    Say,do we know of any Pairs Skaters who have kids? Either the Partnership,or just 1 of the Partners from a Partnership who happens to be a Parent? For example...does Amanda Evora have kids?

    Kristy Sargeant has a kid, but I think it was with someone else other than Kris Wirtz. It seems like both partners raise her though.

    From the times past- both Irina Rodnina and Katya Gordeeva interrupted their competitive career to have a child, and then came back and became Olympic Gold medalists ( Rodnina for the third time, Gordeeva for the second time)

    actually gordeeva was already PRO when she became preggo with daria =) and she joined the SOI tour weeks after birth! she is one tough cookie!
    i think it is obvioulsy much easier for a male partner to have a child and skate that a mama!! but isabelle delobel skated in the 2010 olympics after her son was born ( was he like 6 months?)

    Katya and Sergei went pro in 1991, Daria was born in 1992, but then they returned to win 1994 Olympics (it was allowed then).

    Can't think of any active skaters except Ladwig - most of them are either young or wouldn't want to end/take a break from their careers. Among retired skaters, other than those already mentioned, Artur Dimitriev Jr. was born in 1992, so obviously during his father's eligible career.

    Pairs skater only? No ice dancers? Because I can think of several ice dancers who had kids while in eligible skating (and among active skaters, Dimitri Soloviev has a son).

    Actually no senior pairs guy would have to take a break from their career to have a baby and they are all old enough to father a child ;)

    I could have phrased it in a way that made it clear what was in reference to the men and what to the ladies, but I trusted in the intelligence of the readers. :D

    While I'm sure all the male senior pairs skaters are biologically old enough to have children, that's not the same thing is being ready to have children.

    Kristy had a second child with Kris, the child would be at least five now.

    And Sale and Pelletier have a child, a boy - they brought the baby on ice during Canadians in Vancouver in 08 (think 08?) when they were inducted into the Hall of Fame. Sale was raving about how great a dad David was. . .this was before the split, of course.

    Peggy Schwarz had a kid an then continued competig. Also her partner Mirko Mueller had a kid when he competed with another pair in 2002. I remember seeing the kid and Mirko´s beautiful wife Diana Goolsbee, in Lausanne 2002. The baby was adorable.
    (So was Mirko:eek:).

    Barb Underhill had twins (after competing) and as I recall one drowned in a swimming pool. There is a foundation in the baby's (Stephanie) name.

    Larisa Selezneva and Oleg Makarov, 1984 Olympic Pairs bronze medalists from the Soviet Union, are the parents of Ksenia Makarova, 2010 Russian National ladies champion and Olympian, and a son, Aleksey.

    Here's an article about Ksenia before the 2010 Olympics: http://www.goldenskate.com/articles/2009/010810.shtml

    Irina Rodnina took 1979 off to have a baby. This made way for Tai and Randy to win Worlds. Tai Babilonia had a son quite a few years later.

    Isabelle Brasseur and Rocky Marval got married and have a daughter. They've skated some exhibitions with her.

    Maxim Marinin had a son with his girlfriend, a ballerina, shortly after he finished competing.
    And Tatiana Totmianina had a daughter with Alexei Yagudin a year and a half ago.
    Elena Berezhnaya has 2 children with Steven Cousins
    Ingo Steuer also has a young son.

    Calla Urbanski has a little girl. I remember her saying that she would have to gain some weight :eek: in order to get pregnant. These pairs girls have such low body fat...I worry for them.

    His partner was Sarah Jentgens. They skated together from 2000 to 2002.

    On the pro side, there's Leonova & (sp?)Kvalkho. They're still performing, too. He skated without her in Brian Boitano's Skating Spectacular when she was pregnant.
