He has 10 little fingers and 10 little toes, but litle JaMichael is anything but small.
A woman from Texas, USA has given birth to a baby boy who weighed in at more than 16 pounds or 7.3 kg, more than double the average weight of a newborn.
Baby JaMichael, nicknamed Moose, is the heaviest baby to be born at Good Shepherd Hospital in Longview, USA and reportedly the largest newborn in the Lone Star State and maybe the heaviest newborn baby in the entire world.
“Both his mother, Janet Johnson and father, Michael Brown are large people, and she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, which contributed to the baby’s size”, explained Dr. John Kirk, who delivered JaMichael.
According to the Guinness World Records , Ann Bates of Canada gave birth to the biggest newborn, in 1879, when her baby weighed in at a whopping 23 pounds, 12 ounces.
But that was 132 years ago.
For now, JaMichael rules da world!!!
