A 15-and-a-half pound baby boy was born in central China. His averagely-sized parents are astounded, and he may be the heaviest Chinese baby on record.
A 15 and a half pound baby boy was born in central China on Saturday, with state media reporting the birth could be breaking a new record for the country's heaviest baby.
[Shang Lili, Xinxiang Maternity & Childcare Service Center]:
"A normal baby should weigh about six to eight pounds. This baby is twice as heavy as a normal one."
The mother and her large son were both in good condition in a local hospital in Xinxiang City, Henan Province.
The boy, named Chun Chun, was born just after the start of the Lunar New Year, with the Year of the Dragon considered a particularly auspicious time to have a child.
[Han Jingang, Chun Chun's Father]:
"My wife was no different from other pregnant women. She ate and drank normally as she should. But she's given birth to such a big, fat son. Today is the first day of spring in the Chinese calendar and he's a 'dragon baby'. I feel very happy."
His mother had sensed something special.
[Wang Yujuan, Chun Chun's Mother]:
"I clearly felt that my body was more clumsy than when I had been pregnant with my daughter. My belly was bigger than it was then. I guessed the baby would be between 10 and 11 pounds. I never expected to hear that he weighs 15 and a half pounds."
China's state run Xinhua News Agency said that between 2008 and 2010, three babies weighing exactly 15 pounds were born in China, and at the time held the record for the country's heaviest babies.
The heaviest baby on record weighed almost 24 pounds but died hours after his birth in Ohio, in the United States... back in 1879, according to the official website of Guinness World Records.
