Dad hen but discreet, Gaspard Ulliel saw his life turned upside down at the birth of his son, Orso. For his fifth birthday, his companion shared a heartbreaking video of the boy.

If he did not like to talk about his son, his companion had nevertheless published an adorable video for Orso’s 5th birthday.

“5 YEARS. Wishing you a life full of happiness… Forever soft, cool and fun like this mini wave. Happy birthday #love of my life #orso”, wrote the model, in the caption of a video where their son was surfing. Since the death of Gaspard Ulliel, Gaëlle Pietri has not spoken. The comedian’s colleagues are responsible for paying tribute to the one who has been doubly Caesarized. “He was humble, he was simple, we felt that this (his acting career, editor’s note) was not the main thing for him either. The main thing was in life, in his little guy, confided in particular Richard Berry on the antenna of BFMTV this Tuesday, January 25. (…) It was a simple family life, he was a… simple type. Here.”
