World's Tallest Man to Become a Father
The 7-foot-9-inch Bao Xishun and his 5-foot-5-inch wife are expecting a child.
These have been good times for Bao. He had lost his title of the Guinness World Record as tallest living man in 2006 to Ukrainian Leonid Stadnyk. However, Stadnyk refused to be measured early this year, and he was decertified.
In March 2007, just before regaining his crown, he married Xia Shujian. They've said that theirs is a marriage of equals, despite the fact that she barely reaches the top off his elbow. Proof once again that love conquers all.
