Well-deserved rest for champions Marion Rousse and Julian Alaphilippe who, after a busy season, are finally enjoying a family vacation. Their one-year-old son, little Nino, is thrilled!
In 2020, the former professional cyclist Marion Rousse and the French racing cyclist, member of the Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl team, Julian Alaphilippe , formalized their relationship. And since then, it's crazy love. The champion and the current president of the Tour de France Women even welcomed their first child, a little boy by the sweet name of Nino, on June 14, 2021. A toddler that they do not hesitate to highlight on their respective social networks.
Once is not custom, the 30-year-old, now a sports consultant for France.tv Sport, shared tender photos of her son to her 311,000 Instagram followers on August 7 . Seven family snapshots that show that now that the Women's Tour de France is over (it ended on July 31), she can finally fully enjoy her little family, and more particularly the one she has renamed her 'little nugget of love' . And according to the images broadcast by the new mother, the little blond head of the couple of cyclists is having fun at the beach. This is what therefore fails to melt the aficionados of the couple, and which is reminiscent of the speech of Marion Rousse last May in the columns of Paris Match .
Indeed, in an interview with the magazine in May 2022, the former runner returned with an open heart to her new role as a mother and to motherhood in general. ' She (maternity, editor's note) puts priorities back in their proper place . But in the work, I learned to distance myself from what is incidental and what is necessary. It makes me stronger and more efficient.' , she confided.
Although his couple is publicized, she explained that they aspired to lead a life away from rhinestones and glitter for their son . “Julian and I want Nino to have the most normal life of a little boy possible” .
The relationship between the French runner and his one-year-old son is touching: “He always photographs him with his comforter before leaving to have him everywhere with him. He needs him. The emotions he shares with his son allow him to fight at the right time ' , she had declared to our colleagues from Paris Match .
