Le Derniere Heure reported Degauque was born and raised in Charleroi, Belgium. The newspaper quoted her parents as saying that her Moroccan-born husband, Issam Goris, was responsible for her conversion to Islam.
Jean and Liliane Degauque told the newspaper their daughter was brainwashed by Goris.

Goris was killed in Iraq in a separate incident, according to media reports.”
