Mette-Marie Kongsved (born May 10, 1991) is a 31-year-old Danish-born American film producer famous for movies such as Come to Daddy (2019), Nine Days (2020), and I Blame Society (2020) among others. However, she is best known as the partner of famous American actor Elijah Wood.
Elijah Wood rose to fame as Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. This article takes a look into the life, career, and family of Mette-Marie Kongsved.
Mette-Marie Kongsved was Born in 1991
Mette-Marie Kongsved is 31 years old. She was born in Denmark on May 10, 1991, under the zodiac sign of Pisces. The precise location of her birth in Denmark is not known, but Mette-Marie Kongsved enjoys a dual citizenship status, first as a citizen of Denmark due to her birth status in the European country, and later on as a United States citizen due to her migration to the country and subsequent marriage to one of its citizens.
The talented producer has largely remained anonymous despite her involvement, however minimal, in the American movie industry. One of the by-products of her decision to be on the periphery of things is the fact that details of her early life and birth family history have remained unknown to the public and the media.
There is no disputing the fact that Mette-Marie has a mixed ethnic identity after she was born to a mixed Danish couple; however, the identity of said parents has yet to be revealed to the public. Along with not knowing who her parents are, there is also no evidence at the moment to suggest that they had any other children apart from Mette-Marie.
She was Educated in the United States
Mette-Marie immigrated to the United States with her parents when she was a very young girl. It is also believed that although she was born in Denmark, she spent the majority of her formative years in the United States, where she received the necessary formal education.
With regards to her formal education, Mette-Marie has yet to reveal the finer details of her formal education training, such as the high school she went to, the college or colleges she attended, what kind of qualifications/certificates she acquired from the institutions, and what year she graduated from school.
Mette-Marie Kongsved is Not Married To Elijah Wood
Despite the fact that the beautiful producer has been in a long-term relationship with American actor Elijah Wood, she has yet to even be engaged to him, not to talk of getting married to him. Mette-Marie met Elijah Wood in 2016 when they were both working on the production of the 2017 movie I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore.
Mette-Marie and Elijah have been together as partners for over five years after publicly confirming the existence of a said relationship in January 2018. They have been spotted together at various locations over that period, including during their first official appearance as a couple at the Rodarte FW19 fashion show in February 2019. Their relatively lengthy relationship has produced a son named Evan Kongsved Wood.
Mette-Marie and Elijah found out they were expecting a child on December 24, 2018, and the public was let in on the secret in July 2019 when Mette-Marie publicly appeared with a baby bump. At this point, we feel it is important to reveal that one year after his break up from Pamela Racine, the actress he dated from 2005 to 2010, Elijah wood revealed that he hoped to get married and have a child one day.
His relationship with Mette-Marie gave him the potential to fulfill those hopes, and he has already witnessed the fulfillment of one of the hopes he voiced in 2011 with the birth of his son Evan in 2019, and there is still a chance that his hope of marriage would also be fulfilled if or when he decides to get married to Mette-Marie.
Although Elijah Wood has never been married, Mette-Marie, for her part, was previously married to American film director, producer, and screenwriter Evan Louis Katz popularly known as E.L. Katz. The timeline of their relationship is restricted to the knowledge that they were married from 2011 to 2017.
There is currently no record of how they met, how long they dated, or where they had their wedding ceremony. One indisputable aspect of their 6-year marriage is the fact that they didn’t have any children together.
