The ex-wife of Roman Abramovich Dasha Zhukova was photographed for the first time with her newborn son on the day of her 40th birthday.
A gallery owner from Moscow and her 36-year-old billionaire husband, Stavros Niarchos, had a child, Filippos Stavros Niarchos. This happened in March, 14 months after their luxury wedding in St. Moritz…
The couple named their first child in honor of Stavros’ father. Dasha also has a son, Aaron, and a daughter, Leah, from her ex-husband Roman Abramovich, whom she divorced in 2017.
In the picture that her close friend Derek Blasberg shared on Instagram for Dasha’s birthday, we see a businesswoman holding her son, the fruit of her love with Stavros Niarhos, in her arms, and smiling at the camera, while the child is sleeping peacefully. “I wish this loving mom a happy birthday,” her friend wrote under the photo.
Derek also shared a snapshot of Dasha with the older children, Aaron and Leah, and presented a new Instagram photo taken during Dasha’s pregnancy.
Dasha Zhukova and Stavros Niarhos kept the pregnancy a secret and did not officially announce their plans to start a family. Philip’s birth as well as his name were inadvertently announced on Instagram by their close friend Diane von Fürstenberg, who announced the birth of a child in mid-March, writing: “Welcome to the world, Philip Stavros Niarchos.”
In an interview with the Daily Mail last week with Sebastian Shakespeare, a friend of the couple said, “They are happy. After a very difficult year, isolated from loved ones, this is the perfect way to start a new chapter. “
Recall that Dasha Zhukova and Stavros Niarhos have been friends for over ten years, but became a couple after her almost 10-year marriage with Abramovich broke up. Playboy Stavros Niarchos dated Paris Hilton from late 2005 to March 2007, while he had relationships with actresses Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen, as well as model Jessica Hart.
After the divorce, Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich “remained friends” and maintain a relationship, Roman takes care of his children.
Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich are co-founders of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art and the New Holland Island Cultural Center in St. Petersburg.
