Husband of Luxembourg’s gay prime minister joins NATO spouse photo

Gauthier Destenay, the husband of Luxembourg’s prime minister Xavier Bettel, caused a buzz on social media when he appeared alongside other spouses of world leaders at the NATO summit in Brussels.

Destenay was notably the only male in the group as he posed for a picture with the rest of the women smiling from ear to ear.

He and Bettel had been in a civil partnership when Bettel became prime minister in 2013. The pair was married in 2015 when same-sex marriage became legal in Luxembourg.

Destenay appeared next to First Lady Melania Trump, First Lady of France Brigitte Macron, First Lady of Turkey Emine Gulbaran Erdogan, Queen Mathilde of Belgium, Ingrid Schulerud, Desislava Radeva, Amelie Derbaudrenghien, Mojca Stropnik and First Lady of Iceland Thora Margret Baldvinsdottir.

Watch the spouses line up for the photo below.

  • I wonder what the wife from Turkey was thinking?

  • Arshad Sherif, M.A., M.Ed.

    He very likely did Melania in the butt. Melania gets a lot of attention, but in all honesty she is not all that feminine. She is actually quite masculine. She would certainly appeal to a gay man. And she is certainly up to the challenge: Can she make a gay man climax inside her butt? Surely out of all the first ladies, she was the one chosen by this gay man of Luxembourg. Surely he will want to tell everyone that he experienced Melania. And that he experienced Melania in a uniquely gay fashion. Will this be the story that brings down the Trump Presidency?

    • Your comment came out of the proverbial “left field”. You have a very twisted mind, but in a uniquely entertaining sort of way. My first thought before reading the caption was “whose the guy?” After reading the caption and article I was very pleased for him to be included in the photo as the spouse of a sitting Prime Minister. I saw nothing sexual in the picture, just a great group shot of 2017 and pride. I must congratulate you for your courage using social media for “your” coming out process.
