My 28 year old daughter doesn’t approve of my girlfriend who is only 4 years older than her

I met this amazing woman on this website called Loveme.
Her name is Yulia, she’s from the Ukraine, and everything about her is just great.
She’s so smart and funny, and we just connect on so many levels.
I’ll be the first to admit that we have a significant age gap I’m 59, and she’s only 33 years old.
But the age gap has never been an issue.
We’ve always been upfront with each other.
We had been dating for almost 18 months before I decided to introduce her to my family.
I have 3 kids, the 2 sons and 1 daughter.
My eldest daughter is 28 years old, she’s never really been open to the idea of me dating someone who’s only a few years older than her.
My two sons, 25 and 23, don’t really mind, they’ve actually been pretty supportive.
I’m starting to seriously consider proposing to Yulia.
I want my entire family to support the two of us.
I’m asking if there’s anything I can do to make the two of them get along? Even though my daughter has her own place, she comes over fairly often, I really want us all to get along.
Do you have any advice or suggestions on what I can do about this situation? I’d really appreciate it.

I currently live in this situation. I'm 4 years older than my father's wife. I'm 40 years old and my father is 58. They have been married for probably 10 years now and I've only accepted her within the past 5 years. Your daughter is entitled to her feeling about the situation but this your life. It's your happiness. Give your daughter some time to get to know her. Don't complain about her to your daughter. You don't have to try to force everyone to get along. Eventually your interactions together will get better. How long have you guys been dating to think of marriage? Your daughter is going to be very protective of you.
