After her first unsuccessful married life, she was not seen with anyone.

The ex-husband is a great surfer.
Before entering the modeling world, Maria's husband, Laird, was already an established surfer.
In 1990, Laird made headlines as the first surfer to compete in a 360-degree loop while strapped to his board.
Her husband is regarded as a great surfer of all time because of his regular surfing at 35 feet tall and with a speed of 30 miles an hour.
But he takes surfing as an artistic work instead of having a professional career in it.
He was reluctant to compete in surfing contests as he was fed up watching politics going on in the surfing contest and the random luck of waves in the organized Championship.
He is even recognized as the inventor of the foil board, which helped the surfer to perform better in the water.
Her ex-spouse’s intense diet

He admitted to having a lot of fats like coconut oil, olive oil, and avocados. And he admitted to having love with Mac and that Mac nuts and the stuff containing high-fat content.
He confronted himself with being a fat-adapted system.
That system uses fat as an energy source, so fat as his energy source is much denser energy and burns more endurance and ultimately, your brain is a fatty eating organ, so your brain eats fats so for mental focus and clarity, people like him with a D D and C D D and all other abbreviates too; he added.
He continued that it’s great to focus for mental clarity and focus, which at the end of the day affects moods.
He also showed the red palm coconut oil, turmeric, cream he uses in his coffee, and many more.
