Jamel Debbouze and Mélissa Theuriau continue to maintain the myth around their couple. If they never miss an opportunity to make a declaration of love through the media, they have on the other hand a golden rule: not to mention their two children and even less to reveal their faces. Indeed, lovers want to protect them. If they are both known: she as a journalist and he as a comedian, they want their children to be able to grow up in as normal a way as possible. To achieve this, the lovers share very few photos with their children and make sure to hide their faces.
Thus, on the couple’s social networks, we can only take a few pictures of their beautiful family. As a reminder, they are the happy parents of Léon, born in 2008, and Lila, born in 2011. All four form a united and close-knit family. If the faces of the two children are well hidden, Jamel Debbouze and Mélissa Theuriau have on the other hand left some clues about the silhouette of their children as well as their haircuts. Thus, it would seem that Leon has rather dark hair and of moderate length while his little sister has lighter and longer hair. Besides, she often has a duvet.
Mélissa Theuriau: “It’s a rule I don’t break!”
In the media, the couple makes sure to talk about their love story but very little about their children. In the columns of Gala, in 2019, the mother of the family had all the same made a departure from her rule. “I have two children, they are part of my life. It’s also part of what feeds me. There are times when I can afford to post a photo that touches me. On the other hand, I never show their face. It’s a rule I don’t break! But it’s without thinking. There’s no strategy. I always do it spontaneously.”
