The 23-year-old who was "stuck" in the body of an 8-year-old girl found love: "He is not a pedophile" - voila! health


Shauna Rae, who suffers from a rare type of brain cancer and the treatment of which has stopped her growth and therefore she looks like an 8-year-old girl, introduced her boy partner to the world

Trailer for the second season of "I Shauna Ray" (TLC)

Shauna Ray, the woman who became famous when she revealed that although she looks like an 8-year-old, she is actually 23, introduces the world to a new friend: a handsome 26-year-old travel blogger named Dan Sweigart.

In their photos together, you can't help but think he's her older brother - or her pedophile partner.

When Shauna Rae was six months old, she was diagnosed with a rare type of brain cancer.

Fortunately, after she underwent anti-cancer treatment, it went into remission, but the effects of the treatment caused it to stop growing.

Today, when she is 23, her height reaches just over one meter - the average height of an eight-year-old girl.

The chemotherapy Ray received following her diagnosis left her pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the brain and is responsible for the production and secretion of many hormones (among them growth hormone) "almost dormant", so that Una looks just like a child - and she will never grow again.

A year after the broadcast of the documentary series "I Am Shauna Rae", in which she tells about her life as a woman in the body of a child, Shauna Rae revealed that she is in a relationship.

Dan shared a photo with Shauna, who weighs just 22 kilograms and is 1.16 meters tall - and then also shared a video defending their relationship.

Shauna previously told The Post that men look down on her and exclude her because of her looks, but in the video, Dan says he's the one who started dating Shauna after seeing her on screen and falling in love with her.

The two met and soon started dating.

"It is very important to remember that Shauna is an amazing 23-year-old woman who has a disability," he explained in the video, "so when building a relationship with her, it is important to recognize her disability and look beyond that, to know her as she really is."

He added: "The minute you say she can't have a relationship in the real world with someone else, you're basically dehumanizing her. She's a human being. She deserves to have relationships and relationships with whoever she wants."

In her documentary series, Shauna is seen trying desperately to get the rest of the world to treat her as an adult.

In one scene Una is seen sitting in a bar where she is told that "we can't serve drinks to children" or a situation where she answers the question "How old are you?"

When she turns to get a tattoo.

Shauna said that "even though I can't grow physically, I really want to be treated like an adult. I'm working on my independence."

Swigert, who hails from the UK, appears in the second season of "I'm Shawna Rae", where he is seen making contact with the petite star for the first time.

However, since he was introduced to the world, the guy has been receiving a lot of criticism on social media.

"Yes, she's 23 years old, but she looks and talks like an 8-year-old girl. She also doesn't act like a grown woman. She's childish," claimed one critic, according to the MIRROR.

"If any man or woman can honestly say they can see her as a 'sexy woman' they are either lying or sick. Score it," replied another while a third simply described him as "creepy."

Shauna responded: "When you look at me, you see an 8-year-old girl, but I think that if you take the time to look at the small details in my face, in my hands, in the maturity of my body - and take the time to really talk to me, you will understand that I am 23 years old and he is not a pedophile ".

Despite the good intentions, her romance with Sweigert may not last long, as the travel blogger recently returned to his home in the UK while Ona remained in Lund Island.

"I didn't really think about what would happen if Dan and I were in a serious relationship and how we would deal with it. I guess we'll try to have a long-distance relationship, but I've been in a relationship like that before and it's not my cup of tea."
