Ozil and Gulse got married on June 7 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.
The 30-year-old has since reported to Arsenal for pre-season training sporting his new dyed blonde hair.
Ozil has been in impressive form for the Gunners on their US Tour which has seen them beat Colorado, Bayern Munich and Fiorentina before eventually losing to Real Madrid on penalties.
The Gunners take on Lyon next in the Emirates Cup before traveling to France to take on Angers and finally Barcelona at the Nou Camp on 4 August.
