Early life[ edit ] Nordegren was born in Stockholm , Sweden. Her father, Thomas Nordegren , is a radio journalist who served as a bureau chief in Washington, D. Marriage to Tiger Woods[ edit ] Nordegren took a job in a Stockholm clothing store called Champagne, where she met Mia Parnevik, wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik , who hired Nordegren as the nanny to their children, a job that required her to move full-time to the U. After Woods' subsequent infidelity was revealed, Parnevik was quoted as having said, "I'm kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is. They were gaga over her.
