Woman, 37, Gives Birth To Second Child With Stepson She Raised As A Child

Marina Balmasheva, a Russian weight loss blogger, has been the primary caregiver for her stepson since he was seven years old.

However, she has now married him, and the couple has just welcomed their second child. They announced the news on social media, despite the controversy surrounding their relationship. Balmasheva often shares updates about her life on social media with her followers.

Russian influencer Marina Balmasheva, who gained notoriety for marrying her former stepson at the age of 35, has announced the birth of their second child.

Balmasheva, who has been raising Vladimir "Vova" Shavyrin since he was seven years old, has been sharing updates about her life with her followers on social media, despite the controversy surrounding her relationship. The couple already has a daughter together named Olga.

Weight loss influencer Marina Balmasheva, 37, began her controversial relationship with her stepson, Vladimir "Vova" Shavyrin, 23, when he came home from university for a break.

Balmasheva reportedly left Vova's father after becoming pregnant with her stepson, and the couple began their affair secretly behind his back. Balmasheva's ex-husband, Alexy, had adopted five children with her.

She claims that she fell in love with Vova for accepting her as she is, with all her physical imperfections and personality traits.

"And I do not want to seem better than what I am," the mother of two shared.

The Russian blogger has been advised by others to enhance her appearance by wearing more makeup in order to maintain the attraction of her young husband.

To appear more attractive to her stepson-turned-husband, the blogger went under the knife and got Botox and a boob job.

This decision did not sit well with Vova's father who was reportedly furious about the situation.

"They were not shy to have sex while I was at home," he said.

"She seduced my son… he had not had a girlfriend before her."

"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 would come back and lay in bed with me as if nothing had happened."

"Did I have regrets that I destroyed the family? Both yes and no," Marina has told her followers.

"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 to 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."

Although their unconventional love story has caused controversy, the couple continues to share their daily life on social media with their followers.

Previously, the Russian blogger posted a video showcasing renovations at her home in Russia and provided updates on her children's routines.

Recently, Balmasheva shared on social media the news of the birth of their second child.

"Hello. Marina thinks that her second husband who has 'the most charming blue-eyes in the world' is also a bit 'clumsy' when it comes to parenthood," she captioned her photo.

"Vova told me to go to bed and that he would put her to sleep. This is when the fun started, and lasted more than two hours..."

"I cried watching him clumsily but confidently pushing the pram."
