In December 2011, Bledans married producer Aleksandr Semin. Then, in April the following year she gave birth to her second son, Semyon Syomin. His parents, however, call him “Sunny”, which is a common nickname for children who, like him, are born with Down syndrome.
Despite knowing about some of the difficulties of raising a child with Down syndrome, Bledans was determined to make the best of the situation. She took classes shortly after Sunny was born to learn how best to cope with his condition. And within a few years the actor was using her platform to inspire others in the same position.
