Arsenal are not the only love of Daniel Ek’s life – the Spotify CEO also has a wife called Sofia.
Ek, who threw his hat into the ring to become the Gunners’ new owner last week, married Sofia Levander in August 2016.
The pair tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in Lake Como that was attended by guests including Mark Zuckerberg and Bruno Mars.
Now Sofia Ek, the 38-year-old writer and author was well-known in her own right long before she married fellow Swede Daniel.
Sofia holds a bachelor’s degree in Media & Communications from Stockholm University as well as a diploma in Media and Advertising from Pace University in New York.
Those qualifications enabled her to get a job with the Wall Street Journal, where she travelled all over the world working on the company’s SmartMoney publication.
During her time with the Wall Street Journal, Sofia was responsible for producing investment reports on Greece, the British Virgin Islands, Libya, and Costa Rica.
In 2017, she turned her hand to literature and wrote a memoir entitled The Minefield Girl, about her experiences of a young woman doing business in Libya.

However, Sofia has a lighter side too, and in 2004 she appeared in a Swedish reality show designed to recreate American sitcom, Sex and the City.
The series was called 'Svenska Flickor’, which translates to ‘Swedish Girls’, with Sofia cast as the Swedish version of Sex and the City’s Samantha.
With her acting days now long behind her, Sofia continues to work as a writer and is a proud mother to two young boys, Elissa and Colinne.
If her husband succeeds in his bid to buy Arsenal from Stan Kroenke, the whole family could be popping along to the Emirates some time soon.
