Born in Malta, Heming was raised in California and London, England, where she was discovered at the age of 16 in 1991 in a supermodel competition on the morning show The Big Breakfast.
After winning the competition, Heming went on to appear in advertisements for Dior, Gap, Garnier and John Frieda, and cover magazines such as Elle, Glamour, Shape, Town and Country and W Magazine. She later walked the runway for fashion designers, including Christian Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Ralph Lauren and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
The model met Bruce Willis at their mutual trainer’s gym in 2007. The couple tied the knot at their home in Turks and Caicos in March 2009, but the wedding was not legally binding. Six days later, they wed for the second time in a civil ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.
Heming gave birth to their daughter Mabel Ray in April 2012 followed by their daughter Evelyn Penn in May 2014. She is also the stepmother of Willis’ three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Demi Moore.
