Don’t worry if you didn’t get an invite to Dancing With the StarsGleb Savchenko‘s birthday party. He’s sharing all the details from his celebration with new girlfriend Elena Belle exclusively with Us Weekly.

The professional dancer celebrated his 38th birthday on Thursday, September 16, with the Swedish model, 36, and his eldest daughter, Olivia, 10, whom he shares with his estranged wife, Elena Samodanova. The three dined at Nusr-Et Steakhouse and “indulged in a nice steak,” a source told Us.

Savchenko’s lady love brought him to a restaurant owned by Salt Bae, where they dined on wagyu tomahawk steak, which the dancer confirmed is as good as it sounds.

“Elena and my daughter Olivia made my birthday very special, I felt very loved,” Savchenko told Us exclusively on Friday, September 17. “Elena sent a cake with a special message. She’s the sweetest! Also, my fans sent me so many amazing messages. I really appreciated it.”

He shared a close-up video of the black and gold three-tier cake she sent him on Instagram. The pastry had a sweet message written on it: “You’re the king of my heart.” It’s only fitting that the top tier of the cake was made to look like a crown and the clip featured the sounds of 50 Cent’s unofficial birthday anthem “In Da Club.”

While the dancer wasn’t in “da club” for his big 3-8, he was treated to quite a show thanks to flaming drinks and steak cutting theatrics at viral meme-lord Salt Bae’s place.

Belle also shared a video via her Instagram Story of Savchenko blowing out his birthday candles before blowing a few air kisses her way. That wasn’t the DWTS star’s only birthday surprise, though. The model also gifted him an all-black Louis Vuitton backpack, which he showed off on Instagram alongside a sweet thank you. The heart emoji really says it all.

Perhaps the most unexpected birthday message he received was from his ex. Samodanova posted a clip of the pro dancing the Argentine tango on season 28 of DWTS. “Happy birthday,” she wrote via her Instagram Story, which he reposted to his own account.

The former couple announced their split in November 2020 after 14 years of marriage. Us broke the news last month that Savchenko and Belle were dating after meeting earlier this summer. The two “bonded over their love of fitness and wellness and being single parents,” the insider told Us. Now the couple appears to be bonding over big birthday celebrations.

Thoughts: Kenzie got a dance that will likely suit her tendency to hit every line hard. While it kinda stinks that Ariana got saddled with a ballroom dance for the 2nd week in a row, that song will probably help her to blow it out of the water. I think I'd rather get a root canal than listen to “ Thunder ", and it doesn't seem to be the right kind of song for Argentine tango. I feel pretty neutral on the duos – Kenzie/Miles seems stronger technically, but I’m still getting a disconnect from Kenzie during her performances; Ariana/Sky will probably be a crowd-pleaser.

Heh, Bruno doesn't know where his camera is. 😀

This opening is kinda fun….taped yesterday or Saturday. Can't remember.

Alexis up first with her Argentine Tango. Talking about something other than her showmance. Oops. Spoke too soon. Sounded like the Bachelorette there for a moment.

I do love this music, but it’s still not great for an AT….and her feet are STILL wrong, in week 9. Other than her feet which annoy, she moves very well.

Len says congrats to all the finalists. Says Alan pulled off a terrific dance, nice lyrical feel. Says he's concerned with the footwork (agreed). Bruno says she's gained poise and elegance, loves the classical touches, the connection works. He felt it. Noted a little stumble on the landing, then says he didn't see it. CAI says she's opened up but her pointe wasn't as strong (that's what I was seeing).

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27. For those keeping track, I was a point too high on my guess for her score.

Lin-Manuel Miranda in a commercial for Mary Poppins. :::swoon:::

Did you all know that Bobby has never danced before? 😀 Should probably warn the audience if you're going to high five of them. Looks dumb otherwise.

I’m sure bobby is doing a better job at this dance because the bar was so low….but it’s still so stiff in the actual dance parts. Even his hammer part is too wild.

Bruno…can't tell if he likes it or now. I think not, because he then says he understands why he's there at the finale. CAI says he defies the law of ballroom and latin dancing, but his hard work pays off. Blah Blah. Len says he put the ham in hammer, but he has to say that he doesn't have the good feet, blah blah, but he makes so much fun out there than Len has so much fun.

