A mother of two expecting twins with a man who is 30 years old admits that he sometimes worries about her & # 39; grandfather & # 39; seems like they are on the road together.
Cara Foxall, 25, met Gordon Robertson, 55, three years ago at work, and the couple soon moved together in Dundee, Scotland after their romance blossomed.
The mother who stayed at home said she was so concerned about her parents' reaction to her boyfriend that she only told them about the relationship when she became pregnant with his son Benjamin.
Cara and Gordon now expect twins in January next year – and the father of one has admitted that he is concerned that he looks like his girlfriend's grandfather when they are out together.

& # 39; He is more worried than I am. When we're gone, he'll say, "I bet people think: & # 39; Oh, isn't she nice, take her grandfather, & # 39;" said Cara.
& # 39; But I don't care what other people think. We clicked because of our personalities, not our ages. We are Cara and Gordon – age is not coming in.
& # 39; You can't help when you were born, and you can't help who you fall for. & # 39;
The mother of two went on defending her relationship with an older man and revealed that people often have the same criticism & # 39; on the age difference pair.
She said: & # 39; When it comes to age differences, people tend to express the same criticism: the children may not have as much time with Gordon as with a younger father.
& # 39; But the point is that anything can happen at any time. You can turn 90 or die at 30. We don't know what's around the corner.
& # 39; Of course there are times when I think of the twins who go to school and how he turns 60 by then, but you have to take every day as it comes.

Mother at home Cara remains pregnant with twins – and has defended her decision to have children with an older man
& # 39; Gordon and I have a great relationship. I could be with someone my age who treated me terribly. Would that be somehow more acceptable to people?
& # 39; To anyone with a negative opinion I would say that if it has nothing to do with you, there is no reason for you to judge. & # 39;
Before meeting Gordon, mother Cara stayed at home, who has another son, Shaun, four, from a previous relationship, with men her own age or a little older.
So when she first met Gordon about three years ago through work, romance was farthest from her mind.
& # 39; I actually didn't realize that he was so much older than me. I thought he was in his mid-40s, & she explained.
& # 39; He dresses quite young – it's not like being in a grandfather's cardigan and slippers – plus he's young at heart, always telling jokes and not taking himself too seriously. & # 39;
For about six months, the couple were just friends, but their joke became flirty and the couple soon became lovers.
She said: & # 39; We would talk all the time, both inside and outside work. Gradually I started to wonder if he was flirting or just being friendly.

& # 39; Then someone else at work told me he liked me.
& # 39; I realized that I had also developed feelings for him. He has a great sense of humor, which is very important to me. You have to laugh. & # 39;
Cara and Gordon initially kept their relationship calm, but the mother of two had no choice but to introduce Gordon to her parents when she became pregnant with their first child.
& # 39; Because everyone was so focused on me and making sure I was fine, it helped break the ice a bit, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; People are always a bit shy at first meetings, and because Gordon is 30 years older than me, I think my parents were not entirely sure what they were supposed to make of it.
& # 39; But he is still there, we are still happy and now they get along well. & # 39;
Although her loved ones are supportive and her friends fully accept Gordon, Cara is all too aware of the taboo surrounding romances in age differences.
Cara has insisted that having a partner who is much older than her has been beneficial because he & # 39; is much more settled & # 39; is (photo: Gordon with Shaun and Benjamin)
However, she insists that having a 30-year partner has worked her senior's favor because he is much more regulated than men her own age.
She said: “I'm only 25, so most boys my age want to party and drink all the time. But I'm not interested in that – and neither is Gordon. He has already done it all. Now he wants to be arranged with our family.
& # 39; I always say that we meet in the middle almost mature, because men tend to mature more slowly than women. The only place that I really notice that our age difference is in the things we like, such as movies and music.
& # 39; He listens to songs that were released before I was born – but that may also be good, because he is full of stories from years and years ago, about things I hadn't had any idea of. & # 39;
