A Russian blogger who divorced her spouse and married her stepson, whom she had raised since he was a child, has given birth to their second child.
Marina Balmasheva, 37, married Vladimir ‘Vova’ Shavyrin’s father, Alexey Shavyrin, with whom she fostered five children, when he was seven years old.
Despite a 14-year age difference, Marina and Vladimir, now 23, have welcomed their second child together, their first being called Olga.
The couple are ecstatic about the new addition to their family and have opened up about their unconventional relationship, which she shared on her Instagram account.
According to The Daily Mail, the 37-year-old stated on social media that Vladimir fell in love with her despite her surgery marks and cellulite.
The blogger also revealed that many people have told her about various methods she can use to appear younger for her husband.
According to the outlet, Alexey is upset about the situation because he thinks his ex-wife seduced his son and that they were having sexual relations behind his back.
Marina appears to regret how she managed things, as she stated on Instagram: “Did I regret destroying the family?” Both yes and no. It was unfortunate that Mom and dad’s security was destroyed.”
“Did you want to go back to your ex?” she asked. Nope. Is there hate and malice directed at him? It is no longer the case. He is a good guy and an excellent father to our children. And I sincerely hope he finds his half.
“Was it worthwhile to change your life? It was well worth it. I no longer exist according to what society expects of me. I am not the norm. And that’s alright with me.”
Despite the unconventional method of meeting, Marina has over 600,000 Instagram followers who looked overjoyed at the news of the newest addition to the family.
One follower said: “Congratulations!!! The happiest moment in every woman’s life!!! Wishing you a speedy recovery!”
A second added: ” What a hero. Marina, I wish you a speedy recovery. You’re a smart girl. Congratulations to you and Vladimir, you’re super parents!!! He’s a great father and husband!!! Congratulations to you guys.”
We wish Marina and Vladimir all the best as they begin life with their new arrival.
