A mum-of-four who has become a social media sensation as a “proud catfish” admits she once feared her husband would dump her when her teeth fell out.
Alicia, or Princess Glitterhead @princxssglitterhead as she’s known on TikTok, is a body confidence champion but didn’t always feel so secure.
The mum recalls falling in love with her husband Josh when they were 18 and getting hitched at 20.
She says: “We had our first beautiful baby when we were 21, but during that pregnancy, my teeth literally broke out at the gum line.
“Within a year of getting married my teeth started falling out and I needed my first partial [dentures].
“I thought my husband might leave me. I thought I would never feel pretty.
“I thought I lost all my value as a person.”
Luckily, she overcome her insecurity and Josh helped buy her realistic dentures and even a boob job to boost her self-esteem.
Discussing her extreme tooth loss, Alicia says: “I don’t think I ate properly. I wasn’t as healthy as I should have been.
“So the baby had to strip things out of my body that I didn’t know I didn’t have… mostly calcium from teeth.”
Alicia claims she believes she also had a genetic disposition to “extreme calcium loss” which is why her teeth fell out and left her with a dramatic change in face shape.
She often shows what she looks like without dentures and disgusting trolls have called her transformation “witchcraft”.
One cruel commentator said: “This feels illegal.”
“This is why I’m gonna start the first dates with some swimming involved,” said a man.
Alicia hit back: “Cold water and skintight pants so we know what YOU hiding.”
“This should be a war crime,” said another mean bloke.
But one of her supporters commented on her video with Josh, saying: “You married a true man of character, dignity, and respect. True love right there.”
