A seasoned literature teacher, he is married with three children.
As her student and crush, he won her heart and became the President of France in 2017.
In one of her rare interviews, Brigitte Macron (70) told the magazine “ Paris competition“Now we have rare insights into her life with Emmanuel (45).
They are scenes of impossible love.
He was her literature teacher in Amiens (pop. 130,000), and her daughter was in his class. What a scandal when this affair was discovered at a Catholic school. “My head was confused,” says Brigitte Macron. His parents sent Emmanuel to Paris. “I said to myself: He will surely love the younger one!”
He didn’t do that. They became a couple. Against all odds.
The first lady says she waited ten years to marry him. “Time to get my kids on track. I had to take this time to not ruin her life. You can imagine what they heard.
But Brigitte Macron is almost apologetic, saying, “I don’t want to lose my life either.”
Married in 2007, ten years later they moved into the Elysee Palace.
They have breakfast together every morning and the president is always in a good mood and he loves boiled eggs. Breakfast, says Madame Macron, is sacred to them: “If we have something to discuss, it’s not in the morning.”
It’s often late in the evening: “If he has something to do, he gets it done.” He has trouble sleeping and only sleeps a little overall, but he does sleep during the day.
Brigitte Macron insists they are a “perfectly normal couple”. “In the 27 years I’ve known him, there hasn’t been a day where he hasn’t surprised me. I had many excellent students. But not his talent. I have always admired him.
She sounds 17, not 70.
