FORGET the Strongmen, make way for the strong women who stand by Hafthor Bjornsson and Eddie Hall.

The former World's Strongest Man competitors went head-to-head on in Dubai in an exhibition boxing match in March.


Kelsey Henson, 32, and Alexandra Hall, 33, supported their men all the way.

Like their famous partners, Kelsey and Alexandra are both fitness-obsessed.

And when they are not hitting the gym, they are both playing the role of doting mum.

Here's how the two measure up in a battle of the Wags.

Kelsey

The Canadian beauty was working as a waitress when she met Bjornsson.

He was in Alberta for a strongman competition, when she approached him for a photo after recognising him as 'The Mountain' from Game of Thrones.

The 6ft9in muscle man duly obliged and the pair hit it off, despite their notable size difference. He dwarfs her 5ft2in frame.

After meeting him, she quit her job and followed his lead into bodybuilding.

A year after setting eyes on one another, they said their 'I do's' at an intimate ceremony.

She shared a photo on Instagram celebrating the moment with the caption: "Thank you for all of the adventures, the ups and downs, learning experiences and curves.

"Thank you for pushing me and motivating me to be my best. Thank you for showing me the meaning of true love and all it encapsulates.

"I’m so excited to see what the future holds for us! Time truly does fly when your having fun!"

The pair set up Thor's Power Gym together in Iceland, and she is building up her reputation as a fitness expert.

In between getting married and launching a gym, the pair also found time to become first-time parents.

Their baby boy Stormur was born in 2020, and both their Instagram feeds are devoted to him, as well as a separate page Kelsey calls uncensored mummy.





Alexandra

Entrepreneur Alexandra and Eddie Hall married nearly 10 years ago.

She calls herself an 'OG Strongwife' on social media, and is very involved with The Beast's diet.

Alexandra shares her foodie creations to her 94,000 followers on Instagram, and gives us a glimpse into their life.

With Hall eating up to 7,000 calories-per-day when he's in training, she certainly has her work cut out.

And she revealed his strict training regimen ahead of his fight with Bjornsson.

Alex told The Stoke Sentinel: "Eddie’s diet changes depending on what it is he is trying to achieve. At the minute, he is trying to lose fat and maintain muscle, so he is eating around 7,000 calories per day.

“He usually eats six meals per day, and the focus is on carbs, protein and vegetables.

“Eddie doesn’t eat normal sized meals, so I have to serve it to him on a platter because it’s too much food to fit on a plate.

“I cook all of Eddie’s meals, unless there are some days where I am overloaded with my own commitments. In that case, I will prepare it for him and I will leave him instructions on how to cook it.





“It’s not that Eddie can’t or won’t cook, but I don’t think he has ever had the time to try, he has always been so busy with training and competing.

“I try to take care of as much as I can around the house so that Eddie can focus completely on his training.”

As well as preparing hearty meals she is a mum to their son, Maximus. Eddie has a child from a previous relationship – a daughter called Layla.

While she maintains her physique by hitting the gym.
