Model Petra Nemcova is engaged to British actor Jamie Belman (Emmerdale, Missing), reports Stylelist. Nemcova tragically lost her former fiance Simon Atlee in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Stylelist says:"Nemcova, a runway staple who has also worked for Victoria's Secret, barely survived the 2004 Tsunami which struck while she and Atlee, were vacationing in Thailand. She was swept away by raging ocean waters and clung to a tree for eight hours before being rescued. Atlee drowned." [Styelist]
