Norman Reedus stole the heart of one super sexy original supermodel in the nineties
Before scooping parts in movies including Blade II and American Gangster, the 48-year-old star kicked off his entertainment career in modelling, where he managed to steal the heart of none other than original supermodel Helena Christensen.
The couple dated for five years, and even welcomed son Mingus Reedus, now 17, in October 1999.
Before their split in 2003, it was claimed that the couple had married, though the Danish beauty revoked the claims during a 2007 interview.

While the pair never tied the knot, Helena revealed to Porter magazine last year that she and her famous ex remain on good terms.
She gushed: "There are just some people in my life whom I would fight for until the end, no matter what. And Norman is one of them.
"There's him, my son, my boyfriend, my family. That's my South American side, where you fight for your family, you fight for the people you love.

Meanwhile, Norman will return to screens as formidable Daryl Dixon when The Walking Dead returns to UK screens on Monday.
Despite being held captive by the villainous Negan, Daryl will return armed with his cross-bow and ready to seek revenge.
The Walking Dead airs Monday at 9pm on Fox UK.
