Heaviest Newborn In China Sets Weight Record: 15-Pounds At Birth
Chun Chun is a real bundle of joy, a 15.5-pound bundle mind you! Not only did this newborn baby boy make his parents very proud, but he also made an entire nation proud, and not just any country, but China, the country with the most inhabitants.
This gigantic baby was born in the Province of Henan, more exactly, in city of Xinxiang. Despite the baby’s immensity, the caesarean section which was performed to deliver him took a mere 20 minutes, and both the mom and the huge newborn are healthy and well. Chun Chun is not the only extremely big baby born in China. Between 2008 and 2010 another three babies were born weighting 15 pounds exactly, but Chun is now the heaviest baby ever born there due to the fact that he had 15.5 pounds.
The baby’s mom is 29 year-old Wang Yujuan and she’s not at her first pregnancy, she also gave birth to a perfectly normal baby girl who is now six years old. The proud mother declared that: “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 ten and 11 pounds. I never expected to hear that he weighs 15.5 pounds.”
The head of the Obsetries department declared that “little” Chun Chun is twice as big as any other newborn, and that they’re very happy they were honored to bring the baby boy in to the world.
The parents are also happy, not just because they now have the heaviest baby in all of China, but also because he’s a Dragon Baby, born after the lunar new year, in the Year Of The Dragon.
