The stunning model was a guest on Ellen Degeneres on May 10th. Ironically Stevie Nicks, from one of Rosie's favorite groups, performed and promoted her newest CD "In Your Dreams". Stevie sang "Secret Love."
Early lifeRosie was born at the Freedom Fields Hospital in Plymouth, Devon, England, the daughter of Fiona, a fitness instructor, and Charles Huntington-Whiteley, a chartered surveyor.
Besides her killer body and shimmering strands her lush full lips are considered to be one of her most famous assets. At the age of 13 she was voted Girl Most Likely To Become A Supermodel.In 2003, while studying at Tavistock College, she was discovered by Profile Model Management while seeking internships with several London based modeling agencies. Her first gig in front of the camera was at 16, posing for a Levi's commercial.
She spent all of her first check on a Ford Ka, even though she couldn't drive, thinking it would be the one and only time she would ever get paid for modeling. Of course Rosie was seriously mistaken. Her modeling career has skyrocketed and is sizzling.
