A former Premier League defender is now overshadowed by his model daughter – who has more than five million Instagram followers having once been dubbed the ‘most beautiful girl in world’.
Thylane Blondeau is the child of former Watford and Sheffield Wednesday defender Patrick Blondeau, who appeared in the English top flight back in 1997/98, and actress and television presenter Veronika Loubry.
Born in Aix-en-Provence, France in 2011, she was became well known after being dubbed the ‘most beautiful girl in world’ at the age of six, having began her modelling career at just four with famous French designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
Since that fashion show, Thylane has worked with Dolce & Gabbana, Vogue, L’Oreal, and even founded her own brand in 2018 named Heaven May.
Thylane then went on to land top spot in the ‘Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018’, after which she wrote on Instagram: “I just can’t believe it myself, thanks so much.”
Now 21, Thylane has built up a huge Instagram following of 5.3million followers, most recently posing in Monte-Carlo last month.
