Is This The World's Tallest Toddler?

Towering above his friends at 4ft 5ins, two-and-a-half-year-old Karan Singh is believed to be the world's tallest toddler.

Karan, from Meerut, India, is the son of Asia's tallest woman, Shweatlana Singh, who stands at 7ft 2in tall.

Shweatlana told the Daily Telegraph: 'He was born big and is already half as tall as me, so I believe he will outgrow me soon.'

Not-so-little Karan is already twice the size of his friends of the same age. Karan weighed 13lbs at birth and measured 2ft, and he never fitted baby clothes and already wears clothes made for children aged 10.
