This is all after she had paid for her daughter’s wedding in the first place.
A woman has told the bizarre story of how her mother took her husband, then proceeded to get pregnant with his child – all just a few months after paying for her getting married.
Lauren Wall, 34, from London told The Mirror that her mum Julie had paid £15,000 (€17,500) for the couple’s dream wedding and even joined them on the honeymoon.
Lauren was just 19 at the time and thought she’d found her happily ever after when she walked down the aisle with Paul White – as her mum proudly watched on in August 2004.
The couple had been together just over two years, and already had a baby daughter.
“Although we hadn’t planned a family so soon, when our daughter was born we were thrilled,” Lauren said to The Mirror.
After the wedding the couple went on honeymoon and even asked mum Julie to come along as a thank you for paying for the wedding.
However Lauren noticed that after the honeymoon Paul’s behaviour changed and he became “protective” over his phone.
Not long after, Lauren’s sister discovered saucy texts between Julie and Paul when she borrowed her mum’s phone.
”Mum denied everything”.
Heartbroken, Lauren decided to confront the pair.
“Mum denied everything, saying, ‘You’re crazy!’ When I confronted Paul he went white as a sheet – and refused to let me see his phone,” Lauren said.
Paul walked out just days later and Lauren was left heartbroken.
“I felt like my world had ended. I was a 19-year-old kid with a kid”, she said.
Paul and Julie quickly moved in together, then Lauren spotted her mum walking down the street cradling a swollen belly.
“When I saw her in the street and noticed she had a bump, my mind raced. She clutched her stomach and told me, ‘It’s a cyst’. I felt so sick, I went home and destroyed all the photos of our wedding,” Lauren said.
“I couldn’t believe the two people I loved and trusted most in the world could betray me like this.
“It was sick. It’s one of the worst things a mum can do to a daughter.”
”I’ll never forgive her”.
“Paul may have been a gutless groom but she’s my mum. She’s meant to love and protect me above all others,” she added.
At this point she knew she had to cut ties and move on from the whole strange saga.
Incredibly, Lauren even managed to attend Paul and Julie’s wedding – for the sake of her daughter – in 2006.
She explains how her mum had tried to reach out a few times, once ambushing her in a car and another time writing her a letter, but Lauren couldn’t face it.
But now, Lauren is happy with a new partner and expecting her fourth child.
Julie, 53, said: “We are married. We didn’t have an affair. We are married and that’s it.”
Paul, now 35, declined to comment.
