There’s no doubt about it, things have changed dramatically over the past several months. These are strange days indeed. However, some things blessedly remain the same. You may need to plan a trip to the grocery store with the precision and timing of a Navy SEAL, but in Hollywood, there are still old dudes proposing to blond “20-something” personal trainers with tacky pink diamond rings. Swedish meatball Dolph Lundgren is the latest pepaw to give his adult daughters a new mommy who looks like she could be one of their USC sorority sisters.
According to The Daily Mail, Dolph, who is 62, recently got engaged to “blonde bombshell personal trainer” Emma Krokdal, 24. Dolph and Emma’s romance was first made public back in January “when a Page Six insider revealed the romance was months old.” Most recently, they were spotted in West Hollywood having lunch after returning from Sweden where Dolph popped the question. Both he and Emma posted the news on Instagram with Emma sharing a close up of her very pink ring and Dolph captioning the post “Something very special happened here in Sweden. D❤️E.”
Dolph dated Grace Jones for four years, was a regular at Studio 54 and Andy Warhol’s Factory, and has a master’s degree in chemical engineering, but I’m sure he and Emma have plenty of things to talk about besides discussing which favorite smoothie bowl toppings they have in common. DM reports that “Dolph was previously married to jewelry designer Anette Qviberg from 1994 to 2011 and they share two daughters, Ida, 24, and Greta, 18.” and I can’t decide which of Dolph’s daughters Emma resembles most.
She’s kind of a mashup of both. Now all I’m seeing is a roiling stew of noses and mouths with a pinch of Florence Pugh and a dash Sofia Richie. Hopefully, Dolph is better at telling them all apart than I am. Otherwise, all those orgies he and Grace were having back in the day are going to start looking positively wholesome.
