Dolph Lundgren, 65, marries Emma Krokdal, 27, “in the land of the gods”

Dolph Lundgren and Emma Krokdal are officially husband and wife.

‘Rocky IV’ star and Krokdal tied the knot in Mykonos, Greece, the newlyweds said in a statement to

“We chose to celebrate our love by getting married at our villa in Mykonos – together with our family and some close friends,” Lundgren, 65, and Krokdal, 27, said in a joint statement. “With both COVID and a long road of difficult medical treatments, we have had to push back our wedding plans several times.”

Adding, “Now we felt it was finally the right time to celebrate love, life and happiness. In the land of the gods.

The couple exchanged vows on July 13, per People.

The day before their wedding, the actor shared a photo of him and the Norwegian personal trainer cuddling up in a swimming pool.

“Tomorrow is the day. Mykonos,” he captioned the post and added a red heart emoji.

The couple got engaged in June 2020. The “Creed II” actor shared the news on his Instagram, posting a photo of his bride-to-be showing off her engagement ring.

“Something very special happened here in Sweden. D❤️E,” the caption read.

In May, Lundgren opened up about her eight-year battle with cancer. In 2015, doctors discovered a tumor in his kidney and he had it removed. A biopsy determined he was cancerous, and doctors later discovered other tumors.

During his battle with cancer, the action star said he had “two to three years” left to live, he said on ‘In Depth with Graham Bensinger.’

“(The doctor) started saying these things like, ‘You should probably take a break and spend more time with your family’ and so on,” he said. “So I kind of asked him, ‘How much time do you think I have left?’ And he said, “Two or three years,” but I could tell by his voice that he probably thought it was less.

Krokdal added: “We realized it was a lot worse than we thought. He started talking about all these different tumors in the lungs, stomach, and spine, besides the kidneys.

He has requested a second opinion and is undergoing further treatment.

“If I had done the other treatment, I would have about three to four months left,” Lundgren said. “I couldn’t believe it would be such a drastic difference – that in three months things were down 20, 30 percent.”
