Boyfriend & Affairs:
Well, Gal Gadot has had only one public relationship. And that is with her husband Yaron Versano, who is a real estate developer.
On 28 September 2010, Gadot and Versano tied the knot. The private ceremony was held in front of the couple’s family members and nearest friends.
Interestingly, the bride, Gal Gadot is ten years younger to her husband, Yaron. This goes to prove that love has no age indeed!
In fact, almost six years later, on 14 April 2016, Gal Gadot wrote something on her Facebook wall (which showed how the love for each other remained the same even after 10 years of their first meeting). She wrote:
“10 years have gone by, yet it feels like yesterday we first met…My heart will forever beat to the sound of our love”.
Do you know how they first met?
In 2000, at a party held in Israeli Desert, when Yaron was attending the International School of Amsterdam. Finally in 2010, Yaron proposed to Gadot with a beautiful engagement ring by saying “Will you marry me?”
How much time did Gadot take to accept his proposal? None at all.
Within a year of their engagement, Gadot and Yaron got married.
The couple never shy of disclosing their love for each other. Which is a good sign of their bonding, isn’t it?
Gal’s biggest career breakthrough was when she was roped in to play the character of Giselle Yashar for the ‘The Fast and the Furious’ film series.
And then came in “Wonder Woman” – the 1st superhero movie in over a decade to have a female in the title role.
