World's Smallest Mother

Stacey Herald of Dry Ridge, KY, has given birth to Malachi, a healthy baby boy. At only 2 feet 4 inches tall, this makes a new world record for the smallest mother. Literally, a world record. Herald has osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic disorder that causes bones to become brittle and in danger of breaking easily. She has two other daughters, one of which inherited the condition but the other did not.

Herald says she and her husband want to have even more children in the future.

Was she taller when her daughters were born? Otherwise why is it a world record just now?
