Biggest Baby in Town

On September 27, Tatiana Khalina, 42, delivered a healthy baby going by C-section at a maternity clinic in Aleisk, a town of 30,000 in the Altai region in southern Siberia. The delivery went perfectly normal and both mother and daughter were excited to be meeting for the first time. The only difference was her baby was a whopping 17 pounds. The heaviest baby recorded was 23.12 in the U.S. but it died soon after it's birth. The baby and her mother are fortunately being supported and well taken care of. We'll just have to see how well the baby is doing in the future.
