18-year-old Elisany da Cruz Silva of Salinopolis, Brazil just got engaged. Why do we care?
Because she's SIX-FOOT-EIGHT . . . and her fiancé Francinaldo Carvalho is just 5-foot-4.
That's a difference of one foot and four inches. To put that in perspective, the average woman is 5-foot-4 . . . so it would be like the average woman marrying a guy who's four feet tall.
Elisany is so tall because of a tumor on her pituitary gland that made her grow like crazy. She says she's worried about having children . . . and if she can't get pregnant, they'll adopt.
They've been together for more than three years, and have lived together for the past year. He's a construction worker, and Elisany is an aspiring MODEL. And yes, she's the tallest model in the world.
They haven't decided when they're getting married, but they say it could be a long engagement. (Daily Star)
