28-year-old girl has been treated like a doll since birth
At first, it appears as though 28-year-old Angelica Kenova from Russia has a wonderful life: she is beautiful, has a figure to die for, and seemingly lives a fairy tale life. But something else is behind this rosy facade.

Since the day of her birth, Angelica has been treated like a living doll by her parents. They determine what she wears, eats, and where she goes. She still lives at home and rarely, if ever, makes her own decisions.
Her parents' goal has always been to make their daughter look like a Barbie doll. If you take a look at her photos, you'll see they've been pretty successful.
The similarity is uncanny...
Angelica's mother is in charge of her daughter's exercise and eating plan, which is designed to maintain her Barbie figure.
She claims that she's completely "natural," thanking both discipline and good genes for her appearance. No operations here, she says.
"Barbie is a role model and idol for little girls around the world. I'm grateful that this comes so easily to me," said Angelica, standing next to her parents. She only weighs 85 pounds and has a 20 inch waist. She spends hours at the gym every day, but claims she couldn't be happier.
Her dream is to become internationally known and she's on the right track; she already has over 13,000 Instagram followers.
However, despite all of her online fans, there is one thing that's been missing in Angelica's life: a romantic relationship. "It would be hard since my mother is always with me," she said. "All the men I know are just friends."
She doesn't want to disappoint her family, so she's never considered moving out on her own. She feels she owes something to her parents, "They've provided me so much. I'm grateful for everything they've done." She's not ready to leave the nest, but she does hope to find her Prince Charming (or Ken) someday.
Until then, she'll keep doing her thing in her pink doll world.
Angelica claims it's never too late to set out on her own — let's hope that's the case. The longer you wait, the harder it is I'd say, but then again, if she's happy, we're happy — good luck Angelica!
