World's Biggest Babies Ever Born
1Jasleen - Germany's Largest Baby
Jasleen's mother was found to have an undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, a condition which normally occurs around the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to a larger-than-normal newborn.
2Stephen Lyttle - Australia's Largest Baby
Today, he is 50 years old and stands a relatively regular 1.86 meters and weighs a proportionate 97 kg.
3Maxine Marin - Gave Birth to the Biggest Baby Girl in Spain
Larger babies are often delivered via Caesarean section, but Marin did not even need an epidural, a painkiller delivered into the spine during childbirth.
Marin, who lives in Spain with her partner from Colombia, said she knew that the baby would be big, "but not that big."
4George King - UK's Largest Baby
There was no indication that baby George would be this big; both of his parents were born at pretty regular sizes, and are not particularly big themselves.
Baby George's size caused significant difficulties for his mother, Jade. Mid-way through the delivery - after baby George's head had already popped out - he became stuck. His relatively giant size for a newborn meant that he simply was struggling to get his shoulders out.
According to Jade, "that's when things got scary," as about twenty medical staff ended up in the room working on freeing the baby. He was eventually delivered successfully and transferred to another hospital for specialist care.
5JaMichael - Texas' Largest Baby
Johnson and her fiance, Michael Brown, knew that a big baby was coming soon. Two weeks before her caesarean delivery, Dr. John Kirk, Johnson's obstetrician, said he expected the baby to weigh 12 or 13 pounds. However, JaMichael even surprised the doctor.
6Nadia Khalina - Siberia's Largest Baby Girl
719.2 Pound Baby Born in Indonesia
8Stephon Hendrix Louis-Jean - A 23 Inch Long Baby Boy
Backus officials said that the newborn, Stephon Hendrix Louis-Jean, broke the 18-year record for the biggest baby ever born at the hospital by 1 pound, 13 ounces. He was nearly 23 inches long.
The baby's size came as no surprise to his mom. Michel's oldest son weighed 9 pounds at birth, her 8-year-old twin sons each weighed 8 1/2 pounds, and her youngest son, age 3, weighed nearly 12 pounds.
9Ademilton dos Santos - Brazil's Largest Baby
Ademilton was born by Caesarean section at a hospital in Salvador in north-eastern Brazil. He is Francisca Ramos dos Santos' fifth child, and doctors said his unusual size was probably due to his mother's diabetes condition.
