Brad Pitt's girlfriend, Nicole Potralski, might come off as one who has been in wealth all her life, but the truth is that her childhood was filled with tough times.


Everyone has a challenge they face in life. While some encounter challenges later in life, others might be exposed to life's troubles from a tender age.

Brad Pitt's girlfriend, Nicole Poturalski, is a top international model that has graced prominent fashion magazines. Still, the journey to being a global model took years and challenging childhood.

Growing up, all Poturalski ever wanted was to become a top model. From an early age, she practiced how to catwalk by drawing lines on the sand to create a fashion runway.

While other kids were playing on the swing and laughing around during school, Poturalski was always found strutting up and down, trying to perfect the way models walk. A friend close to her revealed:

"Nicole was really young when she started doing this. She could only have been eight or nine years old."


Poturalski did not have the same privileges other kids her age had because her mother, Agnieszka, was separated from her father, Janus, hence causing only her mother to take care of her and her sister.

Poturalski, her mother, and sister lived in a rundown council block of flats, and due to the hardship they faced, Poturalksi lived in her dream of being a model in order to escape the adversity they faced.

Pitt and Poturalski sparked relationship rumors when they were first pictured sometime in November 2019.


All her years of hard work began to pay off when at the age of 13, a fashion scout spotted her during a visit to Disneyland Paris. It was from there her modeling career got a kickstart.

She, however, had to take a break from modeling to go back to school. Poturalski attended the local 1,000 strong Städtische Gymnasium Kamen state secondary school and graduated with flying colors.


At the age of 19, Poturalski moved to Berlin to begin modeling full time. While she considered being a marine biologist at some point, she changed her mind and stuck to her first love, which was modeling and fashion.

Over the years, Poturalski has been able to put her international background to fair use, and as of today, it is reported that she is fluent in five languages.


Before dating Brad Pitt, she was in a relationship with the restauranter and cafe owner Roland Mary. They welcomed a son named Emil together, although Poturalksi tries to shield him from the public eye by keeping information about him away from the media.

Pitt and Poturalski sparked relationship rumors when they were first pictured sometime in November 2019, and things began to look serious between the two when they were spotted spending some time alone, in France.

Knowing how high profile their relationship is, Pitt and Poturalksi have been keeping things on the low while enjoying each other's company.
