35-year-old Marina Balmasheva got separated from her husband due to stepson and because she is pregnant with his baby.
Marina is a Russian influencer who lived with her 45-year-old ex-husband Alexey for 10 years. Her stepson Vladimir ‘Voya’ Shavyrin also lived with the couple.
She is eight months pregnant with her ex-husband whom she married last summer.
According to local media, she is not in contact with her ex-husband; reportedly Alexey won the custody for the couple’s four adopted children.
Marina, who has 526,000 Instagram followers said that the marriage was ‘not living but pretending’.
“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,” she told.
“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 changes? Absolutely calmly.”
She continues, “What [do I have] today? I am married. I moved to a bigger city. I love and I am loved.”
With plans ahead with her new husband she told, “He is only beginning to settle down.
“We now share everything but he understands and admits that it is me who earned for our car and first mortgage payment.”
“We will have a child. Perhaps, more than one.
“I am hoping for a strong marriage, but it does not stop us from having a marriage contract with everything registered to me remaining mine in case of divorce.”
“Why? Because we are together, but I am not his sponsor.”
She adds, “Yes, now, while he is finding his feet, all expenses are on me… We know clearly who is earning what.”
“I knew what I signed up for, and so did he. I will simply guide him and support him.”
