A woman has announced she’s having a second baby with her stepson after she dumped his dad.
Marina Balmasheva, 37, already has a daughter with 23-year-old Vladimir ‘Vova’ Shavyrin, who she raised from the age of seven.
The popular Russian weight loss influencer was previously married to Vladimir’s father Alexey Shavyrin, 47, but ditched him to set up home with Vova, reported The Sun.
Marina gave birth to baby her first baby Olga, who’s now 20 months old, after she left Alexey for Vova.
But now she’s announced her and Vova are having a second child and she’s “tired but happy, a bit worried”.
She said the couple “are accepting your hearts and sincere wishes” in a post to her 620,000 Instagram followers after announcing her pregnancy.
When she showed Vova the result of her test he replied: “Hell!”
Marina gushes on social media about her new husband having “the most charming blue-eyes in the world” but scolds him for being “clumsy” pushing their daughter’s pram.
She makes clear she supports him from her social media earnings rather than allowing him to do a mundane office job.
Many Russians of his age are fighting in Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine but he has a medical exemption from the army.
A video previously posted by Marina shows the moment he met his daughter Olga for the first time.
After revealing her relationship with her former stepson, 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 personality and.”
She also told how she had insisted on a pre-nuptial agreement so that she keeps all her money and assets in the case of a divorce from her new husband.
Alexey accused his ex-wife of seducing Vladimir as a student when he came home on holiday from university and he now cares alone for their five children.
“She seduced my son. He had not had a girlfriend before her,” he has said.
“She was running to my son’s bed from our bedroom when I was sleeping. They weren’t shy to have sex while I was at home.
“After that she was coming back and lying in bed with me as if nothing had happened. I would have forgiven her her cheating on her, if it was n’t my son.”
Marina now says her previous marriage was “not living but pretending”.
She told her followers: “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’.
“He is a good person and a wonderful father to our children. How did children take the changes? Absolutely calmly.
“I am married. I moved to a bigger city. I love and I am loved.”
