Rag doll

A woman ‘married’ a rag doll and now has a ‘baby’

As the saying goes, love knows no bounds – and that certainly applies to a woman who fell in love with a rag doll.

Meirivone Rocha Moraes found her soul mate in the life-size doll she calls her husband – and the couple even had a ‘baby’.

The 37-year-old Brazilian said her mother made her the rag doll named ‘Marcelo’ after she complained that she was single and had no one to dance with.

She didn’t realize it would be love at first sight, and after a few months of dating Meirivone, she got “pregnant”.

They decided to marry before the arrival of the newborn in a ceremony attended by 250 people.

Unsurprisingly, the birth was painless, with Meirivone claiming it only lasted 35 minutes.

“It was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional,” she told NTK. “He’s a man I’ve always wanted in my life. Married life with him is wonderful.”

Meirivone continued: “He doesn’t fight with me, he doesn’t argue and he just understands me. Marcelo is a great and faithful husband. He’s such a man and all the women envy him.

“When my mother created Marcelo and first introduced him to me, I fell in love with him. It was love at first sight.

“It’s because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I was going to these dances but I couldn’t always find a partner. Then he came into my life and everything made sense.

“The wedding was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. It rained a lot but it was wonderful.”

But as is often the case, marriage isn’t always easy, with the mother-of-one doll adding: “He has so many great qualities but the only downside is that he’s lazy. He doesn’t work at all.

“But I am a warrior and I carry on for us.”

Meirivone said that after Marcelo ‘didn’t use a condom’ she got pregnant and even gained weight as she looked forward to the new arrival.

On May 21, they gave birth to baby doll Marcelinho after a painless delivery.

She explained: “I didn’t feel the pain contractions. Seeing the placenta, the umbilical cord and the blood made it all feel real. He was here in 35 minutes and he’s awesome.

“It really bothers me when people say it’s fake. It makes me so angry.

“I am a woman of character. My father, my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person and not to want to take advantage of anything.”
