Igor Nikolaev, 60, is a happy father of two daughters. The first heiress Julia was born in his first union with Elena Kudryashova, a classmate and first love.
The maestro's marriage lasted from 1978 to 1991. Currently, his ex-wife and 42-year-old daughter live in Miami. The heiress contrives to combine two professions - a doctor and a composer.
In 1992, the people's artist married Natasha Koroleva, having lived with her for 9 years. But there were no children in this relationship. But the third wife of the composer, Yulia Proskuryakova, again made Nikolayev happy with a child. Veronica is now five years old, and she is already trying not only to sing, like her mom and dad, but to write music with poetry.
Despite the difference in age at 37 years old, both daughters of the musician get along well and love each other very much. Every year Nika comes to visit her sister in Miami and regularly receives parcels with gifts from her. Alas, this year, due to the pandemic, the meeting of the relatives was postponed for an indefinite moment, as the People's Artist reported on his personal blog. However, in a photo collage, he was able to reunite his heiresses.
“My beloved daughters. What a different autumn they have, and how they miss each other!"
