Alexander Ovechkin: Married to Nastya Shubskaya

After dating for three years, Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin got engaged to his then-girlfriend, Russian tennis pro Maria Kirilenko, in December 2012. By July of 2014, the engagement was off, but Ovechkin wasn’t back on the market for long. He was engaged again, this time to Russian model and actress Nastya Shubskaya, in September the following year.

The two got married in a small wedding in Russia last summer, which sent both the Russian tabloids and the hockey community as a whole into a frenzy. And while Shubskaya is well-known for her modeling work, her parents are probably even more famous. Her mother, Vera Glagoleva is a film star who has appeared in 33 movies and has directed a handful of others, and her dad, Kirill Shubsky, is a prominent ship-builder, well known within the industry.
