A Texas mom gave birth to a 16-pound baby at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, Texas last Friday, July 8, 2011, according to reports by several international news sites.

Janet Johnson, mother of the new-born baby, remained in the hospital as she was awaiting word on whether her son ranked among the biggest births in state history.

“Everybody was amazed that he was so big. I don’t think too many people have heard of having a 16-pound baby”, the 39-year-old Johnson said in a statement.

Recent reports mentioned that Victoria Ashworth, a hospital spokeswoman asked the state’s vital records department to determine whether JaMichael is big enough to be recognized as the biggest newborn baby.

“He is certainly the biggest in the history of the Longview hospital and was born”, said Ashworth.

Meanwhile, Guinness World Records says the heaviest newborn ever recorded weighed 23 pounds (10.43 kilograms), 12 ounces (340 grams), born to Anna Bates of Canada in 1879, reports said.
