Emely Fardo Palmer works as a model and photographer

As reported by The Sun, Emely Fardo Palmer (née Emely Fardo) was born in Brazil before making the move to the United States. And besides being Mrs. Palmer, it's reported that she works in front of and behind the camera as both a model and a photographer. 

Per the Daily Mail, Jesse Palmer and Fardo first met during a chance encounter at a boxing class in New York City. "I saw her and thought she was beautiful. I didn't meet her until later, she was coming in while I was leaving," Palmer dished about the impromptu meeting. "We ended up connecting and our first date was at Rumble two weeks later," he added. After that, it appears the rest is simply history.

Once Palmer decided to pop the question, however, he embarked on a long, arduous quest to find his leading lady the perfect ring. "I was trying to find the right one she would like. I wanted to get the ring shape, setting and band right," he explained. Spoiler alert: the recipient of the 3.5 carat sparkler LOVED it. "She said I knocked it out of the park," he boasted of Fardo's reaction to the engagement ring. Congrats to the happy couple!
