How tall is Emma Weymouth?

A report from The Express details that Emma is 5 ft 8.

The model, who has posed for the likes of Dolce and Gabbana, said to the newspaper that she’s looking for a tall, strong partner.

It looks as though the Viscountess is pretty confident in dancing as she mentioned attempting lifts and brave moves. She said: “I want a tall dancer who is strong, obviously for the lifts and all the technical and really brave moves that they do.”

How is Emma a Viscountess?

Emma Weymouth, technically Emma Thynn, Viscountess Weymouth, was born in London in 1986 as Emma McQuiston. The 33-year-old was raised in South Kensington and sometimes hangs out with the Made in Chelsea cast.

She has made her way to Viscountess status but Emma already came from an upper-class background. Her mother is Suzanna McQuiston and her father, Chief Oladipo Jadesimi, is a Nigerian Chief and oil magnate.

Emma took on the title of Viscountess in 2013 when she married a Viscount.

She and her husband Ceawlin Thynn, Viscount Weymouth tied the knot in 2013 at their home of Longleat House.

Ceawlin Thynn’s father, Alexander George Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath, didn’t attend the wedding and the family feud hit the headlines. His reasoning was due to many changes being made at Longleat house which he didn’t approve of.

Emma and Ceawlin Thynn have two children together, both boys. Their firstborn, The Honourable John Alexander Ladi Thynn, is five years old and their second, The Honourable Henry Richard Isaac Thynn, is three years old.
