It's hard to believe, but the Russian model Natalya Vodianova is a mother of five children.
The eldest child of the 34-year-old fashion model is already 15 years old, and the youngest is only 9 months old. The status of a mother with many children does not in the least deprive Vodianova of social life. She is also active and proactive, ready to work without adhering to the work schedule, if it will benefit someone.
As you know, Vodianova is actively involved in charity work, nevertheless, she finds time for her family. Natalia's children do not feel a lack of mother's attention, the upbringing of their children lies entirely on the shoulders of the model.
As Natalia says, she, as a real parent, sometimes steps over herself and forces herself to be a strict parent, because she knows that in the future it will benefit her heirs: “It is very important for children to have a framework of what is permissible. This is generally the most important thing for a child. At this age, you cannot make decisions for yourself. In principle, a parent is God, I see it this way. And if I am in this status, it is a huge responsibility. This means that I must not only give love, but also life lessons, a certain framework. And I need the child to adhere to these commandments, otherwise he will be punished. This is totally normal. If a child has no frame, then he has no love. In the future, not a single child will thank his mother for letting him do everything, for not calling: “Why are you not home yet, I told you to come back at so-and-so”. If she didn’t call, then she didn’t love.”
Let's remind, five children of Natalia were born from two different men. All the children were born abroad, but thanks to their Russian-speaking mother, they know the language, so it sounds quite often at home: “When Lucas was born, I was 19 years old. I was very young, I lived in America. She spoke Russian with her son until he was three years old. Then he stopped answering me in Russian - he switched to English. And I decided it was easier this way. I worked a lot, I just wanted to be with my son: easier in English means in English. And until now, unfortunately, Lucas and I cannot switch to Russian. He understands that we have the most beautiful girls in the world - I constantly tell him about this. This is a good incentive for learning the Russian language. But with Neva, Viktor, Maxim, now with Roman I speak only Russian. Their level of Russian is much higher than that of Lucas."
