Maria Sharapova became a mother just a month ago. In July, the famous tennis player announced that she had given birth to a boy, Theodore. Now the everyday life of a young mother is filled with small family joys, which she talks about on social networks. Maria shared a touching video on her page with the baby and said that breastfeeding is not easy for her. In the comments to the video, she urges young mothers not to be afraid of anything.
The first days of feeding are filled with unpredictability. Be kind to yourself and know everything will be fine, Sharapova writes.
Sharapova’s pregnancy became known for the first time at the end of April. The tennis player announced that she was pregnant on her 35th birthday. The athlete gave birth to a son from her boyfriend – British millionaire Alexander Gilks.
Alexander is considered one of the most desirable suitors in the UK, a member of the royal family and close friends with Princes William and Harry. In addition, the boyfriend knows Russian well and speaks with Masha in her native language. His mother, Robin, worked at the University of Oxford in the Department of Russian and Eastern European Studies for many years. Alexander studied at one of the most prestigious private schools in Britain – Eton, and there, in addition to French and Spanish, he also learned Russian. The young man planned that knowledge of Russian would be useful to him in his future career. But it turned out – in love.
Gilks is based in New York City and is an art dealer and co-founder of the auction house Paddle8. He has wealthy clients, and he is close friends with many celebrities: friends with Elton John and Madonna, Beyoncé and Victoria Beckham. Gilks’ fortune is estimated at several tens of millions of pounds. However, Maria is also a bride with a dowry, and she is one of the richest athletes on the planet.
