A weight loss influencer who traded her husband for her stepson and is now heavily pregnant with his baby has admitted that plastic surgery remains attractive to him.
Marina Balmasheva, 35, has known Vladimir ‘Vova’ Shavyrin, now 21, since he was seven years old. Their relationship developed after he returned from university two years ago.
She was previously married to the father of her new toy boy, Alexey Shavyrin, 45, and left him to look after her five adopted children.
However, the Russian blogger insisted on a prenup before tying the knot with Vova in July so that in the event of a divorce she would keep all her money and assets.
Marina previously shared the before and after photos with half a million followers, explaining that she had a tummy tuck to remove excess skin a year ago after losing nine stones.
Her other cosmetic procedures include a face and neck lift, a blepharoplasty, and botox on her forehead.
“How a person can change,” she boasted.
She said, “So many people tell me to put on makeup – eyelashes and curl my pubic hair – because of my young husband.
“But there is one thing – he fell in love with me with all of my plastic surgery scars, cellulite, excessive skin and personality.
“And I don’t want to appear better than I am.”
Alexey previously said the blogger “seduced my son” – who had never had a girlfriend before – claiming, “They weren’t shy about having sex while I was at home.”
He added that he could have forgiven her for cheating if it wasn’t for his son.
However, Marina has described her previous marriage as “not living but pretending”.
She said to her followers, “Did I regret destroying the family? Both yes and no.
“I was ashamed that I killed the stability of ‘mom and dad’.
“Did I want to go back to my ex? No. Do I feel anger and hatred for him? Not anymore.”
Describing Alexey as a “good person and a wonderful father”, she said her children were “absolutely calm” about the changes.
But she admits that Vova, a trainee manager, is “just beginning to settle down” and “admits that it is me who earned on our car and the first mortgage payment”.
“While he finds his feet, all the costs are on me,” she continued, adding that she got the prenup because “I’m not his sponsor”.
“We know exactly who deserves what. I knew what I signed up for, and so did he … I’ll just guide and support him.”
Marina said they may have another child in the future, adding that Vova’s mother – another of Alexey’s ex-wife – is happy to help care for the new baby.
“I had an interesting experience as my former mother-in-law was a former mother-in-law of my current mother-in-law,” she said.
