Anna Zhukova is the wife of the famous rocker Ilya Lagutenko and the mother of two children. Few people know that before marriage, the girl was a journalist, model and professional gymnast.
Anna Zhukova was born in Chita in July 1979. Her mother and her older sister were raised by her mother herself. Their father left the family before the birth of their youngest daughter. Valentina Zhukova worked as a gymnastics coach. That is why, from an early age, girls went in for sports. Anna's older sister always aspired to a modeling career, so she did gymnastics with little enthusiasm. The girl herself is completely immersed in sports. Mother helped her to enter a gymnasium with a sports bias. There Anna studied with great pleasure. The girl participated in various competitions and won prizes. After graduating from the university, Anna decided to leave the sport.
Her older sister lived in Paris and was a successful model. This is what prompted the younger Zhukova to go to her. The girls began to work together. Russian beauties received offers from Cavalli and Dior. In less than a year of living in Europe, Anna has become one of the highest paid models.
Having reached the peak of her modeling career, Zhukova decided to look for a new occupation. The girl returned to Russia and turned to journalism. For a short period of time Anna worked at the publishing house "Bolshoi Sport". It was not difficult for a person with a higher sports education to write short reviews and articles.
Acquaintance with Ilya Lagutenko
Anna met her future husband during an advertising photo shoot. A friend of the singer owned a store of designer items, so he invited him to participate. Anna was called by the Sobaka.ru magazine. Lagutenko admitted in an interview that they immediately found a common language with the girl. Until now, they remember this photo session with special warmth, which turned out to be fateful.
Anna and Ilya decided to hold a wedding ceremony on the seashore. They got married in 2007.
A year after the wedding, the couple had their first daughter. The newborn was given the unusual name Veronica-Valentina. In 2010, the Lagutenko family was replenished with another girl. They called her Letizia.
In 2011, the couple with children went to live in Los Angeles. In one of the last interviews, Anna Zhukova admitted that she was planning to move to Vladivostok. The family built a house there so that their daughters would remember their roots and not forget their origins.
At the moment, Anna left her career for the sake of the family. She takes care of the home and raising of her daughters. The mother tries to comprehensively develop the girls: she teaches them to embroider and instills a love of sports. That is why the children of the Lagutenko couple are precocious and smart.
The family travels a lot and often, changes their place of residence. However, in new places, they are in no hurry to make acquaintances. Young people have enough communication within their family circle.
