If the natural charm and charisma that oozes out of Brazilian-born model Marlon Teixeira were to be bottled-up for sale, his female fans will be falling over themselves in order to make a purchase. In his brief time in the world of fashion, Marlon is already a household name with some major advertising campaigns to his credit. The fashion Adonis has remarkably worked with most giants of the fashion industry.

The hunk was discovered when he was introduced to the Way Model Management owner by his grandma. Marlon accomplished his breakout campaign at the 2008 Spring Dior Homme show staged in Paris and since then, his dark bronzed looks and natural talent has put him on the short list of the biggest companies in the fashion world. Top clients like Iceberg, Custo Barcelona, Armani Exchange, DSquared, and Diesel are on constant demand for his services. With his age – which is relatively young, Marlon has a long career in front of him.

Marlon Teixeira’s Age and Ethnicity

The famous runway model was born as Marlon Luiz Teixeira in Santa Catarina, Brazil, on the 16th of September 1991. This makes him a Brazilian national. His parents are identified as Luiz Alberto (father) and Claudia Regina Teixeira (mother). Marlon was born under the zodiac sign of Virgo, his family members are staunch Catholics and he grew up as one.

The international runway model’s ethnicity can be described as multi-racial with a mixed ancestry of Japanese, Portugal and native Brazilian, this may yet be the reason for his arresting good looks. On his educational background and qualifications, there is no information available on that score.

Marlon Teixeira started his modeling career with Dior Homme in 2008 and since then, he has been on high demand in the fashion world. He has made several appearances on the pages of classy fashion magazines like Vogue Espana, W magazine – with Ginnifer Goodwin, GQ, V, Elle, and Vanity Fair – with Shakira. He has also bagged a few awards and accolades in the course of his modeling career.


The Brazilian model is a bundle of sensuality and charm, he can easily have any female swooning on her feet just by putting up an appearance. His distinctive feature is his athletic chiseled build; he stands at a height of 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) and weighs a commensurate 77 kg in body mass. The summary of his body measurements is 38-32-14 inches; broken down as 38 inches for chest, 32 inches for his waist, and 14 inches for biceps. Marlon wears a shoe size of 11 (US) and his silky dark brown hair and hazel eyes are some of the things that have contributed to his attractiveness.

Is Marlon Teixeira Gay?

Marlon’s sexual orientation is very clear, he is surely straight. Although he does not seem to be in any relationship with the opposite sex at the moment, he has had his share of love and failed relationships in the past. In 2013, he dated Samantha Gradoville, their relationship survived for a few months before it crashed the next year (in 2014). That same year, Bruna Marquezine came on board but just like Samantha, she was just a fleeting love interest; the affair came to an end in 2015. A few months later, Eugenia Suarez came into his life but from all indications, that relationship also fizzled out.

Presently, there isn’t any indication of any marriage for Marlon Teixeira. Likewise, no record of kids from his past relationship exists. We can only affirm that a dude who has gone through some active relationships with three nubile women is most likely not gay. To further confirm his sexual inclinations, recent rumors are pointing to the fact that Marlon might have commenced a romantic dalliance with Cheyenne Tozzi.


His Parents and Family

We have been able to identify Marlon’s biological father as Luiz Alberto who passed-on when the young model was still in his formative years. His mother Claudia Regina Teixeira brought him up with the help of his step-father Delfim Mario de Padua Peixoto Neto whom she got married to after the death of her first husband.

The details of his family background are currently not available neither is there a record of any half-siblings from his mother’s second marriage.
