Now Elena Biryukova, known for the TV series "Sasha plus Masha", the films "Military Hospital", "The Ideal Wife" and others, has a family idyll: two daughters, moreover, she gave birth to the second at the age of 40, and (after several unsuccessful attempts) happy family relationships.
But at the age of 31, when the eldest daughter of the actress was still a baby, and the second marriage was bursting at the seams, since her husband was in constant departures and did not pay due attention to either her or her daughter, she was practically saying goodbye to life.
Then the doctors found a tumor in Elena. They said that with a probability of 50 percent - cancer. They sent me for an operation, and for a start they gave me advice to "cry".
She sobbed for a day - first of all, because she would not see how her daughter was growing. And then I went to other doctors. I had to go through a lot of research and have an operation. As a result, the tumor, fortunately, turned out to be benign.
The second marriage had to be “operated on”, which Elena tried to save for 7 years, but in vain. Then she took her daughter Sasha, who was then in third grade, left her husband and rented an apartment.
Ironically, Ilya, the ex-husband of Elena's friend, actress Ekaterina Klimova, helped her move. Subsequently, the man who struck Biryukova visiting a friend became her husband.
True, I had to take a "blessing" from Catherine for this marriage. Now Biryukova jokes that she and Klimova have "one husband for two." It is interesting what fate brought them together at the birthday party of the daughter of Ilya and Catherine.
Then the girls from previous marriages became friends, and a friend "gave the go-ahead" to marry her ex-husband, and when Elena and Ilya went to Cambodia to "renew their feelings", they returned from there not only with a new impulse in relations, but also with their daughter Aglaya whom Elena gave birth to at the age of 41.
Why the actress agreed to the first two marriages, how she survived in a hostel in the hungry 1990s and managed to gain 15 kilograms from hunger, which is why she tried three times to leave the Mayakovsky Theater, and for which Elena was thanked by her first husband during the divorce, she told in the program "The fate of a man with Boris Korchevnikov" on the TV channel "Russia 1".
