She had her first child with her stepson immediately after splitting from her ex-husband.
A woman who left her husband to marry her stepson instead is now expecting a second child with him.
With Vladimir "Vova" Shavyrin, now 23, Marina Balmasheva, 37, of Russia, already has a 20-month-old daughter. Popular weight loss influencer Marina shared a video of Vladimir's reaction when he found out he was going to become a parent for the second time when she broke the news to him, reports Daily Mail. After sharing the wonderful news of her pregnancy with her 620,000 followers, she received more than 31,000 likes on her post.
Their first daughter Olga was born after Marina split from Vladimir's father. She said, "We learned about the new pregnancy on an embankment in Sukhumi [Black Sea resort]." She said that she is, "tired but happy, a bit worried." The second pregnancy, she said, was unexpected, but Vladimir was delighted to become a parent once more.
Vladimir isn't a part of the conflict in Ukraine because of a medical exemption that prevents him from participating. The couple spends time documenting their life on social media. Although Marina refers to her second husband as having "the most charming blue-eyes in the world" she publicly chastises him on social media for being "clumsy" when pushing their daughter's stroller and for not being able to hold down a well-paying job in the war-torn Krasnodar region, close to Ukraine.
She makes it obvious that rather than having him have a routine office job, she supports him with the money she generates through social media. She said, "So many people tell me to use makeup - make lashes, and curl my pubic hair - because of my young husband. But there is one thing - he fell in love with me with all my scars from plastic surgeries, cellulite, excessive skin and personality."
She also disclosed that she insisted on a prenuptial agreement when the couple got married so that she would keep all of her assets and money in the case of divorce from her new spouse. The relationship has not been well received by Alexey, the father of Vladimir and Marina's ex-husband.
Alexey told a journalist, "She seduced my son. He had not had a girlfriend before her. They were not shy to have sex while I was at home. I would have forgiven her cheating, if it wasn't my son." He added, "She was running to my son's bed from our bedroom when I was sleeping. After that she was coming back and lying in bed with me as if nothing had happened."
Marina describes her marriage with Alexey as, "not living but pretending." She said, "Did I have regrets that I destroyed the family? Both yes and no. I was ashamed that I killed the stability of 'mum and dad.' Did I want to return to my ex? No. Do I feel anger and hatred towards him? Not any longer. He is a good person and a wonderful father to our children."
She said that the children she had with Alexey took the news of their divorce well. She said, "What [do I have] today? I am married. I moved to a bigger city. I love and I am loved."
