Andre was born in Maastricht, Netherland to an another conductor, Andre Leon Rieu Sr. He married his wife Marjorie in 1975. It is also said that the couple met each other at a mere age of 15 and 13 respectively. It seems it was love at first sight for both of them and they are prospering at a very good rate.
Long Marriage with Marjorie Rieu
Andre and Marjorie tied the knot in 1975. Andre married Marjorie when he was a student.
Both of them were mere teenagers when they decided to set foot in life together. At that time Andre wasn't earning well so Marjorie was the one who took matters into her own hands and took care of the house.
Andre used to do all the household chores as Marjorie was doing a job and she couldn't do everything.
Both of them supported each other in their worst of times and because of that support Andre is in this position. If it wasn't for his wife, he wouldn't be here entertaining all of us.
Children with Marjorie
In 1978, their first son was born. They named him Marc Rieu. It was a very joyous year for Andre as he founded his first orchestra at that same time named Maastricht Salon Orchestra.
Then in 1981, his wife gave him the joyous moment of being a father for the second time when she gave birth to their second child, a son named Pierre Rieu.
Currently, his first son Marc is now helping in the family business as he is now the Technical engineer of his Orchestra. His second son Pierre is currently focusing on his studies.
He recently celebrated 2 million fans on his Facebook account. He is very active on Twitter and regularly posts on his account.
