A model in Brazil set on getting the world’s biggest natural bottom has told how cruel bullies taunt her over the size of her bum.
Fitness model Vanessa Ataides, from Brasilia, says she has to endure daily insults over her eye-popping 49.6 inches (126 centimetres) butt.
Vanessa, 37, who boasts more than 604,000 followers on Instagram, said: “I get insulted all the time for my physical choices, both on the street and on social media.
“It’s very hard for people to understand that not everyone is the same and that everyone has different tastes.”
Determined Vanessa starts every day at 4am with an hour of squats, deadlifts and bench presses.
Then she’s off on a gruelling four-kilometre (2.5 mile) run and is back before most people are awake.
She says her strict regime means she is less than two inches (five centimetres) away from achieving her dream booty of 130 centimetres (51.2 inches).
Vanessa said: “I face difficulties in training, because I feel a lot of pain in my back and knees. It can be so intense that I don’t get out of bed.
“It’s been four years since I’ve gone a day without experiencing some sort of pain. But the exercises work, because my bum keeps getting bigger.
“My dream is to have a gym at home so I can train even more. I’ve worked hard for what I’ve got.
“Even while in pain, I’m happy like this. I love to draw attention to myself.”
However, the influencer admitted to having used polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fillers to augment and shape her peachy bum, in addition to adding silicone implants.
Vanessa said: “I hate hypocrisy. I always tell the truth, because I don’t need to lie for society to accept me.
“I’m a well-rounded woman and the only person who has to think I’m beautiful is me. I do it for myself and not for society.”
The influencer explained she hesitated to undergo the PMMA procedure because of possible side effects like chronic inflammation, skin yellowing, and even wonky eyelids.
She said: “I wasn’t afraid, but a few weeks ago, I started to be afraid of having complications, as I’ve seen some friends remove the product.
“I know that each living person reacts differently, so I ask God every day to protect me and give me health, but I don’t deny that if I need to put more in to achieve my goal, I will!
“What about fear? I have one thing with me that I say, if it is God’s will for me to achieve my goal, I will achieve it regardless of my means.”
She then opened up about starting a new DJ-ing career, and said: “I have always liked music and since I don’t know how to sing, I decided to play.”
Aside from pushing her body to its limits, Vanessa is also strict about her food intake and revealed she eats up to eight meals a day.
She explained that her protein-based diet helps her gain muscle and lets her body recover faster following exhausting gym sessions.
Vanessa said: “I want the largest natural backside in the world.”
