'Rocky' star Dolph Lundgren, 65, marries Emma Krokdal, 27, at their Mykonos villa: 'Time to celebrate love'

Dolph Lundgren and fiancée Emma Krokdal tied the knot in Mykonos, Greece last week, Fox News Digital can confirm.

The 65-year-old Swedish actor and the 27-year-old Norwegian personal trainer married during an intimate ceremony at their villa on July 13.

“We chose to celebrate our love by getting married at our villa in Mykonos — with family and a few close friends,” the pair wrote in a statement. “With both Covid and a long road of challenging medical treatments, we’ve had to push our marriage plans many times.”

“Now we felt it as finally the right time to celebrate love, life and happiness. In the land of the Gods.”

In one photo, Lundgren and Krokdal were sporting wedding rings and both were wearing white. They were all smiles as Lundgren held a cigar in his mouth and pointed to Krokdal, who gazed at him lovingly. 

Ida added emojis of a white heart and a wedding chapel and tagged both Lundgren and Krokdal’s Instagram accounts.

She also uploaded a video that appeared to have been taken at an intimate party celebrating Lundgren and Krokdal’s nuptials.

“Tomorrow is the day. Mykonos,” he captioned the shot, along with a red heart emoji.

In June 2020, Lundgren announced that he had proposed to Krokdal in a post on Instagram. The duo were pictured celebrating with champagne on a balcony with Krokdal holding up her hand to show off a diamond engagement ring.

“Something very special happened here in Sweden,” “The Expendables” actor wrote in the caption. 

Lundgren previously told Fox News Digital while promoting his latest film “The Best Man” that he had plans to marry Emma for quite some time.

“I had it planned for a while. First, the pandemic kind of disrupted everything. And now, I was going to do it in Italy,” he detailed.

The “Creed II” star has previously spoken out about the age difference between him and Krokdal, who he first met at an Equinox gym in West Hollywood.

He pointed out that the personal trainer, who is 40 years his junior, “is very mature for her age,” during an appearance on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” in May.

Although he noted that the age difference is “severe,” he added that he has “been with people that are twice her age [who are] less mature than she is.”

He said his health struggles began when doctors found a tumor in his kidney in 2015. The doctors were able to remove the cancerous tumor, “then I did scans every six months, then you do it every year and it was fine, you know, for five years,” Lundgren said.

After his doctor told the “Don’t Kill It” actor to “spend more time with family,” Lundgren realized that the doctor did not think he had much time to live.

The “Aquaman” star confessed he was not “bitter about” the possibility of dying, saying that he had a “frickin’ great life.”

Lundgren told Bensinger that Krokdal stood by his side during his fight with the disease and was “super supportive.” 

“I started getting these side effects where I got diarrhea, and so I lost a lot of weight,” he recalled. “And that wasn’t very nice for myself, for, you know, my poor fiancée, who suffered through that.”
