Age gap couple: I’m 24 and my husband is 69
A couple, separated by 45 years, have revealed how they discovered a connection between them that extended far beyond their four-year relationship.
Stefani, 24, and Don Walper, 69, of Armstrong, British Columbia, are now married with a one-year-old son, but they were shocked to learn they shared a big part of their lives years before meeting.
Stefani explained to Barcroft TV: "We had been together two or three months and we were laying in bed one day talking and I was like 'you should tell me a secret, tell me something nobody knows.'"
Don began to tell Stefani about his previous marriage of five years and how he had a son with his ex-wife.
"So Don tells me this story," Stefani continued. "And I was like 'wait what's your son's name?' And Don repeats it. I was like 'oh my god, I know him.'"
