Russian woman's 12th baby weighs in at 7.75 kg

For those of us in the US, that's 17 pounds. I don't know what's more strange. A 12 pound baby or that people have 12 babies, you know, outside of the Middle East or Utah.

A Siberian woman who gave birth to her 12th child -- doing more than her fair share to stem Russia's population decline -- was stunned to find that little Nadia weighed in at a massive 7.75 kg (17.1 lb)

I thought I heard a ripping sound earlier.

Nadia was delivered by caesarean section in the local maternity hospital in the Altai region on September 17, joining eight sisters and three brothers, a local reporter said.

And she already has a weight problem. Rough stuff.

"We were all simply in shock," said Nadia's mother, Tatyana Barabanova, 43.

In between vomiting.

"What did the father say? He couldn't say a thing -- he just stood there blinking."

"You cheated on me with a hippo didn't you Tatyana."

"I ate everything, we don't have the money for special foods so I just ate potatoes, noodles and tomatoes," she told the reporter, adding that all her previous babies had weighed more than 5 kg.

"And I always followed each meal with a tall, cold glass of radioactive waste. I have no idea why she's so big."
