Meet Kenny Easterday, the man with half a body. He is a 35 year-old man who suffers from an extraordinary condition and says he can live as a normal guy. Keep reading to find out more and see video here.

As a biography, Kenny Easterday was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on December 7, 1973. His age is 35. Kenny was born with a “congenital deformity of the sacral area, a very uncommon disorder known as sacral agenesis. It means he only has half a body. It sounds like a science fiction story, but believe it or not, this man is real and lives in West Virginia, USA. When he was six months, the doctors decided to amputate his legs and used part of his bones to fix his spine. They said he was not expected to live more than 21 years.

But life can be really surprising, Easterday learned to use his hands to walk, thanks to his father. When he was a kid he tried to use prosthetic legs but it resulted in being very uncomfortable to him, and he chose to use his hands or a skateboard to move around. At 10, he played himself in a documentary called ‘The Kid Brother’. At 19, Kenny exchanged vows with a woman named Sarah. He also has some appearances as a messenger on The Jerry Springer Show.

Nowadays, Easterday is living a normal life as he can with his fiancee named Nicky. His life is featured in a TLC documentary called “The Man with Half Body” in which the couple will discover if he is the father of Desiree, the seven year-old daughter of Nicky. According to her, they were together seven years ago and she got pregnant. She has two other children. And if Kenny is the father of the child, it would be a dream came true for him.

‘I want a child to carry my name, someone that can carry my legacy and be able to say ‘Well that’s my daddy’,’ he said.

It’s an amazing story, Don’t you think? See a video of Kenny Easterday, the man with half a body below.
