It is a bereavement that the host has experienced in all discretion. Since 1975, the flagship presenter of France Télévisions, William Leymergie, had been married to his wife, a sculptress named Marlyne Robin. From this union, the couple became parents of three children: Géry, Sacha and Anna.
A beautiful love story that began with love at first sight during a dinner in 1975, as William Leymergie explained in an interview with Paris Match. “I remember it like it was yesterday. I was at the table, Mary arrived on my left. When I saw this magnificent brunette with blue eyes, very discreet, who exuded intelligence, approach from me, I understood that she was the chance of my life. A gift of this size, it only happens once”.
Although love at first sight is not mutual at the beginning of their story, the young woman finally falls under his spell over time. After more than 30 years of love, the ex-presenter of Télématin, has always remained very admiring of his wife. “I always want to impress her (…) What I like about Mary is that she puts everything into perspective. When I lose my mind, she immediately puts me back on track. […] She’s the woman every man dreams of having. I could write a 900-page book about her.”
Unfortunately, this romance, which had lasted for three decades, came to an abrupt end with the death of his wife in 2020, as relayed by Femme Actuelle according to information from France Dimanche in July 2021. “According to our information, Maryline would have died of a heart attack on June 25, 2020, and buried in the cemetery of Saint-Gatien-des-Bois, in Calvados”, wrote our colleagues. A disappearance that the host has never mentioned publicly.
