Christophe Dechavanne is the proud father of three daughters he adores. He is particularly fond of her youngest daughter, Ninon, because she raised her alone. After her mother left, Ninon could count on the omnipresence of her father.

Christophe Dechavanne is a well-known animator in France. For several years he has filled audiences with his natural talent for television. He is also good at being a father. Christophe, in fact, has three children whom he bathes with love and affection. He knew several women, but was particularly marked by his relationship with Ninon’s mother.

The latter left him, thus abandoning him with Ninon when she was still a girl.

“She is fantastic, she is a wonderful girl. She still has some difficult things to fix, because I raised her alone from the age of 8 (…) Her mother is not dead but she sees very little. Now it is their problem, it is almost an adult, in any case she is an adult “.

said in the “50 minutes Inside” show on TF1.

For her part, Ninon is now an adult woman. She chose to become an actress, although she doesn’t necessarily like her father:

“My father doesn’t want me to be an actress, but that’s my calling”,

he said.

Referring to his relationship with his mother, Ninon confided:

“My mother, I haven’t seen her for many years. My father has raised me alone since I was eight (…) Now I see her every now and then. I don’t want to repent later and tell me that I was wrong to interrupt the dialogue. step back from what may have happened in the past in our lives to get to this point. “

“Sometimes I was very damaged. But it probably strengthened me. At some point in my life, I always needed to be in love.”

After all these sentimental failures, the producer had decided to take a long hiatus. He devoted himself exclusively to the education of his children and his professional career.

His daughter is very grateful to him:

“He devoted himself completely to me, playing the role of father and mother, which is very difficult for a father over forty. I think it is the greatest gift he has given me, taking the time he took to take care of me from A to Z “,

he confided.

“This is the first time in my life that I have waited for the woman I live with to be available to see her. It was a bit the opposite in my old life. I am with the one I am going to die with … But as late as possible. If so. allow. “

Finally, Christophe Dechavanne is lucky enough to be a grandfather. His eldest daughter, Pauline, has a granddaughter named Jeanne. The producer shared his happiness at being a grandfather:

“It gives a lot of pleasure, happiness (…) It gives us even more opportunities to see my eldest daughter. This little boy is also adorable, which does not spoil anything. Ninon, his sister, sees them very often. He is very cute to me. , because some of my friends give gifts for the little one. “
