Giant Baby from Siberia
A Siberian woman, Tatyana Barabanova, 43, has just given birth to a gigantic baby, weighing in at a jaw-dropping and belly-achingly large 17.5lbs, or 7.75kgs. In the picture above, the baby is not actually yawning, it is looking to be fed. The baby on the right is quite suitably stunned. The baby – a girl called Nadia – was delivered by Caesarian, which I am sure came as a relief to all involved.
She looks like a sumo wrestler or a daughter of the Michelin man. The husband was reported to have said nothing when he saw it: he just blinked. Can we blame him?
But this is not the largest baby ever born. Oh no. That honor belongs to an Italian baby born in 1955, at the whopping size of 10.2kg, or 22.5lb. Gulp.
