Daniel and Victoria met when she became a member at the gym Master Training, which Daniel owns. He became her personal trainer and well.. they fell in love.
That was probably in the spring of 2002 and the first time we heard about Daniel was in april/may 2002. And the first photo of them together (and kissing ) was taken in July 2002 at a birthday party of Victorias friend Caroline Kreuger.
The press have written that he is very shy and doesn´t like beeing in the limelight, that could be why he isn´t very relaxed and showing emotions in public. How it is when ther are alone, we have ofcourse no idea of
This spring/summer Daniel has been more open and relaxed towards the press and because of this, speculations that they are to get married next summer has started.
Victoria tells at their wedding book "Vårt bröllop" about how she and Daniel met:
"I was wondering what kind of training possibilities there was and went with a friend to her gym. It was small and personal, uncomplicated and had a relaxed atmosphere. I thought also that it had warm and relaxed atmosphere so I became a member. That's how Daniel and I met and we got a very fine relationship, and after some time we became very good friends".
