The world’s shortest couple have got engaged, eight years after social media brought them together. Katyucia Hoshino and Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros, from Brazil, both have forms of dwarfism and measure a combined five feet and eight inches.
Paulo, 30, popped the question in front of friends during a sushi dinner. Katyucia, 27, made sure he wasn’t joking before accepting with a huge grin on her face.
Katyucia and Paulo, who stand at 35.2 inches and 34.8 inches respectively, hope to enter the Guinness book of world records once they tie the knot – thus becoming the world’s shortest married couple.
