxy is not only good news for soccer fans - Claudine Keane couldn't be happier now she's reunited with his wife, Alex.
The pair became pals during Claudine's brief stint as a Liverpudlian WAG when husband Robbie played for the Merseyside club.
The pregnant model is relieved to have a friend in LA who speaks her language.
"Alex is lovely and it's great to have someone from a part of the world that gets my accent," she said.
Claudine is regularly pictured hanging out with celebs and enjoying the LA life, but the petite model admitted she struggled to get used to the place when her other half was first signed by the club in 2011.
"The first year was obviously difficult. I think Rob came into a ready-made set of friends when he joined the soccer team and I had to make my friends," she said on Today FM.
"Once Robert [the couple's young son] started school, I settled in and I can't complain at all now - I love it here."
