A teenager in India has given birth to a baby girl weighing a whopping 15lbs – the heaviest girl ever born in the world.

The Mirror reports, Nandini, 19, welcomed her first child, a daughter, by caesarean section on Monday evening at a government-run hospital in Hassan in southern state Karnataka.

Dr Venkatesh Raju, the local health officer, said: “In my 25 years of experience, I had never seen such a big baby. She is a miracle.

“I believe she is not only the heaviest baby born in India but the heaviest baby girl ever born in the world.”

The Mirror reports, Nandini, who herself weighs 94 kg and stands 5’9 tall, had a smooth pregnancy throughout but was unaware she was about to give birth to a big baby.

Doctors confirmed the mother was not diabetic which usually causes obesity in new-born infants.

The baby is being kept at the neonatal intensive care unit and doctors are monitoring her developments before they discharge her in few days.

Dr Poornima Manu, gynaecologist who delivered the baby said: “She came as a big surprise for all of us. The surgery took place for nearly half an hour and it was free of any risk. She is really big and beautiful.


“She does not have any health issues like irregular sugar levels or thyroid and is breathing well. We were initially concerned about her sugar levels but that is normal. The mother had made regular visits for check-ups at the hospital and never showed signs of gestational diabetes or thyroid disorders.

“Both the mother and the child are doing fine and we will discharge them once we are confident of the baby’s health.”
