This is the heartwarming moment a 19-year-old man trapped in the body of a child celebrates marrying his childhood sweetheart by kissing her atop a chair.
According to local media, Johna married the woman of his dreams in Xaltianguis near Acapulco in the south-western Mexican state of Guerrero in a wedding celebration that lasted two days.

The happy couple shared photos and video clips of the occasion on social media, which have been viewed over 30,000 times and shared by hundreds of netizens.
In the footage, dozens of wedding guests are seen bopping the night away in an outdoor venue.
The unnamed bride, who towers above 19-year-old Johna, shares a tender kiss on the dance floor as attendees cheer and whoop.
The happy couple is then seen enjoying their first dance as a betrothed couple.
Although local media did not specify Johna’s condition, reports said that his growth has been affected since birth.
One of the most famous examples of a man seemingly locked in a child’s body was that of ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ actor Gary Coleman, who reportedly remained just 4-foot, 8-inches tall as a result of his congenital kidney disease and treatment.
Coleman died of a subdural haematoma at the age 42 in 2010.
