Bombshell Emilia, who was born on October 11, 1992, is a Finnish swimmer who has smashed records in the pool.

As well as swimming, she is also a horse-riding enthusiast, and has taken part in a number of showjumping competitions.

It is no surprise that the blonde beauty has a number of endorsements under her belt, having starred in coconut water ads and for skincare brands.

The talented star has been in the Olympics three times, in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

In her first competition she was just 15 years old and competed in the 100m butterfly ranking 46th.

When did Emilia marry F1 driver Valterri Bottas?

Emilia and racing driver Valtteri Bottas started dating back in 2010.

The pair tied the knot in September 2016 at St. John’s Church, Helsinki.

When did the Finnish couple split up?

Valtteri Bottas announced on social media on November 28, 2019, that the couple would be calling an end to their three-year marriage.

He posted a message on Twitter and Instagram, saying “our ways have split because of the challenges my career and life situation bring”.

Bottas will be away for 22 race weekends in 2020, while the Mercedes F1 team are based in Brackley, Northamptonshire.

The Finn’s Silver Arrows teammate Lewis Hamilton has sympathised with his struggles to keep his relationship going, after revealing that he has trouble trying to keep his dogs alive.

The Brit said: “Children aren’t on my agenda at the moment. Congratulations to Seb, he’s obviously a great father.

“But I am struggling to keep my dogs alive and, managing being an uncle at the moment, that’s hard as it is, so I’ve got my hands tied.

“It’s similar to most sportsmen and women.

“It may be slightly different in that we are travelling as much as we are, and you are just away for crazy amounts of time.

“So that’s probably an additional weight that makes it really, really tough to hold down a good relationship, and if things aren’t quite perfect.”

Hamilton has not been in a relationship since splitting with Nicole Scherzinger in February 2015.
