Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife First Lady Olena Zelenska revealed how their marriage has become much stronger since Russia invaded their country. In a televised exclusive interview with Piers Morgan on Talk TV, the couple said the war has brought them closer and “more interested” in each other. The show aired on Tuesday evening featuring Zelensky and his wife sitting down on a set in Kyiv as they discussed their relationship with Morgan.

According to The Sun, the interview unveiled a lot of candid details between husband and wife that had the Ukrainian leader chuckling throughout the show. When asked about his opinion of their marriage and if the current situation between Ukraine and Russia has affected their relationship, Zelensky agreed with the theory that any marriage gets stronger when faced with challenges.

“We have got something else to say to each other, that is why I wish that this challenge can make us more united.”

The First Lady then turned to her husband to ask him the same question. Zelensky replied, 'My answer wouldn't be different.'

His wife quipped, “You should have your own opinion about it.”

The president chuckled and said, “When you are next to me, your opinion has priority!”

“But I would say, I don't have any other experience, I've got only one wife and I am happy," Zelensky added.

In another part of the interview, Morgan pointed out how Zelensky managed to miss out on telling his wife about his plans to run for president. The First Lady said, “He forgot.” Zelenska recalled how she only found out about this while watching her husband announce his candidacy on a New Year’s Eve variety show in 2018. "You forgot to tell your wife you were running for president? What were you thinking?" Morgan gasped at the president.

The former comedian turned politician sheepishly grinned as he explained how that decision had been quite difficult for his family and that he knew they would not allow him to pursue his intentions. “ would be a tough call, it’s not a joke. These are serious matters. My family wasn’t prepared to let me go…"

The First Lady then interrupted her husband, “He understood that probably I wouldn’t have been fond of this idea and that it would take very difficult negotiations with me.”

Not wanting to lose the momentum of a perfect opportunity to put the Ukrainian leader in good light with his wife, Morgan interjected, "Mr. President, this is your opportunity to apologize to your wife."

Zelensky did not waste a minute and turned to face his wife, "OK. I’m sorry!" the leader addressed the First Lady and then the couple both broke into laughter.

Post-interview, a chuckling Zelensky revelled in the moment of having to publicly apologize to his wife. "That’s the most I’ve laughed in five months!"
