Couple with ‘mismatched’ sizes defend their relationship after ‘sham’ accusations
| Last updated
A couple who've received backlash over their size differences have been forced to defend their relationship after online trolls claimed it was a 'sham'.
By 2023 you'd think the world would have learned that love comes in all shapes and sizes, but that hasn't stopped people from trying to insert themselves in relationships that have absolutely nothing to do with them.
Sienna has known from a young age that her preferences in guys were different to some of her friends, saying: "All my friends were into gym guys with six packs, I always preferred larger guys."
But does that make it unacceptable? Not at all.
After chatting for a while online, Sienna let George know she had feelings for him, and they went on to fall in love and get married.
They've acknowledged the differences between their body sizes, but despite the fact they've also literally created new life together in their young son, people online just can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact they're actually in love.
"People call me a 'gold digger' and say George should think about his health," Sienna said.
"We want to break the stigma around different sizes in relationships and you don't have to change yourself to find love or to be happy," she added.
Sienna, from Sydney, Australia, has even received death threats from trolls, and the backlash only increased when she and George started to make a living by sharing details of their lives online.
George said: "I don't see myself as being different to a normal size person. If I wasn't fat, it wouldn't be looked at twice. There's so much judgment because I'm bigger, yet men who like curvier women don't receive any hate.
"People can't stand the fact a fat man has an attractive wife. It breaks my heart that people attack others online just for being different."
Though the comments are 'hateful', the pair have made sure not to 'take it to heart', with George noting that 'you're not going to achieve anything through being horrible.'
The couple welcomed their son, Oliver, in 2019, before marrying last year.
On New Year's Eve, George celebrated Sienna for being a 'beautiful incredible talented wife and mummy'.
"What a year it has been," he wrote on Instagram. "We have achieved so much together and it has been the most incredible time being with you over the past four years. You’re everything that I wanted in a wife and more.
"Not only do we work together but you’re also my best friend and the only person that I feel happy and confident in being around.
"Thank you for being the most thoughtful kindhearted beautiful inspirational woman that I’ve ever met."
