[Z]aan Tafel gala

The April 5th edition of Story magazine featured an article about Chimène. The TV presenter explained that her 20-year-old son Lyam supported her when she got breast cancer for the third time. After her remission in late 2021, her father and mother passed away. "During this terrible time, Lyam was a great support to me. He had already left home, but I could always count on him," she said.

Shortly after Lyam's birth in 2003, Chimène's relationship with the billionaire Laurens Last, the father of her son, ended. There was any contact with Laurens for years, but now father and son have built up a bond. “Currently, Lyam spends a lot of time with his dad. I miss him, but also my parents. Now I'm on my own,” the multi-talented lady added.
