Brittny Gastineau finally met her half-brother Kilian Marcus Gastineau from her father’s relationship with Brigitte Nielsen. Read more on Killian Marcus Gastineau below.
Mark Gastineau, former New York Jets player, left Brittny’s mom Lisa for actress Brigitte Nielsen, and Brittny recently had a chance to meet her half-brother Killian, 20.
Brittny said she had heard rumors but had never met her half-brother, Killian Marcus Gastineau.
Killian lives in Italy and works at a wine and champagne company. “I’ve always known I have a half-brother, I was told as a kid, but he was totally off the radar. It was like he didn’t exist,” Brittny said.
Brittny’s mother Lisa ran into Brigitte at Ivana Trump’s wedding last year, and they exchanged phone numbers. Last week Brigitte “texted my mom and said Marcus is in town and he’d love to meet me,” says Brittny.
Brittny and Lisa met up with Nielsen and her husband Mattia Dessi, along with Marcus, for dinner at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills.
“It was very weird and surreal,” says Brittny, who hasn’t seen her father for several years. “I didn’t cry. I’m too tough to cry. But we hugged, we talked about old stories. He said he watched Gastineau Girls in Italy, so he knew what I looked like.”
“I asked him a million questions, but he doesn’t speak English. He’s really cute. He’s like 6′,5″, blonde. He looks exactly like Brigitte.”
She added: “Marcus also met dad for the first time a few days before he met me. He said it went well. I have no relationship with my father.”
Brittny was surprised her mother Lisa was supportive over the reunion. “It was very emotional for my mom,” she says. “I mean, my dad left her for Brigitte, and she had a baby with him, but she was so supportive. She wanted me to meet Marcus.”
Brittny reveals, “It’s kind of hard to know someone in just one dinner, so I’m definitely going to stay in touch with him. But I’m going to have to learn Italian!”
