Her marriage imploded in spectacular fashion when she discovered in 2009 that husband Tiger Woods was cheating on her with an array of mistresses but that hasn’t put Elin Nordegren off relationships.
The 34-year-old blonde beauty – who has daughter Sam, six and five-year-old son Charlie with Woods – has been happily dating her Florida neighbour coal magnate Chris Clein, 55,for over a year and says she would love to have more children.
And five years on from the public humiliation of discovering Woods was having flings with more than a dozen women during their marriage, Elin tells People she has managed to forgive him and even forge a friendship with his latest love Lindsey Vonn.

She said: ‘I think I would like [more children]. But I have a boy and a girl and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
‘I feel like I’m in a great spot, great if it happens and great if it doesn’t.’
Elin’s new boyfriend already has four children and is worth a reported $1.5 billion.
