A woman who is ‘trapped in the body of a child’ says that she is ‘open’ to dating other men.

Shauna Rae – who is 3ft 10in tall – stars in her own TLC show I Am Shauna Rae, where she documents her experiences and challenges of being an adult who looks like a child.

The show follows the 23-year-old as she tackles day-to-day life, such as learning to drive and getting a job.

The programme will also show Rae looking for love – something that has already been shrouded in controversy.

During the second season, viewers were introduced to Dan Swygart, a 26-year-old man from Wales who slid into Rae’s DMs and sent her flowers.

The series shows him even flying over to America to spend time with the reality star and her family.

Since appearing on the programme, Swygart has been the subject of backlash, which has seen both him and his parents publicly respond to the critics.

In a recent episode of I am Shauna Rae, the 23-year-old looks to have moved on from Dan and can be seen getting ready for a blind date with a brand-new match.

She explains that she has ‘never been’ on a blind date and admits that she has had ‘a bunch of worries’ about going on one.

Her father and sister drive Rae to her mystery blind date, but during the journey, Shauna turns to her dad and asks: “Do you want to give the guy another strike?”

When he asks her what happened, she reveals that he cancelled on her.

Later on, Rae explains that the blind date ‘got cold feet’ and cancelled.

The 23-year-old adds: “I was relieved when he cancelled.

“It just kind of showed all of these characteristics I don’t want in a person in my life.

As a way to cheer the reality star up, the three of them decide to ‘make the best of a bad situation’ and go bowling together.

Rae continues: “Even though it was supposed to be a date, I probably enjoyed it better this way with my family than I would with a complete stranger.”

She rounds off by saying though that she is ‘still open’ to finding love one day.

Rae, who weighs just 50 pounds, suffered brain cancer as a child and underwent chemotherapy.

This led to pituitary gland damage, which resulted in pituitary dwarfism.

This means that she looks closer to an eight-year-old rather than a 23-year-old woman.

She previously explained to the New York Post: “If you look at me, you see an eight-year-old.

“But I think if you take the time to look at the details in my face, in my hands, the maturity in my body – and I think if you take the time to actually talk to me – you really understand that I’m a 23-year-old.”
