    Congratulations to them! Anastasia is a beautiful name.

    I confess I read the title as "Maya Usova is mean" at first, and thought, "Is this off season EVER going to end?" :lol:

    Arthur Werner’s words: One of the best (ice) dancers of her times, my old love, Maya Usova, gave birth to a daugher, who was imediately named Anastasiya by Maya’s husband. And she (Maya) is 46 years old! Good-going, Maya!

    And someone once said, of Maya Usova, "No gold medal, no husband, no baby." The implication being not having the second two was worse. :D Guess someone spoke too soon.

    Maya Usova is 46 years old. That makes me feel so old - she and Alexander Zhulin were one of my favorite dance teams when I really became a fan of the sport.

    Congratulations.

    What a coincidence, I was just wondering about Maya today and wondering what she's doing now.
    Congratulations to Maya!

    Too funny Jayar.

    I am so happy for Maya. I remember reading interviews where she said she wanted to be a mom. And now she's had a baby at 46-- that's awesome!!!

    I hope we get to see some photos.

    I can't describe how happy I am to hear the news. Maya is such an amazing ice dancer and a great person too - she has been through a lot of crap in her life and deserves happiness. I am so happy for her! Becoming a Mom was on of her biggest dreams. Congrats! :)

    I think Maya is my favourite dancer ... I *think* ... they were an amazing team and she had the "IT" factor IMO. Great to hear she's become a mommy!
