The relationship between Marina and Voya bloomed after he returned home on a break from university when he was 19.

He helped his stepmother in the kitchen, looking after the adopted children, and doing shopping.

Revealing the relationship earlier this year, she posted a picture of herself aged 22 with Voya when he was aged just seven.

The 2007 photo produced a critical backlash online and she was accused of immorality.

One person said: “What shocks me most is that this boy grew up before her very eyes.”

She replied: “I know some will judge us, others will support us, but we are happy and wish you to be as well.”

Marina revealed her longed-for baby news on Instagram, saying she is four weeks pregnant.

“I know the term is short yet, and that the ultrasound with the heart is ahead.

“But I want you to know it. Everything is possible in this world.”

She said they would marry next month but “we won't have a lavish celebration”.

Vladimir’s mother - another ex-wife of Alexey’s - would help them care for the baby, she added.

“I'm done hiding,” she said.
