#18 Who is Emily Ratajkowski’s Husband?

Emily married filmmaker Sebastian Bear-McClard on 23 Feb 2018 at City Hall in New York. She was wearing a $199 mustard coloured suit from Zara.

“I never loved the idea of white for a wedding because I’m not a pure woman. I’m a woman with a lot of character and experience and life. I also just love the idea of a suit, especially at City Hall, because it’s like you’re taking care of business. I really wanted to wear red actually, initially . . . and then I just love mustard yellow and I found that suit and just knew that it was the one.” She told Vanity Fair.

Emily’s breasts are real.

“I was a 12 year old [with D-cup breasts] but people looked at me as a 21 year old,” she explained to Harpers Bazaar Arabia in January. “It was really difficult for me to understand and to come to terms with… It’s hard for a 12-year-old girl, who is basically feeling like ‘Why don’t you just leave me alone’, because I don’t see men having to justify what they wear or how they express themselves.”

Emily is not one for diets and workouts. “You should see my refrigerator. It’s insane. I have a relationship with Postmates. It’s basically Indian food and Thai food, preferably when I’m horizontal in bed.”

“I go on long walks and hikes with my girlfriends. That’s about it.”
