A Russian influencer who raised eyebrows after ditching her husband for her stepson is now pregnant with their second child, the Mirror reports.
Marina Balmasheva, a popular weight loss influencer in Russia, has been strangely open about the unorthodox relationship she has with Vladimir Shavyrin, who is also her stepson.
In fact, even her Instagram bio cheekily reads: “She made her ex’s first wife a grandmother and her ex-mother-in-law a great-grandmother.”
According to the Mirror, the 37-year-old mom already shares a daughter with 23-year-old Shavyrin, whom she raised from the age of seven after marrying his father, Alexey.
Alexey, 47, has now been left to raise the five children that he and Balmasheva adopted during their marriage.
Naturally, he’s unhappy about how their relationship turned out, believing his ex-wife seduced his son as he had never even had a girlfriend before they started their illicit affair.
Balmasheva disagrees, saying she fell in love with her stepson after returning from university.
In any case, Alexey claims Balmasheva and Shavyrin would even sleep together at home while he was in the house. According to him, when he went to sleep, she would leave the bedroom they shared to have s*x with Shavyrin in his bed.
It was then that Balmasheva fell pregnant with Shavyrin’s child, which prompted her to divorce Alexey so she could be with her stepson.
The couple’s first child, a daughter named Olga, was born in Krasnodar and weighed 8lbs. Now, Balmasheva has happily shared the news that she is pregnant with their second child to her 618,000 Instagram followers.
According to the mom-of-one’s Instagram page, Balmasheva rose to prominence as a weight loss influencer after sharing her journey to losing over 100lbs.
Balmasheva has revealed that she often receives negative comments on her appearance. According to her, she’s had people tell her to start applying makeup because she has such a young husband.
But she insists her husband loves her unconditionally and that it was her personality that won his affections.
Interestingly, though, Balmasheva has said that she insisted upon a prenup in the event of this second marriage also ending in divorce.
