I’m 27 and mum to a 20-year-old – shes my best friend and I love it

One parent has spoken about being a stepmother to a 20-year-old – even though she is only 27 herself.

Sav Martin became a stepmum to a 17-year-old and two other kids when she was just 23.

She began dating hair salon owner Chris, 44, three years ago.

And just four months into their relationship, she fell pregnant and the pair began to build their blended family.

Chris was already a dad to two teenagers and a 10-year-old when the couple met.

The pair are now engaged and have two young children together.

And although they and kids Trinity 13, Tayge 17 and Tizziana 20, Tripp 21 months and five-month-old baby Traxx, are now one big happy family, Sav says it wasn't always that way.

Talking on the couple's joint YouTube channel, Sav said that Chris' daughter Tizziana, who was 17 when she met her, had a tough time because his dad's girlfriend was only six years older than her.

However, Sav says things are great now as she admits: "Now we're best friends and she is like my right-hand man."

Talking about the couple's 16-year age gap, Chris says that he is young at heart.

He said: "I act like I'm 30. I'm not an old man I've got a ton of energy. I'm glad I had some kid's young so they can experience this part of my life with me."

Chris admitted he was nervous when he met Sav's family – especially when it came to her dad.

"Like meeting her father, I'm a father but I felt super-welcome, everything was cool," he said.

Answering whether they will have more kids of their own, Chris admitted he was unsure due to his age.

"I'm at the age already that I'm gonna be 60 when little Tripp graduates," said Chris.

Since the YouTube Q&A was filmed in July 2020, the couple welcomed little Traxx in April this year.

As well as their YouTube channel, Sav also posts on TikTok under the username @sav_martin, where she speaks about her family life.

She often shares videos of her and her now-best friend Tizziana.

"I met her and she was 17 and I was 23" wrote Sav in a video where the pair dance around in matching outfits.

"Little did I know, I'd become her stepmom & she would be my BFF."

She added: "I wouldn't trade it for the world."

The video, which has gone viral – racking up 619,000 views, has largely received a positive reaction.

"You would pass for sisters" exclaimed one person.

While another said: "What a great relationship you have."

"Your life story is amazing" commented a third.

Another age-gap couple who recently hit headlines is Jonathan Eubanks, 57 and 24-year-old wife Roxana Eubanks.

They revealed that Roxana is younger than Jonathan's daughters, but says they still call her "Mum".
