Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge tied the knot in France over the weekend: Inside Sofia Richie's long dating history!  

Best known as the youngest daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie, Sofia Richie is a model and a fashion designer. Richie might be young and have a lot of time to plan out her future career trajectory, but she is, so far, better known for her exciting personal life. In a nutshell, the model's life makes up good fodder for savory headlines and gossip.  

Sofia Richie was born on August 24, 1998, in Los Angeles, California, to Lionel and his second wife, Diance Alexander. Richie has an innate affinity for music and even trained to venture into the field at a young age before departing from that dream in fear of being put against her successful father. The youngest Richie, instead, cemented a reputable career in modeling.

After a string of high-profile relationships, Richie's low-key romance with the music executive Elliot Grainge has proven to be the most effective. Grainge, the son of Universal Music Group Chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge, proposed to Sofia in April 2022, and are now happily married.

Richie and Grainge's swanky wedding took place on April 22 at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock in Antibes, France. Several pap-captured snaps show the bride donning a sleek custom Chanel wedding dress as her father walked her down the aisle. The duo's star-studded ceremony includes distinguished guests like Paris Hilton, her husband Cartel Reum, Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden, and more.  

Sofia and her now-husband have been updating fans with their many pre-wedding celebrations for weeks. The model also revealed that she has converted to Judaism to honor her husband, who was raised Jewish.

"What a magical day," Sofia wrote on her Instagram story after the wedding, adding "It has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. Today was that day."

Lionel had shared scornful comments about Sofia's headlining-racking romances before Elliot, but the My Love crooner approved when his model daughter started dating the music executive. Lionel took to Instagram to commemorate his daughter's big day as he shared a carousel of pictures from the dreamy wedding. 

"My little girl is all grown up and starting her own journey with the love of her life," Lionel wrote, adding, "You'll always be my little bird, but I'm so proud of the woman you've become. Endless Love to you and Elliot." 

The newly married also gave fans snippets of the affair on their Instagram account.

Richie was fresh out of a high-profile relationship when she sparked romance rumors with Elliot in March 2021. A month into the swirling speculation and Richie and Grainge were already official.

An insider revealed that Sofia likes that "(Elliot) low-key and isn’t someone who craves the spotlight." "You are everything to me. I love you, Happy birthday babe," Richie wrote on the occasion of Grainge's 28th birthday in November. 

The twosome's gushy posts kept coming, and in a whirlwind fashion, the model announced their engagement after a year of dating bliss.  

"Forever isn't long enough @ elliot," Richie wrote as she shared a close-up snap of the couple sharing a kiss, with Sofia's big rock on full display. 

An insider revealed that the duo bonded on music and their similar backgrounds. "They initially bonded over their love of music and growing up in the industry," the source said.

Sofia's now-husband, Grainge, 29, might prefer a life away from the limelight, but that doesn't mean his life and career are any less glamorous. The music scion runs his label, 10K Projects, which has signed artists like Trippie Redd and Tekashi. 

The Complete Truth About Sofia Richie's Dating History! 

Off to leave a private, happy conjugal life with her reserved husband, Sofia was once the beacon of prolific romances in Hollywood. The model was notoriously linked with Jaden Smith, Jake Andrews, and Samir Nasri before she even turned 20. Sofia's first official relationship, and quite infamous, was with singer Justin Bieber.

The model and the Canadian singer dated in August 2016, when the Sorry crooner briefly separated from his long-time girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Sofia even went on record to call her relationship with Bieber "special" before facing a break up with the singer after a month. Richie sparked dating rumors with David Beckham's son, Brooklyn Beckham, in 2017.  

Richie's most high-profile and controversial relationship remains with Scott Disick, who is 16 years her senior. The pair were first linked in early 2017. "Just so everyone can get their panties out of their asses, Scott and I are just homies," Richie wrote while shutting the rumors down. But the cats were out of the bag pretty soon.  

The duo's romance garnered more hate than love, not just because of their age gap. Richie was 19, and Scott, a mid-30 guy with three kids, whom he shares with Kourtney Kardashian. The former couple's on-and-off relationship was chronicled on the family's Keeping Up with the Kardashian until they split in 2020.
