Childhood, youth and family
Natalya Mogilevskaya (real name Mogila) was born on August 2, 1975 in Kiev. At school, the girl was known as a notorious rebel – her creative nature could not stand the “equalization” of the Soviet school and teachers’ attempts to cut all children with the same brush. Because of this, the teachers and the school administration once sent a delegation that went to the parents of the students with a request to protect the children from communicating with Natasha.

The girl’s father, Alexei Mogila, was the head of production, while he was not a member of the CPSU. Mom, Nina Petrovna, worked in a restaurant at the Intourist Hotel, the only place in those years where foreign guests stayed. Natalia’s parents were very liberal people and did not restrict her freedom of expression, they always supported her daughter’s choice.

When the 16-year-old girl graduated from the nine-year school and entered the local circus variety school, they allowed her to start an independent life in a rented apartment, although the dashing 90s were in the yard, and they had to be pretty worried.
I chose the philosophy of a female director: purposefulness, activity, never complain, never whimper, never admit weakness, achieve the intended goal, go forward, if you want to do well – do it yourself …
Mogilevskaya’s parents are no longer in this world: her father died when Natasha was still very young, and her mother died in 2013. The circumstances of her father’s death are too personal for the singer, so she never talked about them publicly. Natalia has a 10-year-old sister, Oksana, with whom the artist has a very warm relationship.

Six months later, Mogilevskaya admitted that family life did not stick together – before the wedding, the young people saw each other only on weekends, but did not live together at all. A week after the wedding, she realized that living together is very different from episodic meetings. Interestingly, the mother and older sister of Mogilevskaya were against the wedding, but it was not possible to dissuade the girl from marriage.
In 2006, the artist began dating businessman Yegor Dolinin and adopted his three daughters from a previous marriage, Vasilisa, Varvara and Veronika, as her own.
