Sophie Anderton is married! 90s It-Girl ties the knot with Count Kaz Balinski-Jundzill in Ireland after having to postpone their wedding three times
Sophie Anderton has finally married her beau Count Kaz Balinski-Jundzill after having to postpone their wedding three times during the pandemic.
The former It-Girl and model, 44, who first shot to fame as the face of Gossard bras in the 1990s, tied the knot with the Polish aristocrat, 52, in Ireland.
Speaking with The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden last Friday, Sophie said: ‘Yesterday, I married my best friend, soulmate and lifetime partner in crime.

‘I cannot believe after so many obstacles and date changes, I am officially Mrs Kaz Balinksi.’
Kaz, who works in the oil business, owns a 1,500-acre estate, Glendalough House, in County Wicklow.
Sophie and Kaz had to postpone their nuptials twice last year due to Covid — and then again at the end of July when one of Kaz’s four children fell ill.
One of Kaz’s children is actress Ella Balinska, 24, who he shares with TV chef ex-wife, Lorraine Pascale. Ella starred in the 2019 Charlie’s Angels film.

The happy newlyweds have been together for more than four years, with Sophie often gushing about their relationship.
In 2018 she shared her excitement about the future and told blog Beautiful Thinking: ‘I’m really looking forward to getting married and having children. I’ve been waiting for someone to be an amazing father to my children, and it was so worth the wait’.
While in February 2020, before having to push her nuptials back to 2021, Sophie also shared some of her plans with The Daily Mail’s Sebastian Shakespeare

She said: ‘We feel our life together is moving forwards after the standstill of the past eight months. It will only be a civil wedding in February — a very small affair.
‘But we’ll have a big blessing ceremony in the summer that Kaz’s children can attend and all my family and friends who are all around the world.’
And speaking about relocating to Ireland, Sophie added: ‘The best thing I ever did was get out of London — much as I love London. I’ve now got the mountains.’
Since being in the spotlight Sophie has transformed her lifestyle and now prioritises her health and wellness following her highly publicised battle with drink and drugs.

Speaking to The Daily Mail in 2015, the media personality dismissed her past as ‘light years from where I am now.’
She explained: ‘I was very unhappy [in my 20s]. I had no control over who I was or how I looked.
‘I was a model but at some point modelling became only one part of what was required of us, and suddenly to be successful we had to be celebrities.
‘It’s not something that came naturally. I was terrible at being famous.’
