Claimed the title: Lauren's legs are two inches longer than New York model Brooke Banker, who previously had the crown

A stunning model is gaining some serious interest - thanks to her endlessly long legs.

Lauren Williams has the longest-known legs in the US, with her eye-catching limbs measuring an incredible 49 inches from hip to heel.

Sports-loving Lauren, from Houston, Texas, revealed she has always had longer legs than others her age and believes she has a strong claim for America's longest.

In 2013, 5ft 11in Brooke Banker, a model from New York, laid claim to having the longest limbs in the Big Apple - her legs measuring 47 inches.

But Lauren, 26, who stands 6ft 4in, has a leg up on Brooke - boasting an extra two inches on her never-ending limbs.

Lauren's height and long-legged genes can be attributed to her family as her father, mother and twin sisters are all 6ft or taller.

She has US size 11 feet (UK size 10), and revealed that she can find it tricky to buy clothes that fit.

When modelling, single Lauren - who has worked on campaigns for global brands such as Nike - does everything from sports and fitness to high fashion and swimwear.

Having played volleyball in college, as well as being extremely active, Lauren also enjoys shooting sporty campaigns.

She added: 'As a competitive athlete this is an industry that I'm very comfortable with the work I do.

'I have a lot of background knowledge in the field, which has helped a lot.'

As well as modelling, Lauren works as an educator at a children's museum in Houston and enjoys travelling.

When out and about, her striking looks and long limbs mean she gets comments about her legs on a daily basis.

She said: 'Pretty regularly I have people comment on how tall I am or how longs my legs are.

'I don't recall a time when I realised I had such long legs, it was just always something about me.

'Most of my friends and family members are very excited about my title - they are always commenting on how lucky I am.'
