Kim Kardashian's BFF (besides her gigundous derriere, of course), Brittny "Can I Buy a Vowel?" Gastineau (daughter of Mark Gastineau, formerly of the New York Jets) recently met her half-brother, Killian Marcus Gastineau.Â Killian is now 20 and, although his existence was no secret to Brittny, the opportunity never presented itself until recently - most likely because of the sticky situation involving how he came into existence.Â According to PEOPLE Magazine, Mark Gastineau left Brittny's mom, Lisa, over two decades ago for actress (Really, we can call her that?) Brigitte Nielsen, and Killian was the result of their union.Â Despite the obvious implications of how Brittny's mother must have felt, she ran into Nielsen at Ivana Trump's wedding last year, and, surprisingly, the two exchanged numbers.Â Killian runs a wine and champagne company in Italy, but Nielsen texted Brittny's mom not long ago to let her know that he was in the US, and would love to meet Brittny.Â PEOPLE shared the details:
So, Brittny and her mother met Nielsen and her husband Mattia Dessi, along with Marcus, for dinner at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills.
"It was very weird and surreal," says Brittny, who hasn't been in touch with her father for several years. "I didn't cry. I'm too tough to cry. But we hugged, we talked about old stories. He said he watched Gastineau Girls in Italy, so he knew what I looked like."
Brittny went on to say that she asked her half-brother a ton of questions despite the fact that he speaks no English, and called him "very cute."Â Apparently, the notion of half-brother has gone over Brittny's head.Â Summing up the meeting, Brittny said, "It's kind of hard to know someone in just one dinner, so I'm definitely going to stay in touch with him. But I'm going to have to learn Italian!"
