Legendary Russian actor, Ivan Krasko, married his 24-year-old fiancée, Natalia Shevel, a former student of his, in a secret ceremony attended only by close friends and family yesterday in St Petersburg.

Despite criticism from many, the pair described their relationship in an interview with Russian media, as a 'match made in heaven'.

The couple met while the father-of-six was teaching at a university and Ms Shevel, one of his students, began writing him poetry which he said had made a 'huge impression' on him.

The actor, who has been married three times before, said:

'As a result of her words, I started to feel like a man in a way that I thought had long since vanished. But it was like being rebooted, and something which was missing returned.'

In the interview, shortly before the ceremony, the pair said they feel they cannot spend a single day apart and are living together in the actor's apartment in central Moscow.

Mr Krasko, who will turn 85 in two weeks, added that the relationship prior to their marriage remained platonic, but he now hopes they will have a family together as they 'both wanted children'.

The grandfather-of-three said:

Krasko said he had not yet met her family, although she had been introduced to his sons.

Mr Krasko added one of the first things his sons asked him was who was going to get the family's country estate, but he had assured them that nothing in his will would be changed.

When a journalist implied the marriage was simply a publicity stunt by the young woman to shortcut the usual career ladder by linking herself with a famous fiance, Mr Krasko rejected the idea.
