People and royalty
For the first time, Laeticia Hallyday shared a photo in Saint-Barth on which her daughters and her new companion Jalil Lespert pose together.
It’s a wonderful blended family that was formed under the Saint-Barthélemy sun. Laeticia Hallyday celebrated Christmas with her companion Jalil Lespert and her two daughters, Jade (16 years old) and Joy (12 years old).

Six years later, he won the César for Most Promising Actor for his role in Human ressources from the same Cantet. This time, it’s a career that starts: The walker of the Champ-de-Mars, Don’t tell anyone…
But the Franco-Kabyle actor is ambitious, impatient, and above all full of projects. He learns to handle the camera, co-writes stories. Success comes with his film on Yves Saint Laurent, in 2014. A great success, stimulated by competition from the “Saint Laurent” signed Bertrand Bonello, and by the vituperations of Pierre Bergé.
