FIRST DATES star Fred Sirieix has fallen in love with himself – and is preparing to marry his partner, whom he affectionately calls Fruitcake in Jamaica.
Fred and Fruitcake got engaged in March 2020 after dating for two years and are now heading to the Caribbean for a tropical wedding.
The epidemic has forced the couple to remain “optimistic and positive” as they wait for fewer travel restrictions before concluding concrete plans.
“We want to keep everyone there and if we are flying I don’t want to put pressure on sanctions or anything like that,” he said. Okay fine.
The Frenchman admits he may get married in his hometown of Paris, but he is “quite ready for Jamaica”.
“I’m optimistic and positive, but I think the next hurdle will be next winter,” Fred explained.
“I think if we can get through next winter without a hitch, I think we have a good chance. We’re pretty confident about that.”
Fred also said that he was able to fulfill his new love in an unconventional way and that it was love at first sight.
“I was walking down the street, and we just started talking and drinking together – and that was it,” he said.
“We were in the right place. There was a kiss at the end.”
Fred is as calm about his deer as he is about the upcoming weddings.
“Yeah, it’s not that complicated. I just have to make a couple of phone calls and it’s done. It’s going to be an explosion, no doubt about it,” he said.
Fred is usually very private about his love life.
However, in July 2016, the Frenchman revealed that he had never been married before.
He added that the closest thing to marriage was his 12-year-old relationship with a woman who is popularly known as Alex, with whom he has two children.
They are Andrea, 16, and Lucien, 11, who play a vital role in her life.
Andrea is making a name for herself by winning a gold medal at the FINA Diving Grand Prix in the 10m Platform event, which helped her win the Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
Fred is so private that he never revealed the real name of the fruit cake, but he was sure to take it with him when he celebrated his 50th birthday in Paris last month.
He shares photos of his leisure trip on Instagram, standing on a balcony in the French capital, holding a ’50’ balloon with a smile on his face.
Fred posted another photo of himself taking a selfie with a fruit cake.
The Frenchman looked domineering in a gray polonic and navy bomber jacket, while the fruit cake shook the pink hoodie and some large sunglasses.
