World's Tallest Teen Girl Towers Over Boyfriend

Your love is lifting me higher: 
World's tallest teen girl towers over boyfriend as they take trip to Brazilian beach

The world's tallest teenage girl walks hands in hands with her boyfriend, the picture of young love despite a staggering 1ft 4in height difference. Elisany da Cruz Silva, 17, measures an unbelievable 6ft 8in tall and has to bend down to plant a kiss on her 5ft 4in lover Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho, 22.

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.'

Elisany was too tall to ride the school bus and says she left school because of teasing from classmates.

She added: 'It's hard when I'm inside home. I get distracted and hit the wood in the ceiling with my head.

Elisany lives in a small house with her sisters and mother Ana Maria Silva and step-father Luiz Jorge.

Her mother said: 'I want her be like the other girls because I know she feels weird and sometimes wants to be like them.' 

Loved up: At 6ft 8in-tall, Elisany towers over her smitten partner, who is just 5ft 4in

Tender: The couple says the extreme height difference does not matter

Love no matter what: Francinaldo says his girlfriend, who aspires to be a model, is a 'beautiful person'

The pair are happy together and she loves nothing more than stooping to kiss him and giving him clothes from the top shelf which he cannot reach

Family: Elisany da Cruz Silva with her mother Ana Maria Ramos in Salinopolis in the north of Brazil

Elisany with her mother, Ana Maria Ramos, and sister, Meire. Her quick growth caused her migraines and pains in her limbs

Condition: The pretty 17-year-old who aspires to be a model, has a form of gigantism caused by a tumour of the pituitary gland

Surgeons removed the tumour causing her height condition two years ago after her story was first publicized. Read More »

I am only 4'9 and i ahve been on dates with guys who just happen to be 6'0 tall or over.
Everyone has their preferences, liking or loving someone and
accepting their their flaws is irrelevant at this point, when
a person really wants to spend their life with you.
That is all that matters.

Back in April, Alex Conover of the Minnesota Timberwolves' official website wrote about a trip to the Target Center taken by a unique visitor: Igor Vovkovinskiy of Rochester, Minn. who at 7 feet, 8 inches tall is the tallest person in the United States. Due to his great size, it had been years since Vovkovinskiy — who was born in the Ukraine but whose family came to Minnesota in 1989 so that he could undergo treatment at the Mayo Clinic for the pituitary gigantism that was accelerating his growth, has lived in the area since...
