- The couple were worried about being judged due to large age gap
- Since they have gotten engaged and have a child together they are less worried what other people think about them
- They plan on getting married as soon as possible but want to provide for their daughter first
A 27-year-old woman, Jade Freeman, has revealed that her fiancé, Mikey McCarthy, is often mistaken for her dad and for good reason, he is older than her parents at 53.
When the first began their courtship they kept it secret for fear of being judged but now that they are parents to baby Roux and are engaged to be married they have opened up about their relationship.
Briefly.co.za learned that Jade said: “When we met, something just clicked between us. I never thought I’d say this, but I genuinely believe it was love at first sight."
The couple believes that the time they have together right now is more important than what might happen in the future and the fact that McCarthy will have less time with their daughter is not an issue according to the thesun.co.uk.
Jade has always dated older men but admits that the 26-year age gap between her and Mikey is the largest she has had.
Her dad is 51 and her mum is 46 making Mikey older than her parents.
Roux is Jade's first child and for Mikey, she is his fifth, the other four from previous relationships. The arrival of the baby has meant that they have postponed their marriage to provide for the adorable girl.
