Grego's Early Life
Grego Minot’s childhood story is very much different from the reality stars she is working with. She was an adopted child. She was born on December 1, 1975, in Thailand’s capital of Bangkok. However, she was put on adoption by her parents and she was adopted by a Frenchman and his wife. Her adoptive father was a native of France while her mom was from Quebec. (1)
Her adoptive father was an employee of the French Government in Bangkok, Thailand. Despite being a native of Bangkok, Thailand she wasn’t really raised there. Gregoriane Minot was raised in Montreal together with three other siblings. Her brother was also adopted, but he was not from Thailand. He was adopted from the Philippines.
Gregoriane Minot was raised in a loving home and didn’t really find the need to look for her birth parents. However, in 2017, she finally traveled to Thailand to meet her biological mother. Together with parents, husband, and their children they met with the biological mother she hasn’t seen since she was just 2 weeks old.
Meeting her bio-mom was such an amazing experience for her as she was able to understand the reason why she was put on adoption. She found out that while she was looking for her mom, she was looking for her too.
There was an instant connection when they started speaking. Her mom told her that when she was born, she was a single mother. Adoption was the best option she had, but during that time adoption wasn’t really a part of Thai culture at that time.
One thing she realized upon meeting her mom was that all she had for her was just pure love. For Gregor Minot, it was better to meet her mom at a later age since she was already mature enough to understand her reasons.

She was the kind of person who chooses to only see the good in people. If he was to describe her, he said she was pure, compassionate, and artistic. (2)
The couple got engaged in Vienna. They were on a horse-drawn carriage on the way to Sisi Palace. Upon arrival, Pierre got down on his knees and proposed.
After getting married, they traveled to Thailand for their Honeymoon. It was the first time she’s traveled there ever since her adoption when she was just 2 weeks old.
