maybe the first in the history --- mother and son GMs!

Jan-16-19  BIDMONFA: Valeriane Gaprindashvili


Jan-16-19  Caissanist: Is it in fact true that he is Nona's son? Neither his nor her Wikipedia entry mentions that. I tried a couple of googles, but the only confirmation I got (other than this page) was from a tweet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: I'm not sure either. I've deleted that bit, to be on the safe side.
Jan-16-19  Sally Simpson: ***

As well as on this thread User: Eastfrisian posted in 2005

"Nona is the mother of GM Valerian Gaprindashvili (born: January 16, 1982)"

He is still active here, lists Chess History as his hobby, he may have the proof needed.
