by in Parenting

A UK mom deserves an award. Not just because she recently welcomed her 4th child, but because she delivered the baby, who weighed in at a whopping 12lbs 8ozs, naturally!

And Baby Libby isn’t only twice the size of the average newborn, but she is also the biggest baby girl ever born in Britain.

New parents, Gemma and Ian Woods, are over the moon to finally have a baby girl but weren’t quite expecting her to arrive weighing so much

Gemma, 28, is a rockstar. For the delivery she opted to have a natural birth, with only gas and air pain relief.

‘I just couldn’t believe it when the midwife told me the weight – I thought I was hearing things,’ she told the Sunday Mirror.

adding, “When she was two weeks old we took a photograph of her next to my nephew Thomas, who was born three weeks early. He weighed 6Ib 13oz – and she ­absolutely dwarfed him.”
