The youngster, from Salinopolis in Brazil, has a form of gigantism because of a tumour on her pituitary gland, which regulates growth. Doctors have since removed the tumour.

The aspiring model told Vietnam-based broadcaster BTV: 'What really attracted me was his personality, the way he acts with people and the way he acts with me.

'The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands - it seems like he is my little brother or son. But I didn't choose him, God did.'

Construction worker Francinaldo says his friends ask things about how he hugs her, but he tells them there is a way of doing everything.

He added: 'She is a beautiful person. She is tall but she is so pretty, with a beautiful face. I don't mind having a tall girlfriend. 'I feel free and relaxed as a person and don't care what people say.'
