Jyoti Amge Weighs 12 Pounds, Stands Less Than Three Feet Tall








World’s Smallest Woman

People say she is adorable. Jyoti Amge has been declared as the world’s smallest living woman by Guinness World Records. The 26-year-old woman measures 2 ft 1 1/4 inches (64 cm). She weighs 12 pounds. She is a cook and entrepreneur. Amge is also an Indian actress. She has been a regular cast member in the Indian TV show, “American Horror Story: Freak Show.” She played the character of Ma Petite.

She Marries The Love Of Her Life
On August 30, 2017, Amge married the man of her dream. He has promised to love her till the end of time. He carries her in his arms wherever they go. After their marriage, it caused outrage online as those involved with social media were concerned about their activities in the “other room.”

Abnormality Prevented Growth
Amge suffers from a growth abnormality. It is called achondroplasia. This is a disorder of bone growth. It prevents growth and changes mostly in the long bones of the arms and legs. It limits the range of motion at the elbows, large head size, small fingers, but normal intellectual abilities.

Amge Has An Interesting Background
Amge’s family consulted a specialist when she was five years of age. This was when the family realized she was not developing correctly. The specialist informed the family that she would remain at the height she had attained for the remainder of her life. She attended a school where she had her own small desk and chair. Her clothes, jewelry, utensils, bed, and other personal items were designed just for her. When she reached the age of 27, she accomplished another first for a female. She visited every country on earth. And she did so in record time.

She Sometimes Dislikes The Way People Treat Her
The young Amge said, “When people see me on TV, they become very happy because they don’t have to interact with me.” It seems that people just meeting her for the first time are not sure how to react around her. They seem to feel they need to ask her many questions. She added, “When they start interacting with me, they ask me questions like I’m a baby or treat me like I’m a baby and hold me like I’m a baby, and that’s what they do wrong, really.” After all, she is a “grown” woman, and she wishes to be treated like one.
