Aliya's boyfriend on their relationship

Aleksey Zaytsev, Russian bobsleigh athlete, and Alyia Mustafina's boyfriend gave an interview about their relationship.
Even if you don't speak Russian, go check the link out, because there are many photos of the couple.
Here's the summary of the interview:
They met in a hospital in the Fall of 2015. In Russia, athletes on the national teams are usually sent to the same hospital that specializes in sports medicine. Aliya was there for her knee injury, he was there for his torn adductor. He invited her, among other athletes,  over to his room for tea and they hit it off. He supported her during the dark period in her life when she wanted to retire. Aleksey is from Krasnodar, a city in the south of Russia, but he regularly comes to Moscow to train with the national bobsleigh team. Their training centers in the Moscow region are only 40 minutes away from each other, so they spend weekends together. he also likes to surprise her and fly to Moscow without warning just to see her.
He seems very romantic and adoring Aliya. He even writes poetry for her. They want to get married, but a bit later (he's training for the Winter Olympics right now) and they don't want a big wedding, because they are both very private people. He also said that Aliya really-really wants to have kids.
