A woman is to have her second child with her former stepson who she married after having an affair with him behind his dad’s back.
Marina Balmasheva, 37, already has a daughter with Vladimir Shavyrin , now 23, who she raised from the age of seven.
She was previously married to Vladimir’s father Alexey Shavyrin, 47, who she ditched for his son.
He accused her of seducing Vladimir as a student when he came home on holiday from university.
Alexey now cares alone for their five adopted children.
“[We] are accepting your hearts and sincere wishes,” she posted to her 620,000 followers after announcing her pregnancy .
She received 31,000 likes on her happy news. She and her former stepson already have a daughter Olga, 20 months, after her split from his father.
She said: “We learned about the new pregnancy on an embankment in Sukhumi [Black Sea resort]. Tired but happy, a bit worried….” She showed him the result of her test, and he said: “Hell!”
But he smiled as he heard the news from his former stepmother.
Marina said: “I have just learned [the result of the pregnancy test].” She calls her second husband “the most charming blue-eyes in the world” but scolds him on social media for being “clumsy” pushing their daughter’s pram, and failing to hold down a well paid job in Krasnodar region, close to Ukraine , where war is raging.
She makes clear that she supports him from her social media earnings rather than allow him to do a mundane office job. Many Russians of his age are fighting – and dying – in Vladimir Putin ’s war in Ukraine.
It is not clear if he is in danger of a call up. A video 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 skin and personality. And I do not want to seem better than what I am.” She also told how she had insisted on a prenup so that she keeps all her money and assets in case of divorce from her new husband.
Her ex Alexey bitterly told journalists: “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…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 now says he 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’. 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….How did children take the changes? Absolutely calmly. What [do I have] today? I am married. I moved to a bigger city. I love and I am loved.”
