This summer, 30-year-old Ivan Yankovsky and his 29-year-old beloved Diana Pozharskaya became parents for the first time – the couple, who, according to rumors, tied the knot, had a son. They named the kid after his great-grandfather, the famous Soviet and Russian actor Oleg Yankovsky.
Yesterday the birth of his grandson was first commented on by his star grandfather, 52-year-old Philip Yankovsky, who became a guest of the “Evening Urgant” show. He came to the program in connection with the release of the last film with his participation “Ivan Denisovich”, which premiered yesterday in Moscow. Despite the loud event, the conversation began with a personal topic.
Oksana and I (Oksana Fandera is the wife of Philip Yankovsky – editor's note) are certainly happy. This is great happiness. Oksana and I named our son Ivan, and he called his own Oleg, and it turned out Oleg Ivanovich, which is also a great happiness for us,
– he said.

Yankovsky noted that they did not insist that Ivan and Diana name their son Oleg, and were very happy when the couple made a choice in favor of this name.
We thought that this was probably some kind of sign. Good sign,
– he said.

The actor added that his grandson is feeling great and will soon celebrate three months from his birthday.
We babysit him, it's a great pleasure
– he shared.
Philip Yankovsky said that they try to spend time with the whole family as often as possible, despite the fact that their work schedules do not coincide. At the same time, he called Pozharskaya a daughter-in-law.
In those happy moments when we meet with the whole family – now our daughter-in-law Diana and Oleg Ivanovich have appeared in our family – we all get together,
– he declared.

Recall that the novel by Ivan Yankovsky and Diana Pozharskaya, who starred with him in the film “World Champion” (probably on this set, and their relationship began), became known a year ago. The couple hid their relationship for a long time, however, as well as the pregnancy of the actress.
Prior to her relationship with Yankovsky, Pozharskaya was married to the director and screenwriter Artem Aksenenko, and Ivan was in a relationship for a long time with the daughter of the leader of the Alisa group, Konstantin Kinchev, Vera.
