How Old is Brigitte Lahaie? What is her Height?
Brigitte Lahaie was born Brigade Van Meerhaegue in Tourcoing, Nord, France, on October 12, 1955, to a banker father and an accountant mother. She is 65 years old at the time of this writing and stands at 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 meters).
One of four children, Lahaie was raised in Alsace and Lyon, eventually moving to Paris with her sister when she turned eighteen, where she worked as a shoe salesgirl.

In the mid-2000s, Lahaie was the second-in-command of a French political party called "Aujourd'hui autrement".
