A fitness model with “Brazil’s biggest bum” has defiantly announced that she is more than “just a giant butt” and has many other qualities no longer found nowadays.
Vanessa Ataides’ bum measures a whopping 126 centimetres (49.6 in), with the fitness model recently insuring her prize asset for BRL 2 million (GBP 280,815).
Vanessa’s huge bum is the result of several cosmetic procedures involving silicone implants and PMMA filler as well as hard work in the gym.
In her latest liaison with the press, she said she does not care about the nasty messages she receives on social media about the size of her derriere.
The beautician, who is married and has a teenage child, said: “I’m not just a giant butt. I have several other qualities such as being a determined, disciplined person, friend, companion and the main thing is I am a person of my word, something that is no longer found nowadays.
“By no means am I super resolved with everything in life, but I know who I am.
“No kind of comment gets me down. On the contrary, it makes me do something to make myself even stronger.”
Earlier this month, Vanessa revealed that her large derriere is causing her back pain and she sometimes needs painkilling jabs just to get out of bed.
She told UOL: “Today, at the age of 35, I feel the consequences that the weight of my bum has brought on me and I know it will bring me even more.
“I have a lot of back pain 24 hours a day. There are times I cannot even get out of bed and I have to give myself an injection to reduce the pain and to be able to get up.”
She said: “I wasn’t scared, but a few weeks ago I became afraid of developing complications, as I’ve seen some friends get the filler removed.
“I know that every organism reacts differently, so I pray to God every day so he protects me and gives me health, but I don’t deny that if I need to do more to achieve my goal, I’ll do it.
“But what about my fear? I say: if it’s God’s will that I achieve my goal, I will achieve it no matter how.”
She said: “I know this is all down to the weight I carry in my bum, but I don’t regret it. I’m happy and even with all the pain I still want more.
“I want to achieve my goal and I will manage it. I’ve learned to live with the pain. It’s been years since I knew what spending a day without pain is like. It’s the price I happily pay.”
