Congratulations to Brigitte Trogenux, France’s new First Lady. Her husband, Emmanuel Macron was elected President of France.
Ms. Trogneux is 64 and her husband is 39. She was Macron’s French teacher and Drama Coach while he was in high school. “It seems like it was love at first sight,” reports The Local, a French publication. “It’s understood the pair used to have long discussions together-and she would read his writing out to the class. She used to recite his work all the time. She was totally captivated by his writing skills. A whole new level of “teacher’s pet.”
Ms. Trogneux campaigned throughout France for her husband, taking a leave from her teaching job. It is expected that she will be one of his most trusted advisors in the Elysee Palace.
The 2017 Cougar Ball is dedicated to Ms. Trogneux, now the world’s foremost cougar!
