An influencer in Russia who left her husband for her stepson is pregnant with his baby - which is due in a month.
Marina Balmasheva, 35, from the region of Krasnodar Krai, lived with her ex-husband Alexey, 45, and his son Vladimir 'Voya' Shavyrin for more than 10 years.
But she eventually divorced Alexey for Vladimir, who she married last summer, and now she's eight months pregnant.
Marina - who has 526,000 followers on Instagram - said neither she nor Vladimir now speak to Alexey, who won custody of their four adopted children, according to local media.
Marina said her marriage to him was 'not living but pretending'.
She said: "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 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."
Looking ahead to the future with her new husband, she said: "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.
"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."
