Veronkia Didusenko, the new Miss Ukraine has watched her shiny crown being taken off her after she failed to disclose this important information.
According to Daily Star, Veronkia Didusenko took the crown at the beauty pageant in Ukraine’s capital Kiev last Thursday.
But her victory was short-lived, as she was disqualified when organisers found out she lied about her personal life.
According to the competition rules, mothers or women who have been married are not allowed to enter the pageant.
However, the 23-year-old left out the fact that she has a four-year-old son with her ex-husband on the application form.
In a statement released yesterday, spokeswoman Victoria Kiose said: “Only a woman who has never been married and has never had children can take part in the pageant, according to the rules.”
Miss Ukraine officials explained Veronkia had broken the rules and was no longer eligible for the role.
It means she will be replaced by another contestant at the Miss Universe 2018 competition in China this year.
Miss Great Britain had similar rules banning mothers and married women, but was abolished in 2013.
Veronkia – who has 11,500 Instagram followers – posted a message on the site thanking fans for their support at such a “difficult time”.
She wrote: “Friends, I have never been a blogger, but we already have more than 10,000.
“Thank you for your sincere support at such a difficult time for me. You are fantastic.”
However, the beauty faced harsh criticism from some followers who accused her of being “dumb” as she failed to understand the rules.
One wrote: “What a silly thing to do.”
Another added: “There are so many pageants, she could confuse a Miss contest with a Mrs one.”
