Brazil’s loftiest teen is set to become the world’s tallest bride after her fiancee popped the big question.
Aspiring model Elisany da Cruz Silva who is a staggering 6ft 8ins tall has been dating 5ft 4ins Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho for more than three years. Despite a massive 1ft 4ins between them, Francinaldo had no problem increasing the distance by dropping to one knee after a romantic stroll along the beach.
The lovestruck pair have shared a small home in the Brazilian town of Salinopolis for one year and are hoping to soon hear the pitter patter of tiny feet.
Elisany is so stuck on having a child that she is willing to adopt if she does not fall pregnant soon – despite being only 18.
The youngster is worried that she may not conceive because of a form of gigantism that was caused when a tumour grew on her pituitary gland.
Despite this the couple are still looking forward to a long and happy life together.
Remembering the romantic proposal, Elisany said: ‘I told him many times, ‘do not ask me to marry you because my answer will be no’ – I think that’s what he was thinking.
‘I was so nervous when I saw him there. I don’t even know how I coped.’
Construction worker Francinaldo added: ‘I have always wanted to go out with a tall girl and she came and fitted into that perfectly.’
She’s still an aspiring model? Does she even need to aspire?
