Rocky star Dolph Lundgren has been setting tongues wagging after stepping out with his new Norwegian fiancee Emma Krokdal.

At 24, she's 40 years his junior but the couple spoke in an interview earlier this year about their love for each other - with Emma even admitting she didn't know who he was when she first met him.

Typically enough for Dolph, he and Emma met at the gym.

"First time I met him he asked me if I knew a place he could box" Emma said to Swedish reporter Kjersti Flaa.

It was a seemingly innocuous exchange, with the 63 year-old then going travelling for some time, but when he returned the two got talking again.

Emma admits she didn't know who he was and had to be told by a work colleague. "He told me was Swedish and into action and boxing

"I don't really watch boxing or action movies so I had no idea who he was".

Dolph was more than happy with this though, saying he found it "cute". Aww.

Of course, going out with Dolph meant meeting his pals Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Emma hasn't been living under a rock so she did of course know who they were when she finally met them at a party, but said her friends found it more than exciting than her.

She says she doesn't hang out with too many of Dolph's Hollywood pals, but has seen Sly a few more times.

It's believed that the pair started dating in 2019 after meeting at a gym, before going public with the relationship in January 2020 at the Cana Dorada Film & Music Festival in the Dominican Republic.

They then announced their engagement in the summer of last year over Instagram.

"It happened very gradually, so it never felt forced - or that we rushed into it" said Dolph in January.

"I realised it would be a bit strange telling my daughters about her" the dad of two added.

"But they are both very open and emotionally mature."

Emma has only met Dolph's eldest daughter, Ida, but they apparently get along just great.

"They are happy when I am happy. That's the only thing that matters to them".

He also didn't discount having more kids with Emma, saying "If you are with the right person you feel it, that you could have a family with that person. Emma is a person like that."

Lundgren's past relationships haven't exactly been low profile - in the 80's particularly he was known for particularly notorious stints with singer and actor Grace Jones and model Paula Barbieri.

However, with his current partner he says he's very happy - and it seems like she is too. No matter the age difference.
