Woman ‘Marries’ Rag Doll, Now Has a ‘Baby’


Soulmates can come from unexpected places. In one instance, a woman found her companion in a life-sized doll she calls her husband. The pair have now had a ‘baby,’ expanding their family to include one more.

Meirivone Rocha Moraes from Brazil was given a rag doll that her mother made her named ‘Marcelo’ after she had complained about being single with no one to dance with. The 37-year-old didn’t realize that she would fall in love with the doll immediately.

It was love at first sight. After a few months of dating the doll, Moraes became ‘pregnant’ so the pair decided to tie the knot before the baby arrived. The ceremony was attended by 250 friends and family.

“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,” she said.

Moraes continued: “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.

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

Thankfully for Moraes, the birth of her child was quick and painless, only taking 35 minutes to complete the procedure.

As for how Moraes was able to get pregnant? She claims that after Marcelo ‘didn’t use a condom’, she fell pregnant and even gained weight as she eagerly awaited for their baby to arrive.

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