These days it really isn’t all that uncommon to see couples with huge gaps in age, but one Canadian couple shocks a lot of people when they are seen together.
Stefani Walper and her husband Don have been together five years, married for a year-and-a-half and have a two-year-old son, but while that may seem normal, they are anything but a conventional couple. That’s because while Stefani is only 25, Don is 70, which leads to a lot of misunderstandings in public.
“People on the street, they do that second take or third take,” Don shares, noting when he’s out with his son someone might say “oh, grandpa's got the little boy today," adding, "I don't even correct them.”
The couple met at the bar where Stef works, and she insists it was love at first sight noting, “I just thought he was so handsome and he was charming and super flirty. And, I don't know, it just made me happy every time he came in.” She admits her family weren’t exactly too keen on their relationship at first, sharing, “nobody was on Don’s team,” but by the time they got married they were all on board.
And while they still get a lot of nasty comments from people who can’t understand the relationship they don’t care. Don shares, “I don't think we have to prove it, we just show them by living your life the best you can and raise our son the best we can.”
