Irina Slutskaya is back on the Ice Age show after giving birth.

Translation of an article by Lidia Pavlenko, a correspondent of a Russian language newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda” printed on November 29, 2007

The announcer of the ice show, "Ice Age," Marat Basharov appeared at the latest taping of the show with a shapely woman.

Could it be Slutskaya, the extras of the show asked each other? Some commented that it could not be her since she just gave birth, and she was not that slim, although the smile was her's. Really, if it was not for her smile, it would be hard to recognize the famous figure skater – she lost more than 20 pounds. And she did not use any special diets or exercises. Just dropped the weight and became a new person.

As promised, Irina decided not to stay home, even though her son is only 2 weeks old. She missed only one taping of the show, where she was replaced by an actress, Ingeborga Dapkunaite. But for the next show, Irina came in smiling as usual. The producer of the project, Ilja Averbuch, promised to arrange special conditions for the new mother and a special room where her son would stay with his nurse and where she could breastfeed him. Irina decided that she would not bring her son to work, but would rather have the option to have “nursing breaks." The new schedule of taping will include these breaks for feeding her son, Artem.

The return of Irina to the show was not the only good news. The show "Ice Age" received a guest of honor – Evgeny Pluschenko, who performed a beautiful program on ice. He had to repeat it three times since his phenomenal skating speed was too much for the cameras to catch all of the nuances of his performance.
