27-Inch-Tall Woman And Her Little Brother Have Big Plans
Christy Jordan describes her two younger children as "normal 23- and 21-year-olds. You have to kick them out of bed in the morning."
But when Bridgette "Bri" and Brad Jordan struggle to get out of bed, they're not like other kids. They're the Guinness World Records-certified smallest siblings in the world.
The 27-inch-tall, 18-pound Bri Jordan uses a step stool when it's time to hit the sack. Her 38-inch brother, a college cheerleader and accomplished gymnast, is a bit of a jock.
"Bradley especially doesn't seem to have a problem with being shy," Christy Jordan told The Huffington Post. "They've always been in the public eye."
Last year for a few months, Bri Jordan was also the record holder for "World's Smallest Woman." That is, until Jyoti Amge of Nagpur, India, who is just 24 inches tall, reached her 18th birthday.
She no longer holds the title, but the spotlight on her and her brother will get brighter Aug. 13 with the debut of "Big Tiny," a TLC reality show that shows the day-to-day challenges they face because of their short stature.
Bri Jordan is so small she showers in the kitchen sink, and while she'll go grocery shopping, chucking items in a cart is a major ordeal.
