Axelle Francine Biography (Age and Ethnicity)
Little is known about the childhood of Axelle Francine. Not until recently, her date of birth was even under speculation. As a result of recent findings, we now know that Axelle Francine was born on the 20th of April 1982 in France. However, her exact birthplace is very much unknown. She is a French citizen with mixed ethnicity – French and English.
There isn’t any information regarding her parents or siblings. Also, there is literally nothing known to the media concerning her early educational background. According to various online sources, she is a holder of a Master’s Degree in the field of Journalism and Communication – a degree which she bagged from an institution best known to her. Before moving to the United States, she worked as an underground journalist and reporter who covered a series of reports on diverse issues in her home country – France. However, the name of the network which she worked for is very much unknown to the media. But with a staggering net worth of around $2 million, we can deduce some truth from this, given the fact that an average journalist in France earns an annual salary of €45,632 aside other remunerations.
Currently, she is known to be a housewife, a decision she took so as to create enough time for her kids and her loving Husband.
Her Husband and Children
Truth be told, we can’t talk about Axelle Francine without the mention of her husband – Tony Parker. Her husband Tony is a French professional basketball player who plays for Charlotte Hornets, he was born on the 17th of May 1982.
It is said that the couple first crossed paths in 2011 in Paris, France; a year after Parker and his ex-wife Eva Longoria got divorced. Soon after their initial meeting, they became great friends, going on several dates before Parker eventually asked her out. That was the start of a beautiful relationship between the pair; they courted for two years before they eventually decided to get engaged in 2013.
Parker made news about their engagement available to the media through a simple tweet which sparked lots of interest among fans, leading to their clamour for a wedding as soon as possible. The wedding eventually came on the 2nd of August 2014 with the couple tying the knot at Cowboy Dancehall in San Antonio. The wedding ceremony, to the surprise of many, was a little low-key, with only family members and some selected friends in attendance. It is quite important to note that their wedding held on the same weekend Parker penned his signature to a 3-year contract worth $43.3million with the San Antonio Spurs.
On the 30th of April 2014, their union was blessed by the birth of their first son whom they named Josh. For a long time, the couple kept basking in the joie de vivre rising from the birth of their first child. Four years after, the couple announced the birth of their second son, Liam. He was birthed on the 29th day of July 2018. This time, even four-year-old Josh Parker was exhilarated by the arrival of another family member; a brother and a new playmate.
As of the time of this post, there is no news of an impending breakup or bad blood in their relationship. They seem to be enjoying every bit of their married life, with their love for each other waxing stronger by the day.
