Saneie Masilela, nine-year-old boy has become the world’s youngest groom to tie the knot with a 62-year-old woman last year. His wife, Helen Shabangu is mother-of-five – her children are aged between 28- and 38-years-old – as they repeated their vows a year on in front of 100 guests.

Oh and Helen’s long-term husband Alfred Shabangu, 66, who also was present that the ceremony. He said: “My kids and I are happy because we don’t have a problem with her marrying the boy – and I don’t care what other people say.”

Both families claim the wedding is simply another ‘ritual’ after Saneie was told by his dead ancestors to wed last year and his parents forked out £500 for the bride and another £1,000 for the ceremony.

The boy also said “I told my mother that I wanted to get married because I really did want to. “I’m happy that I married Helen – but I will go to school and study hard. “When I’m older I will marry a lady my own age. I chose Helen because I love her and, although we don’t live together all the time, we meet at the dumping site where my mother works regularly.”

We wish the best for the newlyweds.
