Everyone in the world grows up wishing to find their special someone. They feel a need to find someone who they feel the most connected to in order to settle down and live their lives together.

Finding your special someone isn’t as easy as it may seem, especially for Leila. Her path to love would be paved with her mother’s unique sewing gifts and cracking knee-slapping jokes. (

Leila Hernandez was born in a small town near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She was an only daughter to Anita Hernandez, who was a seamstress. Her daughter had always been lively, taking on her mother’s traits.

Anita raised her daughter alone, which meant Leila idolized everything she did, unaware that she’d follow her mother’s trend when searching for the love of her life.

It is widely known that parents still see them as babies no matter how old their children become. Leila was twenty-six when she cried into her mother’s lap while they had another one of their late-night talks.

Anita said that her daughter found dating difficult. She didn’t enjoy seeing her daughter crying on her lap and decided to do something that would prove her love for her.

Pain In Her Voice

Whenever she found herself in a predicament, Anita made fun of the situation. It was her coping mechanism, so it was no surprise that she did the same when it involved her daughter.

Anita hated hearing the pain in Leila’s voice when she spoke of her past relationships. She understood that her daughter wanted to find someone who truly loved her, and her mother wanted to make her daughter smile again.

A Mother’s Claim

She had a huge smile when she told her daughter to meet Eddy. When her mother told Leila that this was her new boyfriend, she chortled. Little did she know how much of an impact Eddy would have on her future.

Leila’s due date came, and her mom, alongside a doctor and nurse, joined her in her room for forty minutes, where they successfully delivered Javier, her son. 

“The delivery was successful,” Leila’s mom reported. She’d spent two days sewing Javier together for her daughter, seeing how happy she was with her new life. This would only be the beginning of their lives as a family. 

Returning To Normal Life

Leila’s vacation days were finally coming to an end. She packed everything and got ready to return to the city where she worked. 

But since she was a mom and a wife, she found it difficult to leave everything behind. Could she walk away after having the happiest two weeks of her life with her mom, son, and husband?

The Reality Of Things


Reality was calling to Leila. As much as she hated it, she knew she needed to answer its call. With everything packed, she helped Eddy and Javier into their car and headed back to the city. 

By now, her story had spread all over her place, making her a micro-celebrity. Most people came to see the woman who’d married and had a child with a rag doll. While others were baffled by her decision, others left her utterly speechless with their responses.  

The Truth Behind It All

“Several of the people who’ve approached me about my decision have admitted that the dating game is the most difficult it’s ever been,” the mother of one shared. 

“It’s not guaranteed that everything will work out even if you find the one. Divorce rates are the highest they’ve ever been, and breakups are being handed out left, right and center. I am happy to have found someone who, although very lazy, will never leave me,” Leila said.
