A confident 30-year-old man at first glance has subdued the 17-year-old student. A year later, the director invited the girl to come together. According to the artist herself, she never took these relations seriously. The social statuses of their families were so far away that parents initially did not believe in the prospects of marriage of young people. Yegor Konchalovsky was in no hurry to offer his hand and heart, concentrating his efforts on promoting his beloved's career. The director shot Lyubov Tolkalina in her works, insisted on her teaching foreign languages, but never decided to officially enter a civil wife in the Mikhalkovs' family. The idea to formalize relations did not visit Yegor Konchalovsky, even after the couple had a daughter, Masha, in 2001. In a civil marriage, they lived for 10 years, after which they decided to disperse. At the same time, the former spouses agreed not to advertise the parting.
"We live with Egor all our lives on the principle: I'm free, you're free. In addition, friendship in the family is more important than love "- this is how the artist commented on the situation with her husband. Officially, the separation was announced only in January 2017.

"The novice actress panicked, informing the news to her husband. Yegor Konchalovsky strongly supported his beloved. A few years after the birth of Masha, Lyubov thought about the second child. Doctors said that for a normal gestation a 55-kilo grammage artist should collect 15 kg. The natural tendency to leanness did not allow the TV star to bring the physiological parameters to the recommended values, so the idea of repeated delivery had to be abandoned.
The novel with Vyacheslav ManucharovIn 2010, when Tolkalina and Konchalovsky decided to put the relationship on a pause, Love was invited to the film "The Chronicles of Treason." On the set, fate brought her with Vyacheslav Manucharov. Initially the artist's contacts were limited to the solution of working moments, but soon turned into a turbulent romance that lasted several months. As it turned out, Manucharov is married, and his wife is on the last term of pregnancy. Tolkalina decided not to break someone else's family and stopped non-working communication with a colleague. Vyacheslav almost immediately switched attention to Anna Semenovich. However, the effective blonde turned out to be too tough for him. "On such women, you need to immediately marry, which of my husband?" I'm shivering from the single word "wedding" - confessed in an interview Manucharov.
Is Love Tolkalina married Alexei Makarov?"I married Makarov!" - with such a statement, Tolkalina made a speech in May 2017. The artist hastened to reassure the audience, reassured that the marriage was not real, and tried on the ring for the sake of filming in the project of the STS channel.

Love Tolkalina and daughter Masha (photo)Maria is a pride and an outlet for the stellar mother. A tight shooting schedule did not allow Lyubov to give the girl much attention, so Masha grew up as a self-sufficient and completely independent girl. "She has a sign on her door" It's forbidden to forbid ", she does not listen to me at all!" - Tolkalina laughs.
Outwardly, Masha is like her father, but her mother's character. Once uncompromising and obstinate, peculiar to Lubov, almost cost the girl's life. On the dispute jumping from the roof, Masha got a compression fracture of the spine. Tolkalina still blames herself for carelessness, because of which she did not prevent the tragedy, so she tries not to press on the teenager again. For example, do not ask her daughter to lose weight or stop listening to strange music.
With an adult daughter, the actress maintains a warm, trusting relationship. Although the 16-year-old girl reluctantly shares with her mother details of her personal life, but listens to her opinion on key issues such as the place of further study. The actress supports all the beginnings of the teenager, even the adventurous type of the case, when for the sake of experiment the daughter lost a few kilograms.
