Against all odds, 23-year-old Shauna Rae Lesick has defied gravity and found the man of her dreams—Dan Swygart. Despite having a childlike physique that makes it difficult to find true love, she has managed to capture Dan’s heart at age 26. This incredible feat was recently aired on I am Shauna Rae on TLC network, in which the couple introduced each other to Shauna’s mother and stepfather for the first time!
Even in the face of trepidation, a remarkable tale of courage and love recently came to light. Unfaltering, a 23-year-old woman in an 8-year-old’s body fearlessly introduced her parents to her new partner despite their concerns about her childlike appearance making them vulnerable to predators.
At the tender age of infancy, Shauna Rae Lesick’s body was adversely affected by a side effect from brain cancer treatment – stunting her growth. Now standing at three feet and ten inches tall, she is as diminutive as an eight-year-old girl despite being legally entitled to vote and drink alcohol. Her tiny frame weighs just fifty pounds in total.
Shauna Rae demonstrated that we should never let fear obstruct us from seeking our genuine joy and finding someone to share it with. It takes courage, bravery and determination to buck the trend and stand up for what you believe in – something this brave youngster has certainly done. Her love interest is truly fortunate being part of such a heartwarming story of solidarity and self-confidence.
After watching the first season of Shauna Rae’s reality show, Dan Swygart – a British man from Wales – was captivated by her and sent flowers in pursuit. Now deeply enamored with one another, they have started an affair that has resulted in him appearing on the show alongside his beloved partner.
“Dan and I met through social media, and we talked for a couple of months. He travels so often, so he doesn’t have service everywhere he goes,” Shauna Rae said. “We kind of just got along, and we have a lot similar in our lives.”
Dan’s love of exploration caught Shauna Rae’s attention, as she had always dreamed of seeing the world. Plus, she observed that he is a genuinely kind-hearted person – making him all the more attractive to her.
After Dan and Shauna Rae met online, they decided to take a trip together. Excited by their plans, Dan hopped on a plane to cross the Atlantic Ocean and meet Shuana in her Long Island hometown of New York. On this journey, they explored the local aquarium and enjoyed an exhilarating escape room activity with Rylee -Shaunna’s half-sister who is eighteen years old.
“Rylee and I were both very anxious because we didn’t know what he wanted,” Shauna said. “He was also talking to both of us casually, so we didn’t know who he was into.”
In the end, her mother and stepfather were both encouraging of her.
“Dan taking Shauna out of the country, I think it would be really cool. I think she’d have a good time,” her stepdad stated.
“I’m not so sure about that,” her mother added.
Shauna Rae is eager to reunite with Dan.
