Elisany — an inch taller than Stoke City’s Peter Crouch — has a form of gigantism due to a tumour on her pituitary gland.
She grew faster than her seven siblings from the age of 11 and hit 6ft 9in when she was 14. But her sudden growth caused pain in her limbs and joints.
Surgeons removed the gland two years ago and she shrank by an inch — but she could still not fit on the school bus.
Aspiring model Elisany, of Salinopolis, Brazil, quit school due to teasing.

“What really attracted me was his personality, the way he acts with people and the way he acts with me”.
“The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands — it seems like he is my little brother or son”.
