A British gran, 80, has revealed she plans to marry her Egyptian toyboy, despite their 45-year age gap.
Iris Jones, from Somerset, met 35-year-old Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim on a Facebook group in 2019 and ever since, she’s been smitten.
In a chat with the Mirror, the pensioner reportedly said she’s determined to marry the ‘love of her life’.
Jones claimed: “He’s even said he’ll sign a prenup because it’s me he wants – not my house.
“I’ve spent years making other people happy, now I just want to marry the man I love before I die.
“I’ve always been a bit of a rebel and he’s just perfect for me.”
She then added: “If he’s marrying me for my fortune he’ll be sadly disappointed because I live on a pension.
“He’s even said he’ll sign a prenup because it’s me he wants – not my house. I’ve spent years making other people happy, now I just want to marry the man I love before I die.”
Defending her lover, Jones argued that the couple is ‘equal in every way,’ especially when it comes to finances.
She insisted: “We are absolutely equal in every way. He’s not using me. If anything I’m using him because my love for him is selfish – I’m not going to let him go.”
The pensioner reportedly said that if things don’t go to plan and Ibrahim can’t fly over to the UK, she will head out to Egypt.
She explained: “I’ve met the right person aged 80 and it’s true love. I’ve never known anything like it and can’t live without him.
“I’ll do what it takes, even sell up and go to a different country with him.
“I worry I’ll die before I get a chance to marry. Mohamed says we might not have much time but that I will never die because I will always be in his heart.
“He’s amazing in every way… almost. His English isn’t amazing and he can get words mixed up, but who needs language when you are in love?”
