During the first meeting with Vincent we had a strange feeling. Originally, we thought that it was the antipathy to each other, but later, getting to know each other better, we realized, that it was the magic of attraction. I don’t know, how we found ourselves together, we rather didn`t choose who we want to be with, it is just happened.However, the couple did not start to live together – Monica was in need of personal space and independence. Even in several years, after the wedding, they continued to split the time between the two houses – he is in France, she is in Italy. The actress explained this by the fact that she didn't want to dive into a family routine.
