After divorcing her husband three years ago, obese Pauline Potter piled on so much extra weight she became the heaviest woman in the world, weighing a colossal 50stone (700lb).
But for ex-husband Alex, it only made her even more irresistible.
When he saw she had clinched the Guinness World Record for her enormous size, Mr Potter rushed to move back in with his former partner in Sacramento, California.
Mrs Potter, whose weight at its peak has now reached 52 stone, told The Sun: 'Most women think losing weight is the way to get their ex's attention - but for me it was just the opposite.
'Becoming the world's heaviest woman is what made him fall in love with me all over again and we're now working on getting our relationship back on track.'
The 47-year-old is now so big she cannot get around - but she is still dynamite in bed, her ex-husband told the newspaper.
'She can't walk, dress herself or even go to the toilet on her own - but I'm desperate to be her lover and caretaker again,' he said.
'I miss our sex life. Pauline could be 70st and we'd still have sex every single day because it's that good.
'Within the first day of being back together, we had sex six times in 24 hours.
'Even though one of Pauline's legs weighs more than I do, we're able to position her body to make sex enjoyable for both of us.'
'It's really dangerous for us to have sex because at any moment the bed could collapse and one of us could be seriously injured or even killed from the impact,' said the 46-year-old.
Mrs Potter admitted her ex-husband had to do most of the work in bed, but added: 'It helps that I did gymnastics until I was 12 so I'm very limber.'
The couple first married in 2003, when Mrs Potter and her son Dillon, 19, moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to live with Mr Potter and his son Sherman, now 21.
But Mrs Potter said her relationship with Sherman was poor from the start, and in 2008 she filed for divorce and moved back to Sacramento.
It was then that the devastated woman began stuffing her face with Big Macs, milkshakes, biscuits and cake.
She was soon consuming 10,000 calories a day, according to The Sun, where the recommended allowance for a woman is 2,000.
