They say that in love, opposites do attract. If there is a living proof of this mantra, that would be Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson and his girlfriend Kelsey Henson. While ‘The Mountain’ towers at 6 feet and 9 inches, the Canadian blogger stands at just 5 feet and 2 inches.
The pair has been very active in social media and their romance has been taking the internet by storm. But with such a huge height difference, fans have so many questions in their mind about their relationship.
Things have been going well for the Game of Thrones star, Björnsson. The fantasy drama series in which he played the role of Ser Gregor Clegane has been a global hit and its final season will be aired early next year.
Outside the series, ‘The Mountain’ is a professional strongman. He already collected major awards in various competitions including Europe’s Strongest Man three times and Iceland’s Strongest Man seven times.
Earlier this year, he added another chip to his collections as he bagged the World’s Strongest Man accolade, where he vested four-time American champion Brian Shaw who placed third and Poland’s runner-up Mateusz Kieliszkowski.
But the success does not stop there. Aside from getting big breaks in sports and show business, ‘The Mountain’ is also lucky to have found the love of his life in Kelsey Henson.
Pick Me Up!
The Mountain and his tiny girlfriend met at Earls Kitchen Bar in Alberta, where Henson worked as a waitress. Hafþór, meanwhile, visited the province to attend a strongman competition. The Canadian blogger asked the GoT star for a picture and the rest, as they say, is history.
Despite a dramatic difference in height, the two seem to be enjoying each other’s company, and their social media posts can attest to that. The pair has been dating since September and has travelled to different countries such as Spain, France and Iceland. They are also spending quality time in the gym. True enough, they are a match made in heaven. Take a look at some of their sweet moments in the photos below, which will make you swoon.
Recently, Henson finally gave the answer to one of the biggest mysteries in their relationship.
An Instagram user asked, “How do you kiss? Do you jump in his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist? Please post a picture of this impressive action.”
“Ahha he bends, I tiptoe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!” Henson honestly replied.
