Israeli model opens up on living abroad, anxiety and a busy career

International model Coral Simanovich said she misses Israel but living away has brought her family closer.

At only 31-years of age, Simanovich, who is married to Spanish soccer star Sergi Roberto and a mother of two young children, is managing not only an international modeling career but is also a fashion designer and co-founder of NoCo Jewelry.

Simanovich is the presenter of French luxury beauty brand “Stenhal”, and the first Israeli to be in a campaign by “Guess”.

The picture perfect family has been living a lavish life in Barcelona since September 2016.

“My family is everything,” Simanovich said. “My home. My heart. My health. At least that’s how it is for me. It effects everything in life. I’m talking about my original family as well as the family I have built.

“The distance and living abroad is fraught with a lot of longing, and on the other hand there is something special about living far away because the relationship is always closer,” she said. “When you miss them, you appreciate your family way more. Its no longer taken for granted that you have them, so the relationship grows closer. I speak with them at least ten times a day.”

A new mother, Simanovich admits that parenting is ” a combination of the best and most challenging” thing that happened to her.

“In my opinion its one of the biggest tests of a relationship,” she said while sharing that it introduced a lot of new challenges into her and her husband’s marriage. “If you can get through that, its a sign that something there is strong.”

Simanovich, keeping her modeling and fashion career, does her best to have a balanced diet, workout regularly, and live a healthy lifestyle.

“I care about what I eat but I’m not fanatic at all. My focus is not on how I look, but rather on how I feel, what is healthy for me and what is good for my body,” she said. “If I didn’t eat healthy for a couple of days in a row, I won’t feel good, but not because its fattening. I don’t have a menu – I eat everything.
