Linda Evangelista has always kept mum on who the father of 4-year-old son Augustin James is. The NY Post reveals it is French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, the husband of Salma Hayek and father to their 3-year-old daughter Valentina.
The model, who has said “Augie’s” father was a New York architect, attended Family Court in Manhattan yesterday to try to hash out a support agreement with Pinault. According to his lawyer, he didn’t attend due to a misunderstanding.
“We had understood that it was to be a brief, telephone conference, to bring Magistrate Troy up to date on what the status was,” he explained to The Post.
Pinault and Hayek met in Venice in May of 2006 and announced their engagement and her pregnancy in March of 2007. Publicly, they have never acknowledged Augustin as the businessman’s son.
