Olivier is a half-brother of Nicolas Sarkozy and a French banker, based in the U.S. The couple is not afraid of the big age difference and seem to be really happy together.
Dating and wedding
Their romance started in 2012, but at that time, there were only rumors about the couple. Even though Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy tried to keep their relations private and did their best to cover faces, paparazzi managed to take photos showing the engagement ring in 2014.

After three years of dating each other, Mary-Kate and Olivier officially became a husband and a wife during a private wedding ceremony in New York.
Sisters Ashley and Mary-Kate
Ashley says that sisterhood with Mary-Kate was like being in a marriage and a partnership. Like everyone else, they had ups and downs, and the two did everything together. The twins were especially popular during their childhood years due to their roles in the television sitcom Full House. Besides, they starred together in many other movies and shows.
