According to Oksana Grigorieva‘s mother Lyudmilla Chernukha, her daughter’s pregnancy was “difficult” amidst the negative media she and her boyfriend Mel Gibson received.
I’m very pleased for her because during her pregnancy she worried a lot because of all the bad press written about her. Lots and lots of lies,” Chernukha says. “Her pregnancy was a hard one even though she had no [medical] problems with it. And, of course, Mel supported her and so did all her friends. She doesn’t make any statements or get involved with refuting what’s said about her. She just tries to keep herself closed off from all the journalists.”
Grigorieva’s pregnancy was announced six weeks after Gibson’s wife of 30 years, Robyn Moore, then 53, filed for divorce. Gibson, 53, and Moore have seven children together. Grigorieva, 39, has a son, Alexander, 12, with James Bond actor Timothy Dalton.
