An eye-watering congratulations to mother Ani from Jakarta, Indonesia, who has given birth to a 19 pound baby! The as yet unnamed baby boy is not the largest baby ever born, but is the largest child ever born in Indonesia. Weighing in at 19.2 pounds and measuring 2 foot in length, this little boy is the size of a one year old toddler; the average baby at birth is 7.5 pounds. Doctor's suggest that the baby may have taken on too much glucose in the womb of his diabetic mother, contributing to his weight, but they also report that he appears to be perfectly healthy. The size of the boy made the delivery, by surgery, a difficult operation, but hopefully he'll grow into a healthy young toddler and give his three other siblings a good run around!
