“I have 2 or 3 nervous breakdowns a week”: Elodie Gossuin opens up like never before on the reality of her daily life as a mother of 4 children

No, it’s not Wonder Woman! Crowned Miss France in 2000, Elodie Gossuin made a brilliant and varied reconversion. Today, the beauty queen is a television presenter in the M6 ​​group. She hosts musical bonuses there like during the holiday season on M6, or Long live the campsite and The favorite holidays of the French on 6Ter, and sometimes we find it on France Télévisions, as for theJunior Eurovision in 2021. The former morning worker for RFM is also a woman with a huge heart: she is committed to Unicef ​​as well as many other associations. On the private side, the young woman is a mother of four children, two sets of twins: Rose and Julesborn in December 2007, and Leonard and Josephine, born in October 2013. Fusion with her pre-teens, Élodie Gossuin is a mother with whom dialogue is very open. “I encourage them to assert their character. I try to adapt to them according to what they need. We have other topics of conversation, we talk about everything, more freely, in a raw way. It’s great because it’s also our relationship that is built“, she explained to TV Star.

“I’m on average two or three nervous breakdowns a week”

With her very busy professional life, it happens to Élodie Gossuin to crack, as she had confided in our podcast parents first. ” I am never there to take my children to school, I very often feel guilty and very often question myself. Very often I want to change my life and move… I have had plenty of times when I cracked up. It happened to me the day before yesterday for example. It happens to me because I’m exhausted. I’ve learned to ask for help without feeling like it’s an admission of weakness.” she explained to us in December 2019. And this evening of January 12, 2023, Élodie Gossuin decided to speak on TikTok to reassure all people who think she is “Super Woman”. This is not the case. “I don’t know how you do it because it’s 8:15 p.m. I’ve just sent my children to the shower now, we haven’t eaten, there’s school tomorrow, I specify, it’s Thursday evening and it’s hell“, she begins. Before continuing: “I say this because I never do: I have an average of two or three nervous breakdowns a week, which is quite reasonable I think, and I get lots of messages telling me ‘yeah how do you always have a smile it’s super cool how you manage'”.

“It does not always go well and my children exhaust me”

Élodie Gossuin admits it: yes, she sometimes gets overwhelmed, like all moms. “The thing is, I never bother to send a little message, to share the moments when it’s actually hot, and it’s hot almost all the time and it bothers me sometimes to make you believe that everything is always fine because it is not always fine and that my children exhaust me and that there we did homework for 2 hours because no one wanted to do it and it lasted three hours and it was hell and it’s super complicated!”, she said, before continuing: “In the meantime, I’m bringing my big girl back to football [comme] almost every day of the week and we didn’t prepare food, we both went back and forth to Paris today, the TER was three quarters of an hour late and we went on and on doesn’t even have the fridge full anymore, we haven’t had time to do the shopping”, list the ex-beauty queen, a little outdated. “I wouldn’t want people to believe that I manage to manage everything and that everything is perfect and that we are organized very well and that everything is rosy every day. It’s complicated to want to do everything well, you can’t do everything well. No, I don’t manage thoroughly and well every day (…) I often think of others, of the messages I receive (…) I try to do the best“, concludes the courageous mother.
