Ingrid Vandebosch is the wife of NASCARNextel Cup driver Jeff Gordon. The couple met at a party in New York City in 2003 during the filming of the movie "Taxi," in which Ingrid portrays a bank robber and Jeff makes an uncredited cameo appearance.
The pair dated for about two and a half years before Jeff proposed with a 5.6 carat brilliant-cut Tiffany ring. Their engagement was announced in California's wine country on June 23, the eve of the road course race at Infineon Raceway where Jeff is the most winningest current driver and won again on June 24. The couple was married in a private ceremony at the Amphitheatre of Hacienda de San Antonio in Comala, Colima, Mexico on Nov. 7.
Quoting this... Ingrid: "I am the luckiest girl in the world to marry this amazing man."
The Belgian model began her career at 16 with a small agency in Holland and was discovered by Parisian agents three years later. She moved to Paris where she lived for six years working on projects for Christian Dior, Amway, Elle, Marie Claire, Vogue, and Glamour. Seeking new opportunities in modeling, as well as film and theatre, she later moved to New York City where she secured a beauty contract with Artistry Cosmetics.
