Model Emily Ratajkowski has spoken openly about her new single status following her divorce from producer Sebastian Bear-McClard in July 2022. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Ratajkowski admitted that she had never been single before and felt a range of emotions, including anger, sadness, and joy. The couple married in February 2018 and had their first son, Sylvester, in March 2021, but split amid rumors of infidelity. Ratajkowski paid tribute to her husband in the acknowledgments for her debut book but has since moved on.
Following their split, the 30-year-old model candidly shared that she had always wanted to be “chosen” and struggled with deciding what she liked in a partner. However, now she has embraced the dating scene and enjoys going on dates to discover her likes and dislikes. Ratajkowski was linked to Brad Pitt after her split and later confirmed that she was dating comedian Pete Davidson but recently parted ways.
Apart from her love life, Ratajkowski has been active in advocating for women’s rights, body positivity, and mental health. She recently launched a podcast called “My Body: Exploring Femininity,” based on her book “My Body: A Memoir.” The model and author also raised funds for women’s organizations by auctioning a non-fungible token (NFT) of a photograph of herself.
Ratajkowski’s openness about her emotions and her decision to embrace her single status serves as a reminder that it’s okay to feel a range of emotions in the aftermath of a divorce. She is also an inspiring figure for her work in advocating for women and using her platform to highlight issues surrounding body image and mental health.
