Woman gives birth to ‘giant baby’

‘A woman in Brazil has given birth to a “giant baby” weighing 17lb (8kg) – twice the size of an average newborn.

Ademilton dos Santos is the heaviest boy ever born in Brazil, says the Brazilian Gynaecological Association. [..]

Mrs Santos, 38, has four other children – aged nine, 12, 14, and 15 – who were all of normal weight when they were born.

“She knew Ademilton would be a big baby, but not this big,” Ms Leal said. “She, her husband and the hospital staff were caught by surprise.” ‘
