Let’s all stop what we’re doing and give a big round of applause to an unnamed German mom who gave birth to her 13-pound, 4-ounce baby girl completely naturally. Yeah, we’ll let you think about that for a sec. Jasleen was born at University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, on July 26, and her weight and 22.4-inch length makes her the largest-ever newborn recorded in Germany. Jasleen’s mom had an undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, which can lead to larger newborns. She’s not quite as big as Addyson Gale Cessna, who weighed in at 13 pounds, 12 ounces earlier this month, but HER mom had a cesarean section to help her through the ordeal.
