A Brazillian woman has caused a huge stir online after she married a doll sewn for her by her mom.
The lady, Meirivone Rocha Moraes had been unlucky with men in the past and feeling lonely and distraught, she ran to her mother for help only for her to give her the giant doll named Marcelo as the love of her life.
Meirivone told reporters that she fell in love with Marcelo when her mother introduced her to him.
“It was because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I would go to these dances but wouldn’t always find a partner. Then he entered into my life, and it all made sense. He is a man I always wanted in my life,” she told NeedToKnow.
According to the New York Post, Meirivone and Marcelo have reportedly been in a romantic relationship since the day they met. After a few months together, Meirivone discovered that she was “pregnant.”
“It’s true, Marcelo got me pregnant. He didn’t take care of himself, and he didn’t use a condom. He got me pregnant. I took the test — it was positive. I couldn’t believe it.”
Additional information from Jam Press reported that the couple didn’t want to have a “baby” out of wedlock, so the couple decided to make things official and got “married”.
“The wedding was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. It rained a lot, but it was wonderful,” Meirivone said.
The young lady unbelievably went ahead to marry her doll in front of over 250 guests after which they proceeded to a beach house in Rio de Janeiro for a week-long honeymoon.
They had their doll baby shortly afterward, Marcelinho, on May 21 at home, with a doctor and nurse on site while live streaming to an audience of 200 people.
Meirivone explained that she didn’t feel the contractions in pain and that seeing the placenta and the umbilical cord and the blood made it all real.
She shared that she has a happy family despite the stress of her being the only breadwinner in the house as her man is “lazy”.
“It really upsets me when people say this is fake. It makes me so angry. I am a woman of character. My father and my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person, and not want to take advantage of anything.” Despite the hate or judgement she receives, Meirivone said she is happy and in love with her new family.
