Aww that’s sooo cute. I had a feeling he would have a girl. But I’m sure his wife is Nicole Merry (a model)! She has a blog that she updates:

Hmm I don’t know. Anyway congratulations to Thierry & wife 🙂

Yep, his wife is not called Claire it is infact British model Nicole Merry.

What a cute wee girl that will be, can’t wait to see pics. Cute name too!

His wife is called Nicole, but that blog is not by Nicole – it’s by somebody pretending to be her. She’s a model and they met while making a commercial for Renault Clio. I guess he thought she was vavavoom…

And this is not his vvife’s blog. It’s a blog made by a girl vvho is a fan of nicole/claire
