Woman gives birth to 15 pound baby

Published On: Mar 28 2013 12:13:53 PM EDT

After a difficult birth, a couple in England brought home a big baby boy  -  a very big baby boy. George King was born weighing 15 pounds seven ounces -twice the size of a normal baby.

His delivery wasn't easy.  George is so big his shoulders got stuck during delivery and he wasn't able to breath for five minutes.

Doctors gave him a ten-percent chance of living. Four and a half weeks later, he was allowed to go home from the hospital and now his parents are buying clothes for three to six month olds instead of newborns.

George's mom Jade Packer said, "He’s a little miracle.  Well, he's a big miracle."

Doctor's are trying to figure out why George is so big. His mom was just 6 pounds when she was born and his dad was just over 9 pounds.
