World's tallest teen girl towers over boyfriend during romantic walk on Brazil beach

London, Dec. 24 (ANI): The world's tallest teenage girl was spotted walking hands in hands with her boyfriend on a beach in Brazil, despite a staggering 1ft 4in height difference.

6 ft 8in Elisany da Cruz Silva, 17, had to bend down to even plant a kiss on her lover Francinaldo da Silva Carvalho, 22, who is 5ft 4in in height.

The youngster, from Salinopolis in Brazil, has a form of gigantism due to a tumour on her pituitary gland, which regulates growth. Doctors have since removed the tumour, the Daily Mail reported.

The aspiring model told Vietnam-based broadcaster BTV that it was Carvalho's personality that attracted her towards him, the way he acted with people and her.

She said that the only thing that affected her was when the couple hang out together holding hands is the fact that Carvalho seems like her little brother or son.

Elisany lives in a small house with her sisters and mother Ana Maria Silva and step-father Luiz Jorge. (ANI)
