I hadn't heard that Steven had split up from his wife Kristina Lenko (Danny Moir's former partner) lol but I guess so if he's gonna marry Elena Berezhnaya. Anyways, I think Lena and Steven are a great couple so congrats to them.

Olympic Champion Elena Berezhnaya is going to get married. Lena has never told about her fiance until now. She has only hinted: "It seems to me, that I have met the person whom I am ready to connect my life with, and to create a family with. I will not say his name yet, it's too early … "
Today though she has unexpectedly released this secret. We talked to Lena about her project on the First channel "Stars on Ice" where Berezhnaya danced with actor Alexander Nosik. And then we touched the topic about future projects.
"Maybe, I'll get married soon" - she said (And her face was shining).
And then Lena told us about her fiance. It's Englishman, Steven Cousins. He is 34 years old, he is an eight-time Great Britain champion in figure skating. Lena and Steven have known each other for many years, they met each other at different competitions and shows. But for a long time they were just friends. And then something began to happen.
"Steven took the initiative, and I just have drifted with the current" - she said (she smiles again)
Journalist (J): And did you fall in love with him?
Lena (L): Falling in love - this feeling is not for me, it's kind of shady... I simply understood very well: Yes, this is the man I would like to spend many, many years with! Steven is very good man!
J: Did he propose to you?
L: He doesn't need to officially propose, I don't need this! If it's needed, I can propose!
J: Lena, what language do you use while talking to each other?
L: I know English quite well, so we can talk about everything. Though sometimes there are not enough words... But Steven is learning Russian now. He wants to understand my world better, to understand what are we talking about in my country, he wants to communicate with my relatives and friends.
J: Has he met your mother already?
L: Not yet, but they call each other. Steven dials the number and shouts into the receiver (in Russian): "Hey, mom! How are you?" My mom likes to talk to him very much, and I think that they will meet each other soon.
J: You probaby do not get to see him often?
L: Unfortunately, yes. We communicate more on the phone or send each other many, many messages. Or we write each other by e-mail. But he'll come to see me soon.
J: When are you going to get married?
L: I don't know yet. I think, we'll skate one more season, and then get married. While want to make some money first while people need us for shows. Later we won't be able to skate, at least, not me: family, kids, Pampers...
J: Where are you going to live? Are you going to move to England for keeps?
L: Not for keeps. We will live everywhere. We'll have several houses. It's much more interesting - the atmosphere will always change.
J: Lena, do you want your kids to repeat your destiny and become figure skaters?
L: I don't know. It's not very difficult to teach the kid how to skate. But will they be figure skaters? Time will show - will they want it? Will they have the talent? I will not insist - let them do what they want. I know for sure that I will not make anyone to do something. Maybe, because of my soft character I would never be able to become a coach. I will not be able to force somebody, to scream at somebody. I maybe would tell to my students: "You don't like this? Ok, then go home, read a book" But if Steven and I have a boy, he will play soccer for sure. Because Steven likes this sport very much and plays it very good, too.
J: What did Steven give you for your birthday?
L: His gift hasn't got here yet. But I asked him to get me a real uniform of his favorite soccer team "Liverpool". It should be my size, of course. So in the summer I will sport a company liverpool uniform.
J: And what did Anton Sikharulidze present to you as a Birthday gift?
L: I wanted Anton to present me with a phone, so he did. We've been together so many years and we know each other so well that we don't surprise each other with the gifts, we just tell each other what we want as a gift! Anton wanted me to give him a watch for his birthday so I did.
J: Are you preparing to do any shows now?
L: Yes, we are. We'll skate at different shows soon. Right now we are training. But everybody Anton and I train alone. We are not able to meet and train together. We meet each other only during the shows. And when every of us will make his own private life, we will see each other even more rarely. The new life starts for me and Anton.
