<p>A nanny who initially "hated" her employer, fell in love with the single dad and married him - despite a 20-year age gap. </p><p>Krystle Romano, 30, started working as a nanny for single dad-of-three, Ben Romano, 50, who works in real estate, in October 2014. </p><p> She looked after his children - Francesca, then 14, Julianna, then 12, Salvatore, then 10 then - for a few months and initially said she "didn't like" her new boss but stayed because she "loved the kids".</p><p>Krystle hated Ben at first and found him "rude and arrogant" as he only spoke to her and gave instructions through his eldest daughter - avoiding any actual contact with his nanny. </p><p>After three months, Krystle started to see a different side to Ben - he was kind and generous towards her - the pair soon realised they "had a spark". </p><p>They embarked on a secret relationship for four months and Krystle - who grew up in a strict religious environment - initially enjoyed the excitement of sneaking around and didn’t think it would materialise into anything serious. </p><p>The mum-of-one - who has a 10-year-old son, Kashton, from a previous relationship - quickly fell head-over-heels for Ben and their relationship became intense. </p><p>The families celebrated Christmas together and the lovebirds realised "it was more than just lust" and told their children they were a couple. </p><p> Ben proposed to Krystle on a gondola in Venice, Italy, in July 2016 and the pair tied the knot in an extravagant ceremony in front of 300 guests in Long Island, New York, in November 2017. </p><p>His children took some time to warm to the relationship but are accepting now, the pair’s family and friends were also sceptical at first but </p><p>Krystle, who now works as an eyelash technician in Manhasset, Long Island, said: “Honestly, we really hated each other, I don’t know how it turned into love. </p><p>“At first, I just enjoyed being naughty for the first time ever in my life. </p><p>“I texted him when his kids went to Florida to check they had gotten there safely but the next thing I know we were texting until 4am." </p><p>Ben said: “The first time I met Krystle she had arrived 12 hours early for her job interview as a nanny as she mistook 7pm for 7am. </p><p>“She was not a good nanny - she did the bare minimum, she never cooked homemade meals. </p><p>“She would usually turn up at 6.30am looking like she had been at the disco the night before, she wore high heels and short dresses, her hair was a mess. </p><p>“I kept my distance but one day she turned up dressed up really nice and I thought: 'No Ben, don’t mix business with pleasure.'" </p><p>Ben constantly told his children they needed to find a new nanny because he was unhappy with how the house was kept. </p><p>His eldest would reply: “But daddy she makes me so happy, she does my make up.” </p><p>Ben gave Krystle the benefit of the doubt and after one fateful night of late-night texting, their relationship became intimate, but both thought it was "just a bit of fun". </p><p>When Christmas arrived in 2014, Ben invited Krystle and her son to celebrate, and it soon became clear it was developing into a serious relationship. </p><p>Before the children knew, they even joked their dad should date their nanny. </p><p>The couple told their family they were together – Krystle’s family have always loved Ben, but Ben’s family were apprehensive about Krystle’s young age at first. </p><p>Ben proposed in July 2016 and they got married in November 2017. </p><p>“At first I was apprehensive because I didn’t want to mess up the household dynamic, but complement each other so well and she has never done anything wrong in my eyes, she is a solid good person,” said Ben. </p><p>Krystle admitted their first date was ‘awful’ as Ben took her to a fancy steak house, she was underdressed and by the time she arrived he was drunk. </p><p>After three to four months of sneaking around, the kids started catching on and they decided to tell them they were together. </p><p>At first it was a shock, especially for the two older children but they have come to terms with the relationship now. </p><p>People accused Krystle of being a "gold-digger" and using ben for his money - someone once commented: “When he’s 70 and you’re changing his diaper - you’ll see how you feel." </p><p>Krystle has learned to brush off negative comments and laughs them off. </p><p>In the beginning people even mistook Ben for Krystle’s dad but now people are aware they are in a romantic relationship. </p><p>Without make up, Krystle says she looks like a teenager- so their age gap is even more obvious, but it doesn't bother them in the slightest.</p><p>“We just laugh it off, you can’t really listen to what other people think, it will put a huge strain on your relationship," Krystle said. </p><p>Ben added: “I quickly realised she’s a good person and she has a good heart, she has never let me down. </p><p>“Everyone was sceptical at first because she’s a young woman and they didn’t think it would last.” </p><p>The couple joke they are complete opposites, Ben is the young party animal and Krystle’s idea of fun is a good night’s sleep. </p><p>Krystle is hoping to have another baby, but Ben is yet to be swayed. </p><p>“We really are best friends, besides partying, we like to do the same things, we love going on holiday and trying new food," said Krystle. </p><p>“I think we balance each other out and that’s what makes us work so well.”</p>
