Brittny Gastineau finally got to meet her half-brother, Killian Marcus Gastineau.Â The socialite and her mother, Lisa Gastineau met with Killian to have dinner in at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills.
Killian Marcus Gastineau is the son of Brigitte Nielsen.
Brittny and Killian Gastineau’s father is Mark Gastineau, the legendary New York Jets player.Â Mark left Brittny’s mom Lisa for actress Brigitte Nielsen over two decades ago.
Brittny Gastineau told People Magazine:
“I’ve always known I have a half-brother, I was told as a kid, but he was totally off the radar. It was like he didn’t exist.Â It was very weird and surreal,” says Brittny, who hasn’t been in touch with her father for several years. “I didn’t cry. I’m too tough to cry. But we hugged, we talked about old stories. He said he watched Gastineau Girls in Italy, so he knew what I looked like.” Brittny went on to say:Â “I asked him a million questions, but he doesn’t speak English. He’s really cute. He’s like 6′,5″, blonde. He looks exactly like Brigitte.”
Brittny claims that her mom Lisa is very supportive of her getting to know her half-brother.Â “It was very emotional for my mom,” she says. “I mean, my dad left her for Brigitte, and she had a baby with him, but she was so supportive. She wanted me to meet Marcus.”
