Here's What The "World’s Strongest Little Girl" Is Doing Now.

Every single one of us has some sort of talent. Some of us can sing well and some of us are amazing athletes. While most people find out how talented they are at an older age, some people are quite young when they realize that they have a gift. Before this child could walk, her parents knew that she was special, but you'll never guess just how special she turned out to be.

Ukraine Family

In January of 1992, Varya Akulova was born in Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine. Her mother, Larisa, was a school teacher, and her father, Uri, was a retired circus performer. She was the only child, and she was dearly loved by both of her parents.

It's A Girl!

Uri truly believed that his first child was going to be a boy. In fact, he was so confident in this that he began to formulate a plan to rejoin the circus as a father-son duo act. Even though he was happy when his daughter was born, his dreams of hitting the big tent with his son were ruined. Well, at least that’s what he believed in the beginning.

Akulova Legend

You see, there is a legend that's been passed down through the generations of the Akulova family. The legend says that the Akulova have superhuman strength that was gifted to them from God. When Varya was born, her parents began to wonder if she was blessed with the divine gift. It took only a few months for Varya’s parents to receive their answer.

Strong Baby

By the time baby Varya reached the point where other babies were just developing their motor skills, she was able to lift herself into a fully standing position. When she was just one year old, Varya was beginning to show incredible displays of strength in her arms and hands. She was already showing signs of being a prodigy!

A New Dream

As soon as he realized that his daughter had such an incredible gift, Uri’s dreams of having a father-son act returned, but with a twist. Even though it wasn’t how he pictured it before Varya was born, he was even more inspired by the thought of having an act with Varya. Unfortunately, that was the only fortune that they would have to look forward to.
