Marina Balmasheva, a well-known Instagram influencer, who hit stardom with her weight loss pictures, is once more making headlines.
This time around, Balmasheva shocked people by announcing that she is now married to her former stepson, Vladimir “Vova” Shavyrin, 21, and they have welcomed a baby girl together.
Marina Balmasheva, 35, and her ex-husband, Alexey Shavyrin, 45, were married for ten years. Alexey Shavyrin and the Russian blogger have five children together.
Alexey Shavyrin decided to file for divorce after he discovered Marina Balmasheva was seducing his son, Vladimir, then a college student after he came home during a break.
The Instagram influencer, who gained a mass following after sharing weight-loss content, has shocked her viewers after having a baby with her former stepson.
Marina Balmasheva, who has amassed more than half a million followers on Instagram with her bikini photos, left her five adopted children behind and embarked on a wild and controversial romance with her former stepson.
Balmasheva helped raise Vladimir from the age of seven and started dating and sleeping with him when he turned 20.
Balmasheva’s ex-husband slammed her by saying: “She seduced my son… He had not had a girlfriend before her. They were not shy to have sex while I was at home. 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 was coming back and lying in bed with me as if nothing had happened.”
The weight-loss influencer has been using her popular page to share details about her controversial relationship, pregnancy, and the birth of her baby girl.
She has also taken numerous opportunities to defend her marriage and her decision to have a child with the boy who once considered her a mother.
Marina Balmasheva said in a recent Instagram post: “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 towards him?”
She added: “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.”
The influencer had plastic surgery in order to appear more attractive to the young man.
