Each song about Denis Maidanov's love can be called a recognition of this feeling to his closest and dearest women: his wife Natalia and her daughter Vlada. Today, the friendly family of Maidanovs is our guest.
HAPPY PARENTS Often, with the advent of a child, a couple has a crisis in the relationship. DENIS MAYDANOV: No, quite the contrary, although I must say that everything was fine with Vlad and before us, and Natasha and I have been together since 2003. By the way, from the time when my daughter was born, and my career went up the hill. It was in the year of Vlad's birth that I began to sing my songs myself. NATALYA MAYDANOVA When Vlad was born, there were difficulties related to life primarily. Firstly, we lived in a rented one-room apartment. Secondly, there was a change in our regime. Before Vlady, the regime was alone, connected with the schedule of Denis, who was accustomed to get up at ten in the morning, to go to bed at three. Then everything changed dramatically. Daughters do not explain that she is a child of show business. She woke up at five in the morning, and she had to be engaged. And we did not have the opportunity to bring a grandmother back then. I was alone with Vlad, so three months after birth, without any diets, I became thinner than before. But all this happily coincided with the creative rise of Denis. The first songs appeared in his performance on radio stations, and he needed to continue this movement. I understood this perfectly and understood that it is impossible to load it at that moment, the creative person should create alone. Therefore, all the fire took over.
S.R. And when did you begin to help Denis as director? Vlad was a year old, it became a bit simpler, we moved to a big apartment, our grandmothers often came to visit us. I sat on the phone, I was engaged in a site. I was on maternity leave and at first I expected to go to my previous job - to continue my career as a marketing specialist. But then Denis and I decided that he needed me more. Not only as a wife, but also as a director. Well, when Vlad was two years old, we transported my grandmother, which coincided with the beginning of a stormy tour time.
S.R. That is, when you are on tour, with Grandma remains a grandmother? Vladka remains in the next house - that's literally in front of ours, where she lives with her grandmother, with my mother. That is, we have two apartments nearby: in one lives Vlada with my grandmother, in the other - we are with Natasha. We were forced this way, into two houses, to build the life of our family, when we realized that we can not quit our careers to the mercy of fate. The arrival of my mother helped us a lot, we can say that our plan worked: on the one hand, we unleashed our own hands, we were able to work actively, on the other hand, Vlada lives very close to us and under grandmother's supervision.
S.R. Vlada and spend the night with my grandmother? Yes. Although we, of course, always, whenever possible, try to take it to ourselves. But our schedule is so stressful that it does not happen as often as we would like.
S.R. Vlad does not worry that he does not live with you? Do you also ask to go on tour? Of course, he is. Misses exactly the same as we do. But she is a smart girl and takes everything as it should. Tolerates, in short. Will grow up - and on tour we will take it necessarily. Meanwhile, she goes to all Moscow concerts, knows all the songs by heart and sings from the auditorium. And then he asks: "Dad, did you hear me sing loudly?" N.M. We do not have months, but, thank God, people came up with Skype, which allows us to communicate. And still hard. Despite the fact that Vlad reacts to our separation as an adult: she restrains tears, understands everything - but my mother's heart is just bursting. And the guilt is constantly present ... Of course, it's hard for everyone. But we plan that as soon as circumstances permit, we will reunite, and our grandmother will come to us.
S.R. On the other hand, children really appreciate when parents are worth something and moms work not only with moms ... NM. Yes! I have examples of mothers who spent all their lives with children at home, justified by the fact that it is necessary for children. As a result, there is no gratitude from the children, and they have no other life. Parents should set an example.
S.R. Did you want a boy or a girl? I wanted a girl. Maybe because this is the third "whale", which I did not have enough for the two already available. One is my mother, who alone has been dragging me since childhood, because her parents divorced and she devoted her whole life to me. Mom is a great "whale" in my life. The second great "whale" was his wife - and support, and support, like-minded, friend, and, in addition, she is the beloved woman and the mother of my child. And Vlad is the third "whale", on which stands my life, my creativity.
S.R. Vlad's name is unusual. In honor of someone? Well no. We chose for a long time, because Natasha in the class, for example, had five Natasha. I did not want Vladka to repeat this story, so we decided to choose a Russian, but infrequent name. And they chose quite ancient Russian - Vlad. It is under the patronymic Denisovna well suited: Vlada Denisovna Maidanova, three solid "d".
