Alexander is so warm and kind
To Alexander Rybak, this summer is in the sign of love, because his life as a bachelor is a closed chapter. The charmer has settled down with Julie, a girl from Oslo.

Alexander Rybak, who recently turned 30, had to grow up before he settled down. Now the Eurovision legend has found happiness with the eight years younger Julie Gaarud Holm.
This summer is just like the winning song “Fairytale”, namely a fairy tale.
– He is one of the kindest, warmest, nicest and funniest people I have ever met, says Julie to “Her og Nå.”
The 22 year old characterises Alexander as a very caring person.
– He is very protective and he takes very good care of me.
Because of Alexander’s many events, particularly the ones abroad, the young couple have to take advantage of their time together.
– He is travelling a lot, at times it’s demanding. But my God, we make it work!
This summer Alexander currently has a summer show at Bølgen culture house in Larvik. In “Entertainer” he performs a song he has written specially for Julie.
“I Came to Love You” warmed his girlfriend’s heart deeply.
I would never have thought I would get a song, from anyone! It’s amazingly beautiful, she says smiling with happiness.
The couple have much in common, but not the talent for song.
– No, I’m not musical at all, but I think he likes that. Now there won’t be any competition in our relationship, says a humorous Julie.
