Joelison Fernandes De Silva who is often referred to as the ‘gentle giant’ is now happily married to Evem Medeiros.
Both of them confessed that it was love at first sight.
Joelison is 7ft 8in tall while his wife Evem Medeiros, 21, is just 5ft.
Whenever he goes out of his house, many people are curious about his love life. To which he says, “Some people like to talk about my shoe size and then imagine how big my member might be,”
“Our love life is normal. We adapt. When lying down, everyone is my size”.
As a celebrity in his homeland he began to attract admirers, including new wife Evem.
She contacted him on Facebook to wish him happy birthday and they swapped numbers before starting a committed relationship two months later.
