Julia Zelg is a 24-year-old YouTuber who found her happiness with the 61-year-old BBC Radio political contributor Eileen de Freest. The couple got engaged recently, and even though there is a 37-year age gap between them, they say that the difference in age has almost no impact on their relationship. The couple met on Tinder, and even though numerous trolls constantly send them messages of dismay, they say that their only worry is that Julia will most likely outlive her partner.
The YouTuber told Metro that the biggest difference between theirs and most other relationships is that they must accept the strong likelihood that she will outlive Eileen. However, they are completely aware of that, and they have accepted the reality. They are together of love, and not out of obsession, and the 37-year age gap makes almost no impact on their relationship.
When Julia first introduced her partner to her YouTube subscribers, she said that Eileen is the most amazing person she has ever met, and that she is just her soulmate.
The happy couple moved in together just one month after they went public, and they currently live in their apartment in London.
Julia added that they have the fortune to have an extraordinary bond and attraction between them, and it’s something she had never experienced before. They both feel blessed to have found one another.