And he gets a 24 out of 30. I think I nailed that one.

Female pros killing it - Witney, the master of the hair whip out in front.

Must we really see the retrospective?? Surely that time is used better elsewhere.

Oh god, a Bachelor dance. So Joe, Eric, Nick, Val and Wells (my favorite). Wells is dating the little girl from Modern Family, so don't get to excited seeing her in the audience. 🙂

OMG…too much virginity talk. All the rest of it is typical Bachelor fun stuff. I should live blog my thoughts on that show if you think I can be harsh regarding this one. 🙂

Evanna up next!! If you didn't see, check the PDH twitter feed to see a video of nearly every potter star wishing her luck only one I didn't see was Daniel Radcliffe.

Her Halloween tango I think puts Alexis to shame. I miss the cat ears though. 🙂 She's doing great. Not seeing any issues yet. well done!! Yikes, a near perfect score the first time around??

CAI says congrats to Keo and says Evanna is the most improved dancer, and this dance was even better this time. Len says he gave her a challenge last time and she accomplished it. Bruno remembers the kitty ears too. Says she adds something every week.

And she gets a 30! I believe I was on target with that score as well.

The male pros without shirts! How new, exciting and different. :::yawn::: This show had more class when Derek and Mark were on it. Oh Demarcus? Well, that helps.

Milo up next! My wine tastes…funny. Not bad. Just different. Anyway….what dance is he doing again?? Something with Robin Thick? Okay Charleston. He's still awesome, that hasn't changed. Lift was a little awkward. I think live performance throws them off a bit, but that was still an excellent dance.

Len is annoyed – he has underpants older than Milo. 🙂 He didn’t like the charleston as much…last time. This time he had the Charleston swivel. Bruno says it was even more exciting and sharper than ever. Out of this world. CAI says he is ridiculously amazing, says he's the one to beat. STFU, CAI. I don't think she's forecasting, just hoping. But it wouldn't surprise me if she was trying to appear omniscient.

And they get a 30 as anticipated.

Yeah, let's pimp the tour…with shit camera work. And that's two total fuckups by camera men. Good thing we didn't call it a drinking game…

All the male celebs are going on tour. Oh boy. Biggest surprise elimination in 27 seasons, Tom? Really? I don't think so, but whatever. Ad why does he get to dance again? You realize there is only 50 minutes left and you're going to screw the winner out of their moment yet again?

Tinashe looks and sounds great…but so bored of these male pros and their Magic Mike moves. Come on, get some real choreo here gang.

For those wondering about the numbers, they are extremely similar to what I forecast yesterday. The numbers for the freestyles that haven't been danced yet are, of course, guesses.

Dancer Re-do Dance Freestyle Total % of total points awarded
Milo 30.00 30.00 60.00 26.20%
Evanna 30.00 30.00 60.00 26.20%
Bobby 24.00 28.00 52.00 22.71%
Alexis 27.00 30.00 57.00 24.89%
Total Points Awarded 229.00 1. 00

If these numbers hold, here's what Bobby and Alexis would need to do to win. And they'd have to beat both Milo AND Evanna.

Bobby vs. Alexis 2.18% 21.834
Bobby vs. Evanna/Milo 3.49% 34.934
Alexis vs. Evanna/Milo 1.31% 13.100

Alexis is up first with her freestyle, talking about how this was her mom's favorite show.

I don't know that Alexis is good enough a dancer for this kind of freestyle. She looks stunning though. The staging is getting in her way as well. There isn't much to this so far. I think she's kinda hosed by having a live performer. Yeah, that was an awkward ending and the dance was much too simple for her and what I think she's capable of. Not that great, IMO.

Len seems to love it. I suspect that everyone gets a 30 except for Bobby. Bruno says it was a big risk and that the level of difficulty (emotionally) was high and she was on top of it. CAI says it started out with a struggle, but once she hit the floor she earned it back and it was her best dancing to date. I don't agree with that, but it is the freestyle.

Oh god, more showmancing. Whatever it takes, I guess.

