Meet The World’s Shortest Couple

This pair of lovebirds are officially the world’s shortest couple, each standing at less than three foot tall.

Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino, from Brazil, both have forms of dwarfism and stand at 34.8in and 35.2in respectively.

The couple are proving that size doesn’t matter when it comes to love and hope to enter the Guiness Book of World Records in the future to secure their status as the world’s shortest couple.


The pair met on a social media website 10 years ago and began talking on MSN Messenger.

However, it was by no means love at first sight.

To begin with Katyucia, 26, blocked Paulo on the messaging site as she was less than impressed with his cheap-pick up lines.

Paulo, who works as a legal secretary, said: ‘She thought I was trying to flirt but I was just being nice. According to her I was a really boring guy.’

Thankfully, that isn’t where this love story ends and 18 months later Katyucia decided to unblock her admirer.


Katyucia, who now owns her own beauty salon that has been specially adapted for her size, said: ‘One day something happened in my head and I went and unblocked him. By then he was already more relatable.’

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.’

Despite Katyucia’s concerns about the long distance between them, five days later the pair started dating and after four years they moved in together.

Now they have been together for eight years and couldn’t be happier.


While their height might make using cash machines and public bathrooms slightly challenging, they have adapted their flat to accommodate to their needs and live like any other normal couple.

Paulo is even planning to pop the question in the near future.

With wedding bells on the horizon we are certain that this adorable couple are destined for a happily ever after.
