The patriarch of a large blended family. Dany Boon is a leading face of French cinema who is very popular with the public. Admired by millions of fans throughout his career, he has also shared the lives of several women and experienced the joys of fatherhood.

In a relationship with actress Sophie Hermelin, actor Dany Boon became a father for the first time with the birth of his son Mehdi on August 25, 1997. After their separation, he dated actress Judith Godrèche, who gave him a second son, Noé, born September 4, 1999. And it is with his ex-wife Yaël Harris that he welcomes his three youngest children: Eytan, born June 23, 2005, Elia, born December 20, 2006, and his only daughter Sarah, born February 27, 2010.

A huge family that the famous humorist and great friend of Line Renaud rarely exhibits in public, except on special occasions. Like the day when Dany Boon was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor, in the presence of his family in front of President Nicolas Sarkozy. Or during the matches of the French football team where the actor is often accompanied by his sons.

Faced with such media exposure, the celebrity of Dany Boon has brought some trouble to those close to him. And, in particular, in 2008, after the colossal success of his film Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis. “My son who is 23 today (Noé, editor’s note), we had to change schools three times in the year following the release of the Ch’tis”, he confided this Thursday 15 September on France Inter by detailing. “Because he was pissed off.” Born of his relationship with Judith Godrèche, the actor’s son “was attacked … sometimes even by the teachers. It was complicated”. And, to conclude. “He went back to the high school where he was before”.

If the troubles are now behind them, the companion of Laurence Arné is a caring father for his children. The latter, more or less present on social networks, are the pride of the actor. His second son Noé thrives in music between France and the United States while his third son Eytan is a young influencer. And, the mother of her two youngest is sharing snaps with them on Instagram.
