How Europe’s most beautiful blonde looks today – Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova.
Supermodel Karolina Kurkova is a mother of many children today.
“Supermodel Karolina Kurkova disappeared from the radar, gave birth to three children, but unexpectedly decided to remind herself that she was named Europe’s sexiest girl in 2007 for a reason,” Nadezhda Strelets noted.
Recall that since 2009, Caroline has been married to film producer Archie Drury, whom she dated for a year before their wedding. The couple has three children: sons Tobin Jack and Noah Lee, and daughter Luna Grace.
As a child, Karolina Kurkova wanted to become an archaeologist and explore the remains of dinosaurs of the Mesozoic era. The girl’s dream did not come true, but she was able to become a famous supermodel, whose photos repeatedly graced the covers of glossy publications.
Childhood and adolescence
Karolina Kurkova was born on February 26, 1984 in the city of Decin, Czech Republic, and is Czech by nationality. Since her childhood, Karolina’s biography was associated with sports, because her father was a famous basketball player. Despite the fact that the girl’s parents divorced early, she continued to attend his games and masterfully handled the ball herself.
At the same time Kurkova was engaged in rhythmic gymnastics. She was thin and tall, because of which she was often mocked by peers. Karolina grew up shy and for a long time did not believe that she was beautiful, until her friend sent the girl’s photo to a Prague modeling agency. This began her career on the catwalk.
The celebrity’s personal life has always been the focus of increased attention from fans and the press. In 2008, Caroline was attributed an affair with Ukrainian athlete Wladimir Klitschko because of a joint photo shoot that appeared in a magazine.
Later, they denied the speculations, and Kurkova presented to the public her lover – producer Archie Drury. During this period, the beauty began to rapidly gain weight, due to which she was repeatedly attacked by the media for not at all model parameters, but soon it turned out that the girl suffers from thyroid problems.
In the middle of 2009, the celebrity announced she was pregnant, after which her lover proposed to her, and they got married shortly before the birth of their first child Tobin. Six years later, the model gave birth to her husband’s second child, son Noah.
However, even after that, the press did not leave the woman without attention. In 2018, photographers filmed her in the arms of George Clooney at a Halloween party, which was the reason for conversations about their close relationship and the jealousy of the actor’s wife. Once again, the rumors were not confirmed.
Caroline took her first steps on the catwalk in 1999, when she took part in the Cividini and Vera Wang shows. The aspiring supermodel was spotted by famous photographers including Steven Meisel who offered her a collaboration.
The global recognition came to the girl after she appeared on the cover of Vogue US at the age of 16, becoming the youngest model to ever get the honor. This opened the doors for the beauty to appear in the shows of such brands as Chanel, Christian Dior and Versace. She was also invited to the Victoria’s Secret show.
At the time, Caroline was noted for her enviable capacity for work and regularly posed for glossy – she starred for Harper’s Bazaar USA with Tyson Ballou and for the Pirelli calendar, in which Heidi Klum and Natalia Vodianova also appeared. She received the status of Victoria’s Secret Angel and had the honor to present the most expensive set of the lingerie brand at the show in 2006.
In the following years, the girl continued to shine on the shows and covers of popular publications such as Elle, Vanity Fair and The Face. She gained the status of a style icon and an idol of millions. In 2012, Kurkova starred for the V Man calendar alongside popular models such as Dautzen Cruz, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio.
As she grew older, the woman decided to devote more time to business projects. Together with LR Health & Beauty, she released a perfume bearing her name. In addition, Kurkova became interested in the production of products for children, including strollers and herbal care products.

– The model tries to adhere to the principles of a healthy lifestyle and watch her diet. This allows her to keep a slim figure and look good in a swimsuit. She weighs about 60 kg with a height of 180 cm.
