A woman in Brazil found a man who was right for her.
Meirivone Rocha Moraes, 37, complained to her mother about being single and stressed about not having a dance partner. In an attempt to cheer up her daughter, the mother made her a rag doll named Marcelo, according to Jam Press.
“When my mother created Marcelo and first introduced him to me, I fell in love with him. It was love at first sight,” Moraes told NeedToKnow.online.
“It’s because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I went to these balls but I couldn’t always find a partner. Then he came into my life, and everything made sense.
Moraes and Marcelo are said to have had a romantic relationship since the day they met.
“He’s a man I’ve always wanted in my life,” she told NeedToKnow.
After being together for several months, Moraes discovered that she was “pregnant”.
“It’s true, Marcelo got me pregnant. He didn’t take care of himself and he didn’t use a condom,” she said. “He got me pregnant. I took the test, it was positive. I couldn’t believe it.
Not wanting to have a “baby” out of wedlock, the couple decided to make things official and “married,” according to Jam Press.
“The wedding was a wonderful day for me, very important, very moving. It rained a lot, but it was wonderful,” Moraes said. “From the moment I walked down the aisle to the end, it was just beautiful. Then we went to the wedding night with my husband Marcelo, and we enjoyed our wedding night very much.”
The couple welcomed 250 guests to their wedding, then eloped to a beach house in Rio de Janeiro for a week-long honeymoon.
After the honeymoon, the couple welcomed their child doll Marcelinho on May 21. She “delivered” in just 35 minutes at home, with a doctor and nurse on hand, while broadcasting it live to an audience of 200 people, according to Jam Press.
“I didn’t feel the contractions of pain,” she claimed. “Seeing the placenta, the umbilical cord and the blood made it all real. He was there in 35 minutes, and he’s awesome.
Moraes said she and her family are extremely happy together despite the stress of being the sole breadwinner in the household.
“He has so many great qualities, but the only downside is that he’s lazy. He doesn’t work at all. But I’m a warrior and I keep going for us,” she told Jam Press .
Moraes works hard to support his family and hates when people tell him his family is fake.
“It really upsets me when people say it’s wrong. It makes me so angry. I’m a woman of character. My father, my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person and not to wanting to enjoy nothing.
Despite the hate or judgment she receives, Moraes said she is happy and in love with her new family.
“Married life with him is wonderful,” she told Jam Press. “He doesn’t fight with me, he doesn’t argue and he just understands me. Marcelo is a wonderful and faithful husband. He is such a man and all women envy him.
