In April 2016 they became parents of a son and their daughter was born in January 2021. They also talked about their unusual love in an interview with spot on news about their book “Rebels love loud” (2020):
“We decided 100 percent for each other right from the start. We were together for two months and I got pregnant – that was wanted, we wanted that. After half a year we got married because we said that through having a child we will be bound together forever. And with our last transformation – our completely identical tattoos – we gave it all a new image. We never thought about it for long, but decided on this love.