And they get a 30 as expected.

Bobby's freestyle is up next. The one advantage he has is with people who wait to the freestyles before they see vote. This is where Evanna and Milo are hampered. If you're going to vote, VOTE NOW.

There's no talking during freestyles!! But it's who he is…he needs to flap his gums. Took a long time to get to the dancing. And he's off time. So many dancers I lost him several times. I thought that dance was short…and he's talking again. Okay, the best part was Tom ACTUALLY flossing. lol. That was smart. And they throw in some more shit camera work.

Bruno seemed to love it, says Sharna did a fantastic job. CAI is confused (she stole my wine!!) – she seems to love it too although she comments on his counting out loud. Len says he's not always been the judges champion – he's Len's champion tonight though.

Score: 30?? I hope like hell the judges know what they're doing. :::runs off to do the numbers:::

NUMBERS UPDATE: If all four couples get a 30 on their freestyle, here is how the numbers end up.

Bobby vs. Alexis 1.30% 12.987
Bobby vs. Evanna/Milo 2.60% 25.974
Alexis vs. Evanna/Milo 1.30% 12.987

I think Bobby beats Alexis, but can't beat either Evanna or Milo. After that, it comes down to who gets the most votes – Evanna or Milo. It all might actually hinge on the freestyle – but I might give the edge to Milo since he’s not going last. Evanna based on actual dancing.

Milo and Witney up next with their freestyle. The umbrellas are dangerous, but if they pull it off it could be amazing.

Oh Milo! looking all grown up there. Starts off very well. Lots of actual dancing. It's going to piss me off that Alexis and Bobby each got 30's when you stack their dances up with this one. Yep. pretty cool. Vastly superior to the two that went before it.

That look on CAI's face should be her thinking why did I give Alexis and Bobby 30s?? Usual freestyle hyperbole comparing to other seasons BS. Len is raving also. Bruno…also raving. I'm tired of typing, can you tell? 🙂

Score: 30, as expected.

Hurry up and get Evanna out here!! Jesus, cutting it kinds close once again.

Is Keo going to throw up? Dancing to Evanna's favorite dance in the world. Keo says he's going to go big. I hope he doesn't go too big - sometimes less is more. Keo talking about how he made family/friend with Keo. Evanna getting wet. She says this was one of her happiest times.

Clever staging and I love this song too. wow. Nice lift. Love the fast/slow components. Damn, I loved that. It just made me happy. It was such a happy, joyful dance. Fantastic!

Len is talking about the evening and the dance. Calls this dance the cherry on the cake, he loves the mix of styles. Len congratulates Keo. Bruno raves. CAI says she did a great job, she made it her own. Says there is something very special about her - agreed.

One of the top ten professional Latin American dancers in the world. This couple delighted viewers throughout the entire season of Dancing with the Stars - 2015, and it is not surprising that they won the audience award.

Vokrug TV has no questions for Gleb Savchenko as a professional: he is a dancer of the highest class. We decided to find out what kind of person he is outside the parquet, what he dreams of, how he raises his daughter, and when was the last time he had the opportunity to invite his wife Elena Samodanova to dance .

How do two professionals get along in the same family (Gleb Savchenko's wife Elena Samodanova - choreographer and judge of the international category. - Note ed.)?

We are both leaders, both of us have character. Naturally, everyone has their own opinion. But we already know each other so well that we can easily overcome the disagreements that happen in any family. Our secret is that we have learned to work in a team. A family is a kind of business where partners do one thing together. In addition, we have learned to separate personal life, family relationships and raising a child from work and career. Therefore, our union really works.

Elena Samodanova

- Who helps the other person more in career development and personal growth in your tandem?

Probably Lena helps me more. She sets me up, advises something, generates some crazy ideas, which we then implement together. She has an idea and I take it and make it (laughs) . This is a double collaboration: without my participation, her ideas would not have come true, and without her ideas, I would have been sitting somewhere in Bali and drinking beer in peace.

- Gleb, how do you raise your daughter? What dances do you dance with her?

Oh, she loves to dance! She has a lot of energy and emotions. Since we live in different countries and constantly move between them, in each country it does something different. Here, in Moscow, she goes to gymnastics, ballet and dancing, in Australia she swims and surfs, in America she also dances and gymnastics.

