“It’s everything. Starting from waking up in the morning, to doing their hair, making breakfast, taking them to school, doing activities … just being a dad, it’s an amazing thing,” Savchenko, 37, said in the interview. “It’s funny because when we were together, with Elena, I didn’t have that much time with them. Because either I was on tour, or on the season, and we had a full-time nanny.”
Now, Savchenko’s focus remains on raising his two girls. What better way to bond than working together on a show everyday?
