Maci Currin, who is 6ft 9in, is an aspiring model. She has broken the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest legs held by Ekaterina Lisina, of Russia.
When Maci was born, she was only 19 inches but her mother, Trish noticed she was taller than the average kid when she was 18 months as she was 2ft 11in.
When she was nine, she was already 5ft 7in.
Maci’s mother Trish is only 5ft 7in, her father Cameron is 6ft 5in while her brother Jacob is 6ft 3in.
Despite Maci being proud of her height, she says long legs have some disadvantages too.
Maci told Barcroft TV: She said: “There are definitely negatives to having such long legs: hitting your head walking through doors, getting into cars, trying to find clothes that fit.”
“I don’t wear certain things like jeans because I can never find any that fit me. I do like to go to this one store in Colorado and they have extra-long yoga pants that I get.”
Maci also doesn’t like the attention she gets whenever she is out in public. She says when she is out in public people would stare at her and take her pictures without her permission.
She said: “I know when high school starts again, there’s going to be a new batch of freshmen who don’t know who I am. So they’re definitely going to stare and be like, “Wow, she’s so tall.”
“Also when I go to the mall, there’s just a bunch of people staring at me. There’s people that will get their phone out and try to take a picture without asking.”
“I kind of just like stare at them like, ‘Are you serious?’”
However, Maci doesn’t let these things affect her and focus on her dream of becoming a model.
The Guinness Book of World Records has not yet officially verified Maci’s record. Maci is hoping to get into the record books soon.
