Jeff Gordon will honeymoon in Avondale this weekend. The four-time NASCAR Cup champion married Belgian model Ingrid Vandebosch in a private ceremony in Mexico on Tuesday, Gordon’s spokesman, Jon Edwards, confirmed.
Vandebosch, best known for her minor role as a bank robber who cracked safes and skulls in the 2004 film Taxi, celebrated her 37th birthday on Wednesday. She and Gordon met through a mutual friend in 2003.
Gordon announced their engagement in June.
Vandebosch has appeared in magazines such as Elle, Vogue and Glamour. She was recently featured in Stuff magazine and has developed her own line of lingerie.
It’s the second marriage for Gordon, who is divorced from former Miss Winston Brooke Sealy in 2003.
