Chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, 55, has a new baby on the way
The popular TV personality and author, who has two young sons with his fiancee Michelle Kennedy, told Hello! magazine they are expecting a baby boy in September.
Jean-Christophe, father to a 30-year-old daughter from a previous marriage, said he has no qualms about being an older father.
“When the new baby is 20, I will be 75, but I don’t see it that way. Age is just a number at the end of the day.”
He added: “If I compare myself to a good wine or a cheese, it’s very true that the older you get, the better you are.”
During the exclusive interview and photo-shoot at the family’s holiday home in the Austrian Alps, he also spoke about the family’s health regime.
“I lead a much healthier life now. We are very active and I go for a run with my son Jean every morning. Michelle and I don’t smoke, we don’t drink and we do a lot of sport. There is a lot of happiness, which I think is essential in life.”
On the subject of family, he said: “I have always loved the idea of having three boys. I don’t know why, it’s what I’ve always wanted.”
