Believe it or not, a woman who claims to have married a rag doll has said they now have a “baby” together.
Meirivone Rocha Moraes said it was love at first sight when she met Marcelo, a rag doll made by her mother.
Meirivone’s mother made the doll after complaining that she was single and had no one to dance with.
“It’s because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I went to these balls but I couldn’t always find a partner. Then he came into my life, and everything made sense,” Meirivone told Jam Press.
Meirivone and Marcelo have had a romantic relationship since the day they met.
The couple married in a “beautiful” ceremony attended by 250 guests.
“It was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. He is a man that I have always wanted in my life. Married life with him is wonderful. He does not fight with me, he does not argue and he just understands me. Marcelo is a great and faithful husband. He’s such a man and all the women envy him,” Meirivone said.
However, Meirivone said she struggled to pay the bills as the sole breadwinner.
“He has so many great qualities but the only downside is that he is lazy. He doesn’t work at all. But I am a warrior and I keep going for us,” she said.
The couple welcomed their child doll Marcelinho on May 21. Meirivone “delivered” in just 35 minutes at home with a doctor and nurse present, while broadcasting it live to an audience of 200 people.
She said: “I didn’t feel the painful contractions. Seeing the placenta, umbilical cord and blood made it all real. He was there in 35 minutes, and he’s awesome.
Meirivone hates when people tell her her family is fake. “It really bothers me when people say it’s wrong. It makes me so angry. I’m a woman of character. My father, my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person and not to wanting to enjoy nothing,” she said.
