Performing at Eurovision can change your career forever and turn you into a treasured national icon. In some cases it can help you find a companion for life as well. And on Thursday Tamara Milanova (néeGachechiladze) celebrated an even bigger achievement, as she welcomed her first son into the world with her husband — the famous Bulgarian composer Borislav Milanov. Congratulations!
Tamara shared the happy news on Instagram, uploading a photo of the babe gripping her hand.
Writing in the Instagram caption, the “Keep the Faith” singer said: “Second year in a row, another angel has come to my life! #EliaMilanov”.
Congratulations have already been pouring in, with people sending their best wishes in the comments of Tamara’s Instagram post.
Borislav also shared his joy, writing on Facebook: “Yesterday my son was born and now my daughter Gabriela will have a brother to play with her and protect her.”
“May God bless him to grow strong and wise and let his heart be full of love and his mind full of light! Thank you Tamara Milanova.”
The couple’s romance started in 2017, shortly after her performance at the national final in Tbilisi and it continued to blossom in Kyiv. Tamara and Borislav held their wedding in Tbilisi, and celebrated their nuptials in front of close friends. Last year, the couple welcomed their first child, Gabriella.
In a recent interview with Wiwibloggs, Borislav revealed that Gabriella was conceived in between the second semi-final and the grand final during Eurovision 2018 in Lisbon. A proper Eurovision baby!
Tamara performed her song “Keep the Faith” during Semi-Final 1 of Eurovision 2017 but failed to reach the final.
Milanov has competed at the Eurovision Song Contest with several songs, including: Poli Genova’s “If Love Was a Crime”, Equinox’s “Bones”, Kristian Kostov’s “Beautiful Mess”, Tijana Bogićević’s “In Too Deep”, Jana Burčeska’s “Dance Alone” and Cezar Sampson’s “Nobody But You”. This year he had THREE entries — for Malta, Bulgaria and Germany.
The happy couple previously collaborated with each other on the demo of “Bones”, and countless fans mistook Tamara’s mysterious vocals for those of Loreen.
Are you as thrilled as we are for Tamara and Borislav? Let us know down below!
Is it just me or is it a bit against the spirit of the contest for these songwriters like him to represent multiple countries? If the current trends continue (not that this hasn’t been the case for a long time), the whole thing will just become another singing competition for new pretty faces to slot into whatever Borislav, Kikorov or G:son come up with that year.
Well he produces quality songs and without him the contest would have way less quality songs, BUT I do agree that countries like UK, Germany, France, Spain… shouldn’t look for producers outside of their countries since thier music industry is huge… Kirkorov and G:Son and bad producers tho (G:Son with some exceptions)
I absolutely agree but on the other hand, the quality of the songs was never an issue for the contest, until the 2000s. Also, idk why people downvoted this when I’m just raising a question about the direction of the contest. I never put into doubt the songwriting ability of people like Borislav. Bulgaria’s entry is, in fact, my favourite song this year (on which victoria gets top credit as writer, nonetheless). The contest has gone through a lot of rule changes throughout the years and I think we’ve let this phenomenon creep in without much thought. I think it… Read more »
