Fred had a 12-year romance with ex-girlfriend Alex and shares two children with her, Andrea, 17, and 11-year-old Lucien.


Fred’s daughter Andrea Spenolini-Sirieix is a British diver and was crowned BBC’s Young Sports Personality of the Year in December last year.

The 17-year-old, who grew up in London, is a member of the Crystal Palace Diving Club in south London and has competed around the globe including Kazan in Russia.

Competing in the Women’s 10 Platform, Andrea won gold at the British Championships in January and February last year and the FINA Grand Prix in Rostock, Germany.

Andrea was the first female diver to win the BBC award and said Fred “cried” following the announcement.

The proud dad regularly shares diving clips of Andrea to his Instagram.


Fred’s younger brother is Pierre Lao-Sirieix who is a director at AstraZeneca – the manufacturer of the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine.

According to his LinkedIn, he is the director of precision medicine and biosamples and has worked for the pharmaceutical company for five years and four months.
