Everything you need to know about Martina and Julia’s marriage is below…
Martina Navratilova’s Wife
Julia Lemigova, a member of The Real Housewives of Miami, is Martina’s husband. Although the 50-year-old was raised in Miami with a professional athlete, she was actually born in Moscow, Russia. Julia is a former beauty pageant champion who, according to Bravo, was notable for being the last Miss USSR in 1990.
The stunning brunette later represented the Soviet Union in the Miss Universe pageant in 1991, finishing in second place. Following her time in pageants, Julia started her own business, the Joiya Spa, in 2003.

The TV personality introduced a skincare and beauty brand called Russie Blanche a few years later in 2009. The multi-talented woman also worked as a model from 1991 to 2005, when she gave birth to her first kid.
Martina Navratilova Marriage
Since saying “I do” in 2014, Julia and Martina have been wed for almost ten years. When Julia joined the Real Housewives franchise in 2021, she even created history on Bravo TV as the first open LGBT cast member of a Real Housewives franchise.
She frequently mentions Martina in her Instagram photos, making her marriage to the 66-year-old highly public. On Jan. 2, 2023, Julia took to her social media to post a selfie with her wife, along with a sweet caption:
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out to share words of support. Together, we will fight this. ”

The snapshot was seemingly in reference to the news that Martina had two forms of canceɼ, which was reported by the WTA that same day. The tennis star was diagnosed with breἀst canceɼ, along with throat canceɼ. She said via a statement to the outlet:
“This double whammy is serious but still fixable, I’m hoping for a favorable outcome. It’s going to stink for a while, but I’ll fight with all have I got.”
Fortunately, Martina declared she was “canceɼ free” in March 2023. Martina had previously been given a breast canceɼ diagnosis in 2010, according to the WTA, thus this was not her first canceɼ diagnosis.
Are They Have Kids?
In addition to being wed, Martina and Julia are loving parents. In 1999, Julia gave birth to her first child with the late billionaire Édouard Stern. Sadly, according to The Daily Mail, their son Maximilien Stern pἀssed away when he was just a baby. Julia later gave birth to two daughters, Emma, now 15, and Victoria, now 22.
The former pageant winner said her daughters supported her coming out, as reported by NBC News:
“When I saw my two girls standing up to their friends and saying, ‘Yeah, we have two moms,’ and I saw them, and it’s like, ‘Oh my god. My girls came out faster than me!’ And then it was like, ‘Boom, boom.’ I never, ever looked back,”
