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 tumor on her pituitary gland, which regulates growth. Doctors have since removed the tumor.

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.

At 6ft 8in-tall, Elisany towers over her smitten partner, who is just 5ft 4in.  Pix: Bronek Kaminski/Barcroft India'The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands - it seems like he is my little brother or son.

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.'

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.'