Elena Samodanova and Vadim Lyubushkin

- Do you want a son? Are you going to teach him how to dance too?

Yes, I want a son. I actually want three children. I will teach dance to a certain level. In my opinion, children need to develop what they really like, but it’s not worth putting pressure and imposing your opinion in terms of choice. Who knows, maybe he will like to grow tomatoes? So, be an agronomist. Why not?!

- How to deal with the stereotype “dancing is not for boys”, another thing is boxing, football…

I think that every dancer inevitably comes across this. And this opinion exists not only in Russia - this situation is everywhere. Especially goes to those who are engaged in ballroom dancing. Although now in Russia they are very popular. There is a ballroom dancing section in almost every school. Yes, at first they laugh at you, but then, when you go out and show your skills, they say: “Wow, that's cool!”.

Gleb Savchenko and Adelina Sotnikova

- "Wow, that's cool!" TV viewers also spoke. No wonder you and Adelina Sotnikova won the Audience Choice Award. By the way, how did you work together with the Olympic champion?

I was sick and worried about Adeline when I watched the Olympics in Sochi. But we didn’t know her personally before the project. When I learned that I would dance in the show with Adeline, I was wildly delighted. Everything coincided so coolly with her: the weight category, the characters, and the age. Adeline, and I'm not afraid to say this, is a partner you can only dream of. I think that any professional partner in the project, having learned that he did not get it, envied me to some extent.

- Was Adelina superior to the other members in everything, and did she have no weak spots?

Adelina is the youngest participant of the project. She is only 18 years old, therefore she has less life experience compared to the rest. In addition, she is only an athlete - she does not have an acting base, unlike other participants. Therefore, I faced difficult tasks. It was necessary to tune it to each of the numbers and explain the nature of each dance. It took quite a lot of time and for me personally it was a kind of challenge. I was excited for Adeline, because she had never danced before. This is something new for her. Therefore, in each number I thought not only about myself and how I could dance, but also about her: out of the corner of my eye I always watched Adeline. This was my share of responsibility for her.

Gleb Savchenko, Adelina Sotnikova and Daria Zlatopolskaya

The main thing for me in my partner is desire: desire to dance, desire to learn, desire to do better, desire to stay on the project, desire to create, understand, live. After all, if you really want something, you will definitely succeed. Here, for example, Valeria Gai Germanika ... At the beginning of the project, no one thought that she would succeed. And she came out in the quarterfinals and danced like half of those who remained in the final now did not dance. She had this desire! Plus, of course, endurance is important, because in the project professionals dance with stars who, as you know, all have different personalities: someone is capricious, someone is lazy, someone is quick-tempered, someone is just crazy. Patience must be ironclad.

The star of the Russian show "Dancing with the Stars" and the British analogue of Strictly Come Dancing Gleb Savchenko and his wife, choreographer Elena Samodanova, became parents for the second time. Gleb announced the good news the day before on his Twitter page. The star spouses have not yet shown a photo of the child, but they revealed the name and gender.

I am so happy to welcome my baby! This is a girl - Zlata, she was born on August 1 at 22:26, ​​weight - 3.6 kg, - Gleb wrote.

Shortly before Elena's birth, Gleb was in the USA, where he took part in a dance tour. However, having learned that his wife was about to give birth to a child, the organizers allowed Gleb to leave the tour and join the family. Gleb immediately flew to Sydney, where the star family currently lives.

I think my family is more important than fame, Gleb told The Sun at the time.

Gleb and Elena met in one of the dance studios in Moscow, when both were 18 years old, they immediately became friends. After some time, friendship grew into love. In 2006, Gleb and Elena officially formalized the relationship, in the same year the couple had a daughter, Olivia.

Gleb Savchenko ranks 10th in the world among professional performers of Latin American dances
. In 2015, Gleb became a participant in the ninth season of the show "Dancing with the Stars" on the Russia-1 TV channel, where he took to the floor in a pair with figure skater Adelina Sotnikova. His wife Elena also participated in the show, but was on the jury.
