This is a bizarre case of love with an inanimate object which is definitely hard to believe it’s not a movie. But it’s for real.
A woman who fell in love with a homemade ragdoll has wedded the doll and she now claims that they have a “baby” together.
Meirivone Rocha Moraes, 37, says the ragdoll was given to her by her mother and it was love at first sight when her mother crafted and introduced her to the ragdoll named Marcelo.
Her mum made the doll after listening to her complaints about being single and having nobody to dance with.
An intense romance quickly ensued and Meirivone made up her mind to tie the knot.
Meirivone resides in Brazil with her ‘partner’, Marcelo the Ragdoll.
They got married during a “beautiful” ceremony, with 250 guests in attendance.
The 37-year-old describes family life with Marcelo as “wonderful”, although she does admit her husband can be “lazy.”
She said: “It was because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I would go to these dances but wouldn’t always find a partner.
“Then he entered into my life and it all made sense. The wedding was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. It rained a lot but it was wonderful.
“From the moment I walked down the aisle to the end, it was just beautiful. Then went to the wedding night with my husband Marcelo and we enjoyed our wedding night a lot.”
While recalling their wedding day, Meirivone, who lives in Brazil with her ‘partner’ said: “It was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. He is a man I always wanted in my life. Married life with him is wonderful.
“He doesn’t fight with me, he doesn’t argue and he just understands me. Marcelo is a great and faithful husband. He is such a man and all women envy him.”
However, Meirivone complained that she is left struggling to pay the bills as the sole breadwinner.
She admitted: “He has so many great qualities but the only downside is he’s lazy. He doesn’t work at all. But I am a warrior and I keep it going for us.”
The story did not stop at the wedding but the two ‘lovebirds’ proceeded on a honey that has also gone viral.
The newlyweds spent a week-long honeymoon at a Rio de Janeiro beach house, before “welcoming” a child together.
The pair welcomed their doll-baby Marcelinho into the world on May 21, 2022, with the help of a nurse and doctor.
Meirivone live-streamed the “home birth” before an audience of 200 people.
She added: “It really upsets me when people say this is fake. It makes me so angry. I am a woman of character. My father, and my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person, and not want to take advantage of anything.”
