Brooke Shields has gone viral after complimenting her ex-husband’s new wife’s body in the latest SKIMS campaign which sees a group of celebrities talk body image.

The campaign is for the launch of SKIMS bras, but this is actually not the first time we have heard about Brooke commenting on Steffi Graff, who is married to Andre Agassi.

Let’s take a look at the SKIMS campaign, Brooke’s marriage to Agassi, and what she has said about Graff…

What has Brooke Shields said about Steffi Graff’s body?

In the latest SKIMS campaign video, Shields can be seen wearing a brown bra, with matching underwear and tights. She says: “One of the most perfect bodies is… my ex-husband’s wife.”

She is, of course, referring to Steffi Graf, the tennis player who married Brooke’s ex, Andre Agassi, in 2001.

In his autobiography, titled Open and published in 2009, Agassi looks back on his marriage to the actress. Speaking about their wedding preparations, he writes that Brooke had a “rigorous premarital training reigmen.”

“For motivation, she tapes a photo on the refrigerator door. It’s a photo of the perfect woman, she says. The perfect woman with the perfect legs—the legs Brooke wants. The photo is of Steffi Graf,” the book reads.

When was Brooke Shields married to Andre Agassi?

Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi were married from 1997 to 1999. They began dating in 1993, and went on their first date in Los Angeles shortly after Christmas, having been set up by a mutual friend. However, things between them were often fraught.

Despite the growing tension in their relationship, Agassi explains in his book, he decided to propose.

Of his wedding, he wrote: “My wedding looms. I think all the time about postponing it, or calling it off altogether, but I don’t know how.”

In her own memoir, There Was A Little Girl, Shields wrote the marriage “felt somehow not what it was supposed to be” but it was “easy to avoid dealing with it.”

When did Steffi Graff and Andre Agassi wed?

Agassi and Graff began dating in 2000, and in 2001 they excitedly announced Steffi’s pregnancy.

“It’s what we both wanted, and she’s delighted, but frightened too. So many changes,” Agassi said at the time.

He proposed to her shortly after, and the couple now have two children together: Jaden Gil, who was born in 2001, and Jaz Elle, who was born in 2003.

The couple live in Summerlin, in the Las Vegas Valley, with their children.
