Both Marie & Per have families.
Marie has been married to Micke Bolyos since (DATE) and has two children by him - Josefin Inez (born 29-4-1993) and Oscar Mikael (born 26-11-1996).
Per has been married to Åsa Nordin since August 21st 1993, after being together for about 12 years after meeting in a disco. Åsa gave birth to their first son Gabriel Titus (GT) on August 5th 1998.
Below is a translation from Aftonbladet when Gabriel was born from Simon Gledhill
Gessle Jr. A star is born: Gabriel Titus Gessle - "with the initials GT just like my Ferrari, or why not like Gyllene Tider", says Per Gessle.
He looks like he has it pretty good, Gabriel Titus Gessle, lying there with daddy Per and mummy Åsa i their home in Halmstad.
He came into the world at Karolinska hospital in Stockholm on 5th August. To the sounds of the Beatles "Yellow Submarine" came the 53 centimetre long and 3.68 kilo heavy start into the world. A big chap despite the early birth - but there were no complications and the whole family were well after the delivery.
And daddy Per was happy about his son's long piano-fingers.
But what the baby's name should be was still unclear. For a long time the baby's working name had been Ringo, after the drummer in the Beatles. But now Per and Åsa have agreed on Gabriel Titus Gessle.
In an earlier interview in the summer Per Gessle said to the express that he was looking forward to becoming a father. Joking he said that he already had big plans for his child - "I hoping that at least an ice-hockey professional or a "playmate of the year" is born", said Gessle and laughed. Now that it is Gabriel Titus it looks like the "playmate of the year" is no longer an option. Still he could still be an ice-hockey pro. Or a pop-star like Daddy.
