Photo of The Day: Sakis and Katia just married! Congratulations
GREECE – Sakis Rouvas met model Katia Zygouli back in 2003 during the shootings of a commercial ad for Vodafone and the two of them became a couple. They kept their relationship away from the media despite the rumors and Rouvas first confirmed their relationship during a radio interview to Natalia Germanou.
On June 2008, Rouvas announced Zygouli’s pregnancy and on November 2, 2008, Zygouli gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter baptized Anastasia after her father on October 18, 2009. Her godmother was Emmanouela Pavlatou, a friend of Melina Mercouri, and the baptismal date was chosen to coincide with Mercouri’s birthday. Anastasia’s birth was extensively covered by the media. In a Star Channel interview with Eleonora Meleti, Rouvas said: “Marriage is not in our plans. We don’t think of it even though it is expected by society based on how we are all raised here in Greece. We are happy enough at the moment that we don’t plan a marriage.” However, in May 2010 Zygouli appeared wearing a diamond engagement ring without an engagement announcement.
On October 15, 2011, Rouvas and Zygouli became parents for the second time to a son, named Alexandros. The couple’s third child and second daughter, named Ariadni, arrived on January 3, 2013. The couple welcomed their fourth child, on 21 April 2016.
