Natalia Kukulska (born March 4, 1976) is a Polish singer performing pop and R&B music, turning towards alternative electronica in the 2010s. She debuted as a child singer in 1986, and released her first "adult" solo album in 1996. Her most popular songs include "Dłoń", "Piosenka światłoczuła", "Im więcej ciebie tym mniej", "W biegu", "Tyle słońca w całym mieście" and "Wierność jest nudna". She has sold over 1.8 million albums as of 2014.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Natalia was the daughter of the late singer Anna Jantar, who was very popular in the 1970s and died in a 1980 LOT plane crash, and the late composer Jarosław Kukulski, who also wrote songs for Irena Jarocka, Krzysztof Krawczyk, Eleni and many more.

She married musician Michał Dąbrówka in February 2000. They were dating since 1990. Kukulska and Dąbrówka live in Komorów near Warsaw.

Their first child, Jan Dąbrówka, was born on June 24, 2000. He was named after Michał Dąbrówka's grandfather.

On May 4, 2005 she gave birth to her second child and first daughter, Anna Dąbrówka. A girl was named after Natalia's mother.

Kukulska's maternal grandmother, Halina Szmeterling, took care of her after her mother's tragic death. Mrs. Szmeterling lived with her granddaughter and great-grandchildren in Komorów, but died in September 2016 at the age of 92.

On July 30, 2016 she announced that she's expecting their third child. On January 5, 2017 in Warsaw she gave birth to a daughter, Laura Dąbrówka.
