Big Assed Baby

An Auckland Tongan couple are celebrating Christmas this year with a little more than they were bargaining for - their newest addition to the family is believed to be the biggest baby ever born in New Zealand.

Compared to other ethnic groups, Tongan babies are the heaviest on average, but Angelani, born last week, has taken this to a whole new level. The newborn weighed in at 6.63 kilograms (14.1 pounds), more than three kilos heavier than the average newborn weight of 3.5 kilograms.

While Angelani's parents George and Kalo Manu were not expecting such a large arrival, they are are relieved she has been given a clean bill of health as some overweight babies are known to have medical problems.

The Malo's say Angelani is the best Christmas gift but say their newest and eighth child will be the last addition to their family.

Yikes, the poor mother!

San Nakji for President!

That can't possibly be healthy, that baby is probably gonna develop diabetes when it's older.
