Perhaps three isn’t a crowd for François-Henri Pinault.

Actress Salma Hayek‘s billionaire husband has spoken out for the first time about his child with another bold faced name, supermodel Linda Evangelista.

“He is totally integrated within my family,” Pinault told the French edition of Elle magazine about 4-year-old Augustin. “At every possible opportunity he has participated in my family life whether in France or the United States.”

Pinault added that Augustin has a relationship with his 3-year-old half-sister, Valentina, Pinault’s daughter with Hayek.

The family tree went from complicated to contentious earlier this year when Evangelista took Pinault to court, saying he hasn’t paid her a dollar (or, as the case may be, a Euro) of child support since Augustin was born. Pinault also refuted those claims to Elle, saying he’s ”recognized” Augustin as his son since the day he was born.
