England may now have claimed the title of the world’s biggest baby.

The heaviest baby delivered in England last year was born in Hull and weighed almost 16 pounds.

The newborn was recorded by the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust weighing in at an incredible 15lb 8oz (7.0 kg).

The results have emerged from a Daily Mirror freedom of information investigation asking hospital trusts the weights of the five heaviest babies recorded in their hospitals throughout the past year.

Earlier this year we reported, a teenager in India delivered a baby girl weighing a whopping 15lbs.

  • Holy smokes! I’m sure the last months of their pregnancies would have felt like eternities!!


  • Wow, oh my gosh, they certainly are big babies! I wouldn’t want to be carrying them around that’s for sure


  • Yes a large baby but also a very gorgeous baby!


  • That must have been a heavy pregnancy !!


  • 7 kilos? That’s really a lot! I was amazed once one friend had a 5 kilos daughter.


  • I’m amazed at the sizes of these babies – how did their mothers manage?


  • Their “poor” Mums, how did they manage walking around carrying such large babies during pregnancy. If they laid down they would have great difficulty getting up again. How you manage to retain your strength carrying a baby that heavy, lifting one out of the cot etc.?
