Brigitte admitted that being a mother was ‘difficult’ and said protecting children should mean more support for mothers.
The seven-year-old grandmother had three children during her first marriage, which lasted from 1974 to 2006.
Her firstborn, Sébastien, is now 45, an engineer and vice president of a polling station.
Brigitte has also had two daughters: Laurence Auzière-Jourdan, a cardiologist, and Tiphaine Auzière, a lawyer, who used to be in the same class as Emmanuel Macron in high school.
Emmanuel and Brigitte proposed a year in his presidency in 2018. The couple married in 2007, one year after Brigitte finalized her divorce from her first husband.
The couple, who met when Macron was just 15 and Brigitte 39, share an atypical romance to say the least.
The pair met in high school, with Macron, the brilliant student, who quickly and hard fell for the passionate literature teacher. The two grew closely, especially after Macron, then 16, joined the school’s drama club – managed by none other than Brigitte.
As news began to spread of a blossoming romance between the mother of three and the teenager, it was said that Macron had been sent to Paris by his parents to create some distance between Brigitte and him.
Her parents – both doctors – were treated “as if they had the plague,” people spat on the door, and letters were sent denouncing their daughter.
But the attraction between the pair was too strong to ignore, and a passionate one eventually developed – though the pair denied that anything romantic happened before Macron was old enough.
The couple finally married in 2007, a year after Brigitte’s divorce from her first husband André.
