OnlyFans model becomes one of the UK’s youngest grandmothers at 34
| Last updated
An OnlyFans model who looks young enough to get IDed has just become a granny at the tender age of 34.
Rachel McIntyre welcomed her first grandchild at the end of July.
When she shared the news on social media, her followers claimed that she looked far too young to be a grandmother and some even congratulated her on what they assumed to be her newborn.
McIntyre - who charges $10 a month to her OnlyFans subscribers - fell pregnant for the first time when she was just 15.
When she discovered that her then 17-year-old daughter was pregnant last year, she had some reservations because she knows how hard it is being a young, full-time mum.
"My daughter's only just turned 18, and I was very shocked when I found out she was pregnant," she said at the time.
"But once it sunk in, I started getting excited. I knew that I was obviously going to support her as well."
She continued: "People don't even believe I'm my daughter's mum. They look at me in complete shock when I tell them. They're like, 'Wait, are you not sisters?' When I say I'm a granny too, it's even more of a shock.
"I always get asked for ID because I look so young. It's annoying, but it's a bit of a compliment too."
While McIntyre is enjoying settling into her new role as a granny, she admitted that it was stressful watching her young daughter in labour.
"It was quite traumatising to see your daughter go through something like that at 17. The labour was a bit horrific, but thankfully my granddaughter is such a good baby," she said.
"She doesn't really cry. She just makes noises when she's hungry, and eats and sleeps."
The mum-of-two said the biggest upside to being a young grandmother is that she is young and fit enough to do a lot of things with her granddaughter.
"I'm looking forward to getting into the gym to get my body looking the best it's ever been. The biggest upside to being such a young granny is that I've got a lot more energy," she said.
"When my granddaughter is a bit older, I can take her out to places and I won't be tired like older grannies."
While her situation is unusual, McIntyre doesn't think there are any downsides to being a grandmother at 34.
"I've not been judged for it yet, but it will probably happen. I'm not bothered though. People will criticise anything these days. Life is all about being happy, and as long as you're happy, then you'll go far," she said.
