The legendary actor lived for 88 years. Jean-Paul Belmondo is survived by two daughters, a son and numerous grandchildren.
The legendary Frenchman with piercing eyes and a charming smile had many novels. However, he had only two official marriages. All of his four children appeared in them. He did not recognize others.
The first wife of Jean-Paul was a graduate of the ballet school Elodie Constantin. For 13 years of marriage with the dancer Belmondo, from an inexperienced student, he turned into a successful and sought-after actor. Elodie gave birth to three children from him - daughters Patricia and Florence, as well as a son, Paul.
Ballerina Natty Tardivel became the second darling of the star of the film "Professional". She gave birth to his daughter Stella.
She was born in 1953. She is the only one of Jean-Paul's heirs who consciously decided to link her life with cinema. Patricia tried herself as a screenwriter. Three films were made based on her work. She could have continued her career, but her life was tragically cut short. The woman died in a fire in her Paris apartment in 1993. She was only 40 years old. The loss became an ordeal for the artist. It was then that Belmondo developed his first heart problems.
The most mysterious of the actor's children was born in 1960. Florence firmly decided that she would not follow in her father's footsteps. Since childhood, she avoided publicity. The artist's daughter gave preference to the exact sciences. Belmondo married a scientist from the United States, for whom she left France. In recent years, the artist's daughter was rarely at home and rarely talked to her father. She does not give interviews. The grandchildren of the French artist are growing up in America. Florence has a daughter, Anabelle, as well as sons Christopher and Nicholas.
Jean-Paul's son was born in 1963. He inherited the charisma of his stellar father and even starred in the films "Minion of Fate", "Les Miserables" and others. Simultaneously with attempts to realize himself in the cinema, the guy became interested in auto racing, where he achieved great success. From the age of 16, he took part in competitions, won prizes and became a Formula 1 pilot.
Belmondo Jr. met with Princess Stephanie of Monaco, but their romance was destroyed by the heir of another famous Frenchman - the son of Alain Delon. In 1990, Paul married a girl named Luana. The couple raised three sons - Alessandro, Victor and Giacomo. In 2015, the actor's son starred in a hundred-minute documentary interview about his father's life and work - Belmondo par Belmondo.
The youngest and most beloved daughter of the artist was born in 2003, a year after his wedding to Natty. Star dad at that time was 70 years old. Belated paternity resulted in Jean-Paul's special tenderness and care for his daughter. With the ballerina Belmondo broke up in 2008, when the girl was five years old. However, all these years, he continued to tenderly care for her and maintain a close relationship.
The girl chose to follow in her mother's footsteps. She is in ballet school, graduated from college. At the time of the death of the legendary father, she was 18 years old. According to Tardivel, her daughter has choreographic skills, but she does not aspire to become a professional ballerina. Stella has not yet decided on a profession. It is possible that the girl still decides to try herself in acting. Young Belmondo has the necessary external data for this in abundance.
