Julia Zelg-De Freest, a 24-year-old YouTuber and singer, originally from Brazil, met political correspondent Eileen Zelg-De Freest, originally from the US, 61, at Tinder.

It was love at first sight and since their first date, less than a year ago, the couple now living in London have become inseparable.

Julia introduced Eileen during a performance she sang in London and shortly thereafter, Eileen introduced Julia during their vacation in Brazil.

The wedding ceremony took place at a 5-star hotel on Liverpool Street, on June 8 in London, with Julia in a white A-line Maggie Sottero dress and Eileen with an elegant white lace dress. Both brides wore a veil and dyed their hair bright pink.

Julia said: & # 39; When I first saw Eileen in person, I simply feared her because she is simply the nicest and sweetest person ever. & # 39;

Earlier, when she raised the opinion they had as a couple, Julia said: & I think we get hate reactions mainly because of the age backlog, but also because we are gay and there are still many homophobic people. & # 39;

Despite their nearly 40-year gap, the two have learned not to stumble the judgment of others and their romance.

Julia and Eileen say that they have received nothing but support from both their families.

The couple flew to Julia & # 39; s homeland of Brazil, where she met Julia & # 39; s mother – who is eight years younger than Eileen – for the first time in December last year.
