Jack White & Wife Have a Girl
Scarlett is the first child for the White Stripes frontman and model Karen Elson
White Stripes frontman Jack White and his wife, model Karen Elson, have had their first child.
The couple’s daughter, Scarlett, was born Tuesday in Tennessee, where they recently bought a home, White’s representative Chloe Walsh told the Associated Press.
White, 30, and Elson, 27, exchanged vows last June in the Brazilian city of Manaus. A small group of close friends watched the ceremony, which included Stripes manager Ian Montone as best man and Stripes drummer, Meg White, as maid of honor.
According to a posting on the band’s Web site at the time, the nuptials took place “on the confluence of three rivers – the Rio Negro, the Solimones and the Amazon,” and was officiated “by a traditional shaman priest on a canoe at the exact point where the three rivers met.”
The couple started dating in 2004. Elson stars in the video for the White Stripes’ song, “Blue Orchid.”
