Her parents were not living together when she was born and infant Robin was mostly raised by her mother who was based in France. As aforementioned, her father was the very popular wrestling legend, Andre “The Giant” Roussimoff, while her mother was named Jean Christensen. She was the only child of her parents and unfortunately, she has become an orphan now, as her parents are both dead.

She believes that her father’s legacy as a hall of fame legend of the WWF has been forgotten and it was disrespectful to his memory. She was contacted to be a consultant when a documentary film was to be made about the life and times of her father, Andre The Giant. Robin eventually went on to star as herself in the documentary, giving her own perspectives about her father. The documentary was released sometime in 2018.

Robin’s relationship with her father was not the best that a daughter would have hoped for, but unfortunately, that was what she got. The first time she ever met her father was at a hospital, where Andre had requested that a DNA test should be conducted on her to truly determine if she was his biological daughter. She can recollect clearly that she only saw her father just 5 times in her entire life; she believes he wanted to see more of her, but his busy schedule and career did not just afford him the luxury of time to do so.

Her Father Had The Gigantism Disorder

Long and die-hard fans of wrestling can comfortably tell the tale of who Andre The Giant was. He was one of the best wrestlers that the WWF ever produced. He was undefeated for close to 15 years in his active days as a wrestler and despite his towering and imposing physique, he was also known as the gentle giant. He weighed in at 236 Kg (520 lbs) and towered over other very impressively built wrestling superstars at 7 feet and 4 inches (a whopping 224 cm).

Andre’s mammoth size was as a result of a gigantism disorder, brought about by the release of excess growth hormones in his body. This condition later turned into acromegaly, a condition he refused to be operated upon to cure it, fearing that its cure might lead to him losing his unique physique.
