After he was done, he was spotted giving Helle a quick peck on the cheek and kissing Michelle’s hand — such a romantic gentleman! We’re sure that he was just trying to stay positive during a hard time.
Plus, we know that they have an amazing marriage — he even said that he gets “dizzy” sometimes looking at her!
“Sometimes, when we’re lying together, I look at her and I feel dizzy with the realization that here is another distinct person from me, who has memories, origins, thoughts, feelings that are different from my own,” he said in an interview. “That tension between familiarity and mystery meshes something strong between us. Even if one builds a life together based on trust, attentiveness and mutual support, I think that’s it’s important that a partner continues to surprise.”
