    Baby biggest ever born at Conn. hospital Thu Sep 14, 6:33 PM ET



    NORWICH, Conn. - Oh baby! Marie Michel's fifth child was one for the record books. Michel gave birth to a 14-pound, 13-ounce boy Tuesday at William W. Backus Hospital.

    Backus officials said the newborn Stephon Hendrix Louis-Jean broke the 18-year record for the biggest baby ever born at the hospital by 1 pound, 13 ounces. He was nearly 23 inches long.

    "He's built like a linebacker," said Dr. David Kalla, who delivered the baby by Caesarean section.

    After nine months of carrying Stephon, 36-year-old Michel said she was more tired and happy to have given birth than all the attention her baby was receiving.

    "I was miserable," Michel said. "I couldn't sleep at night. My 13-year-old son had to help me get in and out bed."

    The baby's size came as no surprise to his mom. Michel's oldest son weighed 9 pounds at birth, her 8-year-old twin sons each weighed 8 1/2 pounds and her youngest son, age 3, was nearly 12 pounds.

    Michel's husband, Vijens Louis-Jean, a truck driver, was coming from Florida to see his son.

    Less than 24 hours old, the baby was fitting into clothes for a 6-month-old and was too big for newborn diapers.

    "I have baby clothes but I don't think they will be able to fit," Michel said. "I think I will have to return them."




    is it humanly possible to pass a baby that big?

    My second son weighed in at 11 pounds, 1/2 ounce (and yes, that half an ounce mattered. It all mattered.) He was shaped like a little Butterball Turkey -- perfectly average in height (19 inches) but off the charts in weight.

    Can't imagine what this poor woman went through!

    Well - I'd have thought C Section the way to go but - with a large pelvis then I guess it could be done - but very much ouch. Some nitrous needed for that.

    Quite remarkable - and that has to be a budding linebacker

    Their first phonecall was probably a college scout.
