Re: Back...for now. aka the Girlfriend thread

Via Instagram, en route to Paris, where La Garifullina will perform on Bastille Day. Hope he remembers to attend his ITHF induction ceremony.

In Paris yesterday, via @aidagarifullina. According to Russian gossip websites like Spletnik, they are expecting.

I'd say the rumours are not without foundation.

Re: Back...for now. aka the Girlfriend thread

I'd say I am not surprised....you see this kind of stuff happening all the time. long on and off relation...they break up.... guy(usually) finds a new girl fast bam pregnant/married. this is exactly what I was thinking before checking the forum. that she must be pregnant soon (if not yet) in the first pictures you posted here I kinda sensed that Marat was in his let's get serious mode.

Congrats! he always said he wanted kids

I would love to see that!

Yes indeed. It was kind of weird - if that's the right word - to see him being demonstratively affectionate towards a woman, as opposed to being the usual passive recipient of worshipful female attention.

I sort of feel bad for Anna as well. Never a good idea to "go back" for a second or third go. Relationships usually end for a good reason. Very, very, very rarely can they be successfully resuscitated.

FWIW it's a spectacularly bad idea to decide to have a kiddie during a whirlwind romance, even if you're financially secure. The loved-up, starry-eyed stage doesn't last, as he well knows. If by some miracle they find themselves happily compatible when it wears off, then fair play to them. But it's a hell of a gamble, especially for a woman, to take.

I often wonder if that was just a family-friendly, Putin-pandering remark to recommend himself to the electorate during the 2011 primaries. His reputation preceded him, after all.

Also, it's one thing to say you want kids, another to live with the reality of having created them, and created their utter dependence on you. Children need love, stability, and (at the risk of sounding totally sanctimonious) two well-matched, behaviourally predictable, mutually supportive, *mature* adults as parents, who are committed to each other for the long haul. People (especially players, playboys etc.) don't just suddenly change their ways overnight. I mean, it just doesn't happen.

No, not really. This story appeared in the Russian yellow press from way back in 2009 (?), which Safin refuted as a complete fabrication. For some reason, it's been taken as gospel in some sections of the Russian celebrity gossip mill. Even if true, it's not really anyone's business but his, IMO.

Re: Back...for now. aka the Girlfriend thread

She is much less hard-faced than the Anna one. She looks like if she were chocolate she'd eat herself, though.

Bit strange to see him like that. Never before did I thought he looked that in love, but he looks it.

I wonder if he is contactable in a professional sense. Does anyone know?

I think his tastes naturally run to dainty little dolls (cf. Elena Korikova). And yes, he looks absolutely smitten! I don't know why, but I always thought he would end up with an artiste (as he has with A.G.), someone more, shall we say, culturally advanced. I do hope they give their offspring a thorough musical education. With hands like his, Marat might have been another Rostropovich or (whispers reverently) Rachmaninov.

Apart from writing to him at the State Duma, where incoming post must surely be heavily vetted, I can't think of anything except via one of his assistants. He seems to use his twitter account solely for public holiday greetings etc.

Re: Back...for now. aka the Girlfriend thread

Regarding these baby rumors..... I was looking at the newest pictures taken at the ITHF and there is a high quality one of his new tattoos, including the one that looks like a molecule. I noticed it had the date 20/01/2016 and on a hunch I googled "baby molecule"
And well, 😅😅, the results match his tattoo : the molecule is DMT which is a powerful hallucinogenic drug, which can be created synthetically but which interestingly is also produced naturally in large quantity during the first 28 days of "life/creation" of a baby.

Hence you can buy baby clothes with that molecule on it, etc.....

Coincidences ?!? Me think not! 😇😇😇 (that would also explain why Ms Garifullina wasn't at Marat's induction, she wouldn't be authorized to go on such a long , transatlantic flight if she is indeed in her third trimester of pregnancy!)

Re: Back...for now. aka the Girlfriend thread

^ Yes, when I saw the date, I thought it had something to do with the baby's inception date, particularly as it tallies with the number of months that Garifullina has been reported as pregnant.

Well done on the molecule research.

Wonder when he will officially confirm?!

Ah, ah, thanks ! I'm a bit of a nerd like that and I'm a huge tattoo lover (got a few myself) so I'm always interested in Marat's new tattoos! With the ITHF photos I noticed that besides the molecule and the Ouroboros, both of which I had noticed before, he also has a combination of a compass and a few other symbols on the other side of his arm with the molecule.
I shall have to look into it further ��☺️

Bonus Trivia : if anybody has seen the movie Lucy with Scarlett Johansson, the imaginary drug that makes her go "super human" is based on this DMT molecule

I don't think he will ever confirm before the birth they will probably go magazine cover full spread....

I agree with everything you said I just didn't want to quote all that you wrote. I agree with the too soon baby, especially given the obvious overlap between the relationships. Anna and him are very good actors to keep the charade going for sooooo long. Maybe they had a contract? so yes from a woman point of view this all sounds like a bad idea, but I really want to root for Aida and Marat. And YES I always refused to believe although evidence suggested differently that he didn't want a more intellectual relationship. (thinking back Dasha likes and is running artistic circles so the clues were there since then).

PS: Baby thread- girlfriend thread no more

London14 : Nice attention to detail I am never bothered to do this kind of investigation

Wouldn't that be wonderful. I imagine he'll stay in politics if re-elected, though, and if she wants to keep her career going, they'll need "staff" - nannies, tutors, trainers - or grandparents at the very least. One of them will have to re-locate at any rate. He to Vienna, or she to Moscow.

I'll re-christen the thread (geddit? ), by common consent of course, only when there's living proof in Hello! magazine.

As for "girlfriend", call me cynical, but won't there always be one? somewhere in the background, in some form or other? He has built up a mighty reputation over the years, which will take more than a baby to dislodge.
