A billionaire has shared these snaps with his 43-year younger model wife on their honeymoon in the face of criticism from his children who say she only married him for his money.
Eduardo Francisco Costantini, 73, an Argentine real estate developer and founder of the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires, married stunning model Elina Fernandez, 30, on 22nd February.
According to local media, the children of the businessman, who has an estimated fortune of 1.2 billion USD (960 million GBP), accused the model of marrying their father out of financial interests.
However, despite criticism from loved ones and online trolls, Fernandez boasted on Instagram: “Married! Husband and wife!”
The blonde belter shared snaps of their honeymoon, calling her new husband “the love of my life”.
After their wedding, the model said in a magazine interview: “People criticise us on social media without knowing how pure our feelings are.
“Besides, I have an old soul and he has a young soul. Out of us both, Eduardo is the one with the most energy and it is difficult to keep up with him.”
Costantini said: “She lives so intensely because there are physical, psychological and emotional challenges in her profession.
“She is in fashion and gets to travel to China, Japan, she worked in Europe, New York, Mexico. She has been a top Argentine model for years. She makes a great living.”
According to reports, the couple got married in a plush ceremony in the town of Alvear nine months after they met in the museum the businessman owns.
Businesswoman Anama Ferreira reportedly accused the model of planning to woo him in the museum after visiting it several times and learning he was single.
