Ella Rose was born in a small Swedish town. But then, she fell in love with California during her study abroad semester. She ended up moving permanently to the United States, taking classes at UCLA, and received a degree in broadcasting and marketing.

The 1m73 model is known for appearing in Karate music video by R3hap in 2014, together with model Arianny Celeste, as well as her on-off relationship with the famous football Julian Edelman, with whom Ella has a daughter, Lily Rose. Their whirlwind romance took the media by storm.

After the two broke up, Ella Rose’s modeling and influencer career flourished more than ever. Her Instagram account currently has nearly 800,000 followers. In August, the scorching photos that showed her in a bright bikini relaxing by the pool caused quite a stir among her fans!

Ella Rose, a single but strong mother

Ella Rose and Julian Edelman broke up during her pregnancy. She gave birth to baby Lily Rose alone. The baby girl is now 5 years old. Ella Rose regularly posts pictures of her beautiful daughter on Instagram. The mother daughter duo obviously share great life’s treasures and experiences together.

Referring to her daughter, Ella Rose smiled and said: “She is the sweetest girl. Her favorite things are horses and unicorn. She is very girly but also tough when it comes to playing sports.  Her favorite color is pink and she does have my personality.”

Ella Rose spends a lot of time with her daughter. To be financially independent, “besides modeling, I’m involved in real estate, and I’m also an investor in startup companies and crypto,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.

Her hobbies

Living in California, the blond-haired model prepares Swedish meals when she misses her hometown. She also loves to explore different types of cuisine. Her ‘fashionable dish’ is a chicken Parmesan with a creamy truffle risotto. “My daughter can be a picky eater but she does love my chicken Parmesan!”, Ella laughed.

Speaking four languages, Swedish, Croatian, German, and English, Ella has a love for languages. “Knowing as many languages as possible is great for your intellectual. If you don’t learn new things, you can’t expect to improve yourself,” Ella expressed her thoughts.

Ella Rose’s life lessons

Ella Rose admires Oprah Winfrey, Lady Di and Angelina Jolie. Oprah Winfrey has worked hard to become a powerful voice in American society. Princess Diana symbolizes purity and kindness. And Angelina Jolie is a goodwill ambassador of the United Nations, a real role model for women.

Drawing lessons after many ups and downs, Ella Rose said, “One thing I learned in life is that, though you should have goals, you shouldn’t plan too much because often we get disappointed if we do that.”

Her current goals are “getting further in my career and hopefully have a happy healthy family. I also hope to be able to help more people”, Ella concluded.
