While their 18-year age gap might turn a few heads, nothing will stop Bride and Prejudice stars Ry and Philippa from flaunting exactly how they feel about each other.

Despite her family’s disapproval, it seems to be that 39-year Phillipa Bennett and her 21-year old beau Ry Mclean eventually made it to the altar and are now out and about showing off their new wedding bands.

The loved-up couple were spotted enjoying a day out at the Gold Coast Aqua Park and they simply couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

They spent the day kissing, cuddling and walking hand-in-hand across the beach before having some fun on the floating ‘Aquaglide’ inflatables.

The pair –who are currently on the reality show Bride and Prejudice – is determined to prove that age is just a number as they fight for the approval of Philippa’s parents, Peter and Gunilla. 

Yet unfortunately, young ‘toyboy’ Ry is not exactly what Philippa’s parents envisioned for their daughter who is already a mum of two from her previous marriage. 

“I think I should congratulate you on the new child in the family,” her father Peter said of the engagement news.

While mum Gunilla previously said, “It has crossed our mind that Ry is a gold digger and she is putting herself in a dangerous position.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Ry admitted that convincing Philippa’s parents has been one of the hardest things he’s had to do.

“Philippa’s parents have never been easy to deal with. They don’t agree that Philippa should follow her heart and would rather her live in an unhappy marriage but be financially stable,” young Ry told the Daily Mail. 

“I have tried everything to change their mind, but it has been one of the biggest challenges I have faced.”

Yet it seems nothing can tear this couple apart now as they are now married and looking happier than ever.
