Would you believe it has almost been ten years since the world was rocked by the scandal-storm of Tiger Woods’ multiple affairs? And when we say multiple, we are talking about almost 120 women whom the famous golf champ was linked to during his marriage with Elin Nordegren. Naturally, the shocking news led to their divorce, which was finalized in 2010.
Elin dropped out of the public view entirely after the scandal finally wrapped up, and even the nosiest gossip mags seemed unable to find any scoops on her. So, you’re not alone if you’ve wondered from time to time where the former Mrs. Woods is now and how she’s been faring since the divorce. Lucky for you, we are here to satisfy your curiosity. Read on to find out what Elin Nordegren did with herself after the dust of her messy divorce settled, and of course, you’ll get to see what she looks like today.
Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren, born on January 1, 1980, hails from Stockholm, Sweden. Her mother, Barbro Holmberg, is a politician; while her father, Thomas Nordegren, is a radio journalist. Both of them are influential public figures in their country. Elin has two siblings: an older brother named Axel and a twin sister named Josefin.
Though their parents were minor celebrities, Elin and Josefin weren’t spoiled. Instead, they learned to earn their keep. The twins worked odd jobs, such as being supermarket cashiers, in order to pay for their education. This hard work paid off for Elin in many ways, eventually giving her the discipline needed to graduate with honors from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, four years after her divorce from Tiger. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
