Two women due to get married say their 37-year age gap doesn’t bother them as they plan their wedding together. YouTube star Julia Zelg, 24, proposed to her girlfriend, 61-year-old Eileen de Freest, just before Christmas.
Julia, originally from Brazil, first revealed she had a new girlfriend to her fans back in September, after the couple met on Tinder.
Gushing about her new girlfriend, Julia told fans: “I’ve met this woman and she’s the most amazing person I’ve ever met.”
“She’s just my soulmate
“I was just planning to enjoy my single life and have fun and stuff, and in the process of doing that, I met her and just fell for her.”
Their whirlwind romance saw them announce they were moving in together later that same month, and they’ve even adopted a kitten called Brittney who lives with them in their London home.
Julia said in a vlog to fans:
“You’re probably thinking, wow you just met and you’re moving in together.”
They both acknowledged it was a “quick and new thing”, but Eileen said they were “consolidating their lives. “We’re not just acting impulsively we’ve talked about everything. “There are so many good reasons to move in together. And we’re both really really happy”
Their relationship blossomed, and Eileen, originally from America, said yes after Julia got down on one knee.
The couple jetted to Brazil to meet Julia’s parents for Christmas, with Eileen greeting her as “my future mother-in-law”.
And now the couple are busy planning their wedding, scheduled for later this year.
Despite claiming they’re just like any other couple, their relationship has attracted some criticism.
