The idea of giving birth is scary enough, right?
Trying to squeeze another person out of your body may well be the most natural thing known to man, but it sure sounds pretty freaky. When I asked my mom how painful giving birth was, she said it was the worst pain she'd ever experienced, and she's a tough cookie. I would definitely take all of the drugs on offer, and I'd maybe take more drugs on top of that.
Let me tell you, though, one woman who has put me off ever giving birth - even with a fistful of happy pills - is Emma Millar from New South Wales, Australia. This poor lady had to give birth to a baby weighing an astonishing thirteen pounds.
Here's the story...
Do you know what else weighs thirteen pounds?

Funny how some people dream of having a heavy baby.I mean, I totally get it... fat babies are the cutest.
But I'm not sure that having one would solve my problems...

But baby Remi isn't your average chunky baby...
This is a picture of babies with sumo wrestlers...
Nor is baby Remi wearing some kind of sumo suit.
Carrying a baby this big must have been a struggle.Emma Millar had already given birth to two children before baby Remi. The family's other children were also pretty heavy - their second child, Willow, had weighed a staggering twelve pounds when she was born. That being said, she had no idea that Remi would get so big
They don't expect sumo-sized Remi to stay big for long.

Remi's mom's gestational diabetes played a part in the baby's size.According to Emma, the fact that all three of her kids were so big had something to do with her gestational diabetes.
Knowing that her babies would probably come out as mini-sumo wrestlers...Emma has chosen to have C-Sections with all three of her children.
Frankly, I think that's a smart move.I don't think any good would come from trying to squeeze out something the same weight as a gallon of paint.
I mean, you could always hang it over your kids...
@UNILAD My brother was 14lbs... he's 55 now and every time he annoys my mum she still reminds him she almost died giving birth to him 😂😂— Tina 🇮🇹🏴🐾 (@Tina 🇮🇹🏴🐾)1570979443.0
Introducing: Baby Remi.
via: nine.com.ausI swear, most of that sumo-weight is all in her cute lil baby cheeks.
Proper sumo-vibes, right?

via: nine.com.ausThere's just something so cute about baby Remi. Is it just me, or does she kind of look like an old man? Maybe we've got a Benjamin Button case on our hands. Speaking of babies... continue scrolling to see just how much baby Archie looks like Prince Harry!
