Well here's a story to make your eyes water...

Kendall Stewardson said that it wasn't 'TV appropriate' to comment on how it felt to deliver her nine-days-overdue 13lb 12oz whopper of a baby without pain relief - but she is delighted with her second son, nonetheless!

The mum from Iowa was expecting her little boy to be at the 11 pound mark, but baby Asher tipped the scales at a huge 13 pounds and 12 ounces - almost two pounds heavier than his older brother Judah, who was 12 pounds at birth.

Kendall and husband Joshua initially thought Asher was smaller than his brother when he was first delivered, so they were doubly surprised when he was weighed and measured to see he was three inches longer than his sibling, as well as being considerably heavier.

"Everyone like double takes when they see him, but for us it's pretty standard," his proud mum said.

Not-so-little Asher is now the record-holder as the heaviest newborn at the Mercy Medical Hospital, but was pipped at the post for becoming the state of Iowa record holder by a stonking 14 pounder who was born in 1980!
