FDP leader Christian Lindner (43) is marrying his great love Franca Lehfeldt (33) on the North Sea island of Sylt this week. She is also extremely successful and has made a name for herself. But what makes the native of Hamburg tick?
It was only at the beginning of this year that Lehfeldt left the RTL capital city studio after five years, where she worked as the chief political reporter. She now holds the same post at “World”. She recently reported on the G7 summit in Elmau for the news channel.
We are enchanted by the pretty Franca. You can see everything you need to know about the woman who will marry Christian Lindner in the video above.
Lindner and Lehfeldt met four years ago in Berlin
The 33-year-old came to journalism via detours. Franca Lehfeldt studied hotel management in Glion, Switzerland, and later completed her master’s degree in marketing in Munich and Boston. This was followed in 2017 by a traineeship at the RTL School of Journalism. Franca Lehfeldt regularly takes her Instagram followers behind the TV scenes. It becomes clear how much she burns for her job.
Incidentally, Lindner’s ex-wife Dagmar Rosenfeld is also a journalist. She is editor-in-chief of “Welt am Sonntag”.
Lehfeldt and Lindner are said to have met four years ago in Berlin, according to “Bild”. Coincidence and politics brought them together, they say. The two are said to have had professional e-mail contact a year earlier. At that time, Lehfeldt was still working as an RTL reporter in Cologne and probably wanted to invite the politician to a show. At the Richard Wagner Festival in Bayreuth in 2018, they officially appeared as lovers for the first time.
The FDP leader is said to have made the application on his loved one’s birthday in September 2021. According to “Bild” there was a heartfelt kiss at midnight, then a loving speech and finally the question of all questions followed. The romantic surprise took place at the Berlin scene Greek “Cassambalis”. According to the report, Franca Lehfeldt’s parents, her best friend and Heiner Bremer were there. Lehfeldt has the joint podcast “Redezeit” with the RTL journalist legend.
None of the guests would have expected Lindner to ask for the birthday boy’s hand on this September evening. After all, the FDP leader was in the middle of the hot campaign phase at the time.
Christian Lindner wishes for a family
Lehfeldt is likely to be very close to her father, Claus-Holger Lehfeldt. Because, according to information from “Bild”, he can become her best man. It is not known whether the journalist can even imagine becoming a mother. In any case, this seems to be a big wish for her future husband.
In a BUNTE interview in August 2021, he says: “Actually, my greatest wish in life is not to be a minister in the government, but to have two, three or four girls or boys soon.”
