Containment has not been easy for thousands of French people. Especially for Benjamin Biolay. Like many, the singer-songwriter had to put some of his projects on stand-by. He also spent this period with his eldest daughter Anna, born from his past relationship with Chiara Mastroianni. But his younger daughter who lives in South America was not by his side. A difficult situation to accept. “I lived through difficult times. Of course, with my family, with my grown-up daughter, but stuck in Paris, far from the house where I like to stay, near Sète”, he confessed to “Days of France”. “Far from my little girl, who lives in Argentina. And absolutely amazed at what we were going through. I still wonder about those who claimed to have loved this moment. I hated it.”
“I was a little lax with them”
Very secret about his offspring, Benjamin Biolay nevertheless assured that his two children had, like him, the artistic fiber. A sensitivity that could be linked to their environment. But also to their education. “With my own experience, I was a little lax with them,” said the interpreter of “How is your grief”. “I’m not sure if I should regret it or not. But in the end, they almost spontaneously did.” It was not until 2020 that the singer confessed to being the father of a second daughter who lives to this day in Buenos Aires. Unpack everything on social networks? Very little for him. “I also wanted to prove that we could protect his privacy,” he delivered for “Paris Match”. “If we don’t post photos of the delivery table on Instagram, nobody knows.” To live happy, live hidden !
