Would you believe it if I told you that it’s nearly been a whole four years since the tanned, blue-eyed convict, Jeremy Meeks stole the hearts of millions of women from all corners of the world?
Incredibly, it was back in June, 2014, that the former inmate was dubbed the “world’s hottest felon”, making waves on pretty much every social media platform.
It all began after the 34-year-old’s mugshot went viral, seemingly overnight, when it was posted on the Stockton Police Department’s official Facebook page.
And why did that particular mugshot gain such rapid interest? Well, simply because the internet couldn’t get over how smolderingly hot Jeremy was.
While it could have been so easy for Jeremy to fade back into obscurity after his stint in prison, this was far from the case.
In fact, the former prison inmate who made who was affectionately nicknamed “The Blue-Eyed Bandit” managed to land himself a modeling contract with an agency practically the moment he was released from prison in March 2016.
Watch the footage from his Runway debut at Fashion Week:
Millions upon millions of women began to fawn over the “hot felon”, all the while neglecting to realize that he was, in fact, a married man and father-of-one.
Indeed, many of his fans were shocked to discover that he had been with his wife, Melissa, for eight years before it abruptly ended in 2016.
After news of the split came to the fore, it soon emerged that Jeremy had moved on from his former family life with his wife and seven-year-old son.
Yes, last summer it was being reported that he had begun seeing Chloe Green, a Topshop heiress, and had no qualms about publicizing the relationship all over Instagram.
While the pair seem happy together in the snaps, Melissa has had nothing positive to say about the blossoming relationship.
As the former couple’s divorce proceedings continue, she has been pretty candid about Jeremy’s new relationship with Chloe.
In face, in one Instagram post, she seemed to imply that Jeremy had already cheated on his new girlfriend, writing:
“Thank you for all the positive love…I’ve never been in a better place in my life than I am now. My ex husband has already been unfaithful in his new relationship. With me… Id rather be alone and happy with self respect then to be played.”
However, it does seem that Jeremy and Chloe are in it for the long-term according to US Weekly‘s sources.
Last week, there were rumors that the pair were looking to start a family together, and now a number of sources are claiming that they are already expecting their first child. “Chloe wants to get pregnant right away,” a source said. “She’s off the booze already.”
And apparently, Jeremy and Chloe have the blessing of Chloe’s mother and father in their pursuit of starting their own family.
“Her parents have recently done an unexpected U-turn on Jeremy, and are now embracing him as one of the Greens,” it was claimed. “They are resigned to the fact he’ll be a part of their lives forever”.
Well, if the couple are happy enough and feel ready to start a family together then I all I can say is good luck to them! Let’s hope Jeremy will continue to stay on the straight and narrow for the newest addition to his family.
