Woman ‘Trapped In Child’s Body’ Dumps Boyfriend To Date Other Men After Controversy TLC/Instagram

Shauna Rae, better known as the woman trapped in a child’s body, has ended her relationship with Dan Swygart. The TLC star may be 23, but due to chemo stunting her growth as a child, she still looks like a young girl. Because of her appearance, many dubbed Swygart a “creep” for wanting to be with her romantically. Ultimately, this became too much to bear and the pair parted ways.

Dan Swygart hit back at critics of his relationship with Shauna Rae on Instagram, claiming it’s “disgusting” that people want to rob Shauna of a normal life.

“Me and Shauna are still just really good friends getting to know each other, but I think it’s absolutely disgusting, the attitude of some people,” he wrote. “How dare you take away her right, her human right, to have a connection, a friendship, a relationship with someone else? Who are you to say that she can’t have that?”

Were Dan Swygart and Shauna Rae ever even dating?

Things got so bad for Swygart that his parents had to give a statement to the Daily Mail. They insisted that their son was “just friends” with Shauna Rae and that they weren’t dating.

“They are just friends. There is no relationship. They are friends,” his mother said. His father added: “He has appeared in their show and that’s the extent of it. That’s it, it’s as simple as that.”

They might have been being honest, as Shauna Rae was seen in a recent episode going on a blind date with a new guy, meaning it’s likely Dan Swygart is no longer in her life.

However, Shauna’s date “got cold feet” and canceled the date before they even met up. Luckily, she was pretty pleased because she wasn’t really certain about the guy to begin with. “It just kind of showed all of these characteristics I don’t want in a person in my life,” she said.

She was quick to add that she’s still open to meeting a great guy. Fingers crossed that happens for her!
