Meirivone Rocha Moraes found her soulmate in the form of a doll called Marcelo, which was made for her by her mother after she kept complaining about being single.

Moraes fell 'pregnant' just months later, and the couple decided to get married in a ceremony that was attended by 250 guests before going on a honeymoon to Rio de Janeiro.

Moraes revealed that her birth was painless and explained that it took just 35 minutes to welcome the baby rag doll.

Discussing her wedding to Marcelo, she told NTK: "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."

Moraes added: "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."
