Utah Woman Gives Birth to Giant 14-Pound Baby

14-pound-giant-babyA giant 14-pound baby was born in Utah and may bethe largest newborn in the U.S. The 14-pound baby, named Joel Brandon Jr., or “J.J.” for short, was delivered by cesarean section last May, shocking everyone.  The baby boy was almost double the size of most newborns.  The mother, Sara Brandon has type 1 diabetes, which can sometimes cause excessive growth for an unborn baby.  Regardless of the diabetes, the baby’s size is still extremely rare.

A baby girl in Pennsylvania came close to beating J.J., weighing 13 pounds, 12 ounces, KSL.com reported. But the title of heaviest baby in the world seems to belong to a baby named George King in England, who was born at 15 pounds, 7 ounces, the Daily Mail reported.

That’s heavier than some small dogs!
