Dmitry Brekotkin is the father of two adult daughters. The girls did not follow in his footsteps and did not want to be creative. Dmitry has excellent relations with children, despite the divorce from his wife Catherine.
Dmitry Brekotkin and his path to success
Dmitry Brekotkin - Russian film and television actor, TV presenter, member of the creative team "Ural dumplings". He was born in 1970 in Sverdlovsk. As a child, Dmitry was fond of several sports, but then settled on the sambo section. Brekotkin was engaged in sambo very seriously and became a candidate for master of sports.
After leaving school, Dmitry served in the army, and then entered the Polytechnic University. He did not like his studies and he went to the faculty called "Mechanical processing of non-ferrous metals" only because he had the smallest competition. As a result, two years later, Brekotkin was expelled for academic failure. Dmitry managed to work as a handyman at a construction site.
Studying at the institute was not in vain and it determined the further fate of the future comedian. In the student construction brigade, Dmitry met Sergei Ershov and Dmitry Sokolov. Sergey has been a member of the Uralskiye Pelmeni team since its inception, and he helped a new acquaintance become a member of it. Brekotkin joined the team and did not leave it even after being expelled from a higher educational institution. In 1995, the Uralskiye Pelmeni team broke into the Higher League of KVN. They played in it until 2007, and after that Dmitry began to try himself in various television projects - "Yuzhnoye Butovo", "Show News" and others. Brekotkin starred in several films. Critics praised his acting skills in the film "Pisaki".
At the end of 2018, Dmitry Brekotkin, Sergey Ershov, Dmitry Sokolov and other participants of the "Ural dumplings" presented a new program "Husband for Right Now". Dmitry also tried himself as a TV presenter. He has many plans for the future and has a desire to master a new profession.
Personal life and the birth of children
Dmitry Brekotkin always believed that he was lucky with his wife. While still a student, he met his future wife, Catherine. The girl turned out to be very smart and reliable. In 1997, she gave birth to a daughter, Anastasia, and in 2007, the second daughter of the Brekotkins, Elizaveta, was born.
Catherine always supported her husband, even when he was expelled from the university and he was forced to work at a construction site. Dmitry is grateful to his family for their faith in him and their help. He believes that children helped him become who he became. They gave him a powerful incentive to move forward. After becoming a father, he could no longer afford to work in a low-paid job.
After the birth of their first child, the family decided to move back to Yekaterinburg. Living in Moscow was very expensive for them. Dmitry lived in two cities for many years. In the capital, he worked and took part in all the projects that were offered to him.
Children of Dmitry Brekotkin
Dmitry Brekotkin has always been and remains a good father. Despite the problems in the family, he was able to maintain excellent relations with adult daughters. In 2017, it became known about the separation of the comedian from his wife. They divorced peacefully, without scandals and loud division of property.
Dmitry admitted in an interview that he is very proud of his daughters. He also wanted a son, for a long time he persuaded his wife to give birth to his third child, but his wife did not want this. Perhaps this was one of the reasons for the separation.
The eldest daughter Anastasia was engaged in synchronized swimming, but in the end did not want to connect her life with sports. She chose for herself a more serious economic specialty, graduated not only from the university, but also graduate school. Younger Elizabeth sang in the choir as a child, studied music. She is a creative person and has already managed to try herself in various directions.
It is much easier for Dmitry Brekotkin to communicate with his youngest daughter. He and Elizabeth are "on the same wavelength."The comedian even offered to arrange her in one of the television projects. But the youngest daughter categorically does not want to be popular with her father.
