Russian influencer marries stepson after giving birth to his child, documents relationship on Instagram

This influencer has taken the notion of keeping it in the family to a whole other level.

Marina and Vlad

Russian influencer Marina Balmasheva’s relationship status has been the talk of the town recently after she divorced her husband and gave birth to a child she had with her stepson.

Balmashava, 36, recently got out of her marriage to ex-husband, Alexey Shavyrin, ten years her senior, who she has been married to for a decade. Now, she’s already tied the knot and given birth to her first biological child with Alexey’s 21-year-old son Vladimir Shavyrin – the stepchild she helped raise throughout the marriage.

Marina made her relationship with her stepson public back in February 2020 and has since been documenting their journey on social media with over half-a-million followers. Marina started gaining followers on social media after losing a whopping 58 kilos after going through several major surgeries, but her new relationship has left her followers divided.

As expected, a relationship like this doesn’t come without some drama. According to The Sun, Marina’s ex, Alexey, claimed that his son and his ex-wife developed their relationship while they were still married. “She seduced my son,” he said in the interview. “They were not shy to have sex while I was at home. I would have forgiven her cheating if it wasn’t with my son. She was running to my son’s bed from our bedroom when I was sleeping.”

However, Marina denies this, saying that she started the relationship with her stepson only after they divorced.

Throughout their marriage, Marina and Alexey adopted five children together who are now being taken care of by their dad, as Marina welcomed her first biological child with Vladimir.

Marina recently got tongues wagging when she posted a photograph when she was 22 years old alongside her current husband who was seven at the time. “Yes, he’s young. But over the year it has changed a lot,” Marina says. “One thing for sure is the look of love in his eyes.”

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Alexey is now Marina’s daughter’s grandfather and her other children are both siblings, aunts, and uncles. Phew!
