Settling down for a relaxing night in with his new bride of 61, eight-year-old Sanele Masilela says married life is child’s play.
The schoolboy stunned the world by wedding Helen Shabangu in Tshwane, South Africa.
He claims his dead grandad asked him to wed the mum-of-five, who already has a husband, from beyond the grave. Although the union is not legally binding, Sanele says he does think of himself as married.
He added: “The day was great, exactly what I had imagined. My friends thought it was really funny I was getting married but I do now feel like a husband.”
