A WOMAN has shared that she doesn’t care what haters think about the height difference between her and her husband, who she refers to as her “Petit Prince”.
Abbie Herbert often shares videos highlighting the height difference between herself and her husband Josh on her TikTok channel @abbieherbert.
Her videos are extremely popular with social media users, and she has amassed over 15 million followers on TikTok.
In one video, Abbie and Josh can be seen in the children’s section of a clothing store.
The caption to the video read: “Seeing how tall my 32-year-old husband is”.
Abbie, then got Josh to stand by a wall chart that has different heights and ages on it.

Josh reached the 64″ line, which the wall chart stated is the height of a 13-14 year old.
64″ is 5’4, which is well below the UK average height for men (5’10).
Mum of two Abbie towers over her husband at 5″10, which is far taller than the average height of a woman in the UK (5’3).
“I’m screaming, hahaha”, Abbie said in the video, in fits of laughter.
A clearly disgruntled Josh walked away from the wall chart with his head hanging low.
“I’ll be in the car”, he said.
In another video, Abbie replied to haters making comments about hers and Josh’s height difference.
The caption to the video read: “Whats wrong with our height?
“I love my petit prince.”
In the video, the couple can be seen performing a dance routine with each other, to Baby, by Justin Bieber and appear to be having a ball, messing around with each other.
Although height may not be an issue for Abbie and Josh it clearly is for many couples.
A study by the The Family Journal found that only 1.7 per cent of the women surveyed would consider dating a shorter man.
Another study, published by researchers in The Netherlands found that in 92.5 per cent of heterosexual couples, the male is taller than the female.
Abbie’s video has clearly left many open mouthed, as it has racked up over 1.4 million views in just a few days.
TikTok users raced to the video’s comments section to share their thoughts on the couples’ relationship.
Some were critical of their height difference, with one user stating: “I couldn’t date a short guy because I would feel like I was dating a boy not a man”.
However, many people were supportive of the couple, with another user stating: “It’s not about physical attributes, it’s what’s in the heart that counts.”
