Nicole Kimpel is Antonio Banderas’ girlfriend. The ‘Mark of Zorro’ star has been dating the Dutch-German investment adviser, 20 years his junior, since divorcing Melanie Griffith. You can see photos of the couple and find out the latest developments.
The couple have become a fixture on the red carpet and often the target of paparazzi. The 55-year-old Antonio Banderas began dating 35-year-old Nicole Kimpel in late 2014 at around the time that Banderas’ and his then-wife Melanie Griffith announced their split. He had been married to the Hollywood star — and mother of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ star Dakota Johnson — for nearly 18 years; since 1996. The couple announced their slit in June 2014 and the divorce became final last December. The couple has one daughter together, actress Stella del Carmen Banderas.
As for the details of the Nicole Kimpel biography, little is known as she is not an actress or model or singer. In the media she is described variously as an investment adviser. Her age is reported as 36. She is not in the entertainment business at all. According to Hello magazine, Kimel is believed to have met Banderas in May 2014 at the Cannes Film Festival; they were first spotted together.
As of late, since his divorce from Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas left Southern California and relocated with his new girlfriend to the village Surrey in southeast England, far away from the spotlight — save for the aforementioned red carpet forays.
In a recent interview he himself shed some life on the couple’s quiet life together. He said, “This house gives me the simplicity and freedom I need in my life at the moment. I find Surrey magical.”
