Although most Barbie movie fanatics donned their all-pink fits last weekend, Justin Trudeau and his son Xavier sported matching pink tops on August 6 when they attended Greta Gerwig's blockbuster hit together. This deeply normal activity and Trudeau's unremarkable post about the film on X (formerly known as Twitter), which simply reads "We're team Barbie," sent X commenters (formerly known as Twitter users) absolutely wild.

Astute readers may notice that the Prime Minister and his son are wearing rather simple outfits, just a sweater and an athletic shirt respectively, but that didn't stop X commenters from assuming the Trudeaus were coming out as gay. "Tell me you switched teams without telling me," one X user wrote.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire have stood as Canada's first family since Trudeau's election in 2015. The couple almost always appeared as a united front, which is not surprising given the way we all manage our social media images — but we can't discount that the two have been married for nearly 20 years.

After tying the knot in 2005, the Trudeau duo began to expand their family and welcomed their first son Xavier in 2007. Justin and Sophie are also parents to 14-year-old daughter Ella-Grace and nine-year-old Hadrien.

Justin Trudeau and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau announced their separation on August 2, 2023, after nearly 20 years of marriage. Though Trudeau's position as prime minister of Canada puts him firmly and regularly in the spotlight, Grégoire Trudeau has hardly been a wallflower.
Her natural grace in combination with her charismatic demeanour are among the qualities that stand out the most.

Sophie was born in Ste-Adèle, but when she was 4 years old, she and her parents moved to Mont Royal (an enclave on the island of Montreal known also as Town of Mount Royal) where she grew up on Rue Cornwall. Her parents, Jean Grégoire and Estelle Blais, earned honest livings: Grégoire as a stockbroker and Blais as a nurse.

Sophie, who is an only child, went to school with Justin Trudeau's younger brother Michel Trudeau, which led her to eventually befriend her now-husband. Michel Trudeau passed away in 1998 in an avalanche, when he was only 23 years old.
