But what else is there to know about him? We take a look at his background, love life and net worth.

Who is David Gandy? What is his background?

David James Gandy, 38, was born February 19, 1980, in Essex and is a British model.

The Billericay native studied Multimedia Computing and Marketing at the University of Gloucestershire.

Unbeknown to him, his flatmate at the time entered him into a model-search competition on ITV's This Morning.

On June 27, 2001, he won the competition at the age of 21, which included a contract with Select Model Management.

From then on, he took the industry by storm, catching the eye of designers with his masculine build in comparison to the extremely thin male models they often saw on the runway.

He started off by modeling for various brands including Zara, Gant, Hugo Boss, and H&M.

However, once he caught the eye of the Dolce & Gabanna designers, they couldn't help but make him the face of their apparel campaigns and fashion shows.

They worked with him nonstop for 6 years, which included photoshoots with Scarlett Johansson, Gisele Bundchen, and Naomi Campbell among many others.

David was dubbed “The First Male Supermodel” after he pulled off the exceedingly rare feat of being as successful in modelling as his female counterparts.

He is more recently known for being the face of M&S menswear.

Is David Gandy single? Who has he dated?

In 2011, he started a relationship with Mollie King, the singer from The Saturdays.

However, ten months later, the couple announced that they had split up.

He then started seeing English model Sarah Ann Macklin for about a year from May 2012 to their break-up in 2013.

In 2015, David and Mollie reconciled but in early 2016 they had split up again.

He is now dating barrister Stephanie Mendoros, whom he started dating in July 2016.

The pair have a daughter named Matilda who was born in November 2018.

The first-time father announced the news on his Instagram, saying: "Daddy, Dora and new addition Matilda out for our first walk together this morning.

"Baby Matilda was born last week, both mother and baby doing incredibly well.

"Only worrying thing is I'm now totally outnumbered by females in my house."

What is David Gandy's net worth?

David is one of the world's biggest male model, and therefore is paid accordingly.

The hunk has an estimated fortune of £12million.

Last year he earned £4million, making him the only male model on Britain's Richest Models Top Ten List.
