In 2015, Léa Salamé met Raphaël Glucksmann on the set of "On n'est pas couché". In the aftermath of the attacks, Laurent Ruquier had gathered on his set several personalities. After seven years together and the birth of a baby boy born in 2017, it is still love that drives the couple.

"The relationship soothed me," Léa Salamé confides to Guyonne de Montjou in the Figaro show "Libre à Vous". "He taught me that not everything was a balance of power. I thought that life was a balance of power all the time and that either you win or you lose. Either you move forward or you go backwards and actually, no," she continues, adding: "He taught me to lay down my arms. He taught me serenity. Accepting to be who I was. Break a little bit this kind of mega armor that I had built for myself. He did things because of love."
A blended family
With Raphaël Glucksmann, the journalist and host of "Quelle époque!" form a blended family. Indeed, the MEP is also the father of a boy now eleven years old, whom he had with Eka Zguladze, a Georgian and Ukrainian politician. "The mother-in-law relationship is a very special and very interesting and rewarding relationship," says Léa Salamé. "It was a construction with my son-in-law, it's not immediate. We tame each other, we learn, we learn each other. And then, love comes in and grows," she says.

The two children get along "magnificently," says Léa Salamé enthusiastically, whose love for her son-in-law is "almost as great" as for her own child. "The mother, we must respect her, but all that, it is worked" then details the journalist, who rejects the cliché of the stepmother. She cites as a reference the film The Children of Others by Rebecca Zlotowski in which Virginie Efira falls in love with Roschdy Zem, also welcomes into her life the little Leila, the daughter of her companion.
