Meet The World’s Shortest Couple (Photos)


The world’s shortest couple, Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino both from Brazil stand a total of 34.8 inches and 35.2 inches in height respectively.

The cute couple who clearly are in love both measure less than three feet.

The couple revealed that they met on social media network about ten years ago and have since grown stronger together.


With the hope of entering into the Guinness Book of World Records, Paulo, 30, who has a genetic condition identified as diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism revealed that he fell in love with his wife, Katyucia at first sight.

He said: “I found her very beautiful from the first moment I saw her.”.

He also revealed that at first, the attraction wasn’t mutual as 26-year-old Katyucia who has achondroplasia dwarfism blocked him out completely on the instant messaging website.

She said: “The first time I started talking to Paulo, he was really annoying. He had cheap-pick up lines.”

Paulo, describing how the relationship started out said: “She thought I was trying to flirt but I was just being nice. According to her I was a really boring guy.”


Beauty shop owner, Katyucia finally decided to unblock Paulo who works as a legal secretary 18 months after the first encounter.

Paulo said: “When she unblocked me, it didn’t take me more than a minute to say hello. we started speaking and she said I was more civilised.”

Following the unblock, Paulo travelled more than 186 miles to Londrina, Katyucia’s home city to meet her.

Paulo said: “What most attracted me to her, besides her beauty, was how sweet she was. It was her sweet personality.”

Katyucia added: “He was wearing an orange shirt, jeans and sunglasses – thank God it has improved since then.”

She continued: “I had never dated before so Paulo is my first boyfriend, my first everything.”

Four years later, they moved in together.


“Basically, we are a normal couple but our height is a little smaller,” Paulo said. “The best thing about our relationship is our closeness, our companionship we have for each other.”

After eight years together, the diminutive duo are considering getting married — though Paulo has yet to pop the question.

“We’ve discussed having kids. My pregnancy would be high risk because the size of my uterus wouldn’t support a baby,” she said. “We’ve decided to let things happen at the right moment. In regards to the future, we say: ‘Never say never.’”
