About the first husband Ilya Khoroshilov
We studied in the same school, this love of youth is a first. It all ended with a marriage, and our daughter Elizabeth is already a daughter – she is 18 years old. It is impossible to believe. Ilya is a hereditary jeweler, so to speak. His father – Uncle Vitya, as I called him – was a jeweler. And Ilya took an apprentice, and he started doing something with his own hands very early on – chains. Then he continued indefinitely in the footsteps of his father. Ilya, by the way, is such a prophet. When I decided to enter the theater, I remember we were standing on the porch, it was raining and I told him that I wanted to go to the theater institute. And he said, “Well, now you will become an actress and you will leave me.” And at that time, he said it with such confidence that I immediately believed that I could go to university at that time. But we did not leave immediately: there was still an army, then he returned from the army. In total, we have been in a relationship for about 12 years.

Ilya loved me, and so did I, as I thought. It was a very comfortable relationship. And we still have a warm relationship. Humanly, we could not lose sight of ourselves, we remained friends. What didn’t happen with Igor Petrovich (Igor Petrenko – Klimova’s second husband. – Approx. Ed.). We have had civilized relationships, but we are not close to each other in spirit and never will be.

About Igor Petrenko’s second husband
It was a strong feeling for me. I would never dare destroy my family, deprive Liza of such happiness – a harmonious family, an example of a lifetime: mom and dad. All of this, of course, was destroyed by me. And I entered this relationship, without looking, without looking back. And it is not in vain, of course. We had two wonderful sons. This relationship was generally special to me. At the time, it seemed like it was my destiny once and for all. And my life in this sense is over, and I will never have a relationship again. We sort of grew up together. Therefore, it was probably difficult to leave. Until we broke into pieces at the bottom, we did not break into many small fragments. When they have become normal people again, they have become completely different. And these two people would not have turned around in the crowd, having seen each other, the spark would not have run between them, because they had become different. And in this life, yes, it was such a strong feeling.
Ekaterina Klimova and Igor Petrenko
Ekaterina Klimova with sons Matvey and Korney and daughters Lisa and Bella Ekaterina Klimova admitted that feelings between her and Igor Petrenko exploded on the set of the Windows series in Moscow. At the time, the two were married and did not allow themselves to be together. However, a year after filming ended, Petrenko called Klimova and invited her to be together.
I am internally behind monogamy. I cannot communicate with several men at the same time. My heart is indivisible and, of course, it is unbearable – to deceive a person who is not indifferent to you. I don’t know how I was still alive after that, it was not easy. When we just broke up, stopped communicating, it was a decision made by the mind. I couldn’t do this in relation to my family, his family. We shouldn’t do that, it’s wrong, it’s kind of a whim, it’s going to pass. But when a year later Igor called me, and I heard his voice, in my opinion, there were no more questions, because I had been waiting for this call all year. During this period, Igor broke up with his wife, then I left my husband. I always had a feeling of guilt towards Ilya. I shouldn’t have done that to her, because Ilya is a very good and kind person, and I love her in my own way,
– shared the actress.
