Kseniya Simonova Husband and Son
We often hear stories of a wife being a carter after her husband’s success. In the case of Kseniya, it is the opposite. If it was not for her husband, she would have been ordinary.

At first, she was unsure; however, she tried it in the lack of other practical options to increase their financial situation. Following that, her husband started exploring better options on the internet. Besides, he traded his printing equipment to purchase 3 kilograms of costly volcanic sand.
Neither Kseniya nor her husband was aware of their big future ahead. In 2009, her husband suggested her to enter the competition Ukraine’s Got Talent where the prize was $110,000. Later, she decided to join the show and won the championship, which changed her life upside down. Together, the couple welcomed their first son, Dmitry on November 27, 2007.
