She was a shop assistant who earned just £10-an-hour working in the Adidas store in Manchester City Centre, and he was the £120,000-a-week Manchester United star.
Now, Camille Sold is preparing to marry midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin after he jetted her off to the French Riviera and got down on one knee following a whirlwind romance.
Miss Sold, who begun dating the footballer last year, confirmed the happy news on her Instagram account on Thursday morning by posting a picture of the couple toasting their engagement.
She captioned the post: 'An amazing evening, in an incredible place. Just us and the sound of the waves... Can't describe my feeling... No words, it was just unreal... I feel like the luckiest woman #love #amour #reallove #happiness #engagmentring #29mars2016 #infinity #8.'
The 26-year-old France midfielder suffered disappointment when he was left out Didier Deschamps' squad for the recent friendlies against Holland and Russia.
But the former Southampton star put the snub behind him and made the most of the international break, popping the question to the delight of his partner.
The pair have clearly been enjoying themselves while on their break with Miss Sold posting a string of pictures showing off the picturesque views they were treated to in France.
Two days ago, she posted a picture of two luscious cocktails with a stunning backdrop of a white, sandy beach and bright azure sea in the luxurious location.
Earlier that day there was a picture of a stunning white terrace looking out over the sea, with perfect blue sky and picturesque cliffs in the distance.
But Miss Sold is clearly not one to live the life of luxury without going out and earning her own crust. Last year, it was revealed she was making £10-an-hour as a shop girl at an Adidas store in Manchester city centre.
The management and marketing student from Strasbourg was pictured at work in the store wearing a Manchester United shirt with his squad No 28 and her first name.
She earned £15,000-a-year working on the tills and the shop floor of the store, whereas the midfielder pockets more than £5million-a-year.
At the time, the couple were living in the Lowry Hotel in nearby Salford and Schneiderlin was regularly seen picking his girlfriend up from work before they headed back to their temporary home.
It's not yet known if she still works at the store, or if she will continue to work when she is wed to the super-rich footballer, but she looked as though she might have other career hopes a few years ago.
Miss Sold is no stranger to the spotlight having been a contestant on reality TV series KohLanta, France's version of Survivor, in 2012, before being eliminated.
During the show, when she was just 18, she won her share of admirers as she was seen on TV screens rarely wearing more than a bikini.
During an interview in 2012, she told Oops magazine: 'I get plenty of fiery messages and declarations of love on social networks. And even at home! I received letters, bouquets of flowers.'
It is not known exactly where the couple met, but they are both from the Alsace region in France and got together at the beginning of 2015. In May last year, he announced that they were official with a picture of them together on his Instagram account.
He wrote: 'Family dinner with the woman who share my life for 5 month now ! Je t'aime,' with the picture of them cuddling.
It is believed that she later flew out to England to join her partner, shortly before he made the move from Southampton to Manchester, but took the job in a shop while she got to know the city.
