Engdahl moved into Gustavsson's Stockholm residence shortly after they began dating. Unlike her first marriage, this romance has survived the test of time, and the couple is already engaged, intending to have a wedding soon.

Gustavsson appears fulfilled in her relationship with Engdahl, and she frequently shares photos of their time together.



Gustavsson delights fans with her impressive performance as an Amazon in "Vikings: Valhalla," where she explores North America with her brother.

As Eiríksdóttir, she is an independent and brave woman who can defend her region with her fighting skills. While speaking about her role, the actress mentioned that it took hard work to make it a reality but that it was worth it. She also added:

"She is allowed to take space and to be powerful. And to be able to portray that was just something that I would die to do."
