Robin Christensen-Roussimoff

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff is Andre the Giant’s daughter from his marriage with Jean Christensen and is playing an important role in keeping his legacy alive by having a say whenever his likeness is used and receiving royalties when it is.

Andre the Giant

Robin Christensen-Roussimoff was a titan in the wrestling world. Born with acromegaly, an uncommon hormonal condition which caused his growth to accelerate significantly more than normal, Andre left home at 14 to pursue professional wrestling as his profession.

In the early 1970s, Andre met Jean Christensen who worked in public relations within the wrestling world. Although they shared one child named Robin together, their relationship deteriorated rapidly as his travel schedule made maintaining regular contact between father and daughter difficult.

His passion was drinking; sometimes downing up to 106 beers in one night! Andre was famous for breaking wrestlers’ ankles during matches; most notably Killer Khan in 1981 despite the exaggerated stories; however he did indeed break Khan’s leg during this match. Robin later took over managing Andre’s image and reputation and still speaks publicly about her father. She remains an admirer of wrestling.

Jean Christensen

Jean Christensen is the mother of Robin Christensen-Roussimoff, born in the United States to Andre Rene Roussimoff (deceased). At an astounding 46-36-41 inches and 211 pounds respectively, Robin stands 46-36-41. Her impressive stature can be attributed to acromegaly.

She worked as both a model and wrestling publicist in the 1970s, meeting Andre the Giant through both activities. They dated for several years before finally having a child together despite never marrying each other; though Andre never fully acknowledged motherhood due to his busy work schedule and only saw his daughter intermittently throughout life.
