Standing among global first ladies like Melania Trump and France's Brigitte Macron, Luxembourg's proud "first gentleman" Gauthier Destenay represented his nation at the Brussels NATO summit on Thursday.

Destenay, a 44-year-old architect originally from Belgium, is the husband of Xavier Bettel, the prime minister of Luxembourg since December 2013. The men married in 2015 after the small European nation legalized same-sex marriage, People reports.

Destenay joined the spouses and partners of other NATO leaders -- including Icelandic First Lady Thora Margret Baldvinsdottir and Turkish First Lady Emine Gulbaran Erdogan -- at a tour of Brussels's Rene Magritte museum. Destenay was seen having friendly conversations with many of the women, including Trump and Macron. The spouses later convened for dinner at a Brussels restaurant.
