Talking The Ernests Gulbis 'Family' Album Thread

A few of us recently had an idea to create a thread about Ernests family.

He has an interesting family background as I am sure you are all aware.

Ernests Mum and Dad split when Ernests was very young,around 4 years old.

Ernests is the second child in an extended family of five siblings. The eldest, Elīna, used to attend law school in England. She has since taken up studying for a Masters Degree in Art in Paris while his younger half-sisters, Laura and Monika, play tennis and are amongst the best in their age groups in Latvia. His half-brother, Kristaps,is making a career in golf,at Saddlebrook, Florida.

His mother, Milēna, is a former model and actress. Her CV includes the critically-acclaimed thriller, City Unplugged (Tallinn pimeduses). She is the daughter of Latvian filmmaking great, Uldis Pūcītis.

His father, Ainārs, is an influential businessman who used to play basketball for ASK Riga before being beset with injury. He has now become a staple figure around overseas tournaments, where he almost always travels to accompany Ernests – a reponsibility he shares with Milēna. Milēna often attends DC ties when Ernests is involved.

This is the place to ask questions about Ernests' family and post pics of them together or individually If anyone has up-to-date info from official sources about any member of his family,of course,post that here too.

After I saw that picture EGULBIS found, I of course had to do an internet search of my own & found these pictures.

Valdis Muižnieks, Theobald Kalherts, Alvils Gulbis and Oļģerts Hehts


It seems Papa Gulbis takes his looks after his father!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice holiday. I recently got a beautiful post card from one of my Latvian friends and wanted to share it with you all! As you can see the gorgeous post card is a picture of actors Uldis Pucitis (Ernests' grandfather on his mother's side of the family) and Liga Liepina. (1967)

Hi, guys!
About Ernests grandfather Uldis Pūcītis - I read book about him. It was long time ago, but there are few things I still remember (there were opinions, memories from the people who knew him)like - he was...mmm.. lady killer, almost every day he had different girl (woman) to ''spend time'' with. Only girl he truly loved was his daughter Milena. And slowly he bacame... alcoholic.. it was his biggest problem. He damaged his health..

At the end of that book there was like extract from his diary. Only thing I found about Ernests was his happiness about his little grandson who had grown up like a lovely boy.




Sorry guys about my English, I just wanted to share this with u.

I heard about that book from another friend of mine & she brought up the same points you did! Thanks for posting about it here. I wish I could read that too.His family is filled with creative & interesting people. Alcoholism is something that has effected both sides of his family. I hope that won't be an issue for Ernests in life. I know he likes to party and get drunk but he has also grown a lot in his career and understands he can not have that lifestyle while on tour.
