Newborn Baby in Texas Weighs a Staggering 16 Pounds [VIDEO]

NBC

In a story that’s making mothers everywhere say “ow,” a Texas woman has given birth to a 16-pound baby that’s already two-feet tall — the height of an average one-year-old.

JaMichael Brown, nicknamed “The Moose” by hospital staff, was delivered by C-section (whew!) last Friday to Janet Johnson and her fiancé, Michael Brown. The tot now holds the title for the biggest infant ever born at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Texas.

The medical term for such large newborns is macrosomia, which literally means “large of body.” While JaMichael thus far seems pretty healthy, doctors say these babies often have high blood sugar at birth and an increased risk of obesity or diabetes later in life.
