At just 2 feet 4 inches, Stacy has been warned against getting pregnant, because a baby would grow too big and crush her lungs and heart.

Stacey has successfully proved doctors wrong three times, and now she and her husband Wil are thinking about having more children.

Stacey suffers from a rare genetic condition called Osteogenisis Imperfecta, which hinders her growth and causes underdeveloped lungs and brittle bones, reports The Telegraph.

"Three children is a handful at the moment, but I can see us having more babies in the future," Stacey said.

"We listen to doctors and respect them, but they don't always get it right, so we end up doing what we feel is best," she added.

The latest member to the family is seven-months-old Malachi, who inherited his mum's condition.
