“We both don’t feel weird about it in any way,” Kat told Jam Press. “We are both open-minded people, but people ask me a lot of questions about our relationship.”

In fact, when Kat and Robrecht started dating, she admits some of the most outspoken criticism came from her own inner circles, with the model noting that her mother in particular was very upset that her daughter was dating someone much older.

“Some of Robrecht’s friends were skeptical, one of them was even angry that he was with me, but his family was extremely tolerant.

‘My family not so much, my mom especially, I ended up moving because I didn’t want to live in an uncomfortable situation anymore.

“But when I moved, my family and I were back on good terms.”

Some of Kat’s friends also questioned the couple’s relationship at first, however once they realized the couple was real, they accepted the age difference.

Still, the couple continue to face backlash from the public and online, where they regularly meet with furious reactions to their age-gap romance.

“I notice it more than Rob,” he admitted. ‘Comments online are like, ‘Gee, how old is that guy?’, ‘He’s creepy,’ or ‘Why can’t he get someone his own age?’

“Once she paid for me to get a pedicure and when she went to give me a kiss, the lady looked at us in surprise.

“But I love the fact that he’s older, I’ve always preferred older men.”

Kat also claims that having an older man makes for better sex, claiming that younger men are too focused on “watching porn” and don’t have as many skills in the bedroom as a result.

“Sex is better with older men because they are so tender,” she said. “Younger men watch too much porn and get so excited that it’s over too quickly, but we’re always adventurous in bed.”

However, Kat has shared some advice for anyone entering a relationship with a larger age gap.

When Kat and Robrecht started dating, some of the harshest criticism they faced came from their own inner circles.

She said: “If they are older, you have to consider their health, depending on that, they may not be around for very long.”

‘You also have to have tough skin because people will comment and even stare. But the bottom line is to do what makes you happy.

“If it’s a relationship with an age difference, do it, it’s your happiness.”

Though Kat and Robrecht are now happily married, and insist they see nothing wrong with their age difference, they admit they’ve still had their fair share of hurdles to overcome in the three years they’ve been together.

At first, Kat says that she had trouble accepting Robrecht’s responsibilities as a full-time father to his youngest son; The military veteran has a six-year-old son and an 18-year-old son from previous relationships, and has sole custody of the younger sibling.

“Rob has two children from previous marriages and since he has sole custody of his six-year-old son, it affects our ability to go and do things as a couple,” she shared.

“But I share incredible love with both his 6-year-old son and his 18-year-old son, so no issues there.”
