Many of us know Joanna Krupa as the beautiful Polish model and actress who was featured on the reality television shows Dancing with the Stars and The Real Housewives of Miami. Since then, she’s made a name for herself and had a successful career, eventually landing as host and head judge of Top Model, a Polish spin-off of America’s Next Top Model.
On August 4, 2018, Krupa married her new husband, Douglas Nunes. Though she likes to keep her personal life private, as most celebrities do, there are a few things you may not know about Nunes, as well as his relationship with Krupa. Now, the couple has welcomed their first child to the world.
1. He’s a media mogul.
Nunes is the president and partner of property development for the company 451 Media Group. There’s nothing more attractive than a successful businessman, right?
2. He's her second husband.
Krupa was married to her first husband Romain Zago from 2013 to 2017, and their divorce was finalized in August 2017. According to Krupa, Zago asked for a divorce in December 2016 and she was caught off-guard.
“I spent many nights crying. It was the worst Christmas imaginable. I felt like my life had been turned upside down and I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I cried. I couldn’t eat. I probably lost about 7 pounds ... I was heartbroken. He had wanted a family, but I was always traveling and made work my priority. As time has gone on, I’ve realized we were both unhappy.”
Despite the divorce, the two remain on good terms. Let’s hope her marriage to Nunes will stick!
3. They were only engaged for five months.
Nunes proposed in March 2018, just eight months after Krupa finalized her divorce from Zago. Talk about a fast walk down the aisle.
4. Her engagement ring is huge.
That’s really all a girl could ever ask for: a gorgeous cushion cut diamond ring. We can only wonder what her wedding ring looks like.
5. Their wedding was small and simple.
Back in June, Krupa revealed to Us Weekly that she wanted to keep things simple. “No big crazy wedding like I did the first time,” she said.
And she kept her word because her wedding to Nunes was much more low key. “It was a very private and small family gathering. Wish I could have shared it with all the people that I love,” Krupa wrote on Instagram.
6. They have three dogs.
She’s an animal advocate, so it’s no wonder they have at least a few pets in their family. Krupa has been one of PETA’s most successful models, appearing in many of their ads and created her own non-profit called Angels for Animal Rescue, which she started after seeing a video about the fur trade.
7. They may be trying for kids.
In 2014, Krupa revealed that she froze her eggs since she and Zago weren’t quite ready for children yet. But upon her marriage to Nunes, the topic of conversation will obviously come up.
In an interview with Life & Style, Krupa said, “Thank goodness I froze my eggs. I would honestly be freaking out right now if I didn’t. You never know what life will bring. What if that moment comes when you can’t have kids? You don’t want to wake up one day and be like, ‘My God, what was I thinking?’ I decided a few years ago to freeze them so I would be safe.”
She also hinted that she and Nunes want to have children in the near future: “God willing we will start planning this year.”
8. And baby makes three!
On Saturday, November 2, 2019, Joanna Krupa and Douglas Nunes welcomed their first child, a baby girl, to the world. Krupa took to Instagram on Sunday to share the news, writing: “One of the most amazing emotional and hardest days of my life,” Krupa shared Sunday on Instagram. “Little baby girl Asha-Leigh Presley Nunes born on 11/02/19 at 550pm. All I can say is women are true warriors.” Little Asha-Leigh weighed in at 6 lbs., 15 oz., and 20 inches long, according to People.
