There are lots of Guinness World records out there, but this one truly stands above the rest with the world's tallest family and they live in Esko, Minnesota. Say Hello to the Trapp family, Scott, Krissy, Savanna, Molly, and the youngest and only son, Adam. Their combined height is 6'6" tall!

Adam was on a virtual call with his family from school in North Dakota and said Thanks to him they broke the world record because he stands at a whopping 7 ft. 3.7 inches, to which his dad replied thanks to me for wanting to have another kid. Obviously, besides holding the world record for being incredibly tall, they have a good sense of humor too.

Last week, Guinness World Records confirmed the Trapps were indeed the tallest family in the world  Savanna Trapp-Blanchfield the 6 ft. 8.5 in. older sister. said to FOX21:

It’s kind of blowing my mind a little bit like I don’t think I’ve completely wrapped my head around the fact that we actually have a world record, like the world. It’s not just Minnesota it’s not just the United States it’s the world.

Believe it or not, breaking the record was actually a lot of work. First, they had to enlist the family orthopedic doctor to do the official measurements, and then for 3 days straight they had to be careful not to walk around too much because it can compress your spine.

The Trapp parents must be very proud of their kids who not only were good athletes but also straight-A students!  The family mantra is they know they will all get stared at, that is a given so give them something you yourself are proud of and hold your head high.  What a cool group of people, congratulations Trapp family!
