Aisylu is the adopted mother to four little girls and one other boy, and is also the biological mother to a son from an earlier marriage, as well as Daniel.

Daniel was adopted by his now-wife when he was just 14 years old while he was temporarily residing in an orphanage the year prior, with Aisylu having offered to give the youngster singing lessons.

"Our relationship is perfect," Aisylu told local media. "We can't live without each other."
