Dolph Lundgren, the action star at 65, and his love, Emma Krokdal, 27, are officially Mr. and Mrs. The couple said their “I dos” in an intimate ceremony at their villa in the picturesque Mykonos, Greece, on July 13th. Despite the challenges brought by Covid and a tough journey of medical treatments, they were determined to make their love official in the land of the Gods, surrounded by close family and friends.
The day before the wedding, Dolph teased the imminent nuptials with an adorable photo of him and Emma in a pool in Greece, captioning it with a heartfelt “Tomorrow is the day. Mykonos.”
Their love story blossomed when they met at a West Hollywood Equinox gym, initially becoming friends before love took center stage. Emma, a Swedish personal trainer, and the Rocky legend found comfort and companionship during the pandemic and eventually took the big leap when Dolph proposed during a memorable trip to Sweden.
Reflecting on their journey, Dolph expressed his surprise at Emma’s fondness for him: “I didn’t know why she liked me at all, but I suppose she saw something there. She didn’t know about my acting career, she didn’t know anything about me.” He lovingly described her as mature beyond her years, praising her resilience in overcoming life’s challenges.
His optimistic about his recovery
Earlier this year, the actor bravely shared his battle with cancer over the last eight years. Dolph faced numerous surgeries and extensive treatments to combat tumors, but he remains optimistic about his recovery, thanks to the encouraging progress shown by his current medicine. At the time, he was given only 2-3 years of life.
Their wedding marks a beautiful chapter in their lives, filled with hope, love, and triumph over adversity. Dolph Lundgren and Emma Krokdal’s journey together promises to be a remarkable one, and fans can’t wait to see what the future holds for this dynamic duo.
