Woman Gives Birth to 19-pound Baby!

An Indonesian woman gave birth - via C-section, of course -- to a 19.2-pound, 2-foot-long healthy baby boy on Monday.

Doctors suspect the boy's huge size is caused by the glucose his 41-year-old mother took for her diabetes while pregnant.

This is not a record, however. The heaviest baby ever born was delivered in Canada in 1879, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. It weighed 23.12lb and died 11 hours after birth. The record for a baby which survived is held by a boy born in Italy in 1955; he weighed 22lb 8oz.
