- Your experience is particularly touching, can you tell us the story of your adoption?



My parents traveled a lot and, going off the beaten track, they witnessed the poverty of certain countries.

When they returned to France, my mother wondered about adopting a child in distress to save a life.

My father was more reserved because they were already 50 years old, but he ended up agreeing to start the adoption process.

In 1989, they came to pick me up in Brazil.

What do you know of your parents?

I never tried to find out anything about them or go looking for information.

My adoptive parents are my parents.

The only thing I know is that my name was Adriana when I was born.

But nothing to do with Karembeu, I'm brunette, I have tanned skin and I'm only 1.58 meters!


Have you had the opportunity to go to Brazil on the lands of your roots?

Yes, I went there in 2006. It was a trip that we all took together with my parents, my brother, my sister-in-law and my nephews.

When I arrived there, I really felt deep down that it was my country of origin.

“I have never had taboos about my adoption”

Anabel, candidate for season 7 of "Married at first sight"

When did your parents tell you about your story?

Around the age of 3 or 4 years.

I've never had any taboos about my adoption, I've always talked about it very openly.

My mother taught it to me very simply, telling it to me like a pretty story.

She carried me in her arms showing me a map of the world retracing the trip from France to pick me up in Brazil.

I always knew that my parents had not been able to keep me for lack of means.

Have you faced an identity crisis at some point in your life?

In my mind, everything has always been clear and simple.

I love my parents, they are everything to me.

The only thing that showed up was a fear of abandonment.

It's something that started at the time of the first loves in middle school and high school.

The fear of losing my friends or my boyfriend.

What did your romantic past look like before your participation in “Married at first sight”?

There have been ups and downs with relationships that have carried me forward and others that have been life lessons.

My biggest story is the one I lived with my daughter's dad.

He was my first love, we were 15 and 17 respectively.

We had first stayed a year and a half together before separating and meeting again five years later.

Our second relationship lasted almost ten years with the birth of a little girl who is now 7 years old.

Our story ran out of steam and we preferred to put an end to it.

“I want to protect my daughter from media exposure”

Anabel, candidate for season 7 of "Married at first sight"

Your daughter does not appear in the story of your experience

in "Married at First Sight"


It will be like this until the end, this is my personal experience and I wish to protect her from this media exposure.

Whether on television or on social networks.

How did you decide to take part in the M6 ​​show?

I registered spontaneously, I have been watching “Married at first sight” for a few years.

After my separation from my daughter's dad, I met boys but it didn't work because they weren't sincere or because they didn't want to commit.

When I discovered that the production of "MAPR" was looking for singles in Occitania, I didn't want to have any regrets so I started.

Throughout the workshops and casting, I let myself be carried away by being 100% sincere.

How did you imagine this gentleman 74% compatibility before meeting him in Gibraltar?

In my criteria, I had asked for someone older than me, up to ten years older maximum.

Brown or brown with light eyes, someone calm and thoughtful, who complements me.

I have already had relations with men who resembled me on the level of the character and that did not hold.

For this second love life, I need to vibrate, have fun and live a long relationship with someone calm.

“Our first kiss was very strong, very generous”

Anabel, candidate for season 7 of "Married at first sight"

How was your wedding day in Gibraltar?

I let myself be carried very serenely throughout the duration of the experience and, on D-Day, I had a lot of stress.

Especially on the way to the place of the ceremony, I was in the car with my parents and I thought a lot.

I was not leading off.

It was the bouquet of flowers that held me up, not the other way around.


When the curtain opens, when do you look up to see Fabrice?

I didn't see it well right away because it was in direct sunlight.

In the distance, I just perceived his silhouette.

And by dint of moving forward, I was able to get a clearer idea and see that he had blue eyes.

When I found it difficult to progress towards him because of the length of my dress, he came to meet me.

As soon as our hands touched, I felt an incredible energy that overwhelmed us both.

Can you remember your first exchanges?

Fabrice spoke very quickly, he introduced me to his family and loved ones.

He took an interest in me.

Then we just looked each other up and down.

We were in our world.

Did you expect your father, a former mayor, to take the vows and validate your marriage?

Not at all, it was a huge surprise.

I tried to contain my tears but it was impossible.

It was a very strong moment.

In "Married at first sight"

, the intensity of the first kiss varies from one couple to another...

We were on a galosh!

(Laughs.) It illustrated the fluidity and intensity of our meeting.

I no longer wanted to let go.

Our first kiss was very strong, very generous.

And the second, too.

It's not something you can anticipate, you let yourself be carried away by the emotions of the moment.
