Mélia Benzema is a daughter of soccer star Karim Benzema and actress/model Chloe de Launay. Though her parents went separate ways, they remain in friendly relations to be good co-parents for their child.
Though Karim has always protected his daughter’s privacy, he took Mélia to the 2018 Champions League final in Kiev. When her dad’s team won, the girl joined Benzema on the field for celebration. And in 2019, the athlete promised the girl to score three times in a game against Athletic Bilbao. After doing that, he had a ball signed by his teammates and gifted it to Mélia.
A curious fact: in 2018, Karim shared a photo of Mélia playing with a baby tiger at their home. As a result, he was severely criticized by animal rights advocates.
