Boyfriend & Dating History
There were multiple reports around 2015 that said she’s dating Nick, who’s the ex-fiancé Sofia Vergara.
US Weekly reported that according sources, the pair had been “seeing each other for a couple of months,” and stating that they had attended Golden Globes together.
However, her rep stated that they apparently were no more than friends.
Alex Høgh Andersen
Since Alex joined Vikings cast in 2016, rumors about how she seemed to have good relationship with Katheryn started to spread.
This caused fans to show support for them to date in real life. However, it appeared that they kept professional relationship off-screen. The fact that they have 16-year age gap might contribute significantly to that.
She posted an intimate photo on her social media page around August 2020, in which she seemed to pose with her rumored boyfriend as she put a red heart in the caption.
The man on the photo turned out to be Michael, who’s a business man.
Some of her co-stars in Vikings, such as Kirsty Dawn Dinsmore, Clive Standen, and Ragga Ragnars showed their supports and affection on the post.
Although, most sources online estimated her net worth to be merely $1 million, the possible actual number is far, far higher than that, at $185 million.
The number makes sense since she has started her professional career in acting since the late 90s and has appeared in numerous film and TV projects.
On top of that, she also earns her income through brand endoresement deals, property holdings, and stock investments.
She’s listed at the very top stop in the 10 highest-paid actresses in 2023 according to the People With Money report.
This is based on the estimation that she earns a total annual income of $58 million. The data is collected from April 2022 to April 2023
She is the owners of several restaurants located in Canada, inlcuding Ottawa-located Fat Winnick Burger chain.
She also owns Etobicoke Angels football team, Pure Wonderwinnick Vodka brand, With Love from Katheryn perfume line, and Katheryn Winnick Seduction fashion line.
She purchased a mansion located in the LA’s beachy and luxury neighborhood Marina Del Rey in 2018, for $2.5 million.
Two years later, in 2020, she listed the property on the market for $3.3 million.
