Dwarf bodybuilder Anton Kraft, the only man in the world to lift four times his body weight pound-for-pound, is considered the strongest man in the world. Now, he considers himself “the luckiest man in the world” because he’s found love. According to the Daily Mail, the 4’4″ bodybuilder has met the woman of his dreams.
He’s reportedly in love with a transgender woman named China Bell. Of course, it’s nothing new for two people to fall in love, but Kraft, 52, and Bell, 43, are quite a unique couple. Bell, who was born an African American male and now identifies as a female, stands 6’3″ tall. So, it’s quite understandable why the dwarf bodybuilder and his transgender girlfriend turn heads. But, nevertheless, they’re happy. Now, they’re sharing details about their six-month love affair with the world!
During a recent interview, the couple openly discussed their relationship with details about how they met, the advantages of the differences in their personalities and their plans going forward. Needless to say, they definitely are the epitome of the old cliche “opposites attract.”
“I think Anton’s weightlifting is so sexy because I think he’s sexy – when you hold a world heavyweight title, that means a lot,” Bell said. “I’ve never dated a 4’4″ guy and I was just so curious. I’m glad I gave him a chance because he’s an amazing person. ‘I’m different and he’s different, and where we’re from, different is good.”
“Some people say that what I do is weakness, or micro-man syndrome – that I want to do something that I am not built for, to prove something,” Kraft said. “But I believe there’s only one winner – second is first loser. Second doesn’t count. Overall, I am one of the five strongest guys in the world, regardless of height and weight. And I am the only guy in the world who has ever benched four-times his body weight.”
Although Kraft has had a highly successful weightlifting career, he insists sweeping Bell off her feet is probably his most commendable feat. The dwarf bodybuilder also revealed how his girlfriend has impacted his life.
“I enjoy dating a transgender woman because she was born a male and is doing the utmost to become as feminine as possible. I find that most women born as women do not spend as much time on their appearance. Right now I feel like I’m the luckiest man on the planet – we are all happy and good and I have never felt better than I do now – and that would be thanks to China.”
Mirror Online reports that the dwarf bodybuilder plans to marry soon. However, details about the impending wedding have not been released.
