Ilya Averbukh and Liza Arzamasova
The novel of 47-year-old Ilya Averbukh and 26-year-old Liza Arzamasova, which became known last year, surprised many. Before, Ilya and Lisa did not give reason to suspect themselves in a relationship, although after their romantic relationship became known, rumors appeared that they had known each other for a long time and allegedly met when the actress was still a minor. In the new episode of the program “50 Questions. Sport” on the Premier video service, the skater confirmed that he had really met Lisa many years ago. He first met Arzamasova when she was only 15 years old.
I met her when she was invited to the Ice Age project. Moreover, it was not my idea at all – to invite Lisa. I thought she was too young – she was then 15 years old. The question arose: “What to do with it?” We still have a lot of dances about love, relationships. I did not watch “Daddy's Daughters” (the series in which Arzamasova starred. – Ed.) And was not a fan of the series. And she, of course, fascinated. Lisa cannot but charm
– he said.

Their next meeting happened 10 years later – they met at one of the events. Then Liza was already 25 years old, and Averbukh looked at her in a completely different way.
I saw a 25 year old girl. We just saw each other. And we really somehow immediately wanted to be together. We realized that we speak the same language. I love her defenselessness in front of the world. I always liked her. I, of course, thought the world would defeat her. And then I saw that, having passed so much, she retained this angelic light in herself. You can laugh at it, smear it, say “sweet syrup” – I see it, feel it and love it. I love and hope it will be with us all our lives, – added Averbukh.
The age difference (and for the couple it is 21 years old) Ilya and Lisa are not embarrassed. The athlete says that he does not feel it at all.
There is no chasm between us. There is one single breath. At the same time, Lisa has her own social circle, her world, into which I am not trying to squeeze myself. We are very good
– he said.
A year ago, Ilya Averbukh and Liza Arzamasova got married, and in August they had a son, Lev. From a previous marriage with Irina Lobacheva, the skater has a 16-year-old son, Martin, who gets along well with his father's new family.
