Edward Nino Hernandez has just been officially certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s shortest living man. Edward is 27 inches /70 centimeters tall.
Although his mother says he hasn’t grown since he was 2 years old, Edward is a typical 24 year old in many other ways. He loves to dance, want to see the worlds and would love to meet Jackie Chen.
Nino’s reign is not expected to last long as Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is expected to take over after he turns 18 on Oct. 14. He measures about 22 inches and is currently recognized by Guinness as the shortest living teen.
From their apartment in Bogota, Edwards mother said the National University studied him for the first couple years of life then lost interest. The only health problem his mother is aware of is that he has cataracts in both eyes.
