London, April 27 (ANI): Britain's smallest mother has opened up about the difficulties she faces while caring for her 18-month-old baby son, who is almost as tall as her.

Amanda Moore, 25, suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta - commonly known as brittle bone disorder, which has left her measuring just 3ft 1in from head to toe.

She became the shortest woman ever to give birth in the UK when her son Aidan was delivered by caesarean section last year.

And Amanda, of Hinckley, Leicestershire, thinks that her son could end up as tall as his father - Steven Fyfe, who is 6ft 1in.

"He takes after his dad. I always knew he would be taller than me but he's shot up," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

"When I sit on the floor to play with him, he is taller than me already. He's getting so big and strong that soon we'll have to tell him to be gentle with Mummy.

"It's been a struggle because he's been running rings around me since he was crawling. But now he's walking he's more than a handful for someone my size," she added. (ANI)
