Woman, 20, engaged to 49-year-old becomes ‘nana’ to her fiancé’s four grandkids

A 20-year-old woman has already become a grandmother after getting engaged to a man 29 years older than her.

Hannah Ennis met her now-fiancé Sam Pruett, 49, at the local department where they worked as correctional officers.

The photographer didn't ever expect romance to blossom after spending time together at work.

But after realising they were more than just colleagues, the pair, from Illinois, US, fell in love with each other.

Sharing a passion for photography, travel, movie and games, the lovebirds officially started dating on Valentine's Day this year.

Then in July this year, at the height of coronavirus, the couple quit their jobs and moved to Texas to start a new life.

And on August 1, Hannah popped the question to her partner at their favourite spot by the ocean.

Despite Sam already having four grown children who are older than Hannah, kids are still on her radar.

Sam is a dad to Kyle, 30, Logan, 28, Jessica, 25, and Samantha, 24, from his previous marriage.

His older children avoid calling her mum, but she is now a step-grandmother to Lonna, 12, Peyton, 11, William, one, and Ellie Rose, one.

The couple get odd looks when they're out together, with strangers often mistaken them as dad and daughter.

Hannah said: "Sam and I met when he first started at the sheriff's office.

"We became great friends almost instantly. We hung out at game nights, went on little adventures, and grew closer.

"Before we knew it, we were falling in love. And it progressed quickly from there.

"At first dating Sam was not on my mind. I honestly thought he was a little stubborn and old. I never pictured myself dating him.

"After we started hanging out and I let my heart lead the way, I knew my soul needed him."

Both of the couple's families had reservations about their whirlwind romance with Sam's thinking Hannah was after his money.

Hannah continued: "Our families thought we were crazy though.

"Since I am younger, my family thought Sam was only with me because I am young.

"Sam's family thought I was only in it for the money, which is crazy considering when we met I was making more than him.

"Overall, everyone has come around to loving and accepting us."

Despite Sam having four grandchildren, the couple are currently trying for their own little baby.

Hannah revealed: "Sam's kids now have babies, so I am a grandma which is pretty sweet, yet hard to think about as I'm only 20.

"The kids obviously don't call me mum, but the grandkids do call me 'Nana'. It's like Hannah, but with a grandma twist.

"We plan on getting married and having a couple of kids. Travelling is definitely a must and loving unconditionally of course.

"When you love someone, you just know it. You don't have to question it."
