On Sunday, Sergei Ovechkin turned one-year-old, and his parents Alex Ovechkin and Nastya Ovechkina celebrated by throwing him a lavish “Boss Baby” themed birthday party, complete with baby Sergei dressed in a suit and tie like the eponymous Boss Baby.
The couple started the day sharing a more regal photo, the first public photo of Sergei’s face.
Then the real party animals came out, including alpacas, bears, and seals.
The party was chock-full of entertainment. The venue had pictures of the “Boss Baby” on the wall and on the tables, with some of the waiters wearing Minions costumes.
When the proud parents gave a speech, Sergei was more interested in his dad’s microphone.
Sergei sat in a miniature white Mercedes and played with the buttons on the steering wheel.
A troop of dyed poodles did spins and jumped through hoops for the amusement of the party guests, which included Ovi and Nastya’s extended family, as well as Ovechkin’s former teammates Alex Semin and Dmitrij Jaskin, and current teammate Dmitry Orlov.
Ovi’s brother fed some baby bears while costumed Minions danced in the background.
Not to be outdone by the bears, a gigantic Boss Baby showed off some moves of his own.
Sergei held onto a toy car as he watched a sea lion do a flipper-stand.
Like us, Sergei looked perplexed as an alpaca shaved to look like a poodle performed tricks.
There were also horses for the kids to ride, an interactive performance with electricity, and a live band.
As the night wound down, it was time for the birthday cake, which featured a Baby Boss topper as well as molded depictions of Ovi and Nastya. Sergei seemed more intrigued by the fiery sparklers than the massive cake.
After the cake, Ovi was absolutely pelted with blue and yellow streamers thrown by a room full of kids and Minions.
Happy birthday, Sergei! With the bar now set, we can only imagine what your second birthday will look like.
