Elin Nordegren's first appearance since sealing her multi-million dollar divorce from Tiger Woods appeared to emphasise her insistence on moving forward with her head held high.
As she took her children, Sam, three, and Charlie, eighteen months, to the doctor, the former model and nanny even attempted a smile for waiting cameras.
The young mum did, however, carry both kids from the car into the surgery in Orlando, Florida herself - making two trips to do so.
Her protective attitude is in keeping with the estranged pair's dignified joint statement following this week's court hearing.
At the hearing the 30–year-old reportedly accepted a lower settlement than expected of the golfer's fortune.
She apparently did so in order to avoid being bound by a confidentiality clause over their marriage.
According to the Sun, Elin filmed an interview at their former marital home last week.
"She won't really dish the dirt.
"(But) she wanted to show she will not be silenced," the paper quoted a source as saying.
