He Is The World’s Tallest Eight-Year-Old, And Yet Is Shorter Than His Mother

Published on 14 June, 2017 at 2:32 pm By

How tall do you expect an 8-year-old to be? Perhaps not more than 4 feet. But a boy of the same age from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh is taller than the adults.

Karan Singh is 6 feet 6 inches tall and measures twice as tall as any of his classmates. His mother Shwetlana holds the record for the tallest woman in Asia standing at 7 feet 2 inches.

Karan has been a wonder child since the day he was born. He entered the Guinness Book of World Records for being a giant 2 feet baby weighing 7 kgs. His mother tells Mirror:

When Karan was born, he didn’t fit into regular baby clothes. We had to get clothes for a six-month-old baby for him.

 

It is the genes that are doing magic for the boy. According to his mother, Karan is a healthy kid and the height doesn’t hinder his bodily functions.



Interestingly, even Karan’s father is quite tall for an average Indian man, measuring 6 feet 7 inches. The family gets a lot of attention for their unusual height but they don’t seem to get bothered by it.

The clothes and shoes are specially tailored for the mom-son duo as the height and growth don’t leave much choice for them. Shwetlana says:

My clothes have to be stitched specially. I don’t even find bangles or sandals in my size. Now we get Karan’s clothes tailor made as well.

Karan and his family are quite proud of their unusual height. The 8-year-old wants to play football like his mother and surpass her height some day. Shwetlana teaches her son basketball and hopes that he studies well and does good in his life.
