After his new wife gave birth to a baby with dwarfism, a Spanish husband was shocked to learn his bride of less than a year had an affair with a dwarf stripper at her bachelorette party.
“Neither her closest female friends or her family knew she had sex with the midget stripper but once she had her son in her arms, she broke down and confessed what had happened,” the Spanish media outlet LasCincoDelDia said, reports the Mirror.
“As you can imagine no one that sleeps with a stripper at her hen night broadcasts it or at least they try to take their secret to the grave,” the Spanish paper added.
The unidentified woman had no choice to divulge her secret when it became obvious the newborn had dwarfism.
It is not clear what the husband’s response was after he learned of the affair.
Many on social media were outraged by the woman’s behavior.
“Sad thing is she has the husband thinking it is his kid for 9 months,” wrote Cindy Figorski on Watch This: It was just a dream’s Facebook page. “That right there is pretty messed up. This is why you should NEVER EVER cheat regardless of the situation or the reasoning you come up for the right to cheat. smh.”
Others were more sympathetic.
“What if the wife was unsure if it was her husbands or the strippers at the time…she problem was hopeing for her husband the whole time( but regardless cheating is not cool in any way or form),” wrote Marley Monique Miller.
Dwarfism affects more than 650,000 people globally and is a condition often stigmatized, according to nonprofit B Stigma-Free.
“Throughout history, people with dwarfism have been misrepresented in art, literature and movies. Fighting against the stigma and discrimination associated with being a person of short stature is still the greatest challenge that people with dwarfism face on a daily basis,” the nonprofit notes.
“Today, people with dwarfism are challenging stigma and misperceptions by raising awareness and [ensuring] that people with dwarfism are treated with respect and dignity.”
