ANNA Freemantle was born in Amsterdam and was working in a London bar when she was spotted by a scout for Isis modelling agency.
She was 19 at the time, and quickly found herself working alongside star models such as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell on catwalks all over the world. She has been with her South African-born artist husband Jonathan for 11 years.
The couple moved to Edinburgh nearly five years ago after they decided that they did not want to live in London. Edinburgh was suggested by a friend, they visited and decided to stay.
Anna remains in demand as a model. She modelled for Chanel just weeks after the birth of first son Max and is currently preparing for a high-profile fashion shoot for lingerie firm La Perla.
