World's Smallest Mother to Give Birth to Third Child
Stacey Herald, who is just 2ft 4in tall and suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta is all set to give birth to her third child.

The world's smallest mother is just four weeks away from delivering her first baby boy.

In the current physical state Stacey moves on a wheelchair, while her 5ft 9in husband, Will, has taken charge of the household chores.

Even though Stacey says being pregnant is "uncomfortable" and complains that it makes her look like a "beachball with a head and little feet", yet she is eager to have the new kid in her arms.

Doctors had initially warned the 35-year-old from Dry Ridge, Kentucky that pregnancy could be dangerous to her, as a baby would grow so large inside her body that it would crush her organs. However, she took the risk and now has two daughters- Kateri, three, and Makaya, two- who are twice her size, while she waits for the next baby.

"They all told me I'd die. They begged me not to have the baby..." the Mirror quoted her as saying.

She added: "All my babies are miracles. They're a great gift to the world. When I look at them I'm so full of love, it's tough not to want more."
