To put your life on the line every day for others is a GOD-given sense of love that only select few have. On NBC’s Chicago Fire, actress Monica Raymund does it every week. She started out as a paramedic but busted her tail until she made Truck. While her relationship with Matt may be rocky at times, she knows that he has her back.
As a fan of the show, I often ignore her beauty due to the black smog that normally covers her face as she escapes burning buildings, then we tend to view her as one of the guys but that she is not. Raymund is pure beauty in every sense of the word. She radiates when the camera spots her, that 1,000-watt smile can make the strongest man melt and the body was sculpted by the creator himself.
Raymund was born in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1986 to parents, Steve and Sonia. Her father is of Jewish descent and her mother hails from, Dominican Republic. Now, we see where that beauty comes from. Acting, was always her dream as she started in school plays which eventually led her to the Juilliard School in New York where she graduated in 2008.
Raymund got her break in 2009 with the Fox drama Lie to Me, then moved on to the CBS lawyer show The Good Wife until she landed a starring role in Chicago Fire as the sexy Gabriela Dawson. Her personal life has been a roller-coaster of sorts as she has come out of the closet and stated that she is bisexual, and has been for over 10 years.
She married screenwriter and actor, Neil Patrick Stewart in 2011 but they later divorced in 2014. She has revealed via Twitter that she is now dating Tari Segal, so once again I am left to imagine what would’ve been. Despite the setback Raymund and I may face she will always be my Woman Crush Wednesday.
