There’s big babies, and then there’s THIS big baby.
A teen mum in India has recently given birth to her 15-pound daughter, who is believed to be the heaviest baby girl ever born. How big is 15 pounds, you ask? It’s the equivalent of a typical six-month-old.
Wowza. That’s a whole “lotta baby”.
Of the mammoth-sized baby, local doctor Venkatesh Raju said: “In my 25 years of experience, I had never seen such a big baby. She is a miracle. I believe she is not only the heaviest baby born in India but the heaviest baby girl ever born in the world.”
The little girl (if you can call her that) is said to be double the size of the average newborn, and delivered via c-section (thankfully for mum). Her mother, Nandini, is just 19 years old.
The bub — who is currently unnamed — has allegedly overtaken the current world record holder Carisa Rusack from Massachusetts, who weighed in at 14lb 5oz at the time of her birth.
