Nelson and Claudia Heffner 

The Trian Fund Management founder, who is worth an estimated $1.6 billion (£1.3 billion) has been married to his third wife for 35 years and the couple share eight kids together, while he has two other children with his first spouse Cynthia Abrams.

Nelson and Claudia reside in a 27 bedroom mansion in Bedford, which is a favourite among celebrities such as Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Bruce Willis.   

The New Yorker is a self-made man with a fearsome reputation as a tough-minded corporate raider, and boasts two jets.

He dropped out of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 1962 and instead built his family’s tiny frozen-food business in Brooklyn into the largest frozen food distributor in the north east.

From there, he assembled the biggest packaging company in the world, Triangle Industries, which was sold in 1989 netting him around $840 million (£667 million).

The tycoon is a long-term supporter of Donald Trump — they have been neighbours for decades in Florida and he even held a $590,000 (£470,000)-per-couple fundraiser for the US President. 

Blonde beauty Claudia was previously a model and is known for her diamonds and philanthropy, with the power couple creating their independent company Nelson and Claudia Peltz Family Foundation in 2011.

Matthew Peltz 

Matthew, 36, is arguably the most business savvy sibling out of the Peltz clan as he’s served as a partner and senior analyst at his father’s investment management firm.

He’s been a director at Wendy’s Co. since 2015 and is also a board member for New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). 

The Yale University graduate, who is said to be worth $884 million (£703 million), recently splurged out by purchasing a waterfront mansion in Palm Beach County for $10.5million (£8.3 million), complete with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a massage room and a swimming pool.

Will Peltz 

Nicola also has a famous sibling in the form of brother Will, 34, who played hockey in his youth before becoming an actor.

The screen star moved from the Big Apple to Los Angeles in 2009 and bagged his first minor roles in a series of film productions.

In 2015, he portrayed the role of Adam Sewell in horror film Unfriended, and played Brandon Lender in comedy-drama Men, Women & Children a year earlier, which starred the likes of Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler and Ansel Elgort.

Zachary and Gregory Peltz

Nicola’s twin brothers, Zachary and Gregory, 17, hit headlines in May 2016 when Nelson spent a reported $2million (£1.6million) on their bar mitzvah. 

The lavish event was attended by hundreds of guests — including Madison Square Garden executive chairman James Dolan — and saw stilt-walkers, two bands, five singers, a hockey rink, a basketball hoop and video games provide entertainment.  

According to their respective Instagram accounts, the teens share the same love of ice hockey with their older siblings.

Brooklyn and Nicola publicly announced that were engaged on Saturday, taking to Instagram to share the news with fans, leading to a string of congratulatory reposts from Brooklyn’s close-knit family.

Soon after their announcement, alleged details emerged of their upcoming nuptials, which are said to be costing £4 million. 

Nelson is reportedly paying for the wedding with Brooklyn’s parents Victoria and David also wanting to ‘contribute’.

The ceremonies are said to be taking place in both the UK and Florida with the couple allegedly expected to sign pre-nups at the behest of Nicola’s father.

Brooklyn’s little sister, Harper, nine, will reportedly be ‘chief bridesmaid’ and his brothers Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, acting as his ‘ushers’.   

A source told The Sun: ‘Everyone is delighted for them. Brooklyn has always looked up to his parents and grandparents, who have been married for a combined 70 years, and that’s what he wants. 

‘David and Victoria are thrilled. They feel he has finally met a girl who is not after him for fame or money. In fact, her family wealth dwarfs the Beckhams.’ 

They added: ‘It’s too early to set a date, but they’re aiming for the end of next summer or early autumn.’
