Evgeni Plushenko and Yana Rudkovskaya are expecting a baby!

- "Yes, I'm pregnant" - admitted Yana Rudkovskaya in an interview for "Hello!", Russian magazine.

- "Long ago we wanted a child, and finally it happened" - said Evgeni Plushenko.

According to Rudkovskaya, doctors predict childbirth between 30th of December and 3rd of January, while her own birthday is on January 2nd (as her mother's too).

- "If you all have the birthdays on January 2nd, it would be easier for me - I'd buy all the gifts in bulk, come as Santa Claus with a sack and congratulate you all!" - said Plushenko laughing .

So far, the couple does not know whether they will have a boy or a girl. But Rudkovskaya dreams of a daughter.

- I said to Zhenya: "Let's agree, if it will be a girl, then we will stop." But he said: "No, let's continue, because children should be a lot!", - said Yana.

Doctors will tell gender of child to Evgeni and Yana for a couple of weeks.
