The Guinness Book of World Records has announced an Indian teenage girl from the town of Nagpur the World's Shortest Living Woman on her 18th birthday.
Jyoti Amge, measuring just 62.8 centimeters, took the title from the American record holder Bridgette Jordan.
Amge was officially announced the world's shortest woman on December 16, 2011, two years after she was adjudged the shortest living girl in 2009 as a 16-year-old.
"Doctors measured her in the presence of Guinness representative at three different time, both standing up and lying down," Amge's family said.
The crowned girl took the title as she celebrated her birthday with family members and friends at her residence in Hiwri Nagar in central India.
"I'm very happy to get this record," expressed the teenager, while posing for photographers.
Amge has a type of dwarfism called achondroplasia that has restricted her height to that of an average four-month-old infant.
Amge, who finished her high school some time back has already featured in a Japanese film and another produced by the National Geography channel.
