A HUGE baby has weighed in at a whopping over 13 lb 8 oz at birth.
Super baby, Olivia, had to be delivered by caesarean and measured 55cm (21 inches) in length.
She had set a new record at the Argentine region of Rio Negro after being born at the Cipolletti Clinic.
Proud mum Maria Fernanda Basly said: “We knew it was going to be a big baby but we didn’t know it was going to be a super-big baby.44
Maria said her eight-year-old son was 50 cm when he was born and added: “They’re big babies but Olivia is extremely big.”
While almost twice the size of a normal baby – at 7 lb 8 oz – the supersized tot has plenty of competition in the big baby stakes.

In 2013, British mum Maxime Marin had the heaviest natural birth in Spain, when 13lb 7oz Maria Lorena was born.
According to the Guinness World Book of Records the record for the heaviest baby in the world is shared.
Canadian woman Anna Haining Bates, who herself was a massive 7 ft. 11 in., gave birth to an unnamed baby boy weighing 22 lbs in 1879.

Her baby was not officially named and unfortunately died 11 hours after it was born.
In 1955, the heaviest baby born to a healthy mother, Italian Carmelina Fedele, weighed 22lbs 8oz.
