Sometimes if you tell yourself a lie over and over again, you actually believe it. Good luck with that, Barbie girl.

Daily Mail – Step aside Valeria Lukyanova, there’s a new Human Barbie in town, and extraordinarily, she’s been raised as a living doll since she was born.

Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, still lives with her hyper-controlling parents, who have been honing her drastic look all her life – dictating her diet and exercise programme so she can maintain her miniature six-stone frame.

‘Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences,’ Angelica says. ‘As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.’

Angelica has been dressed up as a Barbie doll since birth and is only allowed to go on dates if her mother, Natalia, accompanies her.

Yet bizarrely, the diminutive blonde – who claims to be a child psychologist and a ballet dancer as well as a model – regularly poses for half-naked photos, which her parents approve of.

Angelica maintains that her walking-talking doll looks were achieved without plastic surgery and has amassed thousands of fans on social media.
