A Chinese mother gave birth to an enormous bundle of love this week.

The South China Morning Post reports that a woman gave birth to a whopping 14-pound baby boy at the Chongji Maternity Hospital in Yucheng City on Sunday. Not surprisingly, the baby had to be delivered by caesarian section.

A nurse who delivered the child said he’s the biggest newborn baby she’s ever seen.

“It’s the first time I’ve delivered such a huge baby in my 30-year career,” the nurse said.

According to World Health Organiztion growth charts, this hearty newborn already weighs what the average three month old child does.
