With the final season of Game of Thrones behind us, it seems like as good a time as ever to revisit the question: “Um, so how does it work with the Mountain and his girlfriend?”
Backing up for a second, it’s important to note that The Mountain, who is played by 6’9″, 400 lb World’s Strongest Man champion Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson,″ has been with now-wife Kelsey Henson, 5’2″ 115 lb since 2017.

Both of them together, for comparison.
Naturally, the size disparity raises a lot of questions about their relationship, not the least of which is: how does Kelsey reach up to kiss her giant husband?
Recently a fan posed that very question to Kelsy on Instagram:
“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.”
And, surprisingly, she responded saying:
“Ah, he bends, I tiptoe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!”
This makes sense, especially since The Mountain has been known to pick up 800+ lbs like it’s nothing, so one can’t imagine picking up Kelsey’s 115 lbs is much of a challenge.
Despite their dramatic size difference, the couple, who met when Kelsey had been working as a waitress at a bar, and Hafþór stopped in while in town competing in a strongman competition, does seem genuinely in love and quite adorable.
Aww. They’re so cute I almost feel bad sharing this meme about them.
