She said: "My sons are doing amazingly well… I'm very proud of them. I speak to them every day, there's Skype, I don't know what I would have done without it."

Brigitte also voiced her concerns for her children, who are in Milan, during the interview, which took place last March at the beginning of the pandemic.

She said: "It's hard for me as a mom to be on the other side of the planet. I said, 'You cannot come over for Easter.' Now they definitely cannot come over because of the entire lockdown."
