Meet the world’s shortest couple who are less than 3ft tall
The world’s shortest couple – who both measure less than three feet tall – have proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to love. Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino, from Brazil, both have forms of dwarfism and stand at 34.8in and 35.2in respectively. The pair, who hope to enter the Guinness Book of World Records, said they met on a social media website ten years ago and started chatting on MSN Messenger. Paulo, 30, who has a rare genetic condition called diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism, said it was love at first sight for him. But the attraction wasn’t mutual. Katyucia, 26, who has achondroplasia dwarfism, which affects bone growth, initially blocked him on the instant messaging site. (Photo: Thiago Antonovos/Barcroft Image)
