As Denmark play England in the semifinal today, one major part of their team would be Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The defensive midfielder has played a crucial part in Denmark’s surprise run to the semifinals and would be looking to do his best to win the two more matches necessary to win the tournament.
Hojbjerg has been one of the players of the season for Tottenham Hotspur, putting in rock-solid displays at defensive midfield all season. As he looks to win an international trophy with Denmark, we take a look at the Denmark #23’s family, including his girlfriend-turned-wife Josephine and their two children: Rosa Hojbjerg and Theo Hojbjerg.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s family: Josephine, Rosa and Theo
Hojbjerg is married to Josephine Siw Nielsen, whom he started dating in 2015. After four years of dating, Hojbjerg and Josephine got married in a private ceremony in 2019, where they only invited their closest friends and family.
Josephine Siw is 26 years old, born on June 29th 1995. As with many other celebrity spouses, Josephine prefers to keep her life private and away from the glare of the media. In 2017, two years before their marriage, Josephine gave birth to their first child. They named the girl Rosa Hojbjerg. Three years later, in 2020, they welcomed another addition to the family in the form of Theo Hojbjerg, their second child and first boy.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Josephine have been a happy couple, and regularly post pictures on their social media handles. Josephine also hails from Denmark and is well educated with a degree in European Business. The last news of her profession was that she was working as an Executive Assistant at MM Properties ApS back in 2016, a job that she quit due to her pregnancy.
