For many years, Alexander Ovechkin has been playing for the Washington hockey club and lives in the United States. Of course, Anastasia Shubskaya with her sons is next to him. Spouses often come to Russia and, according to the athlete's wife, they are even calmer in Moscow.
Previously, the star family flew from the USA to Russia without any problems, but now there are difficulties, so the couple does not visit Moscow so often.
“The plans are to take care of children, home and support her husband,” says Shubskaya. - I have two projects: one in the field of beauty, the other in the restaurant. But they are in Moscow, and most of the time we spend in Washington. They have already been implemented, but require development. An additional difficulty is now in flights: if earlier it was possible to sit down and fly to Russia in 10 hours, now the journey takes almost a day. But I will try to do everything from a distance.”
At the same time, the couple loves their native country very much. “Home is Moscow. We grew up here, our parents and friends are here. Of course, in America during this time we managed to have close people, but we still consider Russia our home, ”said 28-year-old Anastasia. Anastasia Shubskaya: “Close people appeared in America, but Sasha and I consider Russia our home” The couple have sons Seryozha and Ilya
Despite being busy and constantly training, Ovechkin devotes a lot of time to loved ones. By the way, the 37-year-old athlete dreams of a third child - now Alexander and Anastasia are raising their sons Sergei and Ilya. Now that's romance!

“When I met Nastya, I immediately fell in love! And now I understand that I am next to a person and don't find someone better. She gave me two wonderful sons, and I hope that we will have more children. When I wake up, I understand that I am the happiest person, next to me is a charming, intelligent and understanding woman. I thank God that I have such a wife. She will always prompt, if necessary, make a remark, show kindness and tenderness. Maybe it’s not quite right to say this, but I’m in the state that any man would like to be in: I have a friend, a lover and a wife all rolled into one ... I want us to be at least five, and preferably six. This is my dream, ”the hockey player admitted.
