Says Elisany: "The only thing that really affects us is when we hang out holding hands - it seems like he is my little brother or son. But I didn't choose him, God did."
And Francinaldo: "She is a beautiful person. She is tall but she is so pretty, with a beautiful face. I don't mind having a tall girlfriend. I feel free and relaxed as a person and don't care what people say."
