Victoria’s Secret Karolina Kurkova has Facebook to thank for her husband, Archie Drury. The Czech supermodel met the ex-Marine face to face, but no spark then.
It took Karolina Kurkova rows and rows of conversation on Facebook with her now-husband Archie Drury to realize that they actually match. This, because when the met in person, before becoming Facebook friends, she didn’t really pay that much attention to him. And she didn’t stay on his mind, either.
Kurkova talked about how she met her husband in an interview for Hamptons magazine.
The supermodel explains that she and Drury met in 2008, in New York City, one evening. She was out with friends to grab dinner. He, the same. “There was nothing between us when we met”, she says. “We really got to actually connect through Facebook.” And it was her that tracked him down. “I found his friend and then saw his name”. He did not remember her, nor did he know who she was. I think if he knew, it wouldn’t have worked out.
Kurkova credits Facebook for her relationship. Old-school Facebook, actually. “It was nine years ago. It was a different time for Facebook. So we really got to know each other through writing, we got together, and the rest is history.”
By history she means that they tied the knot one year later and the same year, 2009, she gave birth to their first child, son Tobin.
In 2015, the couple welcomed their second son, Noah.
As for parenting, the 33-year-old blonde admits to nonconformity. “We take Tobin a lot of places maybe parents wouldn’t take their kids”, she says – such as out to dinner, or events, or spiritual places. “We took him to India and took him to the slums. We are exposing him to different religions”, Kurkova detailed, explaining that this helps develop his sense of comfort in the world and his curiosity and learning abilities.
