Back in 2009, Elin Nordegren’s name was plastered on every tabloid, newspaper, website, you name it. It all started with Tiger Woods’s infamous car accident, which later unraveled the startling truth about her husband of six years. Not only did Tiger cheat on Elin, but he cheated on her with at least a dozen women. Then in 2010, Elin and Tiger announced their divorce, and we haven’t heard from Elin since...
That is until now! The 34-year-old Swedish-born former model spoke for the first time about Tiger in four years with People after her graduation from Rollins College — she earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology with top honors. And guess what? It turns out Elin and Tiger are on good terms these days!
In fact, they both live in southern Florida, just about a 25-minute drive from each other. Why? It’s all for the sake of their two children, daughter Sam, 6, and son, Charlie, 5. "I have moved on and I am in a good place," Elin admits. "My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good – we really are – and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father." Now, that’s some great co-parenting!
Despite going through a rocky period back in 2009, Elin never once doubted she and Tiger could reach a point where they would make things work. "In the beginning, you tamp down the animosity for the kids' sake," she says.
"I'm not going to deny that I went through the wringer. But I don't think I doubted we'd end up here. That was always my dream, that the kids can have two loving parents that show respect for each other. And I feel that's what they have."
Elin also admitted that during her split with Tiger, she went through some intense therapy, and continues to visit a therapist every week so as to keep “working on myself.” It seems like Elin is doing a great job with not only raising her kids with Tiger, but with herself as well. The last time we heard of this blonde beauty, she was reportedly dating her billionaire neighbor, 53-year-old Chris Cline. We can’t wait to see what Elin does next!
