World’s Smallest Mum Stacey Herald Gives Brith For Third Time

by | 3rd, November 2009

stacey-heraldIN this week’s Closer magazine, we get to meet “the world’s smallest mum”.

How small is she? Well, she’s smaller than Cheryl Cole, who says “The baby’s on hold”. (Cancel the twins!) The world’s smallest mum is Stacey Herald and she is 35 and 2ft 4 in small.

Herald is mother two children, daughter’s Keterie and Makya. She is due to give birth to boy in January. Sys she:

“Doctors always tell me a baby could crush my lungs and heart and kill me.”

That’s kids for you.

“But something inside me just didn’t believe that was going to happen, I was right twice. There’s no reason why it can’t happen again. Babies are a gift from god.”

Babies are also the result of her egg being met by sperm presented by Stacey’s husband Will, who stands an impression 5ft 9in in his socks.

Stacey says she met Will when he played with her nieces. Stacey says there is something “really attractive about a man who’s good with kids”.

It’s hard not to now make an aside about Stacey being the size of a little kid.

A few years later and Will “got down on one knee” and asked her to marry him.

The rest is history, and a photo montage that enables Closer to look caring and readers to gawp at what is presented as a freak show. Not that Stacey Herald seems to mind. We first heard of her a year ago:

Guinness World Records is now investigating whether Stacey, of Dry Ridge, Kentucky, US, is officially the smallest mum on Earth. She has a genetic disorder called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which causes brittle bones and underdeveloped lungs and meant she has failed to grow.

But is she the world’s smallest mum? Not sure. But she is the world’s smallest mum who wants to tell you about it…
