Grandma-Of-13 Prepares to Become Wife for the First Time with Man Younger than Her Grandkids
A love story that defied age and convention captured the attention of many with its unexpected twists and turns. While the romance inspired some, many were skeptical and wondered if the great-grandmother’s young suitor had ulterior motives for marrying her.
Kathi Jenkins, 74, enjoyed her life and spent time with her family, which included her four children, 13 grandkids, 36 great-grandchildren kids, and one great-great-child. She could not wait to become a wife for the first time.
Kathi met her 27-year-old fiancé, Devaughn Aubrey, on a hookup site, and it was love at first sight. They talked for four months before they met, and since then, they have been inseparable. But not everyone approved of their romance.
The couple hoped to get married in 2023 and described their relationship as the healthiest they have ever been in. Kathi has had a few long-term relationships but shared that Devaughn was different from the other men she had been with.
Her future husband was younger than some of her grandchildren, but she said he was the perfect partner for her. And he felt the same, expressing:
“She is so perfect for me. She is very experienced in life and teaches me a lot. We never fight, can always talk without yelling, and I trust her completely.”
Devaughn was a divorcé after things did not work out with his high school sweetheart, but despite his past, he felt ready to move on and tie the knot again.
Kathi was also eager, but this choice stunned her family because her partners were usually tall white men. Devaughn’s decision to practice veganism also led to issues with Kathi’s kids, but the couple was not bothered.
When Devaughn revealed the relationship to his loved ones, they did not think he was serious. However, they believed him once they saw photos of the happy couple.
The couple has been open about their deep love for each other, but their many online critics questioned their relationship.
Their relationship has faced some backlash due to their 47-year age gap. People criticized Devaughn, assuming he was romantically involved with Kathi for her money, but he has always denied this. He said:
“Because of our age gap, sometimes people assume that Kathi is rich and that I want all her money, which is not the case at all.”
Devaughn loved showing off his “sexy fiancée” and could not stop gushing about her beauty. Her need for a walker did not bother him, and he appreciated her wealth of experience, adding that he loved her voice and knowledge of old songs because it reminded him of his grandmother.
Online Users Judge the Relationship
The couple has been open about their deep love for each other, but their many online critics questioned their relationship:
“I hope she had her will written before meeting him. There are those who have no morals and seek to find financial stability from anyone, not caring if they hurt them or not.”

“Good luck to them, but hopefully, if she owns the property or something has been put in place in her will so the property is to be shared between her children in the event of her death. If he truly loves her, he wouldn’t mind this at all.”

“[I have] seen this before. Pretending to love the elderly person, take her for everything she has and a free pass into the country, then move on and don’t want anything to do with them after. Sad but true.”
