The 27-year-old model tells Us Weekly that fate stepped in when she was introduced to her current boyfriend, Orlando Magic power forward Ryan Anderson, 23, while doing a photo shoot in The Bahamas in February.

"We ended up hanging out every minute I was able to when I wasn't working," Allemand says.

As luck would have it, Allemand was soon offered a job in The Bahamas that required her to relocate to the Sunshine State in order to "be flown to the Bahamas every weekend."

Allemand, who recently designed a line a bathing suits for The G Stop, says she and California-born Anderson have been going strong ever since.
