After an 18-year public marriage, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau unexpectedly announced their separation on Instagram.
Gregoire Trudeau, 48, and Trudeau, 51, wed in May 2005. When Trudeau was elected prime minister ten years later, the well-groomed pair found themselves in the international media’s limelight.
Prior to entering politics, Trudeau worked as a teacher. His father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, served as Canada’s prime minister for 15 years.
Former entertainment journalist Gregoire Trudeau had known Trudeau since they were young. Xavier, 15, Ella Grace, 14, and Hadrien, 9, are their three children.
Their marriage has had its ups and downs throughout the years, but they frequently showed their love and unity in front of others, particularly on special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries.
