Italian soccer presenter Diletta Leotta spent her Easter Sunday by the pool and with loved ones.
Taking to Instagram over the weekend, the 31-year-old DAZN star shared photos of herself laying poolside with her boyfriend Loris Karius — a goalkeeper for the Premier League club Newcastle United — and videos of her participating in Easter activities with loved ones.
Back in March, Leotta — who works the sidelines for DAZN’s coverage of Serie A and the Champions League — announced that she and Karius were expecting their first baby together.
In addition to Newcastle, Karius, 29 years old, previously played for professional clubs such as Mainz and Union Berlin in Germany, Liverpool in England, and Besiktas in Turkey. Karius is best known for experiencing both a career-high and a career-low in the same game.
During the 2017-18 season with Liverpool, Karius was installed as the starting goalkeeper about halfway through the season and was a member of the first team that made a run to the Champions League final in Kyiv against Real Madrid. Unfortunately for Karius, the game not only ended in a 3-1 win for Madrid but two of the goals that Liverpool conceded were a direct result of his errors.
That next season, Liverpool signed Brazilian keeper Alisson Becker to a then-world record fee and began loaning Karius out to teams such as Mainz, Union Berlin, and Besiktas. Back in 2022, though, Karius found a more permanent home with Newcastle and has been their third-string keeper since.
Despite being the team’s third-string, he actually started in the team’s appearance in the League Cup final against Manchester United back in February. While Newcastle ultimately lost to United by a score of 2-0, Karius played well in the match as he made eight saves in the loss.
