If you thought the romance between Felicity Kadlec and her undead sweetheart Kelly couldn’t get any stranger… well, it just did.
Back in September, 21-year-old Kadlec married “Kelly Rossi,” a zombie doll who she’d been in an on-off relationship with for the last five years.
Kadlec received Kelly, who she says is 37-years-old, as gift on her 13th birthday, and by 16 had started to fall in love with the creepy toy.
After trying to deny her feelings, and despite persistent intervention from her family (who unsurprisingly refused to let Kadlec take Kelly out in public), the couple’s unusual union was solidified by a “beautiful ceremony” in Tiverton, Rhodeland, and the pair has since settled down in Vinita Oklahoma.
Now, Kadlec and Kelly have consummated their marriage, and are even planning a family.
Kadlec told The Sun: “We are exploring our options. It would be me carrying the child and using donor sperm.
“We haven’t got as far as working out the logistics of it yet – that is a work in progress, but it is something we are serious about.
“We have a loving home, why wouldn’t we want to bring a child into that world and raise them in the loving environment?”
Growing up Kadlec was obsessed with horror movies, and Kelly was a present from her late father, who ordered the doll from a creepy doll website.
After her father’s passing in 2017, Kadlec says the zombie doll became her shoulder to cry on.
Describing their big day, which was attended by friends, family and eight other zombie dolls, Kadlec said: “Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and perfect – exactly the way I dreamed it would have been.
“I made sure that the whole wedding was done properly so it would be as official as possible, and we consummated the marriage afterwards.
“I am intimate with Kelly – I caress her and feel safe with her, and I feel a genuine connection when I’m having an intimate moment with her.”
“Kelly was the groom as she takes the male role in our relationship, she is a tom boy so wore a suit – I feel she was most comfortable as the groom.
“Getting married to her has made me feel so much closer to her, both emotionally and intimately.”
