This 23-yr-old stopped growing at 2 ft—now, she holds Guinness World Record for smallest woman

At just 24 inches in height, Jyoti Amge is the same height as the average 3-month-old baby. This young lady from India is no infant, however. Now, at the age of 23, she is old enough to have children of her own. Amge, who weighs a mere 11 pounds (approx. 5 kg) was previously recognized for being the world’s smallest teenager until she turned 18 in 2011—when Guinness formally recognized her as being the world’s shortest woman. She is not expected to grow any bigger.

Amge has high hopes of becoming an actress—possibly in India’s own Bollywood, or Hollywood in America—and has already been featured on Indian television, as well as in a documentary entitled “Body Shock: Two Foot Tall Teen.”
