Gran, 71: “I have sex with my teen hubby every day!”
Pensioner Almeda Errell is a staggering 53 years older than her husband, but says he’s given her a whole new lease of life
Looking at Almeda L Errell and Gary Hardwick, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re grandmother and grandson.
Shockingly, they’re happily married and tied the knot just three weeks after meeting.
At 71, Almeda is more than half a century older than Gary, 18, but the newlyweds – who married in October last year when Gary was 17 – have a sizzling sex life.
Supermarket assistant Almeda, 71, from Tennessee, US, says: “I wasn’t looking for a younger man but Gary came along and we fell in love. We have sex every day and it’s very passionate.
“I’ve never dated anyone younger before. Gary makes me feel full of energy.”
Discount store worker Gary adds: “I’ve always been attracted to older women since I had a crush on my teacher aged eight. Almeda’s beautiful and young at heart, even though my grandma is the same age.”
Bizarrely, the couple met in October 2015 at Almeda’s son Robert’s funeral, who had died aged 45 after suffering a seizure.
Gary attended the funeral with his aunt Lisa, who was married to Robert, and met Almeda briefly.
Grandmother-of-two Almeda, who’d been widowed in 2013 after her husband died from complications from diabetes, was bowled over by Gary.
She says: “I was devastated to have lost my son. But I kept thinking about Gary – there was something about his smile that gave me butterflies.”
Incredibly, he had previously dated a 77-year-old and was instantly attracted to Almeda.
Gary explains: “After I met Almeda I knew there was something special about her.”
The pair soon arranged a date through Lisa.
LOTS IN COMMON
Almeda recalls: “We spent hours talking and found we have lots in common, like our love of country music and Italian food.
“I was worried about the agegap but Gary told me that age is just a number.”
That night they shared their first kiss and became an item.
Surprisingly, Gary’s family were supportive. But Almeda’s son, Charles, couldn’t accept the union and the pair have fallen out.
She says: “I’m upset about it but when he sees how happy I am hopefully he’ll come round.”
Astonishingly, it was only two weeks after their first date that Gary proposed.
He says: “I knew she was the one for me and didn’t want to waste any time.”
Gary made the arrangements for their low-key wedding. Almeda wore a borrowed dress and they tied the knot in the garden where they first kissed.
Almeda says: “It was a lovely day with just a few close friends and family.”
On their wedding night the couple had sex for the first time.
Almeda says: “It was the best I’ve ever had. I’m body confident, fit and healthy so there was no problem keeping up with him.”
Now the couple are living together in Almeda’s house, with her daughter Deanna, 40, and grandchildren, Aaron, 21, and Indianna, 16.
Almeda adds: “We try not to worry about the future and Gary doesn’t want to have children so that makes things easier. Gary’s brought so much happiness to my life, it’s just a shame it took me 71 years to meet him!”
MARRIED THEY MEETING, ALMEDA AND GARY ENJOY A HEALTHY SEX LIFE
