Couple With 53-Year Age Gap Celebrate Anniversary


A 77-year-old woman and her 23-year-old husband are celebrating their sixth anniversary. The couple met at her son’s funeral back in 2015.

Almeda and Gary Hardwick have a 53-year age gap and married a mere two weeks after they started dating. The pair asked for the blessing of Gary’s mum, Tammy, then 48, and his grandmother Carolyn, then 71.

Gary described himself as “really mature for his age” and revealed that he had just come out of a relationship with a 77-year-old woman when he met Almeda. Before Almeda even spoke to Gary properly, she said she remembered thinking: “he was The One.”

After the pair got married, they moved into Almeda’s house, which she shares with one of her grandsons who happens to be three years older than Gary.

To commemorate their six years together, they posted a video montage on their joint TikTok account. The couple also has an OnlyFans account where Gary does photoshoots with Almeda that they post on their page.

Almeda admitted she didn’t have a lot of physical affection in her first marriage, even though it gave her four children and six grandchildren.

“I was married for 43 years and there wasn’t a lot of kissy, huggy stuff going on… no romance. [My current relationship] it’s a whirlwind,” she said.

She added: “We are always complimenting [each other] and kissing. We’re enjoying our relationship. When you meet that perfect one, that’s when you know you don’t want to lose that feeling.”

“I never feel as though I’m missing out on anything by being married to Almeda.

“I’ve never been attracted to younger women. Even when I was 13 or 14, I’ve always had an attraction to older women and when I told my grandmother, who raised me, I didn’t know how she would take it but she accepted us,” Gary said.
