Anthony Bourdain’s Wife Shares Sweet Throwback Video On What Would Have Been His 63rd Birthday

Tuesday would have marked the 63rd birthday of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who tragically took his own life just over a year ago.

To honour his memory, the late “Parts Unknown” star’s estranged wife, Ottavia Busia, shared a sweet throwback video on Instagram.

In the video, Bourdain is seen playing in a swimming pool with the couple’s daughter, Ariane, who is now 12.

Busia, an MMA fighter, added a trio of crying emojis along with the hashtag #BOURDAINDAY, which was created by her late husband’s friends and fellow chefs Eric Ripert and Jose Andres.

Last month, Ripert and Andres appeared in a brief Instagram video announcing their plans to brand June 25 as #BourdainDay in honour of their late friend, asking fans to “post & share your tributes & memories of Anthony using #BourdainDay & wish him Peace, Love and a very Happy Birthday on his journey.”
