In quarantine and during the pandemic due to COVID-19, famous people and influencers like Dani and Marc ter Stegen have to be more careful of what they do and what they show to the public. Marc ter Stegen said in an interview conducted from home:
“We're all in the same situation and have to keep motivating people to stay home. We can influence others and we have to remember the importance of not going out. My wife, our son, and I are all at home. It is about encouraging each other. There are new challenges and games that appear online every day.”
He also explained about his duties in the house now that he is around family more: “I spend most of my time between the living room and the kitchen, but I also spend a lot of time in the gym.
There are many exercises of physical preparation that I repeat every day, some days I train before breakfast. Cleaning the house is also an exercise. We divide the house chores and we are doing it well,”
The ter Stegen family tries to stay in shape and also eat as healthy as possible: “Normally I cook, we try to consume fresh products and always cook for two days, so it is more practical. For breakfast, I make homemade granola. Cooking is taking up a lot of my time.
My wife and I are making fresh food and looking for new recipes every day. We have made some really nice meals, like a lentil dal we cooked the other day. Whoa! That was amazing. Maybe a bit heavy, but it was really good.
We have fresh fruit and vegetables delivered every Thursday, so that's a day we look forward to -- although washing all the food and putting it away is a lot of work! The quality is amazing, and I like the closeness we have with the suppliers, who recommend what's new and what's in season.
We are not eating much meat and fish at the moment. I wouldn't say we're vegan or vegetarian, but I could count on one hand the times we've eaten meat or fish in the last six months.”
Ter Stegen is quite the family man and a good father; he spends time with little Ben all the time. Before the pandemic he was always away for games or pieces of training and Dani would keep Ben’s company and she could get exhausted but now, Marc can help too.
On 9 May 2020, Marc told about fatherhood in lockdown and how it has been for him, “Spain has been hit particularly hard. We weren't allowed to leave the house for almost eight weeks, with restrictions now finally beginning to be lifted, but you can't look at things from a negative point of view. These circumstances make us value the really important things.
For me, that's meant being able to throw myself into fatherhood. My son Ben is 4 months old. My wife, Dani, would wake up with him in the night most of the time when I had training or a game the next day. She was definitely lacking more sleep than me! But in lockdown, it's been different. We can alternate.
Ben is super easy. It's great. He's growing so fast, and it's so nice to be with him. You can see so many things when you are with him every day. He's very active with his hands, feet, and eyes, following and reacting to everything. It's funny because just as we're keeping an eye on him, it's like he's keeping an eye on us.
When he is sleeping during the day, it becomes a game of quickly checking the emails and messages you need to reply to. I must admit, I can be disorganized when it comes to sending replies. And if Ben's asking for attention, I try to be with him as much as possible.”
