His father, Antoine, is from La Désirade island, Guadeloupe. His mother, Maryse, is from Martinique. Thierry was born and raised in the Les Ulis suburb of Paris, which, despite being seen as a tough neighbourhood, provided good footballing facilities.

He has three children, including a daughter with his former wife, English model Nicole Merry.
