Have you stayed for a long time in France...How is your French?
Beaucoup mieux! (much better). I still have the worst french pronunciation on the world but    I´m doing my best to improve it. I can speak in so far, that i can understand my children, when they are speaking in French. I don´t want them to think that their father is a stupid man (laught).
Do you speak with Lily-Rose and Jack French?
Mostly I speak with them in English and my wife Vanessa in French. I think this is better, baceause we use our native language. But my 7 years old Lily is considerate of my French and she always praises me.
You´ve been with Vanessa for seven years....
Yep, she is th most lovely person i know. She has a goldne heart!
Was it a love at first sight?
Absolutely! I fell in love with her in that moment i saw her. I catched on that i can´t live without her in a short time. She teached me to look into world in a different sight – in a positive way.
You look like a very contended an happy person. Do you feel it the same?
Yes, I´m very happy. It even scares me, because when everything is so cool it´s mostly a presage, that something bad will happen. But due to my work I don´t have a time to worry about it. I just enjoy it!
