A 44-year-old British woman ran off with her pregnant daughter’s boyfriend. Interesingly, the daughter was delivering the baby when her boyfriend and granny ran away together.

Georgina Aldridge, 44, a grandmother-of-six, recently made headlines for running away with her daughter Jess’ partner Ryan Shelton.

Hours after giving birth to their baby, Jess received a text from her boyfriend  telling her he was ending their relationship. The affair began after Ryan and Jess moved in with Georgina in Gloucestershire.

By the time Aldridge was discharged from hospital, she had lost her mother Georgina and boyfriend, and was left to fend for herself, footing the bill for rent and food.

“You expect a new grandmother to fall in love with the baby — not the father,” Aldridge told The Sun.

“She is meant to be a granny to my two children and helping me look after them but instead she’s off shagging my boyfriend.”

Twenty-four-year-old Jess was left heartbroken after she found Ryan and her mother fled together.

When the daughter confronted her mother, Georgina said, “We can’t help who we fall in love with.”

While the couple has dodged severe criticism, unapologetic Georgina told The Sun: “These things happen.”

Ryan, in a way, echoed similar remarks as well.

“I don’t care what everyone thinks, I am in love with Georgina and I don’t care who knows about it. Other people’s opinions don’t bother me at all,” said Ryan, as reported by

Jess, the daughter, described the affair between her mother and boyfriend as “the ultimate betrayal”, however, she said she is in disbelief about what has happened.”I’m still fuming that they think they can just run off together and leave me to look after two young children. I’m in disbelief. Mum still hasn’t bothered to say sorry,” reported Times Now.
