When he was born, he could not fit into regular baby clothes, so his parents got him clothes for six-year-olds.

At the age of three, he had to wear clothes made for a 10-year-old.

And even now at the age of 8, his shoe size is already 12 and sometimes his parents cannot even find them in the market.

His name is Karan Singh from India. He is only 8 years old and already towers at 6ft 6 inches.

In school, he doubles the size of many of his classmates.

But all these are not no longer new to him.

He has been a record breaker all his life, entering the Guinness Book of Records as both the heaviest and tallest baby at birth.

Now his Dad Sanjay, 41, hopes his son’s amazing height will be recognised again.

“When Karan was born, he weighed 7.8 kg and was over 63 cm in length. So that got him into the record books instantly.

“Then, when he was five-years-old, he got the record for being the tallest toddler. He is eight now and I want to get him into the Guinness Records again,” said Sanjay whose son is already his height.
