On a show, where Ariane sang, she paid tribute to her father, in a subtle manner. Her mother wrote on Instagram with the caption: “Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing. So strong and brave. She wore the boots you bought her. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are.”
Anthony loves his daughter who he had when he was in his 50s. He shared his fatherly love for Ariane on his social media.
In his book Appetites: A Cookbook., Anthony wrote: “From the second I saw my daughter’s head corkscrew out of the womb, I began making some major changes in my life. I was no longer the star of my own movie — or any movie. From that point on, it was all about the girl. Fatherhood has been an enormous relief, as I am now genetically, instinctually compelled to care more about someone other than myself. I like being a father. No, I love being a father. Everything about it.”
Talking about Ariane’s mother, Ottavia Busia Bourdain hailed from Sardinia Island, Italy. She grew up in a small town called Lombardy in Northern Italy. She previously pursued a career in dentistry before relocating to the United States.
