Woooow...... A woman in Siberia, who gave birth to her 12th child, has given birth to a "gigantic baby girl" weighing 7.75 kg (17.1 lb) - more than twice the size of an average newborn (World Health Organisation figures : 3.2 kg or 7.06 lb). Nadia(L) was delivered by caesarean section on September 17, at a local maternity hospital in the Altairegion, joining eight sisters and three brothers.

"We were all simply in shock," said Nadia's mother, Tatyana Barabanova, 43. "What did the father say? He couldn't say a thing -- he just stood there blinking."

"I ate everything, we don't have the money for special foods so I just ate potatoes, noodles and tomatoes," she told the reporter, adding that all her previous babies had weighed more than 5 kg. [Quoted from Yahoo News]
