MONTERREY, Mexico (Oct. 27) - The world's heaviest man has tied the knot.
Manuel Uribe, who hasn't left his bed in six years, married his longtime girlfriend Claudia Solis Sunday in northern Mexico.
Manuel Uribe, who was once named the world's heaviest man, got married on Sunday in Mexico. In 2006, Uribe, 43, tipped the scales at 1,230 pounds. He's since lost 550 pounds.
Wearing a white silk shirt with a sheet wrapped around his legs, Uribe smiled as Solis, 38, walked down a flight of stairs wearing a strapless ivory dress, a tiara and hot-pink lipstick.
He later broke into tears as a notary declared the couple husband and wife in a civil ceremony attended by more than 400 guests. For the traditional first dance as newlyweds, Uribe and Solis held hands and swayed to a romantic ballad.
Uribe tipped the scales in 2006 at 1,230 pounds, earning him the Guinness World Record as the world's heaviest man.
He has since shed about 550 pounds with the help of Solis, whom he met four years ago.
Uribe said he's gunning for a new title: world's greatest weight loser.
