We all know the famous Mountain from The Game of Thrones. He’s known for his tall height and a bulky body. Being Cersei’s bodyguard surely fits his character but his personal life is as fascinating as in the show.
And if we’re to talk about his relationships, we’re sure he must be very picky when choosing a partner for himself. Afterall where would he find a lady who’s as tall and broad as him?
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, aka The Mountain, is a huge well-built person who stands 6 feet and 9 inches. He is so tall and broad that normally, people would assume his girlfriend to be someone like Brianne of Tarth from The Game of Thrones.
Surprisingly, his girlfriend turned out to someone quite the opposite of Brianne. When you look at the couple you are for sure to wonder a few things about them and how do they manage certain things. Afterall a relationship based on certain compromises is probably the best one. Her name is Kelsey who is just 5’2”. She is really small in height as compared to The Mountain. When we talk about small, she’s really small. Compared to the Mountain she probably has to look up every time she wants to talk to him.
They met in Earls Kitchen & Bar in Alberta in September and have been dating since then. She worked at that same bar where Hafpor used to visit every now and then. It all started when Kelsey wanted to take a picture with him in the bar. Surprisingly, people all over the world adored the couple and they found themselves together. It was the perfect love story. A guy and a girl meeting like this like it was destined to be.
But there’s definitely much more to this as the mind wanders. People started wondering about things related to their relationship, because who are we kidding who wouldn’t? For example, many wonder how do they manage to kiss each other. Does he pick his girlfriend to kiss her or he has to bend down? So much so that one Instagram user asked her the very question. “How do you kiss? Do you jump into his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist? Please post a picture of this impressive action”. Things like this always come to play and people always ask about these things.
In a response which was very obvious, she said “ah, he bends, I tiptoe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!” Considering the fact that there is a huge size difference between the couple, they seem happy. And that is what matters. True happiness comes from the fact that you’re okay with the insecurities of each other. They play around with each other and the company. The even went on a trip around the world with each other as far as Spain and Iceland. Traveling the world together and shooting Game of Thrones is always on their schedule.
Later Hafpor got sick with a virus called Bells Palsy. He woke up one morning and found his face partially paralyzed. His friends took him to the doctor and later he recovered. These two are the living example of the saying “opposites attract”
Opposites really do attract and when looking at it this couple surely looks the most adorable couple on the planet. Sometimes when two souls are attached to each other they often collide in the form of true love in this world. We’re often unaware of these type of situations because most of the times we are wandering in life from one place to another and one profession to another but soulmates can hit you up at any point in life and you’ll just know it that you belong together.
