Family

Vanessa Paradis has been in a relationship with American actor Johnny Depp since 1998. Paradis says: "We met in 1994 at a mutual friend's house. He made a big impression on me and during my years of solitude, he never left my thoughts. Then, in 1998, we met again. Three months later, we decided to spend our lives together". In 1998 Johnny was working on "The Ninth Gate", filmed in France. In an interview, Johnny shares: "'It was love at first sight," Johnny Depp says of that night in 1998 when he saw his girlfriend-to-be, Vanessa Paradis, out on the town in Paris. "I was in the lobby of this restaurant and I just saw this back across the room, suddenly, the back turned and looked at me. And then the eyes that were attached to the back walked toward me and said, 'Hi. Do you remember me?' "I said yes, but I didn't remember because we had actually met a number of years before. But this time, I was caught."

They have a daughter, Lily-Rose Melody Depp (born 27 May 1999), and a son, John Christopher "Jack" Depp III (born 9 April 2002).

They divide their time between houses in the Hollywood Hills, their farm in the South of France, a house in the Somerset village Timsbury, and also own apartments in Paris, Manhattan and an island in the Bahamas. Paradis' 2000 album Bliss, another French chart topper, was dedicated to Depp and their daughter.

Vanessa Paradis also has a younger sister actress Alysson Paradis. They are ten years apart. While Vanessa likes singing Alysson has starred in many horror films, usually in French.
