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!
"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!
