Gaspard Ulliel's Longterm Partner, Gaëlle Piétri

Gaëlle was discovered as a model in Corsica, France, and quickly moved to Paris. In 2004, she signed with Elite International and began working for several brands. Unfortunately, she had to drop out of college because she was traveling full-time for work.

The talented beauty has been featured in several fashion magazines and has done television ads for Dim, Diesel, Carte Noire Coffee, and Bourjois. She was involved in the modeling industry for 15 years and eventually met Gaspard.

They started dating in 2013 and were in a long-term relationship, although they were never officially married. Still, they welcomed their son, Orso, on November 9, 2015, but they revealed his name to the public several months later.

Gaëlle Piétri Wrote a Book in Gaspard Ulliel's Honor

In 2023, the model published a book in his honor titled "Le Temps de te dire Adieu," which translates to "Time to say goodbye." She wrote about remembering the incredible joy during the worst times in the book. She called Gaspard the "most beautiful trip" and added:

"Your presence and your absence converge in my heart. I now know that I can always find you within me. This is up to us."

The couple separated four years after the birth of their son, and it felt like a "death" to Gaëlle, but after his passing, she realized how different it was. The model explained:

"The first time, I felt like a death at the separation. Finally, this separation was like a preparation for his death because it was extremely violent. But indeed, when you really experience mourning, you realize that it had absolutely nothing to do with a death. Even if I was collapsed at the separation, there is only death that really cuts life in two."

Their Son Used to Ski with His Father

Gaspard Ulliel, who worked with actors like Oscar Isaac, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin McKidd, and Ethan Hawke, was only 37 when he was rushed to the hospital after sustaining a head injury during an accident at La Rosière ski resort in Savoie, an Alpine department of France.

Gaëlle had posted a video on Instagram of their son skiing on his sixth birthday just a few days before the incident, prompting many condolence messages from fans and followers worldwide.

Despite being separated, the model constantly posted about Gaspard and her son. In March 2020, she added a black and white picture with the caption, "True, Pure & Unconditional LOVE." In most of those posts, Gaëlle calls her son "Amour de ma vie" or "the love of my life."
