Mum gives birth to a 12lbs 9oz baby boy measuring 2ft tall

What a whopper! Mum left astonished after giving birth to a 12lbs 9oz baby boy measuring 2ft tall (and he was so big he couldn’t fit the hospital scales!)

  • Amy Smit, 27, and her husband Zac, 28, welcomed baby Zagrys on 25th March
  • Baby Zagrys – known as Zeik – was born a whopping  12lbs 9oz and two feet tall 
  • Took two people to lift Zeik out of her during the C-section because of his size 

A new mum has been left astonished after giving birth to a whopping 12lbs 9oz baby boy measuring two feet tall who was so big that he wouldn’t fit on the weighing scales.

Amy Smit, 27, and her husband Zac, 28, from Cheddington, Buckinghamshire, were shocked when they first laid eyes on their son Zagrys – known as Zeik – who was born on 25th March.

Mum-of-two Amy said it took two people to lift Zeik out of her during the Caesarean section birth because of his hefty size, almost twice as big as the average new born.

Amy Smit, 27, and her husband Zac, 28, from Cheddington, Buckinghamshire, were shocked when they first laid eyes on their son Zagrys – known as Zeik – who was born on 25th March.

The couple couldn’t believe their eyes when midwives lifted their baby up for them to see for the first time.

Amy, who is also mum to two-year-old Lola, said: ‘He was so big that it took two people to lift him out.

‘There were all these really small ladies around me, and I heard one of them saying, ‘I need some help, he’s enormous’.

‘When they lifted him above the screen for me and Zac to see, my first words were ‘bloody hell’.

The couple couldn’t believe their eyes when midwives lifted their baby up for them to see for the first time.

‘We knew he was going to be a tall baby, because all the scans showed he was quite long, and both Zac and I are around the six-foot mark.

‘But we had no idea he would be that big.

‘He didn’t even fit on the scales when they went to weigh him, he was too long and wide. They had to make a makeshift plank thing to balance him on them.’

Amy added: ‘We had bought clothes for up to three months, because we expected him to be tall.

Mum-of-two Amy said it took two people to lift Zeik out of her during the Caesarean section birth because of his hefty size, almost twice as big as the average new born.

‘But none of them fit him. I had to send Zac out to buy six-nine month clothes for him.’

Amy and Zac’s first daughter, Lola, was also a big baby when she was born in September 2018, weighing in at 9lbs 2oz.

But Amy said she was struck by how different her appetite was during her pregnancy with Zeik, compared to her first pregnancy.

She said: ‘I just went off food. I never fancied any meals, I couldn’t eat meat or anything.

‘During my first pregnancy with Lola, I was snacking all day long, I couldn’t stop eating.

‘But with Zeik I just had no appetite. And I just keep thinking, imagine how much bigger he could have been if I had eaten lots!’

Now, at two months old, Zeik is weighing in at a hefty 14lbs 12oz.

And Amy said he is a happy and smiley baby – and that his big sister is ‘besotted’ with him.

She said: ‘Lola always wants to give him cuddles and be with him. She calls him ‘my baby’.’

And Amy joked: ‘Zac has already said he’s going to be a rugby player.

‘He’s South African so he’s really into his rugby, and with Zeik’s size, he’s already calling him our little rugby player.’  

Despite Zeik’s huge size, he does not quite win the record for the UK’s biggest baby – which goes to George Joseph King, born in February 2013 at Gloucester Royal Infirmary, weighing a staggering 15lbs 7oz.

And just last month, Amber Cumberland, from Aston, Oxforshire, gave birth to baby Emilia, who weighed a whopping 12lbs 14oz – just 5oz ahead of Zeik.
