Vladimir Putin’s celebrity goddaughter Ksenia Sobchak has shared cute footage of her three-year-old son’s first kiss with a girl which took place inside a huge bubble.
Former presidential candidate and TV presenter Sobchak, 38, posted the video on Instagram where she boats 7.1 million followers.
In the clip, her three-year-old son Platon is seen pecking his female pal Violetta inside a huge bubble during a birthday party.
President Putin’s pretty goddaughter said: “When you and your friend go into labour at the same time, this is what your children’s birthdays look like.”
The former presidential candidate thanked her close friend, jewellery designer Yana Raskovalova, for bringing her daughter Violetta, 3, to the event.
Netizen ‘AsselAtina’ said: “Your son has so much love in him. I bet he gets kisses all the time at home.”
‘999goddess999’ remarked: “I think the girl is the one who started the kissing. Even at that age she knows what to do.”
‘Mersedes1499’ commented: “Such a cute video.”
Sobchak’s connection with Putin comes through her father Anatoly Sobchak, who reportedly mentored the Russian President and the former Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Anatoly was the first democratically elected mayor of Saint Petersburg, where Putin was born, and was also a professor of law when he first met and became friends with the Russian leader.
His daughter used her famous connections to become a media celebrity, presenting the country’s longest-running TV series ‘Dom-2’ before deciding to launch a political career.
Her prominence among the country’s opposition even led to her attending the National Prayer Breakfast with President Donald Trump in Washington D.C. earlier this year, together with other Russian politicians.
Many have claimed that her close family ties with Putin allowed her more leeway than other political opponents.
