Alma Versano is the daughter of Israeli actress Gal Gadot. Alms’s father, Jaron Versano, is a real estate developer. She is the first child of her parents, and despite being a celebrity offspring, her initial years were spent away from the media glare. Unlike her sister, who was already in the news even before her birth, Alma’s arrival did not make any headlines. The reason behind it was her mother's shooting schedules. At the time Gal was pregnant with Alma, she did not have any significant Hollywood projects, whereas she was shooting for 'Wonder Woman’ months before Maya’s birth. The Versano sisters can be often seen on Gal and Jaron’s Instagram pages. Alma’s parents regularly post pictures of the family’s happy moments on their social media pages. Even though Alma is an American-born Israeli, she is of mixed heritage, with most of her ancestors being Jewish and European.
Rise to Fame
Alma Versano was born in November 2011 in the United States. Her younger sister Maya Versano was born on 21 March 2017 in Los Angeles, US. Not much is known about Alma's birth, probably because Gal was yet to become a Hollywood star at that time. When Gal was pregnant with Maya, she was shooting for 'Wonder Woman.' Hence, the former Miss Israel’s pictures with a pregnant belly were plastered all over the tabloids. The young Versano girls, Alma and Maya, are mostly kept away from the media glare, as their parents rarely take them to any public events. However, one can find Alma's pictures on Gal and Jaron's Instagram pages. The hotelier and the ‘Wonder Women’ actress often share their precious moments spent with their girls.
Since Gal is a prominent advocate of women empowerment, she hopes that her daughters too grow up with the same values and become strong and opinionated women one day. While Alma is still quite young to fully comprehend the issue of gender equality, she is a big fan of the comic character 'Wonder Woman'. She was a regular on her mother's shoots and enjoyed the whole experience of seeing one of her favorite comic characters come to life. Gal set a remarkable example before Alma while shooting for 'Wonder Woman’, as the pregnant actress not only performed her own action sequences but also looked after her daughter. According to some media reports, Alma is already vying to play the role of Wonder Woman after her mother gives it up.
Alma's parents have an age gap of 10 years, but it did not affect their bonding in any way. In fact, Gal and Jaron fell in love with each other in their first meeting. The couple first met at a party, held in a yoga retreat in the Israeli desert. More than the party, the duo enjoyed each other’s company. Not too long after their first meeting, they found themselves in a relationship. Jaron told Gal on their second date that he would marry her after two years. He kept his promise, and they tied the knot on 28 September 2008 at the 'David Intercontinental' hotel, situated in a prime location of Tel Aviv.
