Evie Smith, 33, often receives compliments about her “lovely dad” when she has been out with him and their son, Thomas, five.
A committed Christian who married a man 31 years her senior after being introduced by his ex-wife – who she met at church – told how she laughs when strangers think he is their son’s granddad.
Social worker Evie Smith, 33, who fell pregnant within months of trying for a baby with her husband, Peter, 64, a mechanic, has even received compliments about her “lovely dad” when she has been out with him and their son, Thomas, five.
Evie, of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia – whose own dad, Neil McGee, is only 67 – said: “The other day, out in the park, a woman came over and said how lovely it was to see a granddad and grandson playing together.”
She continued: “Not long after, Thomas was at a friend’s birthday party and a mum messaged to say my dad seemed lovely.
“At first I was confused, wondering why my dad had turned up. Then I realised she was talking about Peter!
“We just laughed about it, though. We wouldn’t be together if that kind of thing bothered us.”
