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 4ft 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.’

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.’
