Amina Zaripova and Alexey Kortnev
55-year-old Alexey Kortnev and his 45-year-old wife Amina Zaripova became parents again – the couple had a daughter, whom they named Agafya.
The message about the birth of the couple's daughter appeared yesterday in the official account of the “Accident” group, the leader of which is Kortnev. The spouses did not advertise pregnancy – only the closest knew about the upcoming replenishment in the family.
Today, the news of the addition was confirmed by Zaripova, sharing on the blog a picture taken during pregnancy, and at the same time dispelling rumors that a surrogate mother was carrying the baby to him and her husband. Amina gave birth to her daughter yesterday.
In marriage, Alexey and Amina, who were married 19 years ago, are raising three more children: 18-year-old Arseny, 15-year-old Afanasy and 10-year-old Aksinya. From a marriage with singer Irina Bogushevskaya, the musician has a 33-year-old son, Arseny, and from a relationship with actress Elena Lanskoy, a son, Nikita.
