With the announcement today the Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods divorce is final, Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods’ now ex-wife has suddenly become a hot commodity. One of the world’s most eligible bachelorettes, after her divorce from Woods, Nordegren is beautiful, smart, sexy and worth millions. The divorce was finalized in Panama City, Florida,and reputedly gave Nordegren $100 million, making her as free as a bird and rich. What’s going to be even more attractive to the myriad of guys soon sniffing around is, unlike Tiger Woods whose reputation is in shatters, Nordegren came out of this divorce smelling like a rose. After all, she’s not the one who did anything wrong. On the contrary, she did everything right. But, for all the talk of her being the world’s newest most eligible bachelorette, who is Elin Nordegren really?
Elin Nordegren was born in 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden to a politician mother and a journalist father. Nordegren grew up in a normal Swedish family, doing some modeling during her teen years along with regular jobs like working in a supermarket. She met Woods when she came to the US as a nanny for the family of Swedish golfer, Jesper Parnevik. The couple married in 2004 and Nordegren gave birth to their first child, a daughter, in 2007. A second child followed, a boy, in 2009.
Throughout her almost six year marriage to Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren stayed somewhat in the background. Photographed with Woods at sporting events, concerts and other public affairs, she didn’t speak much to the press and seemed content to be a wife and a mother. That all changed though when Woods’ affairs with other women hit the media.
The first hint of a problem was a late-night car crash Tiger Woods had that later, it turned out, was possibly caused by him fleeing from his wife brandishing a golf club, after she discovered his affair (“Way to go, Elin”, is a good response here).
News reports soon followed of Wood’s affairs with several other women, with Woods soon losing many of his advertising endorsements as advertisers didn’t want to be associated with a philanderer. Rumors said Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods were trying to reconcile but that turned out to be a bit of a disaster.
Now divorced, Elin Nordegren has it all and Tiger Woods looks like a bit of a prat. Woods is now the sleazy guy and one who’s not doing particularly well in his famous golf career since news of his affairs first broke.
Nordegren on the other hand is the golden girl. Tall, thin, blonde and gorgeous, she’s apparently smart, kind, a wonderful spouse and loves kids. She’s also currently enrolled in a local college to study psychology, something she wanted to do as far back as age 20,when her dream was to be a child psychologist. Oh, and she has millions of dollars. Talk about the world’s most eligible bachelorette. They don’t come much better than this.
