In an exclusive interview and photo shoot with HI THERE! Magazine, Sophie Anderton spoke to her fiancé, Count Kaz Balinski-Jundzill, about her new life on a 1,400 acre Irish estate – and says she has never been happier.
The supermodel lives with Kaz at the spectacular Glendalough House, which has water gardens, waterfalls, stables, a gym, hunting opportunities and even a mountain. All of this is a world apart from her jet setting career in the fashion world, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sophie and Kaz plan to get married at Glendalough House if restrictions allow. They are holding a very small public service in a nearby village next month before celebrating with more friends and family at a wedding blessing on the house lawn this summer.
“We’ll do it on the front lawn and it’ll be very relaxed,” she says. “There will be a candlelit blessing at dusk with all the trees lit up. Really simple and beautiful.”
In the interview, Sophie also reveals how Kaz suggested in November 2019. “We were just about to take a flight to London,” explains Sophie. “He woke me up at 5am and went down on one knee next to the bed. I said, “What are you doing ?!” I was half asleep and I didn’t register what was going on, so poor love thought I’d say no! But then I realized and I said, ‘Yeah, of course.’ “
