Personal life

Evangelista was born in Ontario to Italian parents.[1] At the age of 22, she married Elite executive Gerald Marie.[1] They were married from 1987 to 1993. After separating from Marie, she began a 6-year relationship with actor Kyle MacLachlan, and then divorced Marie.[2]

In 1999, she became pregnant by French football player Fabien Barthez. At 6 months pregnant, she delivered a stillborn baby. The couple then broke up and Evangelista left modelling for several years to get better.[3]

On October 11, 2006, Evangelista gave birth to a boy, Augustin James. She would not say who the father was.[2] While pregnant, she was on the August 2006 issue of Vogue. In late June 2011, Evangelista filed court papers that showed billionaire Frenchman François-Henri Pinault was the father. At the time he was the husband of actress Salma Hayek.[4][5] A heavily-publicized[6] child support trial began on May 3, 2012.[7] Several days into the trial, Evangelista and Pinault reached an out-of-court settlement.[8]
