This is bitter-sweet.
The world's fattest man has just gotten married.
43 year-old former mechanic Manuel Uribe, who hasn't been able to leave his bed for the past six years, just got married to his longtime girlfriend, Claudia Solis, this weekend in Mexico.
His wife made her entrance at the ceremony while walking down a flight of stairs, wearing a strapless ivory dress and a tiara.
Uribe, however, had to be brought in a bed decorated with a canopy in white, with flowers and gold-trimmed bows, while being lifted on a flatbed truck.
The truck was escorted by two police patrol cars through traffic before arriving at a local event hall.
Uribe wore a white, silk shirt with a sheet wrapped around his legs.
In attendance for the wedding, were over 400 guests. They were served meat, buttered veggies, and a five-tier wedding cake.
And as for their first dance, the newlyweds held hands and swayed to a slow song.
The wedding was closed to most media, though it will be featured in an upcoming Discovery Channel documentary on Uribe.
Before the wedding, Uribe told the reporters that were following him through the street to the wedding that, "I have a wife and will form a new family and live a happy life."
Let's hope he gets to live long enough to enjoy his married life.
Back in 2006, Uribe weighed in at an incredible 1,230 lbs! He then earned the Guinness Book of World Records' title for the world's heaviest man.
Luckily, though, after meeting Solis four years ago - with her help - Uribe has been able to lose about 550 lbs.
He now hopes to become the world's largest weight loser.
Good luck and congrats the happy couple!
