Lusine Tovmasyan Talks About Pregnancy, Children and Family

Classy.am held an interesting interview with Lusine Tovmasyan, Miss Armenia 2003 and Vice Miss Europe 2005. She told about her family, children and healthy marital relationship.

Can you describe your feelings that you had when giving birth to your second baby?

This time I felt a little bit differently, as I knew what kind of miracle was going to happen. I was more conscious and prepared. And I would say that Ariana was even more impatient compared to us.

Will you be absent from your work for a long time?

I’ll be back to my favorite job very soon.

How did you come up with the names of your children?

My husband and I decided together. I remember that the name Ariana was suggested by Artur, and I agreed immediately. And I was the one who suggested my son’s name.

What is your key to the healthy and strong family relationship?

The most important thing for me is learning to compromise. This is what I have learnt in six years of marriage. As soon as you learn to compromise, everything gets perfect!

The most important piece of advice you give to your children.

It is very important what children learn from their parents in everyday family routine. You cannot bring up them via words. You have to be a role model for them. And it’s more difficult. The kids notice even the smallest details. One of the key advices is being kind.

How do you maintain work-family balance?

I’m sure I couldn’t do that if Artur was not by my side. He tries to be helpful in everything. And he is always on top with that.

How to look perfect when you are a mother of two children?

I cannot say that I take care for my two children alone. I have people by my side who help me with this. But the most important thing is one’s will. If you have a desire, you will definitely find time for yourself.

How would you describe your family?

There is laughter, music and humor in our family.

Your three main rules when raising children.

Kindness, discipline and never telling a lie/truthtelling.

What is the motto of your life?

Treat others as you would like them to treat you.

What is your advice to the future mothers?

At this point, I would very much like to advise their husbands to be more attentive and caring. Pregnancy is very difficult for women both physically and emotionally. And believe me, it is very important to have a caring husband by your side during the pregnancy.
