Pinault shares his oldest two children with ex Dorothée Lepère, to whom he was married from 1996 to 2004. He shares son Augustin James with model Linda Evangelista. Hayek has become a loving stepmother to her three stepchildren, telling Red in 2017, "I always wanted to have a lot of children, and I was not able to. My body, as a miracle, had one." The actress continued, "The huge blessing I've had is that my husband has three other children. So I have four. And they are all so different."
