We can’t tell exactly what her date of birth is, since there’s very little information about that aspect of her life out there.
Famous in her own right, Unzip reports that Marie-Claire, originally from Germany is an author.
Her book, Stop Bullying Me, was published in 2021 and is currently stocked in Waterstones. Her novel is also available to purchase on Amazon, where it receives 5 out of 5 stars and some very positive reviews.
