Anna Pořízková And Jiří Pořízek: Meet Paulina Porizkova Parents

Paulina Porizkova was born to her Swedish parents: father Jiří Pořízek and mother Anna Pořízková in Czechoslovakia.

Her parents were anti-Soviet dissidents and had fled Czechoslovakia to Sweden, to escape the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion.

Paulina was left with her grandmother and was barred by the Czechoslovak authorities to be claimed by her parents.

Her case had become a widely publicized case in the Swedish media back in the days. The family was finally reunited after seven years with the help of Olof Palme, the former Prime Minister of Sweden.

Hence, Paulina acquired Swedish citizenship after the incident; but, sadly, her parents divorced soon after. Moreover, her father did not pay child support for Paulina and her younger brother; hence, they have been estranged since then.

Per our sources, her mother worked as a midwife and even served in the Peace Corps in Uganda. She remarried at least twice after her separation from Paulina’s father.

Meet Paulina Porizkova Husband

Paulina Porizkova was married to her late husband Ric Ocasek, who was the lead singer of the rock band The Cars. They met in 1984 during the band’s music video shoot.

The couple was married for more than three decades until their separation in 2017. Paulina had made the news of their separation public only after a year in May 2018.

Her ex-husband Ric passed away in 2019 while their official divorce was still in the process. Ric had disinherited Paulina out of his will as she had allegedly abandoned him.

Ric had undergone an unspecified surgery and died in the home that he shared with Paulina.

Also, it was reported that Paulina dated director Aaron Sorkin, but the relationship did not last long.

Who Are Paulina Porizkova Children?

Paulina Porizkova is the mother of her two children; her sons Jonathan Raven Ocasek and Oliver Ocasek. Her elder son Jonathan was born on November 4, 1993, while Oliver was born in 1999.

Her both sons were included in the will of Ric while Ric had kicked out his eldest two sons from his first marriage.

Pauline is the third wife of her late husband Ric who bore two sons from his three marriages.

Meanwhile, Pauline shares a close bond with both of her sons as she has often posed with them on her Instagram handle.
