Super-sized: Five-year-old Karan Singh, middle, who is 5ft 7in tall despite only being five-years-old, dwarfs his friends, Vansh Upadhyay, left, who is six, and Rajat Kumar, who is four

He's just five-years-old but Karan Singh is already 5ft 7in tall. Karan, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 for being the tallest and heaviest baby, weighing a whopping 7kg and measuring over 2ft - and he hasn't stopped growing since. 
Not surprisingly, height runs in the Singh family.

Karan's father Sanjay is 6ft 6in, and his wife, Shweatlana, is even taller, standing at a height of 7ft 2in. Until 2012, she was the tallest Indian woman. 
Karan dreams of becoming a professional basketball player and so far doctors in his homeland of India say there's nothing stopping him as he has no health problems.
