When Mikaila met Harley, she was just 18 years old.
He had just begun working as a mechanic with her brother, and within a month of meeting, they were dating.
“He was so kind and hard working and a bit of a sweet talker,” the 22-year-old tells Mamamia over the phone from her Wollongong home.
“We are both very free spirited and I would like to believe we are very kind people. We’re just a really happy couple.”
A really happy couple who, over the course of the last four years, have held on tight to a relationship punctuated by the kinds of hurdles most wouldn’t see in a lifetime.
Three months into their relationship, Mikaila fell pregnant. She was only just 18.
“We were both in a bit of a shock. It was definitely a surprise. But after we decided to have the baby, it was the best thing to ever happen to us. She is our life.”
