The young lad weighed an incredible 16lb 4oz (7.4kg) – over a stone – and measured 57cm long, which is more than twice the weight of and 7cm longer than the average newborn.

He was so big that his pregnant mum, from Wellington, New Zealand, struggled to bend over.

The not-so-little boy was born by caesarean section on Monday, after it took doctors three hours to administer an epidural to his mother.

As a result of his size, it’s likely he will need clothes meant for children who are six months old.

He’ll also skip regular newborn nappies, going straight to the third size up as they’re designed to fit babies weighing between 6kg and 11kg.

The parents, who don’t wish to be named, said he was happy and healthy.

His dad told Stuff.co.nz: “We are not that tall ourselves, so we are not sure where his size comes from.

“People are calling him the next Jonah Lomu (a New Zealand All Black rugby player), but we think he’ll be a concert pianist.

“He has a good set of lungs.”

During the mum’s final two months of pregnancy, doctors had guessed her son would weigh close to 14 pounds.

It is her second child, with her first boy also weighing more than average at 11.8lbs (5.4kg).

Despite his abnormal size, the tot doesn’t come close to beating the 138-year-old Guinness World Record for biggest baby.

In 1879, Canadian giantess Anna Bates gave birth to a boy that weighed 23lb 9oz and measured 76.2cm.
