More exclusive scans from the past!

February 1980: Marlène Jobert had just found out that she was expecting twins and she was very excited about it! She said it was amazing to be pregnant with twins at 37. She said that very often only children always had problems but at the same time if she didn’t get pregnant with twins, she probably wouldn’t get pregnant a second time. She took a while before deciding to be a mother. Her fiance, Walter Green, wanted a child but she hesitated. And then, she went for it. She decided to “dive”. The former French actress said she was in the fresh water of serenity. She said her ideal would be to have a boy and a girl. She jokingly said she’d name them “Tristan and Isolde” or “Paul and Virginie”. But in fact she wasn’t worried about the gender of her babies. She already knew they were going to be non-identical though. Twins were quite common in the Jobert family! Marlène has non-identical twin sisters: Michèle and Christiane (they’re photographed together). And her maternal grandfather also had a twin brother! We can also see a very young Elsa with her aunt.

    I love that “Return to the past” serial, very exciting. LOL at the phone’s pic, I translate what Paris Match put on it : “Walter is as happy as Marlene : together, they’re announcing the good news to their friends”
    I hope they we’re not ordering a pizza 😆

    Tell us the secret: how do you find access to Paris Match archives Miss M? Or is it more magazines? Is 007 involved?

    The comment about Walter & Marlène playing chess is also funny : “Walter is an excellent chess player : he learns Marlène to play that subtle and relaxing game”
    I don’t know how Paris Match’s journalists play chess, but I don’t hear often people say it’s relaxing, rather tight and tiring for the brain. But if you move the pawns like toys, making them speak etc, I must agree that it’s very relaxing…
    For my part I would had put as comment to that picture : “Marlene is a great chess player. If she wasn’t an actress, she would had become a world chess champion, defeating at the same time Garry Kasparov”.
