Dolph Lundgren has opened up about how much he's loving being married to his wife, Emma Krokdal, with whom he has a 39-year age gap.

The actor, 66, began dating the personal trainer, 27, in 2019 and the pair tied the knot last year, getting married in July 2023.

It seems the pair have been enjoying marital bliss ever since, as the Wanted Man star has been singing Emma's praises as they settle into life as husband and wife.

Dolph opened up about the first six months of their marriage, telling Fox News Digital it was a "good choice" to tie the knot.

He told the outlet: "Emma is great. She's wonderful. Great support. And we work together on a bunch of projects.

"She's very clever, and she's very smart for her age or for any age. So we produce stuff together. We have another project. We're working on a comedy."

Emma teamed up with Dolph on Wanted Man, playing the role of Justine as well as serving as a co-producer on the project. She was also listed as a creative consultant on the 2021 action thriller Castle Falls, which Dolph directed and starred in.

The Rocky star also revealed how hands-on Emma had been with working on Wanted Man, adding: "She helps me with the script and during the production and post-production. Just giving me a second opinion and double-checking.

"So it's actually getting married was a good choice, I really enjoy it."

Dolph married his Norwegian-born wife last year, with the couple making it official in an intimate ceremony in Mykonos, Greece, in July.

It's Dolph's third marriage, having previously been married to his first wife, Peri Momm, for just a year from 1991.

He then went on to marry interior designer Anette Qviberg in 1994. The couple share two daughters, Ida, 27, and Greta, 21, but divorced in 2011 after 17 years together.

Dolph is set to light up screens in Wanted Man, which will be released on January 17, playing an aging detective Travis Johanson "whose outdated policing methods have given the department a recent public relations problem."

He finds himself facing enemies on both sides of the Mexico border after being sent to extradite a female witness (Christina Villa) following the murders of two DEA agents.

The movie which was written by Dolph alongside screenwriters Michael Worth and Hank Hughes, will also star Kelsey Grammar, Michael Paré, and Roger Cross.

Dolph revealed that he drew on his own father Karl Lundgren for inspiration for the role, adding: "Anything I do I usually try to prepare ahead of time, especially if I'm directing, so just working on the backstory and the relationships. In this particular case, the character reminded me of my dad quite a bit because my dad was kind of bitter.

"He was a smart guy. And, you know, he was just kind of bitter and kind of down on himself a lot and had some anger issues. And I kind of drew on that a little bit for this character."

He added: "In my dad's case, he got more mellow as he got older a little bit, but he didn't quite turn the corner. I think this character does has a little more of a 180 towards the end. And so that was satisfying too."