S.R. Denis, and you were not present at her birth? No. I do not think a man should be there. There are doctors. Why should a man go into medical affairs? I think that everyone has his own. And my task is different - not to attend birth, and after childbirth to provide a decent life for the wife and child and surround them with care and love. And Natasha also thinks so.
S.R. Well, when the views in this match, and then, it happens, the wives insist, the husbands shirk, everyone quarrels ... DM. We have much in common. We never quarrel at all, do not swear.
S.R. How can you do it? We are just very close people.
S.R. Is it because you are so similar or so different? Similar. Wife - Aquarius, February 13, I am Aquarius, February 17th. Both very much appreciate freedom, we do not climb each other's personal territory - and it should be for everyone - and we understand each other as much as possible. In addition, we are motivated by one goal: to realize what we have come to Moscow for.
S.R. Do you have a family head or are you equal? The head of the family, of course, me. But there is a well-known and very wise concept of the head and neck in the family. So with us. I accept strategically important decisions, but Natasha always, of course, participates in everything. And sometimes her arguments are stronger than mine. But first of all we are friends and like-minded people. If someone is a more wise decision, we accept it. I think if I was engaged in some other activity, my wife would be there with me. And I would easily feel myself. And not only thanks to two higher educations, but also to his analytical mind. You know, a smart head and a beautiful girl will not be lost anywhere.
S.R. Simply put, do you complement each other? Absolutely.
S.R. What do you think, in your harmonious relations, what matters is that Natasha grew up in the East, in Tashkent? I think yes. This immediately bribed me. The Eastern way of life and the veneration of a man were all present.
S.R. And in what way is this expressed? On the one hand, at halftone level, on the other - when a man speaks, he is not denied. A woman will express her opinion, but later. It's just that there is respect, there is an understanding that the man is the head of the family. In any case. Although Natasha is quite an expansive person. And she can bounce and lead herself more actively. But at this moment I begin to understand it and even smile. In fact, Denis, of course, complimented me, because I would say that it is impossible to quarrel with him. Denis is very reserved and wise man, he bypasses sharp corners. It's me, on the contrary, explosive, to my dad, probably, a character. But at the same time I quickly leave. When I explode, I need to give vent to emotions (then I myself will cool down), but at this moment with me you can not swear. And Denis knows this very well.
S.R. Do you have any principles for raising a daughter? I spend little time with her, but I try to lay the foundation. Some kind of human foundation that a father should lay down: how to behave, how not to behave, where one can apply charm, where cunning, where knowledge, where rigidity - I try to communicate all this to her four-year-old brain. And she absorbs well, because between us is a very short distance, she is completely my copy, very similar to me in childhood. She is me, only in female guise. And the character, and outwardly, flesh from the flesh and even thought from thought on some cosmic level. We feel each other, really miss and, despite the separation, what I have to tell my father, I will inform. Sometimes we just sit down together and talk about serious things, about what makes an adult life. Maybe it's too early for her, but she also lives in the society: she goes to the kindergarten, to fitness, to the pool, so she needs to get up on her feet in this world. Vlada is a very creative person. She says she wants to be a writer, to write fairy tales. And already now he composes rhymes, songs, directly with the plot. Although we are not what we are not forcing, and I'm even more against that it relates life to professional creativity.
S.R. Why? I do not want her, for example, to go to the show business. For me, I'd better be an engineer or a doctor. Her life would be calmer. Show business - this is a great stress, and there either a pan, or disappeared, without options. And if there is a normal human profession, you will still work one way or another. Here you always need to break through the walls through your head. I want to protect her from this.
S.R. And what is her character? She is the leader, will be the leader. Stronger than me: if I am Aquarius, then she is generally a Leo. I like her stubbornness and uncompromising attitude. If you have made a decision, then out of respect, of course, will listen to the advice, do it right, but will remain at its opinion. I think she will embody some of my dreams. If she goes into art and if she is really talented, I will help her, of course. But if you go to another world - and there will be a leader. Now he goes to the kindergarten with children a year older and does not give a grudge to himself.
S.R. What is the most difficult thing for you in upbringing? Lack of time. For example, in order to properly rest, we need to go somewhere together with my wife and lie there under the palm tree and listen to the sound of the sea. At us so it is impossible: because of that that we seldom see the daughter, we always take it with ourselves. In winter there were two weeks in Thailand, there was no rest as such. I'm tied to Natasha, she's to my daughter, and we all followed one another in a circle. But we were together!
