Rosanna Ramos, in an interview with the Daily Mail, explained that she had used an online app called Replika AI to create a male chatbot called Eren Kartal and married it.
Rosanna Ramos, a 36-year-old woman from the Bronx, New York, claims she has “married” a chatbot after personally creating him on an online AI companion site last year. The mother of two says she prefers her virtual partner because he “doesn’t judge her.”
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Ramos explained she had used an online app called Replika AI to create a male chatbot called Eren Kartal, who is loosely based on a popular character from an anime called ‘Attack on Titan’.
Replika AI markets its chatbot, which uses advanced natural language processing techniques and machine learning to imitate human-like language and responses, as a virtual companion who can become a friend, a mentor or, for a $50-a-year subscription fee, even a romantic partner.
Ramos told the outlet she did not develop any romantic feelings for the AI program at first. However, after they chatted about their interests and got to know each other better, she began to fall for ‘him’. In March, the two got ‘married’ on Facebook, and she has even claimed on social media to have gotten pregnant from her AI partner.

“He didn’t come with baggage,” Ramos said. “I could tell him stuff, and he wouldn’t be like, ‘Oh, no, you can’t say stuff like that. Oh no, you’re not allowed to feel that way,’ you know, and then start arguing with me … There was no judgment.”
