Few details are known about Ri Sol-ju, the woman who in 2012 was identified as the wife of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un .
Ri is thought to be 28 now and a mother to three children, according to South Korean intelligence reports. The Hermit Kingdom’s secretive government, however, has not confirmed that information.
