Dennis Schroder’s wife is his high-school sweetheart Ellen Schroder, formerly known as Ellen Ziolo. She was born in the same German town as Dennis Braunschweig. The two met in high school and despite Ellen being a 2-year senior she fell in love with Dennis fast.

Ellen was born on December 10, 1991, and as of 2023, she is 31 years old. During elementary school, Ellen was part of the school’s volleyball team. She didn’t pursue a sports career though. Instead after graduating and working for a few years in short-term jobs as a bartender and a waitress, Ellen launched her modeling career.

Later on, once her relationship with Dennis became serious Ellen also became a famous social media influencer. She doesn’t use any other social media but Instagram. Her Instagram account is called @_ellen_schroeder and she has 66.6K followers on her account. As an influencer, she has partnered with such companies like Chanel, Versace and Dolce&Gabanna.

Ellen stands at 5 ft 9 in (1.79m), weighs 127 lb (58kg) and wears shoe size 5 (UK size). As of the beginning of 2023, her net worth is estimated to be around $800,000, all earning from her modeling and social influencing careers.

When and where did Dennis and Ellen marry?

Not much is known about Dennis and Ellen met in the first place. Still, some reports suggest that during their high school years, they bumped into each other during a house party organised by a mutual friend. As they say, the rest is history.

The couple got married on July 20, 2019, in a private ceremony in their hometown Braunschweig, Germany. Initially, the ceremony was supposed to be a small event with only 50 guests, closest friends and relatives. However, since Dennis Schroder has a large branch of his family still living in Gambia the guest list ended up being 350 people. The ceremony took place in the lavish Volkswagen Hall in Lower Saxony.

Dennis Schroder wore a grey suit with a golden bow tie and sunglasses on his wedding day. Ellen went for a bold wedding gown. The fabric robe had a neckline that reached the belly button and had a hip slit design.

How many kids do Dennis and Ellen Schroder have?

Dennis and Ellen Schroder are the happy parents of 3 healthy kids. The first was born on February 19, 2019, and the couple named him after his father Dennis Mallick Junior. He is 4-years-old now.

In August of the following year (2020), they welcomed their second child. A baby daughter (3-years-old now) named Imalia Aaliyah.

Their third child, another son, was born only in December 2022. He is named Awa and shortly will be celebrating his first birthday.

The couple currently live in LA,

but they are about to relocate to Toronto, Canada where Dennis will be playing next season.
