A BRIDE-TO-BE has bragged about her "amazing" sex life with her fiance – despite him being 25 years her senior and often getting mistaken for her dad.
Briony Kelly, 26, met 51-year-old delivery driver Andy Johnston through work in November 2017.
After months of chatting and enjoying lunch breaks together, the couple went on their first date.
Surprisingly, telecoms customer assistant Briony, from Portsmouth, Hampshire, says she only discovered their two and a half decade age gap three months into the relationship.
And by then it was "too late to worry", despite Andy being just four months younger than her mum, as they were already in love.
Briony says Andy can more more than "keep up" in the bedroom and gives her a newfound confidence – but she's faced accusations of being a "gold digger".
Briony said: "Our first night together was amazing. I would say he was a gentleman, but really he wasn't – everything in that department is amazing.
"People think men his age can't keep up in that sense and oh boy he can.
"There's such a big stigma around relationships with an age gap.
"I've been called a gold digger before but, if someone were to look at our bank balances, technically I've got more money than him.
"I know that, which is why it doesn't hurt me.
"Age is just a number, I wouldn't change him for the world – he makes me feel so loved and cherished and I've got a newfound confidence I didn't think I would ever have."
Briony was just 24 when she first met Andy, who was already nearly 50, and was won over by his looks and witty personality during his daily visits to the store.
Briony said: "When we first started talking I thought he was a lot younger just because of his demeanour and his outlook on life – nothing was stopping him.
"He always spoke about how he was travelling – going out and enjoying the world – trying and doing new things.
"I would say it's fate that brought us together as I wasn't looking for anyone and Andy said it was the same for him but we found each other.
"I'd tried dating people my age but it didn't really work out and I got to a point thinking I was quite happy on my own.
"Andy's got icy blue eyes and really dark hair, which makes them stand out. He's always clean shaven and well presented and you could tell he looks after himself.
"Andy and I started chatting and getting to know each other and when we out for that lunch we just clicked.
"We were chatting about three months into our relationship and I mentioned I didn't know how old he was – he said the same about me.
"I think he thought I came across as a bit older than what I am and I thought he came across a bit younger, but there was no surprise.
"By this point it was too late to worry about it as we'd fallen for each other."
Briony said her parents were initially sceptical about the pairing, but since meeting him they've had a change of heart.
Briony said: "The first thing my dad said was 'can you not find someone younger?'
"My mum did question it at first, as there's only four years between her and Andy.
"But there's 16 years between my mum and step-dad so they would have been hypocrites for having that mindset.
"Once they got to know him and could see how happy I was they fell in love with him too and the whole age thing, it was like it didn't exist.
"When I told my mum that we were engaged in August 2018 she hung up the phone on me as she was shocked, but she rang me back an hour later and told me she was happy for me."
The pair became an item three months after they met and Briony regularly made the 100-mile round trip from where she lived in Salisbury, Wiltshire, to Andy's home in Portsmouth.
In November 2018, Briony moved to Portsmouth – but their relationship has led to some rude comments from strangers.
Briony said: "Some people can be quite rude or act shocked when they realise we're engaged.
"If we didn't have the same outlook on life or want the same things then it would be different, but he does want marriage and children.
"A man approached us and asked 'is this your dad?' when I explained he was my fiancé he replied 'you must be in it for the money then'. He said I had money signs in my eyes.
"On holiday, we became friendly with a couple and the woman told me Andy wouldn't want to get married or have children and that he was just using me for the sex.
"I told her straight over the dinner table that we were engaged, we were getting married and that we do want children.
"The woman tried to apologise but her partner told her not to and said 'we're just saying what everyone's thinking'.
"People can be so rude and think they can say what they like when actually they've got no right to."
Despite this, the pair are happier than ever and excited to begin their married life together next month.
Briony said: "I feel amazing about the wedding – I'm so excited for it. Andy makes me feel so loved, I wouldn't change him for the world."
