Education and early life
Adriana was raised in Brezno alongside her younger sister Natalia, who’s today working in Paris, France as a lawyer, by their Slovak mother Zlatica Gazdikova who was a doctor, and Czech father Miroslav Sklenarik who was an engineer. When Adriana was born, Miroslav and Zlatica were still students, and she was thus mostly raised by her grandparents until she turned six.
Adriana had a rather normal childhood, but has revealed that her father always preferred her sister over her, and that he was cold and distant to her. She studied at a local high school in Brezno and was mostly into dancing during her time there, but also appeared in a couple of school plays and played sports.
Upon matriculating in 1990, she moved to Prague, Czech Republic and enrolled at Charles University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in medicine in 1994; it was in the same year that she was discovered by a French modelling scout, while she was competing in a beauty pageant.

Love life and husband
Adriana’s been married twice. Her first husband was French former professional soccer player Christian Karembeu, who’s today an actor and screenwriter; the two married on 22 December 1998 and divorced in 2012; it’s believed that that reason behind their divorce was Christian wanting children and Adriana not wanting to give birth at the age of 40, but this hasn’t been addressed by the actress.
She married non-celebrity Aram Ohanian in a small and private ceremony in June 2014, and not many people know that the two divorced in the second half of 2022, as Adriana prefers to keep this away from media.
