Cheryl Rae Tiegs (born September 25, 1947 in Breckenridge, Minnesota) is sometimes considered to be the first modern American supermodel. Her popularity signaled the rise of tall models, as she stands 5'10" to 5'11" in height.
Tiegs was reputedly never comfortable in the spotlight, and did not welcome the scrutiny that came with it. She has been married and divorced four times, to Stan Dragoti (1970–1979), Peter Hill Beard (1981–1983), Tony Peck (1990–1995), and Rod Stryker (1998–2001). She has three sons, one by Peck and two by Stryker. Tiegs has admitted that during the height of her fame, she would jump from one relationship to the next, never secure with the man she was with.
Now in her late fifties she has resumed modeling, is appearing in the HGTV series "Living with Ed", and has entered the world of business with an accessory and wig line for Revlon.
Cheryl Tiegs became the mother of twin boys Jaden Joseph and Theo Reid in 2000, at the age of 52, with the services of a surrogate mother. Rod Stryker, the father of the twins and her ex-husband, obtained exclusive custody of the twins during their divorce.
