Also shocking is the fact that Jasleen was not delivered via a caesarean section like most giant babies. Instead, her mother gave birth to her the old fashioned way.
The largest baby to be born in the U.S. was a whopping 13.75 pounds and 25 inches, even larger than Jasleen.
However, the heaviest baby ever born was delivered in Canada, where a 7'5" mother and 7'11" father welcomed a 23 pound, 12 ounce baby boy, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Sadly, the baby died 11 hours later.
