A Connecticut woman has given birth to a boy the size of two average newborns.
"He's built like a linebacker," Dr. David Kalla told the Norwich Bulletin. "My partner and I joked this was our first set of totally conjoined twins."
Stephon Hendrix Louis-Jean weighed in at 14 pounds, 13 ounces, breaking a 15-year-old record for the largest baby born at The William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich. He was almost 23 inches long and his shoulders are so broad that Kalla said it was tough getting them out.
Marie Michel, the boy's mother, is diabetic, which probably contributed to her son's large size. Her older sons were all big -- although not as big as their baby brother.
Michel said the last few weeks of pregnancy were "miserable" because she was carrying so much weight.
Stephon already needs to wear clothes designed for 6-month-old babies, and his mother said she plans to start looking for football uniforms soon.
