Many of the viewers had questions on how genuine their relationships are. One wrote, "But how do you look at your son's friend and be attracted to him? That don't sit right with me."
Another shade on her, "Outta all the kids out there, you choose your son's friend. How classy."
"We see the comments and we really unbothered," she told the haters.
Amongst the negative comments that attacked their age gap, there were supporters who think age is just a number and there's nothing wrong as they're two adults. Another reminded her, "You're old enough to be his mother."
Tanya replies that she did not have her first child until she was 23 and told the user that it was a "nice try."
"They said we wouldn't last a year ago," Tanya shared in another video.
