Irina Slutskaya has a son

Translation of article by Elena Sheremetova, a correspondent of the Russian Language newspaper Komsomolskaja Pravda, printed on November 16, 2007.

The long awaited first-born of the famous figure skater and now a commentator of the show “Ice Age” Irina Slutskaya and her husband Segey Micheev was delivered by a Caesarian section yesterday at 10 am. The newborn was small – 47 cm and 2.3 kilograms (18.5 inches and 5.1 pounds).

Last Wednesday, Irina was admitted to the hospital and was placed in a comfortable room, checked out and in the morning the planned operation was performed.

Her husband was near her at all times, he encouraged and supported her. He was the first one to hold their son. The medical staff said that she was courageous and was doing very well. Of course she was worried before the operation, but later she was glowing with happiness.

Irina is a commentator of the popular show, "Ice Age," with her partner Marat Basharov.

When the producers of Channel 1 of Russian TV were asked what will happen with her work at the show now that's she's had a child, it was said that the show will wait for her. The operation was planned, went well and in a week she is expected to get out of the hospital. Ilja Averbuch is willing to give her as much time as she would need to recover from the operation and to get used to her role of a young mother.

For two or three performances they would find a replacement for her (it was not known at the time of this writing who that would be) and after that Irina will decide what she wants to do. Knowing her strong and fighting character, the people at the show are almost sure that she would come back for taping as soon as she can.
