We have a new number one!

Edward Nino Hernandez, a 24 year old man from Colombia, has been officially crowned the world's shortest living man by Guinness World Records! He is 27 inches tall, and weighs 22 pounds!

His mother, Noemi Hernandez, says:

"He hasn't grown since he was 2 years old. They never gave us a diagnosis."

Hernandez has a girlfriend, and has found work dancing in department stores and even acting in a film!

He says:

"I feel happy because I'm unique."

Amazing! What an awesome attitude!

The previous title-holder for shortest living man, He Pingping, passed away last March, and unfortunately, Hernandez will probably lose his title in October when Guinness' shortest living teenager, Khagendra Thapa Magar, turns 18!

Too bad! But enjoy the crown for the time being, bb!

And keep being awesome!

LOLs!

Sad!

He Pingping, a native of China, died today after being taken to the hospital for chest problems.

Pingping had a form of primordial dwarfism and was just over 2'5". He was only 21 years old. Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guiness World Records says of Pingping:

"For such a small man, he made a huge impact around the world. From the moment I laid on eyes on him, I knew he was someone special — he had such a cheeky smile and mischievous personality, you couldn't help but be charmed by him.

"He brightened up the lives of everyone he met, and was an inspiration to anyone considered different or unusual."

Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
