>> Although it has been rumored for some time — and denied by her rep as recently as March — Natalia Vodianova has confirmed that she and husband Justin Portman, whom she married in 2001 (and with whom she has three children), are separated: "It's really sad. It has been a while. We didn't want to talk about it. We still don't. Our children are very much aware of it. It's OK. We're still in a very sensitive position right now, and trying to do things as amicably as possible, so I wouldn't want to talk about it at all. I don't think I ever will want to, because it's strictly between my husband and me."
When asked if she was currently seeing someone else, Vodianova replied: "This is not really something to discuss at the moment. It's sensitive." However, when prodded about whether she was in love, the model said: "Mmm-hmm. Yes, definitely." She would not, however, divulge an identity. Vodianova has recently been snapped with and linked to British financier Sasha Pesko, who used to date Eugenia Silva.
