42-year-old Nannette Hammond has spent her entire life looking up to her idol Barbie and her life in plastic has been fantastic...ally expensive.
Despite clocking up an eye-watering $500,000 bill for her multiple surgeries the mother-of-five claims she has never been happier and that she doesn't care about what the haters say about her controversial look. She explained:
"I know the other parents talk and gossip about about me but I will tell you what, I don’t really care. Parents can think what they want and say what they want about my appearance but it doesn’t bother me. I’ve taught my children to rise above it.”
Hammond has adored Barbie dolls since she was a child and has always felt like her own looks could never match up to those of the gazelle-like plastic toys, she explained:
"I loved playing with those Barbies. Growing up, I felt shy and self-conscious about my looks and wanted to be just like the dolls. I imagined they’d always be happy and I felt drab in comparison. I didn’t like my hair color and as a teen, I really wanted bigger breasts.”
At just 5-foot-3, Hammond rocks a 28H bra and has had three boob jobs, a breast lift, veneers, lip fillers and eyelash extensions to achieve her cartoonish looks, but she claims “It’s worth every penny to look like this.”
According to Hammond, her five children aren't embarrassed about having such a bombshell for a mom and they even take her saucy Instagram snaps for her, she told interviewers that:
“[They] are just so proud of me and what I’ve achieved through surgery. They think I look great — my life is better than Barbie’s now.”
Whatever you think of Hammond's decision to base her life on the outlandish figure of a child's toy, there is no denying that she really does look a lot like her idol.
