Brazil’s tallest teen is set marry her beau – despite him being over a FOOT smaller than her. Elisany da Cruz Silva is a staggering 6ft 8ins tall while her compact fiancee Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho is only 5ft 4ins. 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.”
