The World’s Shortest Couple Will Revive Your Faith In Love
Published: Jun 15, 2016
Meet Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino from Brazil.
Barros, 30, has been dating 26-year-old Hoshino for the last eight years – both have dwarfism. Barros stands at 34.8 inches while Hoshino is slightly taller at 35.2 inches.
The cute couple met on a website 10 years ago and started chatting on MSN Messenger.
It was love at first sight for Barros while Hoshino thought he was annoying and had cheap pickup lines.
After speaking regularly online for two months, Paulo travelled more than 186 milies to Katyucia’s home city of Londrina to meet her. He said he was bowled over by Katyucia’s beauty, but she was shy and unimpressed with his dress sense
Barros works as a legal secretary and has a specially-adapted car to enable him to drive.
Hoshino now owns her own beauty salon that has been specially adapted for her size.
Despite Katyucia’s concerns about the long distance between them, five days later the pair started dating and after four years they moved in together.
The madly-in-love couple who have been dating for quite some time also say that marriage might be on the cards.
The couple told Barcroft they want to hold the Guinness record for World’s Shortest Couple, currently held by Douglas Maistre Breger da Silva and Claudia Pereira Rocha of Curitaba, Brazil, who are 35 inches and 36 inches respectively.
