    Oui. Me dad's 5'8, mam's 5'4, bit of a nasty shock for him when he found out.
    Oh, and I'm 5'11.

    Yes.

    It'll be interesting if there is a poll or something - male or female vs taller than one or both parents. Surely it'll be interesting

    My mum's 4ft10, dad's 5ft9, I'm 5ft4. Both my grandad were my height though. My sister is 5ft9, she's a bit of a freak in the context of women in my family.

      Your dad is 6 foot 10? Or is that a typo?
      No typo, he really is 6 ft 10
      I'm the shortest and eldest child... My 15 yo youngest bro is 6ft 3 and it is just so odd.

        Wow that's very tall. I was just thinking of if I've ever even seen someone that tall lol. I might have..
        The height gene must be very dominant in your bro
