Partner: Jeff Gordon (2006 - present) 1 child
Ingrid Vandebosch (born November 8, 1969 in Zichen-Zussen-Bolder, Limburg, Belgium) is a supermodel and occasional actress. Her modeling contract requires her birthdate to be kept secret, but she won the Elite Look of the Year Award in 1990, which would mean she was born circa 1972. According to her agency, she stands 5'7" (170 cm) tall and weighs 121 pounds (55 kg).
The Belgian model began her career in 1996 with a small agency in the Netherlands and was discovered by Parisian agents three years later. She moved to Paris where she lived for six years working on projects for Christian Dior and Amway and appeared in magazines such as ELLE, Marie Claire, Vogue and Glamour. Seeking new opportunities in modeling, as well as film and theatre, she later moved to New York City where she became the "face" of Artistry, a cosmetics line owned by Quixtar, a sister company of Amway. Vandebosch was recently featured in Stuff magazine where she talks about her sexy line of lingerie and what she considers sexy.
Vandebosch married NASCAR Nextel Cup driver Jeff Gordon in a private ceremony in Mexico on 2006-11-07 . The couple were introduced by a mutual friend in 2002, but didn't start dating until about two and a half years later. Gordon and Vandebosch announced their engagement on June 24, 2006, after keeping it secret for the previous 30 days.
Gordon announced December 13 that his new bride, Ingrid Vandebosch, is pregnant with the couple's child, which the couple announced that it was a girl, and is due on June 30.
"Christmas came early for us this year", Gordon said in a statement. "This is a very special gift for us – one that we’re both looking forward to. Ingrid and I can’t wait to be parents.
"We’ve known for a little while, but we couldn’t wait any longer to share the good news with our friends and fans."
On June 20, 2007 Vandebosch gave birth to a girl named Ella Sofia Gordon in New York City. The baby weighed 7 pounds 1 ounce.
