After 25 years of marriage, Natalia and Vitali Klitschko announce in August of this year that they are getting a divorce. Both emphasize that despite everything, they have a “very good relationship with each other”. But in addition to the spatial separation, there is now also a linguist.
For more than 25 years she was Natalia Klitschko, the wife of the former world boxing champion and current mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko. But after the divorce from her estranged husband, that should be the end. She wants to go back to her birth name: Natalia Yegorova. The 48-year-old told the “Mirror” in an interview. “I’m going back to my previous last name,” she said.
People should know that she went by the name Klitschko, but she doesn’t want to be called the “ex-wife” for years to come. “I want them to say: this is Natalia Yegorova, who we have called Natalia Klitschko for 25 years,” said the 48-year-old.
In mid-August 2022, Vitali Klitschko and Natalia Yegorova announced their divorce. This was done by mutual consent, the divorce had already been filed. They have a “very good relationship” and respect each other. But you have been living separately in different cities for a long time; Vitali in Kyiv, Natalia in Hamburg.
In 1996, the then sports professional and former model Natalia Yegorova married. They had three children: their son Yegor-Daniel was born in 2000, followed by Elizabeth-Victoria (2002) and Max (2005) – named after the German boxing icon Max Schmeling.
