There seems to be so many rumors and assumptions, that it is hard to know what is true or not; and not just stuff from the internet.Originally Posted by eyria
Artur was not married in February of 1992 only recently engaged.
His son was born in September of 1992-so he probably only found out about the baby a few weeks before.
While I feel bad for Natalia if she had a crush on Artur; it's not his fault if he didn't love her, or even if he didn't realize that she had a crush on him-if she even did.
Natasha & Artur are both still married to their spouses-and have both worked with them off/on the ice.
They both seem happy with their current life.
Natasha is still married to Craig Shepard; they did some pro shows/comps back in the 1990s.
They also did some coaching together. Natalia during the coaching & Craig doing the off ice training.
Natalia now coaches/head of a figure skating program in Texas; she's a US citizen.
