The news came as a hard pill to swallow for fans who saw the couple as perfect and unbreakable. One can easily remember when they tied the knot in July 2006 and started their journey of love.

Four years later, in November 2010, they welcomed their first child, Olivia. As the years went by, the proud parents did not fail to show off their beautiful girl with several posts on their social media pages.

In May 2017, Samodavona announced she was expecting her second child with a wholesome Instagram photo where she was seen clutching her growing baby bump alongside Savchenko.

In August, the couple welcomed their second daughter, Zlata. To fully experience the blissful time, Savchenko was released from the then ongoing "Dancing With The Stars" tour to spend time with his family.

In the face of the current saddening turn of events, their parental love serves as the only ray of hope.

In a rush, the dancer got on the first available plane from Los Angeles to Sydney. It was later revealed that the dancer was stuck on the 15-hour flight as his wife put to bed. By the time he landed, his beautiful daughter was born.

He explained that as he stood in the airport getting his luggage, he found out about Zlata's arrival into the world. He admitted that it was a mix of feelings as he was both emotional and so happy. Surely, he could not wait to reunite with his wife and the bundle of joy.

In an interview that same year, the love birds opened up about their relationship and how they balanced work and family. Savchenko opined that being married and dancing together for more than ten years taught them how to separate work from home.

The "Dancing With The Stars" pro explained that work was very demanding, but when they were at home, they were just happy husband and wife who loved each other and enjoyed one another's company. He then added that that was the secret to the success of their union.

Unfortunately, with the recent announcement of their breakup, it is clear that their love did not stand the test of time. However, they declared that they still intend to co-parent their children and strive to continue to be the best parents.

Though their love for one another might have dwindled over the years, Savchenko and Samodavona's love for Olivia and Zlata would only wax on stronger. In the face of the current saddening turn of events, their parental love serves as the only ray of hope.
