Elin Nordegren, a former model, was born in Stockholm, Sweden on January 1, 1980.
After moving to the United States she was eventually introduced to professional golfer, Tiger Woods. After a four year courtship, the couple married in 2004. Together they have two children: a daughter named Sam, born in 2007, and a son, Charlie, born in 2009.
During Thanksgiving weekend in 2009, Woods crashed his car into a tree after Nordegren learned of his mistress, Rachel Uchitel, and allegedly woke him from an Ambien-induced slumber and attacked him with a golf club.
In the following weeks, Woods admitted to his marital infidelities. Fourteen alleged women have come forward, claiming to have an affair with the golfer.
