In August of this year, 62-year-old Valery Syutkin and his 45-year-old wife Viola became parents again. The star couple had a son named Leo. After the vocalist and his chosen one shared the good news with the public, they heard more than congratulations.
Given the age of the spouses, and the fashion in stellar circles to acquire children with the help of modern medical procedures, spiteful critics began to claim that Valery and Viola used the services of a surrogate mother. The young father reacted to the attacks, saying that he was completely unaffected by other people's speculations.
“I am absolutely indifferent to the proposed versions about a surrogate mother and so on. Yes, think what you want! The main thing is that I myself know. We are happy,”said the musician.
At the same time, Valery Syutkin clarified that they still have to hold the line against those who speak unflatteringly about their late parenting.
It is worth noting that the star couple managed to keep the fact of the imminent replenishment in the family a secret. Valery Syutkin posted a photo of his pregnant wife on Instagram after the birth of his son.
“Alas, because of social networks, there are many ill-wishers who like to mock others. This explains all our restraint. When we found out about the pregnancy, then we went to an ultrasound scan, which told us the gender, then they made complete isolation - not a single photo in social networks,”Valery Syutkin said in an interview with Antenna-Telesem.
